OLIVIER CLERC
(France)
Short Abstract
Olivier Clerc is a Franco-Swiss writer and workshop leader, specialized in forgiveness, which he defines as the resurrection of love. He is the author of 15 books with translations in a dozen languages. He is also the creator of the Circles of Forgiveness which are presently spreading in numerous countries. With his wife, he is the founder of "Les Journées du Pardon" (Days of Forgiveness), a yearly Conference in France, with 20 reknown international speakers on forgiveness each time.
In this lecture, Olivier Clerc will first redefine what "forgiveness" can mean in the 21st century, because this word means different things to different people, based on their specific background. Forgiveness will appear as being the key to healing the wounds of the heart. Then, Olivier will present the major obstacles to forgiveness, which are mostly amalgams, forgiving being frequently associated with or mistaken for : condoning, forgetting, reconciling, excusing, etc. This new understanding of forgiveness  allows for a much simpler and efficient way of applying it in our daily lives, on a personal and/or a collective level.

EROS and THE MYSTERIUM CONJUNCTIONIS
Healing, Love, Liminal Space, Sex, and Transcendent Creativity issue forth from the interplay of the known with the unknown. The libido, art, beauty, and love (Venus), spontaneously arise in the deep mystery of psyche (Neptune) from the generative seeds of space-time (Chronos). This intersection of linear time with the timeless infinite results in creative disorientation, transcendence, erotic and creative energies.  Love and creativity require relinquishing the security of firm ego defenses to the point of ego death and dissolution of personal boundaries.

The Power of Love and the Flow of Life - Embodiment and Personal Development
Transpersonal and Psychosomatic Dimensions of the Body-Feeling-Brain-Mind-Consciousness-Continuum and what love has to do with it.

The Mystery of embodiment will always be a relevant topic in the unfolding and personal development in a human being. The trans-personal is recognized and experienced through the person, and a person always has a body. Therefore an integrative transpersonal approach must also be body-oriented to address the free flow of life perceived as a state of love and pleasure.

The transpersonal language of the human body
The purpose of this job is to change how you see the illness and to use symptoms introducing it as a flag the body raise to observe, analyze and understand which ego’s attack we are suffering. Learning the transpersonal language of the human body, through the different techniques (meditation, Pneuma Breathwork, dreams), you’ll get a further tool of internal observation for studying those spaces "of shade" in which is fundamental to bring the light if we want to reach the individualization.

The eternal femenine, a transformative archetype in the therapeutic process
Healing takes on a deeper dimension when we transcend the limitations of understanding ourselves based only on our biographical experiencies.
Such is the case with one of the most symbolic and primary figures: our physical mother and every femenine figure representing her.
By contemplating and experiencing the magnitude of The Femenine Archetype in our process of self-discovery, we are able to liberate and transcend the most profound blockages that prevent us from loving more.

The integration of this sacred energy brings forth a new understanding. Liberating us from the sense of detachment and abandonment rooted in our psyche. Transforming and inspiring us with a new vision of ourselves and others.

Awakening the heart of love
Just as pearls are only to be found inside oyster shells, so love is only to be found inside our hearts. But if, for whatever reasons, we have become closed off to our hearts, or if our hearts will have shut down, our love nature will not be able to emerge properly, and so whatever kind of 'love' we manage to access will always be a very 'watered down' version of the real thing! The sad thing is that many of us think this watered down version - where we only 'love' people whom we think love us and only associate love with romance and conditionality -is the 'real thing'. It is not. It is the 'unreal thing'. In this lecture I will not only talk about what constitutes a deeper or a higher love and the vast transformational power this quality of love possesses, but I will also explore how we may access this love and have more of it in our daily lives.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH
I have spent most of my life investigating the nature of Consciousness. This has taken me deep into Nature and research labs, found me speaking to scientific groups and attending, running and giving retreats, becoming a teacher of Arka Dhyana (IM), an eclectic therapist and a researcher of the inner world.  It also has involved service to the greater community.  Through all this I have discovered it is truly only through love that we can change ourselves. Also I have found that it is only through spirituality that we can weave everything, including all humanity, into a garland of Oneness.

Short Abstract
Only love can unite all the world into a garland of oneness
Love is a force, a mystical force, the only force which can unite the world.  Comparing Superstring Theory with Arka´s theory of the Different Levels of Consciousness, we contemplate the idea that, in addition to the four forces discovered by Western physicists, there is another force, and that is love. Here we also explore these two theories and the role the Intuitive Meditation method plays in helping us access different levels of consciousness, which in turn opens us to ever-new perceptions of reality. The miracle of love as a transformative unitive force is highlighted throughout this quest.

