Bible+ Club in May

May Programme – Phychotherapy and Faith

Host: Dr. David Nolland

Guest Speaker: Dr. Doris Möhsl

Doris is a practising psychotherapist with many years’ experience as a coach and counsellor. Before that she worked at her family’s hotel and all over the world as a tour guide.

Doris will give us a description of the three Viennese schools of psychology, and tell us about her own specialism, which is existential analysis, associated with the third of these schools. Its founder, Viktor Frankl, was interested in the exploration of “man’s search for meaning”, one of the motivations for which was associated for him mainly with belief in God. She will also tell us a little about how Austrian therapists officially “work” with religion.

Because of the 1 May holiday, May’s Bible+ will be held on Tuesday, 2 May.

Film Night

 LAST FILM BEFORE THE SUMMER BREAK!

Of Gods and Men“,  2010, Directed by Xavier Beauvois (120 minutes)

Loosely based on the true story of a group of Trappist monks of Tibhirene in the mountains of Algeria during the Algirian civil war, this excellent film won the Grand Prix at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. The viewer observes the quiet life of the monks among themselves and their friendly interaction with and assistance to the local villagers. This peaceful life is disrupted with the arrival of Islamic fundamentalists and the difficult discussions of the brothers whether to stay or go.

Starring: Lambert Wilson and Michael Lonsdale.

When: Tuesday, 11 April 2017.

Where: VCC Meeting Point, Untere Donaustrasse 39/3, 1020 Vienna
