Application of Logotherapy

Logotherapy comes to life

Our calling in life is inherently given, something we fundamentally experience ourselves to be, that we feel a deep and profound kinship with. It is also something that comes to us that confronts us through our lives. As a deep and rich potential talent, peculiar abilities, gifts, this spectrum of who I most fundamentally am, or sense myself to be, is also what I feel called upon to become. (Teria Shantall, Optimal Living Workshop.)

Logotherapy comes to life in the group workshops. Logotherapists from various parts of South Africa run workshops on numerous logotherapeutic topics, bringing their knowledge, skills and passion to the process of experiential learning. And, as a result, Frankl's teachings become integrated into one's life and meaning is experienced on a moment-to-moment basis. We evolve in the direction of who we are destined to be.

Frankl implored people not to make a guru out of him, but rather to take his work and grow and develop it and let it touch people's lives in a real way. Our senior students are designing their own Logotherapy workshops on different topics. For example, empowering teenagers to live a meaningful life, helping people survive retrenchment, bringing meaning and purpose to one's life in order to promote wellness, and many others. These will be offered to the public when the students graduate.

In my portfolio I will provide monthly updates on the Logotherapeutic workshops and courses being presented across the country.

Meaningful quotes

When we understand that man is the only animal who must create meaning, who must open a wedge into neutral nature, we already understand the essence of love. Love is the problem of an animal who must find life, create a dialogue with nature in order to experience his own being. Ernest Becker
