Work Study - Gestalt Group Process

Apr 08 - May 06, 2018 Begins in 5 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 participants regularly attend each session.
No prior with Gestalt or group process is necessary.
