Abstract

In the current socio-cultural context characterised by fragmentation, speed and uncertainty, care of the individual spiritual dimension risks being easily neglected and hindered. The compression of the so-called "time for oneself", of relaxed time, and the increase of a productive action-oriented time lead to failing to train reflexivity and to the inability to rest, which are, on the contrary, necessary conditions for the development of consciousness, in particoular in the youth age. A diary, as a personal writing tool, can be a significant educational tool, enabling one to restore the balance between doing and being, to re-read and review one’s own personal experiences and give voice to what we live inwardly. Furthermore, personal writing can also be a cross-cultural and interreligious element, as it allows us to focus on the dimension of spiritual research and not so much on the responses of faith, on the process rather than on the result. By going through some examples of personal and auto/biographical writing in the different religious expressions, we intend to explore the common roots and the particular orientations of meaning to be promoted in intercultural education contexts.
