The Cyprus Society of the SFL (School of the Freudian Letter) hosts a series of seminars where subjects from Cyprus will speak about “what they love doing for living.” They have been chosen on the merits of having the abilities to facilitate the appetite for creation to others, to transmit the energy to live, and to turn what they love into a way of living in the cultures where they operate as professionals.

This “way of life” cannot be without a desire and its Act. The purpose of these invitations to speak about “who they are through what they do” aims in assisting the audience, mainly analysts in formation, to comprehend further the question: “What is desire and how one identifies with it?” Each of the speakers was chosen for a particular reason, a unique attribute towards the “being alive,” which they have obtained through their experience as breathing individuals- something that makes them singular yet within the whole.

Elena Avraam, an exceptional Sport Psychologist with work experience mainly in the UK and Cyprus, is a woman whose life-hood is to motivate and to support athletes and teams in achieving results through inspiration. What can psychoanalysts learn from her Act?
