Bi-Monthly Saturday Gestalt Group – 10.00 to 4.30
Cost is £65 with light lunch provided. Min of five, max ten people.
I’m afraid that this group is not presently running, if you are interested please let me know, I would be delighted to start it up again.
If you are interested in personal development and up for the challenge, and support, of being a part of a gestalt group then I trust you’ll find this a useful and growthful space. Anyone with some experience of therapy is welcome, if you have lots of experience you are especially welcome, but you don’t have to be a therapist to attend. This ‘open’ format means that each month is a new group, a new encounter with the unknown that I hope you find nourishing and insightful.
Gestalt is concerned with exploring the here and now, what is right in front of us, which is the basis for this group. This work needs a balance of support and challenge, the support of acceptance and relationship, the challenge to always look deeper and wider. Both help us open to new awareness and it is this that when integrated expands our self-knowledge, understanding and ‘being’ on our journey of reconciliation and development. Every support can also be a challenge and every challenge a support.
The here and now has enormous depth, it is complex and multi-dimensional; there is the personal, the relational and group process, as well as the cultural ground we are each embedded in. There are the emotional, intellectual, energetic and spiritual dimensions to each aspect of our lives, all of which can usefully be explored. The past and future cast their important shadows which need our awareness and there is always the question of where we are on our journey and what our growing edge is.
Exploring ‘what is’ with committed attention in a group can uniquely deepen the awareness of our needs, helping us see more of what is in the way of our ability to live ever closer to the here and now. It supports the work of seeing and reconciling some of the “unfinished business” that gets in the way of this ability to ‘be’. It can also help us be with others processes, experiment with relating differently, provide us with invaluable feedback, highlight our choices, as well as the privilege of sharing others journeys. It can also support our understanding of our place in the world and what it all means.
If getting here is a problem do let me know, I am happy to see if there is anyone coming who might be able to help.
