Concepts of Soul within an Existential Framework

Friday 27th July 2018

Friday 27th July 2018, 10-4.30pm


How relevant is the idea of ‘soul’ in an increasingly digital and performance based environment?  How does modern man understand the idea of something within but also without, knowable and yet unknowable?  Concepts of ‘soul’ within an existential framework cover many different ways of looking at the intangible, the ephemeral and the spiritual.  We will look at ideas from different authors such as Heidegger, Jaspers, Frankl, Merleau-Ponty, Kierkegaard and Barth.


Come and explore your own attitude to ‘soul’ and matters of ‘spirit’ and learn how to help clients unfold their own meaning around concepts like the embodiment of soul in the modern age.
