Open Seat Intensive, Northern California

August 23-25, 2019

Open Seat is an individual Gestalt session that takes place in a group setting. When working, you'll be supported in using the tools of Relational Gestalt Practice to contact your moment-to-moment experience. You may explore sensation and emotion, face life situations past and present, or practice your skills of self-expression and communication. This exploration may also include dreamwork and Gestalt experiments that involve the group's participation.

Whatever the content, open seat is an interactive form that is one of the essential practices of this work. It offers a chance to develop awareness and self-responsibility, and to generate more choices for how we interact within the relationships that make up our lives. Over the course of the weekend, each person in the workshop will have an opportunity to use the open seat with Dorothy’s support and that of the circle. To ensure that there is time for this, enrollment for this workshop will be limited. Periods of basic practice, continuum of awareness, and group sharing will also be included.

*This workshop is open to those who have attended a previous workshop with Dorothy or who have practiced GAP with Christine Price.
