The Sydney Gestalt Interest Group met recently for the first quarterly get-together for 2019. Zan Goodrich hosted the Get-together at her home. 17 people interested in gestalt ideas attended for some informal socialising, as well as some updates on what’s been happening in our local and international community. Julie Rea and Chris Wilkinson shared their experience of Ruella Frank’s training in Spain last October, Zan and Julie explained the initiative of the Gestalt Interest Group to those who haven’t attended before and Mike Reed spoke about the upcoming “Hui “ taking place at Manly Q Station on May 3-5- a wonderfully ambitious and innovative gathering, grounded in the gestalt approach. Mike facilitated a small “warm up” process for the Hui- inviting the gathered group to share experiences of “being othered or othering”. The process provided some experiential “ground” to the figure of the Hui “Diversity, inequality, dialogue and…?”. A reminder that the Gestalt Interest Group welcomes anyone interested in Gestalt. Please come along and experience our fledgling initiative! The next get-together will probably be in June or July- details will be published on the GANZ community events page.
