Encounter Fundamentals

Moment by Moment

Taught by: Christine Havens

October 28-29, 2017

Sat 11:30am-6:45pm | Sun 9:00am-3:15pm


Open Floor Encounter is an exhilarating group process containing elements of Gestalt Awareness Practice (GAP), psychodrama, movement and somatic psychotherapy.  The essential practice is to make what we feel and think inside, physically visible. Our actions impact others; other's actions effect us. We come to understand the interdependence of being human -  there is no such thing as an person having an individual experience.

Within a supportive and challenging environment we create a ‘safe emergency’ – a situation intense enough to get our attention and supportive enough that we risk moving beyond our habitual patterns.

Open Floor Encounter straddles the middle ground between the edgy, pioneer spirit of group ‘Encounter’ of the 60’s, with the sophistication and finesse of more recent psychotherapeutic insights. Artfully graceful, unpredictable and infinitely creative this process calls forth both our maturity and innate wisdom.
