Harville and Helen will be presenting two lectures at the Imago Congress, in Vienna Austria.
May 17th: Journey to Wonder and Full Aliveness: Imago and the Space-Between
Where does therapy take place and what comes out of it? From a traditional perspective, therapy is the exploration of our inner world to free us from emotional pain and live peacefully with ourselves and others. This lecture locates the therapeutic process not in said inner world but in the space. The goal is experiencing full vitality and joy excited by a sense of connectedness that is felt and provides security. Instead of just dealing with the relief of suffering, Imago sees itself as the connection with the felt experience of our true nature as connected beings.
May 18th FINDING AND KEEPING THE LOVE: Experiencing Full Aliveness and Wonder in the Space Between
Finding love and keeping it alive is the dream of every human being. In this workshop, the participants learn how lovers find each other, how the interaction in the space can receive or destroy love, and how skills can be practiced that stimulate the experience of full vitality and wonder. The workshop will consist of both lecture parts and demonstrations and exercises, and will be open to all, who are interested in having a flourishing, wonderful relationship or for therapists who are helping others find and sustain love. Participants are invited to bring a life companion, Friend, colleague, etc. to practice various techniques.
