Embodied Relational Gestalt

Sep 23 - Oct 21, 2018 Begins in 4 months
with Michael Clemmens

This month-long program is focused on Gestalt as a group process. Gestalt offers the opportunity to experience and explore our own process in relation to others and the context of the present moment. We will create a group that can contain the varieties of each person’s unique way of being and allow us to experience the power of the greater whole, the group. Because of the importance of creating an ongoing collective, it is crucial that all students attend each session. No prior experience with Gestalt or group process is necessary.

Introduction to Gestalt

Oct 12 - 14, 2018 Begins in 5 months
with Michael Clemmens

We develop relationships with ourselves and others through the physicality of our vision, smell, touch, and movement. These relationships, or dances, shape what we believe is possible and how we behave in the present. In this program, our focus will be on the ways in which we create relationships through our bodies. By attending to our present dance with others, we can become more aware of our existing context and optional ways of interacting.
