In this series of talks, using the reading of psychotherapeutic texts, our reflection and our interaction, we will approach existential issues that most of us, although we are thirsty for answers, at the same time avoid confronting them in our daily lives.
· The fear of life and the desire of Death, as a tug-of-war of conflict and hope
· The erotic dimension as a reading of unconscious desire
· The politics of digital technology as an antidote to autocognitive inquiry
· Self-disclosure as an investment in recovering lost time and the unknown self
· Loneliness as an opportunity for self-discovery
· Psychopathology as an opportunity for ontological resurrection
· The Christian faith as a healing path, as a method of deepening into our unconscious and ultimate self.
