Gestalt summer 5 day residential: 'Lose your mind and come to your senses'
This summer 5 day residential group provides the opportunity for deep immersion in the magic of Gestalt as a transformative process. Aided by a beautiful and peaceful location on the edge of Dartmoor, the 5 day (starting on the Friday evening) is suitable for anyone with some experience of personal development including newcomers to Gestalt and old hands. CPD Certificates (40 hours) will be available.
Our approach is founded in Gestalt Therapy and other Humanistic perspectives with an emphasis on direct experiencing and relating in the here and now. This focus on the lived experience of the moment includes the felt experience of the body, the senses and the emotions as well as dreams, imaginings, and projections.
Within the safety that group therapy offers, participants will have opportunities to:
- Experiment with giving their minds a rest
- Experience the inner wisdom of their bodies and barriers to embodiment
- Enhance awareness of their senses
- Explore relating to others and with nature from embodied presence
- Express their creativity, spontaneity and passion.
