Abstract

Gestalt therapy is a powerful tool for accessing transpersonal domains. Three Gestalt experiments are described that took place in a year-long class at Naropa University. For each of these sessions, Deborah was the teacher/facilitator and Trish was the student/client. These Gestalt experiments are presented as demonstrations of: (1) Gestalt theory in action, (2) the applicability of Gestalt therapy with special populations, and (3) ways in which Gestalt practice can lead to spiritual unfolding. We demonstrate how Gestalt is used as a transformative approach in working through issues of physical difference, including hearing impairment, that are central to the person and sensory in nature.
