Gestalt Therapy Colorado Residential Workshop
June 29 - July 7, 2019
Recapture Freedom Spontaneity and Wonder: Open up to Joy
Join Cathy Gray and Janneke van Beusekom in the high mountains of Colorado.
We think of joy as freedom: freedom of movement, thought, expression, feeling. Come join us as we explore the ways in which we keep ourselves captive and not free. We will come together and experiment with widening our options, expanding our movements, and liberating our thinking and feeling as we open up to joy.
We will meet in the morning, in the late afternoon and again briefly in the evening (for a total of 5 hours). You will have the afternoons to explore the area, take a hike, walk along the river, go on a bike ride, or simply take a nap.
Our evening meals will be prepared by teams of participants. At mid week you will have a full day to explore this beautiful area of natural wonder.
