Body Structure from a Gestalt Perspective: Training for Gestalt and Somatic Practitioners

May 26 - 31, 2019 Begins in 5 months
with Michael Clemmens & Renee Jennings

Patterns of our physical embodiment are revealed and expressed in our thinking, feeling, and lived histories. They are shaped through our interactions with the world, the places and spaces we inhabit, developmental contexts, and relational others. As body or character structure, these patterns become relatively fixed modes of being through which we both express and limit our evolving self and narrative. From a Gestalt perspective, these structures are creative adjustments that can be attended to and explored in the novelty of the present moment.
