GESTALT IN THE HOT SEAT
untangling identity, heritage and vocation
2019 – 2020
What is NGV?
NGV is an international not-for-profit organisation, committed to widening participation and exploring new ways of building community via application of gestalt across a number of domains – therapy, organisational, community, and government/political.
We offer a test bed for innovation with a view to supporting application of gestalt to social, environmental and political challenges facing humanity.
There has been increasing interest in the relational aspect of people’s lives – both in business and in personal and political domains. Gestalt is a phenomenological and therapeutically rooted approach to our being able to link our somatic experience with the cognitive and to raise our awareness of both our own and others’ experience. There has been no more relevant time for gestalt than this era of COVID-19. NGV offers a uniquely dedicated platform to test out application of gestalt to a new set of problems facing current and future generations.
Anyone can get involved in NGV. We see ourselves as a progressive force within the gestalt community – believing in the power of story and voice to inspire the next generation of gestaltists and ensure that gestalt has a future. You can get involved by attending one of our events, writing for publication, or by developing a project. Anything goes – well almost anything – just contact us with an outline of your ideas!
