Book cover for Buddhist Psychology & Gestalt Therapy Integrated: Psychotherapy for the 21st Century
Gestalt therapy and mindfulness meditation are also both grounded in the removal of distraction from fundamental raw experience, the stuff from which wholeness is formed.

Sarah liked a quote
“Tis a Fearful Thing

‘Tis a fearful thing
to love what death can touch.

A fearful thing
to love, to hope, to dream, to be –

to be,
And oh, to lose.

A thing for fools, this,

And a holy thing,

a holy thing
to love.

For your life has lived in me,
your laugh once lifted me,
your word was gift to me.

To remember this brings painful joy.

‘Tis a human thing, love,
a holy thing, to love
what death has touched.”
Yehuda HaLevi

Always a pleasure

Robbins’ real life is even more romantic than his novels. He inspires me to dream and live with romance and whimsy. Who can ever ask for more than that?

Richard Wright
“there are times when life's ends are so raveled that reason and sense cry out that we stop and gather them together again before we can proceed”
richard wright

Annie Dillard
“We sleep to time's hurdy-gurdy; we wake, if ever we wake, to the silence of God. And then, when we wake to the deep shores of time uncreated, then when the dazzling dark breaks over the far slopes of time, then it's time to toss things, like our reason, and our will; then it's time to break our necks for home.
There are no events but thoughts and the heart's hard turning, the heart's slow learning where to love and whom. The rest is merely gossip, and tales for other times.”
Annie Dillard, Holy the Firm

Rollo May
“It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when they have lost their way.”
Rollo May

James Baldwin
“I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

Annie Dillard
“I think it would be well, and proper, and obedient, and pure, to grasp your one necessity and not let it go, to dangle from it limp wherever it takes you.”
Annie Dillard
