Dealing with boundaries in Life & Therapy

Two workshops: May 19 -25, 2020 & optional add-on May 25 – 30, 2020

Find Yourself in Vietnam

With Vietnam as our backdrop, we will explore the themes of Limitations, Death and Grieving through an existential lens. Vietnam has a fascinating history, gorgeous landscapes, world-renowned food, and vibrant energy all of which will awaken your senses. Visiting Vietnam is unlike any trip you’ve taken before. Vietnam’s tumultuous recent history of The Vietnam War (or, as the rest of the world knows it as, The American War) ties into the themes of our lectures and academic activities.

Being in and experiencing Vietnam and Vietnamese culture in the context of Existentialism is a unique and powerful experience. Certain things like war, colonialism and historical events all have an impact on individual people, families, villages and countries. The history of this country makes an impact on contemporary life. Seeing how the war impacted the culture, resilience, community, architecture and food can give strength and hope and tell the story of a people and place.

We will have enlightening seminars with the acclaimed Analyst, Dr. Alfried Langle, scenic excursions, cultural immersion with locals, and more.
