This weekend I was pondering what it means to be trained as a therapist and specifically, a gestalt therapist... For me, learning and training in the Gestalt method added so much value and meaning to my life not only professionally, but personally as well. I honestly grew through that degree and I’ve continued to do so through my career. The gestalt philosophy has taught me present mindedness, it’s taught me the value of now. It is, after all, all that we have. It’s taught me to let go, to not expect to control things because that, in itself is a pointless exercise. It’s taught me that I am responsible for myself and my actions, but I cannot be responsible for that of others. It’s taught me authenticity and connection. It taught me to live life fully and joyfully. The quote below attached is written by Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy. I think it beautifully captures the meaning of the gestalt way and I think it’s something that is a valuable piece of advice for any relationship in life, parent and child, friendships, romantic relationship, work colleagues and even family relationships. I hope it adds some value and perspective to your day and that this short passage perhaps, even in a small way, made you see things a little differently. Have a wonderful Monday and week ahead. #presentmindedness #stressrelief #gestalttherapy #hereandnow #playtherapy #playtherapyworks #play2heal #stressrelief #anxietyreliefforchildren #playtherapyjohannesburg

Touch is such an underrated magic. A hippie told me one time that mammals need 15 minutes of physical contact each day, for health. I used to think "what an obscene number of hugs," but only for not considering passive touching. There's a heartwarming meditation to mindlessly petting, or holding, or grooming. You notice your heart rate slow down and find it easier to let your mind wander. Think about your hopes, or your goals, or nothing. It's relaxing. I watch my kids catching that presentness of mind when they're handling our pets. They're so undistracted. What a fun form self care takes in touch. I'm going to pay attention to what I do with my hands today, the energy I'm stirring up. And I'm going to do some primo snuggling, for health 💪 . . . . . #touch #smallmagic #meditation #mindfulness #beherenow #present #presentmindedness #naturalmagic #smallthings #hippiewisdom #catsofinstagram #meditateeverydamnday #shamanism #witchcraft #womancraft #spiritualism #lovingeachother #selfcare #wellness #wholesome #backtobasics #healthyliving #wholistic #simplejoys #mindfulliving #observations #momlife #witchlife #appalachianblackhatsociety

AN AFTERNOON OF FOREST THERAPY Spent the afternoon in a stunning Forest just outside Gorey with a group of open-minded curious nature loving explorers, at the invitation of Forest Therapy Guide Shane Furlong. 🍂We were guided through the Forest landscape and offered invitations to immerse ourselves in the pulsing, breathing, dancing energy of what we encountered. 🍁Raindrops, Cobwebs, moss and birch leaves revealed their unique beauty to the attentive eye and called all the senses into an explorative dance. Time was spent around the fire sharing our unique experiences and celebrating our connection to the vibrating earth. 🍃Thank you so much Shane for your skilful facilitation and for guiding us through an enchanted afternoon. 🍂Shane is the owner of Wild Places 🍁#art #growth #creativity #painting #contemporarypainting #ireland #irish #wexford #irishartist #colours #paint #healing #mindfulness #mbsr #newgrowth #Stress #Stressmanagement #Gorey #Health #healing #attention #awareness #focus #Compassion #moments #nonjudgement #Meditation #PresentMindedness

SILKEN SILENT SEEDS Soft and silk like to the touch, feather light and warm in the hands palm, catching sunlight along fine twisted filaments, dancing with the playful breeze, holding silence in a buzy world ... ❤🌱❤ Explored by the senses, witnessed with presence, appreciated with sheer gratitude ❤ #art #growth #creativity #painting #contemporarypainting #ireland #irish #wexford #irishartist #colours #paint #healing #mindfulness #mbsr #newgrowth #Stress #Stressmanagement #Gorey #Health #healing #attention #awareness #focus #Compassion #moments #nonjudgement #Meditation #PresentMindedness #PlayfulPresence #Present #seeds

MINDFUL STEPS I took this photo of the steps back from the beach yesterday. I was struck by their beauty in the sunlight. The Irish winter sun was low in the sky, casting beautiful shadows across each step. I have walked this path hundreds of times. I was struck by their beauty and at the same time how I had been blind to them on so many occasions. When the mind is churning, our sight looks inward into the landscape of problems, rememberings and anticipations. We become blind to the beauty around us. Walking mindfully home, I became aware of these steps. Not as the functional steps I usually take for granted. But as the stunning canvas of light and shade, texture and patern, dappled by the winter sun. Walking mindfully, reminded me of all the beauty I am missing each day as my mind is elsewhere. I am greatful to have been present enough to have witnessed them. ❤🙏❤ #art #growth #creativity #painting #contemporarypainting #ireland #irish #wexford #irishartist #colours #paint #healing #mindfulness #mbsr #newgrowth #Stress #Stressmanagement #Gorey #Health #healing #attention #awareness #focus #Compassion #moments #nonjudgement #Meditation #PresentMindedness #PlayfulPresence #Present

THE FUTURE & THE PAST ARE CONSTRUCTED BY OUR IMAGINATION ... (Strange But True)❤ We are never in any time or moment but NOW ... it is always NOW ... our imagining of the past and future will always be coloured by how we are feeling and thinking NOW in this moment ... each time we think of the past and future, our imagining of them is coloured by how we are in the NOW ... the more present we are, the more clearly we see this ... it is impossible to FEEL yesterday or tomorrow, we can only Feel NOW. Take care of this moment ... become present in every cell ... and watch how radically life changes ... ❤ Sounds Strange??? ... Try this ... at any moment ask yourself what time is it ? ... the answer will ALWAYS be NOW... It is impossible for it to be Yesterday or Tomorrow ... Strange but true ... ❤ Mindfulness allows us to step out of the imagination and become PRESENT in our lives ... moment by moment by moment ❤ #art #growth #creativity #painting #contemporarypainting #ireland #irish #wexford #irishartist #colours #paint #healing #mindfulness #mbsr #newgrowth #Stress #Stressmanagement #Gorey #Health #healing #attention #awareness #focus #Compassion #moments #nonjudgement #Meditation #PresentMindedness #PlayfulPresence
