The great wall of China and the washing machine

Why is it so hard for me to accept that sometime, for all and for all of us comes a moment that things end? Why until this moment comes for me too, I do not permit myself to enjoy too, from time to time and without much thinking a new shinning washing machine purring like...

The Art of Listening-2: form, flow, improvisation [intro on a webinar-text]

The art of listening-1 [intro on a webinar-text]

We finally consume stimuli, no matter what stimuli. And as a consequence of lining in a “noise” of stimuli we desensitise: I mean that we become unable to give any meaning to our senses, since we are simply consuming what they are bringing in our being every moment.

How and why the body is the foundation of our existence

in whatever we do, we are always “in advance” our body. In fact, we “are“ already our body before doing anything with it, even before we observe or think about it.

The other, the Other and the Look

When we interact, it is like each one of us is giving life through our responses to a world that is totally “other” and can never be fully accessed.

The "Motif Exercise" is a way to enrich awareness not only in psychotherapy, but also in other fields involving in any way process and awareness work. Especially in Gestalt therapy, this exercise can be seen as an “experiment”, able not only to enhance awareness, but also to produce significant material for further and deep therapeutic...

The “SHARING” and “MATRIX” variations of the “MOTIF exercise” in the PSP approach seen through Gestalt therapy principles

The "Motif Exercise" is not fitness, dance, or role-playing. It becomes meaningful only as a way to enrich awareness and get tuned with our experiential stream.
