“Existential therapy is an experiment in practical philosophy and social practice, rooted in the belief that we need to co-create spaces to dream, muse and reflect on the ways that we make meaning out of the rapidly changing world around us. In this first stage of development, community members are invited to uncover and untangle some of the existential snarls of life under late capitalism, through individual and group sessions. Participants can expect conversation, questions and links to key philosophical ideas and thinkers relevant to their dilemmas.” Kelly Lee Hickey
