At the close of each day, tango your way into an awareness of mental health and the subconscious in shaping the lives of the people in Argentina through “psychotango,” with the practice, theory and case presentations that explore the use of psychoanalytic thinking and the tango dance as a tool for self-transformation. Use the lens of psychotherapy to discover and experience Argentina, where seeing a psychotherapist is viewed as a sign of health.

Where
Our meeting space will be the penthouse of a trendy modern building very-well located in one of the more chic neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The view from our penthouse is breathtaking with a panorama that includes the river Rio de la Plata and the city of Buenos Aires below!  Slip into the many bookstores here with volumes written by Argentines about cures to the psychological ills that plague people. Or sip coffee and discuss psychotherapy at cafe Villa Freud. Discover the “melancholia” of a nation where seeing a psychotherapist is viewed as  a sign of health

About Argentine psychotherapy
It has been said that “when it comes to choosing a psychologist, we are like women searching for the perfect perfume. We try a bit of this and a bit of that before eventually arriving at the right fit.”  Argentines scoff upon hearing that psychoanalysis has been on the wane in the United States and other countries, rivaled by shorter-term and cheaper modalities.
Residents of this country grapple with high inflation and an economic slowdown but seem to know precisely what they want out of their psychotherapy: psychoanalysis, and plenty of it. The number of practicing psychologists in Argentina is approximately 196 per 100,000 people compared with about 27 per 100,000 people in the United States, according to the American Psychological Association.
“There is no taboo here about saying that you see a professional two or three times a week,” says Tiziana Fenochietto, a psychiatrist at the Torcuato de Alvear Hospital for Psychiatric Emergencies. “On the contrary – it is chic.”
Psychoanalysis here is not just for the wealthy. The state medical system offers patients free sessions. “We say no to charity and yes to equal opportunity,” says Adriana Abeles, president and founder of the Fields of Psychoanalysis Foundation. When patients cannot afford to pay, they can volunteer in exchange for their sessions, doing jobs like repairing furniture, cooking or painting walls.

Cultural excursion visit and boat ride down the Le Tigre Delta:

The Tigre Delta is among the world’s largest, and only major deltas in the world that does not empty into a sea or ocean, several smaller rivers and waterways form a multitude of  water "streets" with sedimentary islands covered in forest and grasslands. With its islands and canals, Tigre is what Venice might have looked like before development. Tigre is named for the jaguars — which were called tigers — that once roamed here.
“Tigre is a way to refresh the head.”
We will visit Puerto de Frutos, the local fruit and artisan market. and take a small antique boat ride down its many waterways. At water level, the intimacy is astounding: kayakers stop one another for directions, and one can hear the conversations emanating from the docks of island houses built on stilts.
Latte-colored waters – rich with iron from the jungle streams flowing from inland South America –  there are hidden gems in this marshy region. Our boat ride into the delta offers peeks at local stilt houses and colonial mansions, and you can explore along some peaceful trails.
Everything is done by boat—buses, taxis, hauling services, etc. There are  even supermarket boats! If you don’t have a cell phone or a radio, you can put a basket on your pier to let the grocery boat know you need to buy something.
 Here is what Jeff, Mind Body Passport participant says about Le Tigre, "A surreal sort of place it looked almost staged like going on a jungle cruise at disneyland but it was real. It seemed like there was this sort of vibrant market place but frozen in time with pirate ships rusted and a way of life from centuries ago".

Since opening in 2008, the Cultural Center has worked, as a space for dissemination and promotion of culture and human rights. To that end it has called intellectuals, artists, musicians, filmmakers, actors and photographers, who with their daily contribution collaborate in the construction of a collective identity. The art problematizes from the poetic, and  illuminates the human condition. Together with scholars and researchers, artists are protagonists of the process required  for memory of this space of former torture, incarceration and death. Converted into a space open to the community what was once a flagship site of deprivation, exclusion and death is the biggest commitment and challenge to contribute to the construction of memory, truth and justice.  our cultural  guided tour aims to stimulate participation and debate, becoming a collective memory exercise.
