The Biography Log-book provides resources for work on an individual biography or life story. It provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature of a personal life journey from a holistic perspective, in a systematic and creative way. Within the Log-book, there are useful questions, engaging activities, and interesting information to help note the facts of a life and to reflect on incidents and experiences.
The Biography Log-book was created as a resource for Biography Work or Life Story Work by Karl-Heinz Finke and Laura Summerfield.
After many years of delivering Holistic Biography Work in various ways as a Consultant and Trainer world-wide, Karl-Heinz decided to make his teaching materials accessible to anyone interested in Biography Work. In association with Laura, the Biography Log-book was born.
The Log-book allows you to work on your own life story in a systematic way; in effect, to put yourself through a Foundation or Introductory course in Holistic Biography Work.
You can also use it to summarise another’s life story. It has been used as a tool for sharing a life story with family members. Some books have become legacy items to be left for the family to read as the record of a life journey.
The first Log-book was released as a print edition in July 2019, and was sold out within 4 months. It has been successfully used by individuals, groups, Consultants and Trainers world-wide.
Faced with the realities of world-wide distribution and storage, strong interest in different language versions, their own teaching and travel commitments, and an ongoing desire to keep updating their learning materials, Karl-Heinz and Laura made the decision to publish the second edition as an eBook.
The Charts from the Biography Log-book (Septennial Charts and Life Panorama Chart) are included within the Log-book eBook, but are also available as a separate resource.
