  • Interview With Dr. Alfried Laengle: Doing Something That Makes You Happy Is Enough

    Dr. Alfried Längle is a well-known Austrian psychologist and psychotherapist, who founded a new approach in psychotherapy called Existential Analysis, grounded in the existential philosophy and phenomenology as well as in the ideas of Viktor Frankl with whom Dr. Längle was collaborating many years. Existential Analysis looks for a deeper meaning in life that can provide inner fulfillment, a serious feeling of happiness, because our inner commitment to what we do is what makes our lives happy and fulfilled. But how do you find this deeper meaning in the multitude of possibilities open to us nowadays? How do you avoid the temptation to choose what seems to be an easier way to happiness? How do you stop regretting your choices and worrying about missed opportunities?
