The mountains are calling I must go.
I am excited that I will be presenting The Golden Shadow Method at the virtual International Meaning Conference this August.
The Golden Shadow Method is a humanistic approach to shadow work that teaches us how to understand the relationship between the dark and the golden light. In my method, I share new perspectives - how to understand and appreciate the lessons we receive from the dark nights of the soul, how to turn our wounds into wisdom and our pain into power. We learn that everything has meaning and purpose for us. I hope you can join me as I share these teachings for the first time at this special international conference that supports this view.
This conference will be a festival of love, hope, and faith, which transforms vulnerability to resilience.

It is the worst of times; it is the best of times. But we cannot celebrate the best without overcoming and transcending the worst. This fundamental principle of flourishing is what we want to covey at our forthcoming Meaning Conference.
By all accounts, it is the most consequential and most innovative Meaning Conference ever organized, because this virtual international conference involves more speakers and reaches more people around the globe, in spite of the pandemic restriction.
This conference is very special, because we are rising to new challenges in an unprecedented time, and we are celebrating the defiant power of the human spirit by reaching new heights and new depths for new solutions.
Psychology, especially the positive psychology of wellbeing, is being severely tested by the COVID-19 mental health fallout. Yes, amid all the talks of gloom and doom, we can still see an awe-inspiring rainbow on the horizon.
Indeed, we don’t know how strong we are until we have to be strong in order to survive. Adversity either breaks us and makes us bitter or makes us strong and better. This conference will be a festival of love, hope, and faith, which transforms vulnerability to resilience.
In addition to transformational keynotes, music (award winning singer Francine Honey, flamenco flautist and guitar duo Lara Wong & Melón Jiménez, and film/TV producer and pianist Matt Weisberg, among others), and Qi Gong (led by Qi Gong Master Mitch Hall), the Global Mental Health Summits consists of four symposia – The future of wellbeing research, The resilient mindset, The new science of flourishing thru suffering and The future of Mental Health.
The mission of the INPM is to advance the vision of Dr. Viktor Frankl and Dr. Paul T. P. Wong through meaning research, meaning-centered practice, and meaningful living groups. More specifically, the INPM advocates the big-tent approach of extending logotherapy and integrating it with the positive psychology research on meaning through collaborative efforts.
Through the writings of such influential doctors as Carl Jung, Alfried Längle, Victor Frankl, Alfred Adler, Paul Wong, and many INPM members, we seek to explore the current practices of positive psychology, and to help define the future of it.
CEs are available.
Hope to see you there!
