INTERNATIONAL TRANSPERSONAL CONFERENCE: PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC
28th September – 1st October 2017
Beyond materialism – Towards wholeness
We are pleased to announce that the upcoming International Transpersonal Conference will take place on 28 September– 1 October 2017 on the premises of the Top Hotel in the magic city of Prague.
In terms of transpersonal psychology, this year is very significant in several respects. First and foremost, it has been 50 years since transpersonal psychology was founded as an independent field. It has been 25 years since the International Transpersonal Conference was held in our country. And this very year, the Czech Republic will yet again become the host country of this unique global meeting. Following on the tradition of large international transpersonal gatherings, we will meet once again, under the auspices of Stanislav Grof (key speaker) and the title “Beyond Materialism – Towards Wholeness”, in order to enrich each other and discuss the progress made in the field of psychology, spirituality, psychedelics & consciousness.
We will introduce lectures held by transpersonal pioneers (Stan Grof, Paul Grof, John Rowan, Vladimir Maykov), psychedelic leaders (Charles Grob, Rick Doblin, Janis Phelps), prominent thinkers (Ervin Laszlo, Richard Tarnas, Peter Russell), psychologists, psychiatrists and parapsychologists (David and Christel Lukoff, Etzel Cardeña, Sandra Harner, Dean Radin, Jenny Wade, Eduardo Luna, Regina Hess), world famous artists (Alex and Allyson Grey) and many other outstanding speakers, for whom spirituality is not an unknown expression and consciousness is not just a part of the brain.

About The Workshop
Integrative psychotherapy acknowledges there is no one truth but rather different therapeutic modalities that have greater or lesser relevance depending on the nature of our clients and what they are hoping to achieve through therapy. Dr Zana Marovic will discuss aspects of Eastern, Western and African indigenous psychological and spiritual cosmology aimed at integrating the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of life. You will have an opportunity to dialogue with colleagues of diverse orientations, experience and learn about holistic approaches, discuss therapeutic applications of breath, mindfulness and exceptional human experiences as well as reflect on ethical and cross-cultural aspects of integrative practice.
