is a great pleasure for us to invite you to the
on Taopsychotherapy and Western Psychotherapy"
in Seoul, August 21 to August 22, 2004.
The Forum has been organized as a part of scientific
activities to commemorate the 30th anniversary
of the Korean Academy of Psychotherapists.
As a fusion of the Eastern Tao and Western psychotherapy,
Taopsychotherapy is a new form of psychotherapy
which embodies a culmination of more than 40 years'
work by Prof. RHEE Dongshick and his followers.
It has already been well received throughout the
world, especially in the West where it has been
described as "the highest form of psychotherapy".
This International Forum will be recognized as
a salient event for creating dialogue between
the Tao and psychoanalysis, in this century. We
firmly believe that Taopsychotherapy will become
an epoch-making bridge between Eastern Tao and
Western psychotherapy, as well as a breakthrough
beyond the limitations of current psychotherapies.
We have invited eminent speakers from the West
who will present papers on these topics and discuss
important issues which relate to the audiotapes
of Prof. RHEE's therapy cases.
We will also arrange traditional Korean cultural
events and exciting tours for those who are interested.
Finally, we are very proud to inform you that
all materials for the Forum which are available
in English will be forwarded to those who register
