Conference: Psique and Techne

We continue to think of technique as an instrument at our disposal, while it has become the environment that surrounds us and constitutes us according to the rules of rationality that, mixing the criteria of functionality and efficiency, do not hesitate to subordinate the requirements to the requirements of the technical apparatus. Without knowing it, we still move with the typical characteristics of man, pre-technological that acted in view of the objectives inscribed in a horizon of meaning, with a set of ideas and feelings in which it was recognized. But technique does not tend to a goal, it does not promote meaning, it does not open the scene of salvation, it does not redeem, it does not reveal the truth: technique works. And because its functioning becomes planetary, we propose to review the concepts of individual, identity, liberation, salvation, truth, objective, consciousness, as well as those of nature, ethics, politics, religion, history, of which age was nourished humanistic and now, at the age of the technique, must be reconsidered or refounded from the root.

Conference: CREATIVITY:  Understanding to be able to decide

It will deal with the fact that many things have changed and constantly change in this world. We need to incorporate this new knowledge so we do not make the wrong decisions. We cannot accept old knowledge or unsubstantiated beliefs that, in an increasingly complex current situation, can lead to losses. We must ask, at every step, "What is the evidence?" , and do not accept the lack of it.

Conference: Hope as a community

In the face of the socio-cultural situation, in which the ethical fragmentation that leads to the emergence of new forms of subjectivation due to the hypertrophy of technique, is seen as a frequent phenomenon, we see in community experience a place of hope. The community here is founded as a community of destiny in the experience of suffering. The community emerges as a place of ethical destination of suffering and as micropolitical action.

Conference: The Identity Rooted in the Hinge between Body and Mind

The present world is dissolving its limits, personal and social, thus creating a strongly polarized situation between confusion and rigid immobility. Globalization also invested in the social and the affective, passing through the psycho-social category and greatly accelerating the process of dissolution of the old identity. Whenever we are faced with this temporal acceleration, people tend to react in the opposite way: on the one hand they quickly lose touch with their identity and merge in the flow of the "liquid" epoch, on the other hand they resist tenaciously on their own present situation; and even dreaming of a mythical return to the past: Baumann's "retrotopia." All of this can happen in an individual universe, whether in the institutional or social world. The individual rite of passage, such as from adolescence to adulthood, if ignored, the sense of loss is evident. I think the possibility of rooting can be entrusted to our emotional feeling, which becomes the hinge of the connection between body and mind, a flexible way of being that overcomes the confused / rigid dichotomy, a way to restore a broader sense of individual identity , not exclusively rooted in the cognitive scope, and which represents a response to the need for intensity and universality.

Conference: How to find the rhythm that puts us in relation to the other

Our world evolves, humanity evolves in its extremes, constructive or destructive. 15, 20 years ago, there was already the question of inner exile with the solitude experienced in the very cities of the dormitories. The situation has further deteriorated with the introjection of mistreatment or abuse. Not only are people isolated, but more so, having integrated the fact that they have been left to drift, without the concern of their own needs. So what to do? How to find our rhythms? How to find yourself in connection with others? We will explore this subject under the umbrella of biodynamic psychology.

Conference: Confronting the idea of ​​progress

Facing global, ecological, political, financial and geo-strategic crises, it is time to confront the idea of ​​"Progress" coined in the century of light. What sense can we find and how to adapt the world to change? In what capacities should we focus on these times of ruptures. All traditions encourage us to seek deeper wisdom by connecting ourselves to our interior or by transcendental connection. The time when everything starts to fail is the time when everything can be rediscovered. It is not the time to behave cautiously is the moment of movement in the face of ecological destruction.

Conference: The body, place to be

The body is the place to be in any situation, for any need, action, in any   wisdom. The body is the source of regulation and integration of any experience in any human being. The body is the entrance to compassion, healing, and creation. The body is the real basis for the personal self, allowing us to orient ourselves to whatever is necessary for change. The body provides qualities and shows us the way to become a living contribution to transformation. 

We all have an ambivalent relationship with our bodies. The body is also extremely vulnerable, a source of pain, disease, aging and it will die.  Our so-called animal forces are embedded in our survival, sexual and social instincts. These instincts are leading our lives and we need to connect, respect and deal with them.

In this conference, I will explore the dynamic between the inner forces of the body to hold  “Chaos and Rigidity” and how to open up to a new embodied consciousness of the inner relationship of vulnerability and power.

Conference: People with disabilities, projects and future perspectives?

To change the cultural attitude about disability, you need to be aware of what it means by activating empathic processes, respect and solidarity. The inclusion of people with disabilities is a major challenge that can be addressed by increasing differences through the activation of pathways, interventions and methods that can support the disabled and the family.

Conference: Gender and social issues

Trans-identities have gained increasing social space in recent years. The debate about this condition allows a reflection that transcends, without giving up, the understanding of its nature. The epistemological and ideological difficulties in understanding a phenomenon that defies the normative beliefs and rules of the human relations plot reveals its transgressor character. The rupture with tradition is committed to evolution, but not without resistance and conflict. Thus, as in other fields of life, gender issues engender the present in the dialectical tension between the commitments of the past and the "promises" of the future.

Conference: Black body: indifference in death, indifference in life

We are interested in giving voice to what is silenced, to make talk, a method that allows us to understand what marks us as subjects, the fruits of a historical process. To narrate this history, therefore, is to take possession of the pains and sufferings in our bodies which, even today, translate into psychic suffering, abandonment, violence and hopelessness.

Conference: "Manifesto in expectation of a change "

In the future we will be the result of the past, today we are the past of tomorrow. The awareness of this fact will already lead at least part of our world to a more ecological communication, perhaps avoiding some of the serious dissociations of our time caused by both the misuse of technology and an escape from the real body to a virtual body, leading to identity to endless possibilities in society and politics. Destiny always seems to lead us to extremes of chaos or rigidity, struggle or flight, with an immense difficulty of tolerating dialogue and leaving the additions.

François Lewin e Christiane Lewin; Umberto Galimberti;

Rosanna de Sanctis; Menno de Lange; José Cotta e Rubens Kignel.
