About the author:
CYNDY SHELDON, MSW, BCD, who studied with Gestalt founder Fritz Perls MD, PhD, was one of the organizers of the original Gestalt Institute of San Francisco, in 1967 where she taught for 25 years. In addition she taught for many years in Europe. Inspired to follow her bliss in search of a more spiritual orientation, she worked among the Navajos for 15 years which has deepened her appreciation of Gestalt's timeless understandings. Now in her 77th year, she is integrating these approaches and is eager to share them with all who are curious and interested. Currently she teaches in Bellingham, Washington (where she lives) as well as in Seattle and San Francisco.
Gestalt As A Way of Life: Awareness Practices
as taught by Gestalt Therapy founders and their followers
Out of the body of existential teachings of Gestalt Therapy, emerged a number of practices we were invited to do as students of the Gestalt founders back in the 1960s. What are you aware of right now; give your headache a voice and have it talk to you; slow down and breathe; be more present when we connect; stop qualifying; be more specific; lose your mind & come to your senses; say that louder; tell me your truth in this moment.
This book delineates a number of these principles and practices, offering some experiments for you to do. If you are able to do most of these without getting stuck you are in danger of becoming more aware, more alive, more contactful, more creative, and maybe more enlightened as well!
