Seize The Moment Podcast


Dec 23, 2019

On episode 33, we welcome existential psychotherapist Kirk Schneider to discuss the sources of the major problems facing our culture: avoidance of negative emotions, fear of facing ourselves and the remnants of trauma, our disconnection from the awe of life, and technology’s influence on our ability to perceive the full complexity of who we are.

Kirk Schneider is a leading spokesperson for contemporary existential-humanistic psychology. He is an adjunct faculty member at Saybrook University in California and at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City. He is the president of the Existential-Humanistic Institute and a council member of the American Psychological Association. His latest book is The Spirituality of Awe (2019).
