Event description
A fascinating series of talks exploring the transformative potential of transpersonal approaches to psychotherapy.

About this event

The term “transpersonal psychology” was first introduced by humanistic psychologists such as Victor Frankl and Abraham Maslow in the 1960s.

As a field of study, transpersonal psychology is concerned with the totality of human experience, aiming to integrate spiritual and transcendent elements within the framework of modern psychological science.

Unlike other traditions, it values wholeness, and sees an individual’s wellbeing as inseparable from, and interconnected with, the entire pattern of being of which they are a part. According to the transpersonal view, your mental health doesn’t just exist "in your head" as many other approaches assume.

Instead, transpersonal psychology views human beings in the broadest possible context; taking mental, spiritual, emotional, physical, and social considerations into account.

Transpersonal approaches are increasingly being utilised in a wide range of psychological therapies to help clients heal, self-actualise, and live with a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and connection in day-to-day life.

In this online conference, we’ll explore three of these approaches, with talks on:

  • The History and Future of Psychedelic Therapy; The fascinating history of how psychedelic plant medicines have been used as tools for healing and transformation in human cultures for millennia, how they are being integrated with modern psychotherapy to catalyse the therapeutic process, and what role these mysterious compounds are likely to play in the future of psychological therapy. – Jules Evans
  • Victor Frankl, Logotherapy, Existential Analysis & The Meaning of Life; How Frankl’s experiences in Nazi concentration camps informed the development of logotherapy and existential analysis (EA), why the search for meaning is our deepest motivation, and how EA brings philosophy, psychotherapy and spirituality together through a scientific methodology to help individuals unlock a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in their lives. -Dr Alfried Längle, M.D., PhD
  • Meeting the Shadow: Carl Jung's Discovery of Gold in the Dark Side; How the shadow forms in childhood, the common ways we experience it in day-to-day life, and how 'shadow-work' can lead to deeper self-knowledge, greater authenticity, and more freedom over our thoughts and behaviours. – Dr Connie Zweig, PhD

You’ll learn how these insights can benefit your own life, but also your ability to help others too.

Victor Frankl, Logotherapy, Existential Analysis & The Meaning of Life - Dr Alfried Längle, PhD

Alfried LÄNGLE, M.D., Ph.D., Dr. h.c.mult., professor and honorary professor, was born in 1951 in Austria where he still lives. He studied medicine and psychology at the Universities of Innsbruck, Rome, Toulouse, and Vienna. After years of hospital work in general medicine and psychiatry and in an outpatient department of social psychiatry, he started a private practice in psychotherapy, general medicine, and clinical psychology in Vienna (since 1982).

At the same time, he came into close collaboration with Viktor Frankl (1983-1991). He assisted Frankl’s lectures at the university for years and worked together with him in many relevant fields of Logotherapy. He is the founder and president (1983-2017) of the International Society for Logotherapy and Existential Analysis in Vienna (www.existenzanalyse.org), whose honorary president was Viktor Frankl until 1990. By this date, Frankl resigned from his honorary presidency because of Längle’s new developments in the field of existential analysis (methods, the implication of existential self-experience in the training and seminars, rejecting the exclusive use of the meaning paradigm in psychotherapy and enlarging its theoretical basis, implementation of biographical work). Dr. Längle is a Professor at the University of Vienna (Sigmund Freud University), Klagenfurt, and Moscow (HSE). He has over 400 publications, 2 honorary doctorships, and 6 honorary professorships, as well as a gold medal from the Republic of Austria for scientifically high contributions.


Meeting the Shadow: Carl Jung's Discovery of Gold in the Dark Side - Dr Connie Zweig, PhD

Dr. Connie Zweig, Ph.D., is a retired therapist, co-author of Meeting the Shadow and Romancing the Shadow, author of Meeting the Shadow of Spirituality, and a novel entitled ‘A Moth to the Flame: The Life of Sufi Poet Rumi’. Her new book, The Inner Work of Age: Shifting from Role to Soul, extends shadow-work into late life and teaches aging as a spiritual practice.

Connie has been doing contemplative practices for 50 years. She is a wife and grandmother and was initiated as an Elder by Sage-ing International in 2017. After investing in all these roles, she is practicing the shift from role to soul.
