The Office of the Professional Human Being
The Office of the Professional Human Being will be appearing live at The 6th Annual Mountain Culture Festival, presented by the Catskill Mountain Foundation, in the Village of Hunter, New York on the weekend of July 9th and 10th, 2005.
Part performance, part opportunity for public and personal reflection, The Office of the Professional Human Being, presented by Alexander Komlosi, P.H.B., will be available for visits by festival goers on both Saturday and Sunday. The Office will be open from 10A.M to 1P.M. and 2P.M. to 6P.M. both days. No appointment is necessary for the initial twenty-minute session. Clients may register with the Professional’s Assistant. The Office tent will be located on the festival grounds.
Begun as a respectful parody of the psychotherapeutic process, The Office of the Professional Human Being has grown to become a real and virtual event during which people share and reflect upon the distinctive experiences that characterize what it means to be human. The initial consultation - conducted by Komlosi in English, French, or Czech - is free.
Festival goers will be able to visit The Office of the Professional Human Being and address such questions as:
-Are you interested in becoming a human being? Do you feel you already are one?
