Professor Offers Introductory Life Context Workshop

Published: January 10, 2004
Dr. Andy Solomon will offer an introductory Life Context Workshop on Saturday, Jan. 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Plant Hall, room 327.

The workshop is based on the “intensive journal” method created by psychologist Ira Progoff in 1966. It features a self-exploration technique to develop personal growth and enhance creativity. Workshop participants are helped, through simple writing exercises, to explore the depth and meaning of their lives.


Progoff, a student of Carl Jung, founded the method after a study of creative people led him to conclude that a key to their creativity lay in their being more attuned to their lives than were noncreative people. More than 200,000 people have participated in the popular programs in settings as diverse as colleges, churches, prisons, hospitals, corporate office buildings and army installations.


Workshop facilitator Dr. Andy Solomon has been an authorized intensive journaling consultant for 24 years, and he has designed and offered undergraduate courses based on the intensive journal process since 1980.


Cost for this special introductory workshop is $50. Bring a bag lunch, a journal, your favorite writing instruments (no laptops, please), and a readiness to set the stage for an intensive personal journey. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
