Photos 7th Annual Conference of the East European Association for Existential Therapy

These pictures are from my remarkable journey to Lithuania to give workshops and a keynote for the East European Association for Existential Therapy(EEAET) conference held last September, 2012. These are scenes from my 3-day workshop.  As perhaps can be seen, the attendees were an engaged and diverse group representing 5 or 6 East European countries, including Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Russia, and Poland. The fellow I am sitting with in the sweater was my astute and gracious translator. Overall, the cross-cultural connections were beautiful to see, both in small groups and in one-on-one exchanges.  It was also enthralling to feel the commonality of interest in existential themes- meaning, purpose, fear, exaltation in and for life--and the shared yearning for a broadening world community.
