Martina Palombi & Declan Brady hosted the last Sydney Gestalt Interest Group at their therapy practice ‘Affinity Psychotherapy’ in Bondi Junction on the 5th October 2018. It was an engaging evening of ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ contact (short bursts of contact in dyads changing at a fast pace and then longer, silent, mindful contact episodes with one ‘speaker’ and one ‘listener’) facilitated by Martina & Declan followed by group process.12 people attended in total. The group process allowed for the emergence of the following figures: people’s need for more contact, wanting to build a Gestalt community that is not aligned with a particular Gestalt school/ training institute, building more connection to allow for more Gestalt community to emerge.
The Gestalt Interest Group is open to anyone who is interested in Gestalt. The Group is not associated with GANZ or to any one Gestalt school/ institute. Everyone is welcome who has a genuine interest in Gestalt. The next group will be held in February, details will follow closer to the time.
