Welcome to the home of
The Global Existential Summits
Yearly FREE online summits with world leading existential thinkers sharing wisdom, inspiration, and hope for human existence.
January 2nd – 6th 2023 | Online | Free Tickets For All
How it works:
About the project….
The Global Existential Summits were developed by Dr Natalie Fraser following her training in existential philosophy and psychotherapy. As she fell in love with these powerful, liberating ideas, she realised that no one gave the same answer to the question ‘what is existential philosophy?’. She initially started ‘Existential Offerings‘ to provide people with a creative range of free accessible resources looking at the Big Questions in life – films, books, poems, videos, etc.
Natalie then began to interview inspiring people from around the globe asking what ‘existential’ meant to them, and how these ideas can bring healing and meaning to people. These are shared in yearly online summits that welcome people from all walks of life to hear about life-changing ideas in a more creative and accessible way than mainstream academia.
The first Global Existential Summit ‘Mission #1’ was launched in January 2022 then re-launched in June 2022 due to popular demand. Offering FREE ACCESS TO EVERYONE it reached thousands of people from around the world. We are now excited to announce the launch of second Global Existential Summit ‘Mission #2’… get your early FREE ticket here!
Through the summit talks you will explore questions such as:
– What on earth does ‘existential’ even mean?
– What is the meaning of my life?
– Why do I struggle, even when things ‘should’ be okay?
– How can philosophy be helpful for human wellbeing?
– What activites, music, art, books, and films can help me explore philosophy?
– How can I work existentially with clients and colleagues?
– How can attending this summit inspire me SO MUCH – is there magic involved?!
