The book
Hearth to Heart: Sparks and Flavours of Meaningful Living employs a meaning-centered intervention to explore historical sources of meaning in a two-fold way: (1) what we received from life and (2) what we give to life. Eleven logotherapists contributed a short description of their experiences with their loved ones who gifted them with a meaningful legacy they cherish and chose to share. The narratives describe the values which their loved ones demonstrated and which continue to be inspirational. The accounts are accompanied by family recipes which aid the recollection of the significant lived experiences. Throughout the recording and sharing of these narratives, logotherapists illustrate the role of experiential, creative and attitudinal values in the search for and finding meaning. The narratives reach out to the reader by providing an example for the revival of a meaningful existential experience which can be replicated. The book has two parts. Part One details examples of meaning and purpose in life. Part Two contains a hermeneutic-phenomenological inquiry, based on eleven accounts, which is aimed at highlighting the role of flavor sensations in the context of meaning-centered interventions.

Cátedra Abierta Viktor E. Frankl 2 h · FUCLAE Ayer se presentó en sociedad, en Buenos Aires, la Fundación Centro de Logoterapia y Análisis Existencial. FUCLAE se incorpora al universo de instituciones dedicadas al estudio, promoción y avance del pensamiento de Viktor Frankl. Destacados logoterapeutas, instituciones y colaboradores, se sumaron a la presentación y acompañaron el nacimiento formal de la nueva fundación. Con el compromiso de trabajar de manera conjunta por la dignidad de la persona y la construcción de un mundo de diálogo y paz, el presidente de FUCLAE dirigió unas palabras e invitó a todos a sumarse a esta propuesta. "Sabemos cual es la tarea -privilegiar a la persona y construir un mundo de diálogo y paz-, sabemos cómo podemos lograrlo -Frankl nos ha legado ese cómo- y tenemos las instituciones para intentarlo. Si no podemos lograrlo, que sea porque no pudimos, pero nunca porque no lo intentamos, que sea porque no nos salió bien, pero nunca porque hemos permanecido indiferentes. Hagámoslo juntos, porque es un logro que solo puede ser Dr.Claudio García Pintos CAVEF acompaña la creación de FUCLAE
