"This experiential class revives a legacy, teaching the work of legendary Fritz Perls. Timeless understandings and awareness practices developed by the Gestalt Therapy founders, Fritz and Laura Perls in the 1940s, are more relevant now than ever. We will explore a number of these teachings, along with similar

ones taught by the Navajo, Buddhists and Eckhart Tolle. They are particularly important now in helping us navigate these unpredictable times."

inner knowing

how to lose your mind and

come to your senses

the paradoxical theory of


acknowledging our truth

being open to the unexpected

experiencing the now: chewing

and savoring


introjecting versus choosing

how “thinking’” causes problems

don’t rush, experience fully

pay attention to the obvious

the importance of being concrete

the creative void

allowing versus planning

the magic of role playing



CYNDY SHELDON, MSW, BCD, CL, who studied with Gestalt founders Fritz Perls MD, PhD, and Laura Perls PhD, as well as James Simkin PhD, was one of the organizers of the original Gestalt Institute of San Francisco, where she taught for 25 years. In addition she taught for many years in Europe, as well as in Australia, Mexico and Canada. Inspired to follow her bliss in search of a more spiritual orientation, she worked among the Navajos for 15 years which has deepened her appreciation of Gestalt’s timeless understandings, some of which are key among indigenous groups as well. Now in her 76th year, she is integrating these approaches and is eager to share them with all who are curious and interested.

Currently she lives in Bellingham, Washington
