Describe the events:

Therapeutic work with the theme of aggression – Peter Philippson’s workshop organised in cooperation with the Lodz Gestalt School

Nowadays, with wars all over the region, we are witnessing huge levels of aggression among people. The images from Ukraine, Palestine, Israel look very similar. What is going on? Why is one human being suddenly so aggressive towards another? Human beings are the most fearsome species that has ever existed in this world. But at the same time, it is this species that has managed to create much beauty, often brilliant works of art, and show such a profound expression of creativity. So, on the one hand we are so skilful at destroying, but on the other hand we are also skilful at healing each other.

According to F. Perls, when the world seems too overwhelmingly dangerous or absent to engage with it aggressively, we move into passive adaptation to the world perceived as a given, and our active aggression does not disappear, but is directed against ourselves.

The active and passive parts are worth exploring in order to move forward with our awareness of the phenomenon occurring in our field here and now.

In this workshop we intend to explore aggression, both active and passive, creative and destructive. We intend to mix formats: from theory to experiments and many explorations. Our co-created space will certainly be full of aggression, but truly enriching! We invite you to our boat to Lodz!

The workshop gestalt: therapeutic work with the theme of aggression is aimed at gestalt practitioners. It is included in the required hours of the so-called free choice, necessary in the process of certification in the Gestalt current. It will be conducted in English and translated into Russian.
