Retreat & Training
Retreat-We endeavor to create a space in which participants may recharge and rejuvenate in a beautiful location with good food, in a community of others who are also seeking renewal and connection.

Training-For those who wish to deepen their understanding and practice of gestalt therapy, this experience will be especially rich. The faculty all have many years of experience as gestalt therapists and trainers. In addition to maintaining private practices, they have written about gestalt therapy theory and practice, have presented and trained nationally and internationally, and have taught for many years at institutions including Pacific University School of Professional Psychology, Stanford University, the UC Davis School of Medicine and The Wright Institute.

This retreat/training is open to mental health professionals and others who have done extensive psychological growth work from all theoretical orientations interested in learning more about gestalt therapy are welcome.

About the Faculty
Eva Gold and Steve Zahm are Co-Directors of Gestalt Therapy Training Center–Northwest in Portland OR, and Senior Faculty for the Buddhist Psychology and Contemporary Gestalt Therapy: Mindfulness to Psychotherapy Practice program. In addition to practicing and teaching gestalt therapy for decades, they have also studied Buddhist psychology and practiced Vipassana/Insight meditation for many years. Their forthcoming book is Buddhist Psychology & Gestalt Therapy Integrated: Psychotherapy  for the 21st Century. They will bring this perspective to the training.

Peter Cole and Daisy Reese are Co-Directors of the Sierra Institute for Contemporary Gestalt Therapy in Berkeley, CA.
