EHNW Salons

Existential Humanist salon

Our hope in hosting these salons is to create a space for practitioners and members of the EH community to gather, socialize, and explore meaningful topics.

We invite you to join us in an open conversation to discuss spirituality and its intersection with Existential Humanistic Psychotherapy. The conversation will be salon style where participants share what is present for them from whatever perspective is present for them – personal, psychological, spiritual, mythical, or anything else that might emerge.

 

 

Discovering One’s Meaning:
A Core Foundation of Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy

 

Date: Saturday, June 27, 2020, 11am – 1pm
Location: Online by Zoom, Logon instructions sent with registration confirmation
Cost: $20 for Non-EHNW-Affiliates, $15 for students, No Charge for EHNW Affiliates

For the time being, all our activities will be held via webinar (Zoom)

In Existential-Humanistic psychotherapy, we facilitate our clients to discover their unique meaning as they respond to the challenges and contingencies of life.

The importance of this approach is especially relevant as we all face a world-wide pandemic and racial injustice in our country. We realize that we just have so much control over our personal lives and world events. Some of us have discovered new meanings in response to this. Others are struggling with finding meaning.

In this salon, we will explore how the Existential-Humanistic perspective provides a lens for finding meaning within the uncertainty of what we are all confronting. We will explore how we work with our clients as they search for meaning and how our own search for meaning informs that.

Facilitated by: Daniel Parker, PhD. and Bob Edelstein, LMFT, MFT

Poetry, Lyrics, and Prose Webinar


 

Date: Saturday, July 18th, 2020, 11am – 1pm
Location: Online by Zoom, Logon instructions sent with registration confirmation
Cost: $20 for Non-EHNW-Affiliates, $15 for students, No Charge for EHNW Affiliates

For the time being, all our activities will be held via webinar (Zoom)

Poets, lyricists, and writers have creatively and beautifully expressed humanistic and existential themes with their words. We will be sharing some of our favorites, with reflections. We invite the attendees who would like to do so to share a song, a lyric, a poem, a line, or a passage that has personal meaning. As a group we will listen, reflect, respond, and hopefully be inspired. In salon fashion, there will not be a presentation, but rather a gathering to share thoughts with each other. Please come to share or to listen.

Facilitated by Dave Fischer, PsyD. and Gemma Baumer, graduate student
