Author Biography

Since the 1950s, Ira Progoff has been exploring psychological methods for creativity and spiritual experience with social applications. He is a leading authority on the psychology of C. G. Jung, humanistic and transpersonal psychology, as well as journal writing.The conceptual base of Ira Progoff's holistic depth psychology can be found in a trilogy of earlier books. The Death and Rebirth of Psychology (1956) crystallizes the cumulative results of the work of Freud, Adler, Jung, and Rank to build the foundation for a new psychology. Depth Psychology and Modern Man (1959) presents a holistic view of evolution as a foundation for nonanalytic method in depth psychology. The Symbolic and the Real (1963) discusses the significance of these concepts for modern society and demonstrates the personal use of twilight imagery.As Director of the Institute for Research in Depth Psychology at the Drew University Graduate School from 1959 to 1971, Dr. Progoff conducted research on life cycles and their relation to spiritual and creative experience. Drawing on the principles of these books and research at Drew University, he developed the Intensive Journal method in 1966 as a system of nonanalytic integrative techniques for drawing out and interrelating the contents of an individual life. He founded Dialogue House in 1966 as a means of organizing Intensive Journal workshops.Progoff passed away in 1998.
