Gestalt is a practice of attending to our experience and style of being in the world in any given moment, in any relational and social context we may encounter. As practiced by Michael Clemmens, Gestalt focuses on our physical awareness, our process of interacting with others, and developing skills to utilize so that we may experience authentic contact.
This program is an opportunity to learn an interactive approach to Gestalt. We will explore and practice skills such as body awareness and sensation development, focusing awareness of physical and emotional states, attention to the interpersonal dynamic of facilitator /client and the importance of contextual field; that is, gaining a better understanding of what is happening within the group dynamic. The structure of the training will include some readings in Gestalt, experiential sessions, demonstrations, and practice labs to support the development of specific skills. This program is open to beginners as well as those with prior experience with Gestalt, and is helpful for anyone who wants to live a more conscious life.
