“You have to come to Texas for a Congress, to taste great barbecue and to learn line dance!”

This was an invitation to attend the World Congress of Logotherapy in Dallas in 2017. We definitely planned to attend because I had to present my final project at the end of competition of my logotherapy studies at the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy in Texas.

Well, who can resist a barbecue in Texas? (it’s in Belgrade the Texan barbeque is in We later realized that line dance is just as irresistible as barbecue, or riding horses in Texas, beautiful city of Dallas and Forth Worth, rodeo, art in Deep Elm and many, many other wonderful things for which you should definitely visit Lone State Star!

line dance is a choreographed dance in which a group of people dance along to a repeating sequence of steps while arranged in one or more lines or rows. These lines usually face all in the same direction, or less commonly face each other. Unlike circle dancing, line dancers are not in physical contact with each other.

The origin of line dancing is not fully known.  The growth and popularity of line dancing has mainly been tied to country and western music.

It is likely that at least some of the steps and terminology used in modern line dancing originated from the dances brought to North America by European immigrants in the 1800s Throughout the 1860s–1890s, the style that would later be known as country–western dance began to emerge from these dances. Schools in the United States began to incorporate dancing, particularly folk dancing, into physical education classes in the 1900s, which popularized folk and country dancing as a social activity.

Logocoaching – coaching by applying basic principles of logotherapy.

Coaching – Sir John Whitmore defines coaching as: “Unlocking person’s potential to maximize their own performance” (Source: Whitmore, J. (2002). Coaching for Performance, Third Edition: Growing People, Performance, and Purpose).

Coaching is not a therapy in any sense!

Logotherapy – Logotherapy provides answers to questions about the meaning of existence. As a psychotherapeutic approach, it brings into psychotherapy the knowledge that in addition to the physical and mental dimension, a person also has a third, spiritual dimension. In Logotherapy, the focus in on the future, on tasks and meaning.
