Humans of Gestalt
An experiment in Dialogue
Facilitated by Heather Anne Keyes and Kamila Bialy.
Who are we? What are we doing? How has doing what we do shaped who we are?
Born of an interest in preserving the lived experience of being with our colleagues, mentors and friends in Gestalt, as well as a deep curiosity about those we have not yet met, we would like to invite the international Gestalt community to get to know each other better through this experimental series of informal documentary and personal interviews.
We want to speak with individuals from any level of experience, location and background about what Gestalt is for you and who you are in Gestalt. We are happy to have the conversation with you individually, or to facilitate meetings between pairs, trios or quartets. We can follow along in English, Polish, Spanish, French and Italian and welcome collaborators in other languages as the project grows.
How does this work? What does it imply for you? Not much- you don´t need to prepare anything, just email us to set up a meeting time, and we will email you a link to speak via ZOOM for probably just under 30 min per session. We will ask you some questions and see what emerges from there. The conversations will be recorded, and the material made available on our website for interest members of the public and for Gestalt researchers. They will eventually be transcribed and translated.
That´s it-very simple. And at the same time, we are excited about the possibilities a “simple” encounter offers for presence, experience, spontaneity and dialogical embodied relation to work their Gestalt magic.
