Journal Writing Paradox Burnishes Dialogue

My only resolution as this New Year (2015) unfolds in all its excitement, tradition and cheer is to engage more deeply with people and with the earth, so I’m writing this post with a rather cryptic title in the hope of engaging with you on a deeper level.

Journal writing is one tool that can take you and by extension your team into a deeper level in Dialogue Practice. Journal Writing burnishes Dialogue Practice.

The paradox of journal writing is that while the act of writing takes you deeper inside yourself, at the same time it takes you out of yourself. Much like a rubber band, except journal writing as a practice will help plant your feet firmly on the ground. Journal writing as a practice will help create a marvelous connection between members of your team and help to ensure dynamic success of the Dialogue process you’ve undertaken.

“He’ll take you up, he’ll bring you down, He’ll plant your feet back on the ground.” Moody Blues
