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.

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 a creative range of accessible resources looking at the Big Questions in life. Later, Natalie began to interview inspiring people from around the globe asking what ‘existential’ meant to them. This summit project welcomes people from all walks of life to watch these interviews, and hear about these 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 nearly 2,000 people from around the world. We are now excited to announce that the second Global Existential Summit ‘Mission #2’ is currently under development… watch this space!

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, 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?!
