Excellent theory resource. I especially liked the section on experience, processing experience, and assigning meaning, which he ties in with experiencing art. We lose something when assigning meaning too quickly, attempting to put the experience in a tidy labelled box. Lots of helpful examples of experiment use, ie. empty chair.
Erv and Miriam do a great job expanding gestalt therapy concepts in a clear and insightful way. Also, they do it in a way that it can be practiced and implemented in therapy.

“When a person has swum, traveled, run a lathe, planted flowers, ridden a motorcycle, made wine, painted a picture, parachuted, he has increased the fund from which he may draw for new figural developments. In other words, as the background of his experience becomes more diversified, it also becomes potentially more harmonious with a whole range of happenings.” 5 likes
“The paradox is that, while a concern with past and future is obviously central to psychological functioning, to behave as though one were indeed in the past or future, as many do, pollutes the lively possibilities of existence.” 5 likes
