Product Description

Option to book training only or full tour with meals, excursions and accommodation!

Love is probably the greatest theme of our existence. Although it is common to all of us, it is not easy – and today it may be more difficult than ever to define. Love is multifaceted, yet ungraspable. Its impact is immense, though it also results in great suffering. Routinely sung about, and eternally longed for, love nonetheless faces multiple threats: materialistic, physical, erotic, spiritual, ideological, and egotistical. Still, each of those domains must be married with love, for they encompass it, and take up space in our lives. From where does love arise? What it is all about? What are its preconditions? And what are its existential characteristics? This presentation is a psychological trial, through which we will attempt to understand love a little bit better. These questions will help us to contribute to the understanding of love, in both success and failure.

Join us with internationally acclaimed Dr. Alfried Langle, in Vienna where existential analysis was born! The Vienna Existential Summit provides participants from around the world a unique opportunity to come together and discuss existential themes exploring love, relationships & couples. A rare opportunity to spend the week  in Vienna with Dr. Langle and like minded participants from around the world. Immerse in love, how we come together as couples and how to help strengthen and improve  relationships in counseling and psychotherapy.
