Our human personalities evolve from an open-ended, creative dialogue between our inward “seed potential” (soul/psyche) and the external environment in which we find ourselves.  Human beings are not a product of the either/or of “nature or nurture”, but an ongoing process of creating a personal identity like none other in the universe.  Each of us is a one-of-a-kind being, surging forward into the cold reality of an unrelenting environment.

The Intensive Journal® ( I J) method of Dr. Ira Progoff is a guided journalling method for enabling persons to access their creative inward self in an ongoing, life-long growth process.  Progoff’s stated intention of the I J is:  To provide a tangible method of helping people move constructively through the transitions of their lives and to touch deeper levels of meaning while doing so”