Love your neighbour as yourself
"Love  your neighbour as yourself" from Mark 12, of the New Testament, is  echoed throughout human belief systems. I would like to examine this love from perspective of Christian, Buddhist, Sufi and other traditions,  and it's place in today's world.  What is the "mind of love" and the "heart of love"?
How can it resolve conflicts between nations? The same biological programming that drives us to violence and cruelty also provides us with  a bias toward kindness, compassion, love and nurture. Music is one expression of this love. Deep listening and loving speech is another.

Rites of Passage: ancestral psychotherapy and initiation
Rituals of transition, rituals linked to changes in nature  and Initiation Rituals… When ritual is connected with the Ancient Wisdom of the great traditions (mystery cults, religions, belief systems) it deploys its highest potential and, paradoxically, becomes an operative act, not merely metaphorical.
A comparative study of traditions reveals what symbols and myths remain alive and active and still function as detonators of internal processes of transformation, acting as caytalysts in the transcendence of symptoms and therefore as bridges leading from an ordinary level of consciousness to another highest not just one or a hundred experiences amplification, but rather integrating this awareness into their daily ability to love more and better.

Synchronistic Signs of Love
This study analyzed the role of the synchronicity in couple love.
Theoretical background. After the historic time line, the epochal contribution of Jung and Pauli, the parents of this concept is reveled.  They proved that synchronicity is complementary to causality and that there is a reality beyond consciousness and matter (Unus Mundus). After definition, characteristics and specifics of the concept, there will be several examples, by every major type noted by Jung, also from the love field.
The Brian Inglis questionnaire was applied to 26 subjects. The qualitative analyses confirmed the contribution of the synchronicity in love and gave more examples in this area. 
Love stories are frequently the role of synchronicity, which shows the involvement of a cosmic power.
The human is never alone, not even when this loves die.

Short Abstract
Transpersonal emotions of love and compassion in collective context.
According to several forefathers and theoreticians of transpersonal psychology, the highest stage of transpersonal and spiritual development is the self-transcendence. That means going from the ego-centered self love to the ego-less love, compassion and self-less  service. The transformation of love as an affective state of being into the love that encompasses our communities and broader contexts (the planet - Earth consciousness and the cosmic consciousness) are the pinnacle of the personal transformation. From the point of view of yoga, it also means activation of the heart chakra for the evolutionary energy to flow  and transform us from the "human islands" to the true "shores of the same ocean". Those transpersonal emotions become the main building blocks of the transpersonal social engagement and sacred activism.

Chinese medical theory presents the Heart/Pericardium (H/P) system and its role in complex psychiatric, emotional and developmental issues. To experience love and intimacy or the lack of it is the result of the functional capacity of the H/P system due to healthy support or traumatic insult. These can be simply identified through the diagnostic means of facial, vocal and symptomatic assessment. This is an experiential class with colorful graphics. Therapeutic possibilities using the tools from several disciplines will be presented.
This system is easy to understand and clinically use even for those with no previous familiarity with Chinese Medicine.

Love and Sex: An Eternal Quest for Unity in Modern Time
As Plato’s said, an Androgen is what we lost as human being separated through being woman and man, and this is why sex is considered as a primal tool for reunification and becoming whole. But when we follow sex the Love is becoming Metaphysical Impossibility! When we are in cage of limited perception of ourselves and our partner as “normal material human being” we are cutting ourselves from Infinite source of Great Love - our true human nature.
We will explore the path to Unity through sex and love in different cultures through the human history to understand the lost secret of true intimate connection.

The Sonoluminescent Therapy (The Healing of the Soul and Food for the Spirit through light and sound) is a therapy based on both listening and pronouncing certain sounds, but also the optimum circulation of inner light, working towards achieving a rebalance of the human light soul matrix and psychological healing.
It is a quantum therapy based on the cultivation of  willpower towards raised levels of consciousness and emotional equilibrium together with soul peace. The force of sound transforming in the heart's light leads to love. Light, as well as love, never stays hidden. They reach the infinity.

Spiritual Initiation to Heal the World
Spiritual initiation keeps traditional societies connected with the love that is the driving force behind reality and is grounded in nature. At one point it existed in all societies on earth.

What are the consequences of the fact that we no longer have spiritual initiation in our society?

In this presentation, I argue that the lack of spiritual initiation is the deepest cause of our modern culture's alienation from nature and from the love and connectedness with a higher reality that gives meaning to the lives of individual humans.
