Your Journal, Your Life-

a dynamic and reflective program for personal and spiritual growth presented by Maureen McCormack, S. L.

The seminar is being offered in Kansas City by the Center for Global Community and Collegium Spiritus as a step in helping people learn to dialogue with their inner processes and to encourage and train leadership for forming small intentional groups of individuals who will support each other in the work of inwardness. All are welcome.


The complete journal seminar consists of three parts. Parts one and two will be presented at this time, opportunities to participate in part three will be offered in the future. You may enroll for part one or for part one and part two combined. If you have completed part one previously, you may enroll for part two only.

PART ONE: Learn the basic rules for using the method by working through half of the workbook.

Friday, Oct 25th, 7pm to 9:30pm
(6:30pm check-in)
Saturday, Oct 26th, 9am to 4:30pm

You will be led through a series of journal exercises which will enable you to gain new insights into the meaning and direction of your life. An important goal of the workshop is to expose who you most deeply are and what your life is trying to become.
A notebook will be provided.

PART TWO: Work with exercises in the second half of the workbook. Prerequisite: part one.

Saturday, Oct 26th, 7pm to 9:30 pm
Sunday, Oct 27th, 9:30am to 5 pm

You will deepen your understanding of life experiences by working with dreams and images, events, and group connections, and through a unique form of meditation which uses the contents of your life as a resource for further experiences.

PART THREE: Now you have glimpsed the meaning and direction of your life from multiple vantage points, it is time to put it all together, to sense larger integrations that have been taking place, and to use your rich inner resources to step more purposefully into the future.

We will invite Maureen back at a later time when she will offer all three parts. Please let us know of your interest.


We are exploring the possibility of offering Continuing Education Credits.
