Existential Reflection Module (ENG)


Existential Reflection Module (ENG)



Many (young) professionals struggle with the relationship between the professional position of the person and who that person really is as a person. This imbalance can have major consequences, such as increasing issues of meaning, (self) alienation, lack of energy and motivation, tensions in the workplace and burnouts. From the point of personal well-being as well as in the context of professional performance, it is therefore highly recommended to constructively examine who you are as a person, which values you are driven by and what this means in concrete terms for your professional performance and therefore your life’s mission.

Katharsis Academy has developed a module that serves justice to the essence of the individual and supports them to fully live their true life. The essence of the participant is brought to light through assignments that provide step-by-step insight into the values that actually drive the participant and their significance for personal well-being. Subsequently, concrete tools are provided with which the personal essence and professional life can be aligned.

The module integrates experiences in the field of business and education with perspectives from business sciences and humanities. The latter includes philosophy, sociology, psychology and meaning. As a result, the existential insights that are gained are connected in a clear and workable way to  professional life and personal questions that the participant actually is dealing with.

The module consists of carefully constructed assignments that can be completed independently at own pace. In addition, as part of the module, two hours of  consultation are offered by telephone or on location, which can be scheduled at a time and day of choice. This consultation can be used when carrying out the assignments, when it is desirable to discuss the outcomes or when you are struggling with issues and emotions that you cannot resolve. Through the module and the associated consultation, a foundation is laid with which the participant can take steps in life in a sustainable and free manner, both privately and in a professional sense.
