The Journey Continues....

Yesterday was a big day for "Viktor & I" and Noetic Films. We were honored and grateful to have been awarded the very special Diamond Award from the California Film Awards in San Diego, California. Regrettably,  I could not join the award ceremony, which Mary tells me was quite an excitement. Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to the success of  "Viktor & I" and to all friends of the project who are reading these lines. This is a day of celebration!  From a small Internet cafe in Buenos Aires, I raise my glass to you!

My visit to South America continues to be an amazing experience. It started off with presenting clips from "Viktor and I“ at a Logotherapy Conference in Montevideo, Uruguay, and a few days later at a Conference in Curitiba, Brazil. I am happy to say the message was very well received. I feel grateful for the opportunity to visit South America, learn about the places,  make friends and share new information about my grandfather´s life. As a filmmaker I am also enjoying the visual beauty of the landscapes in Uruguay and the North of Argentina where I cannot resist taking hundreds of pictures. My next presentation of "Viktor and I " will be in Lima, Peru. Following the Peruvian Logotherapy Conference, I have decided to take a couple of days off to visit Machu Pichu, the sacred Inca city in the Peruvian Mountains. I can´t deny that this is one of the most exciting trips I can imagine but the great blessing is meeting and becoming friends with many new people in this wonderful part of the world.

I am always surprised that Viktor Frankl and his writings are known in places so distant in time and place to their origin. The only explanation I have is that Viktor tapped into the depths of the human experience and retrieved some fundamental truths which connect us all. As we continue to progress as a human race, terms like "Noetic" which he used to describe the dimension that separates we humans from animals, has become a popular term. (.it is the name my partner Mary Cimiluca and I gave to our California film company).

The search for meaning plays a central role as a motivator and source of healing in our lives. This has become an undisputed fact among psychotherapists and is now making its way into mainstream medicine. The ideas my grandfather seeded have become part of our global consciousness, and even if logotherapy is not a mainstream psychology, other schools of therapy have adopted many of its principles. What could be better?

I am glad to be able to spend a couple more weeks  in South America and experience its' rich heritage and the wisdom of ancient civilizations -and of course- to take more pictures!

"Saludos cordiales"!

I am very happy from your arrival to Peru and although I will not be able to attend the conference, it enchants the idea to me that you arrive and you bring a little more Victor Frankl.
I discovered the last year to it and from every day I has interested to know to there more , on the other hand the existenciales emptinesses it is a problem that every day persists more to the human being, and I believe that with the diffusion of the life of Victor Frankl and his philosophy much can be made to give turn to that and to help others to surpass its problems, I I believe in that in spite of many problems if we focused our life and we give a sense him, that will be our force, that reason why we want to continue living well.

I really enjoyed this blog post. Even though I speak to you frequently about Film items, I am always amazed at what a good writer you really are.

You are so right when you say that your GrandFather's work touches us at the depths of our soul and suddenly we can see a way clear to meaning.

I am so honored to know you and the entire Frankl/Vesely family and to be a part of this amazing project. As you know, my personal mission in life is to make someone's day better each and every day and you and Dr. V are helping me do it!

First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.

I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

I do take pleasure in writing but it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
Thank you!
