Meeting Tuesday nights for 8 weeks between August and October.

This is a committed 8-week series that is designed to provide a safe setting for group members to develop awareness and self-responsibility in relation to fellow participants, and allow you to practice creating ongoing, enlivening, and supportive relationships. This weekly series can serve as an introduction to relational gestalt practice for those new to the work and as a chance to practice regularly together for those already experienced.

Our sense of who we are develops in our connection with others. At times, our connections with other people may leave us with the belief that we are somehow flawed, not enough or too much. These beliefs can be changed in a group that meets our needs for attunement and understanding and which is committed to practicing kindness, acceptance and honesty.

In an atmosphere of mutual support, we will seek to learn skills to improve contact with each other, develop and track awareness of our emotions and corresponding sensations, learn and practice communicating needs effectively, and discover issues that are diminishing the quality of our lives. Group meetings will include time for basic practice, continuum of awareness, and brief weekly check-ins, as well as a mixture of teaching, open seat, and experiential exercises.

I ask that you commit to this group with the intention of attending all sessions, though I am open to hearing from you if have conflicts that would cause you to miss one session.
