Event description:

Gestalt workshop: working with the body: I MOVE FOR LIFE – LIFE IN TOUCH. Embodied presence in Gestalt. A few words from Asia Sawicz:

In our bodies, even when we are lying inert, the breath is constantly moving within us, the pulsating blood reaches, by means of the contracting heart, to the remotest places, lymph travels in the tissues, and the gentle movements of the digestive system signal the digestion process.

Only by living do we experience movement.

What nourishes us, soothes us, regulates us is the experience of contact. Since the beginning of our existence, we have existed in a relationship. We learn that we exist in contact with the Other. It is another person who touches us, sees us, hears us, reacts. We see ourselves, we feel ourselves in border contact. I perceive myself, through you, you perceive yourself through me. There is an exchange between us, a fluctuation, alive and feeding both of us. We need the Other to grow. Through the embodied presence we grow, we live.

I invite you to a workshop where we will build and deepen contact with each other and among ourselves.

I myself have recently been experiencing myself as a human tool that I have built from many experiences, those humanly ordinary as well as professional. In recent years, the practice of Gestalt therapy has expanded to include mindfulness practice and BodyMind Gestalt therapy created by Arye Bursztyn.


Gestalt Workshop: Working with the Body: MOVING FOR LIFE – Leader:

The greatest value for me is human life and its quality. I am honored when the Other Man lets me into his world and I can accompany him in looking at different aspects of it and what appears in the co-creative field. It is a fascinating process in which I am curious to see how contact with the Other affects me as well.In the process I am attentive to how we can be together, Here and Now, while respecting each other’s distinctiveness and diversity.

I enjoy reading books, connecting with nature in its smells, sounds and colors. I like to stay in silence and meditate. Privately, I have a daughter – a teenager – and a dog.
