Viktor Frankl (author of Man's Search for Meaning) brought the spiritual dimension into the scientific arena. Frankl's ideas are powerful tools for individual understanding and growth.
This presentation will serve as an introduction to Frankl's philosophy and guide participants through transformative experiences that align values and action.
This meeting will deal with IDEAS HELD BY LOGOTHERAPY:
Body (soma), Mind (psyche), and Spirit (noos)
▪ According to Frankl, the body and mind are what we have and the spirit is what we are.
▪ What is "ultimate meaning?"
▪ We all go through unique situations and are constantly looking to find meaning.
▪ We are free to do this at all times in response to certain demands.
