Gestalt Mindfulness: A Meditation Movement Practice for Our Daily Life (Nov. 19, 2016)

  • Gestalt Institute of Cleveland 1588 Hazel Drive Cleveland, OH, 44106 United States (map)

During this 5 week series, you will learn to incorporate a Gestalt mindfulness practice in movement as a Gestalt self-as-instrument set of skills for embodied presence. Mindfulness and Neuroscience research shows how a mindfulness practice of embodied presence to the self and others helps us to deal with complex interpersonal relationships in our ever-changing and uncertain world. We will learn how to apply the integration of a mindfulness practice that supports both a therapeutic and a coaching presence as well as client transformation. We integrate Gestalt methodology with Chi Kung, Yoga, Energy Medicine, Sound (chant) and Breath in a mindfulness movement meditation practice.

This series is open to Gestalt practitioners, coaches, counselors, individuals and couples who want to co-create a mindfulness practice that supports being an embodied presence in one's life, work and relationships.
