‘’Clothing and makeup and hair and all of that so much indicates the kind of person you are inside and the person you are presenting on the outside. Sometimes they are in conflict, and sometimes they are the same. That psychology of the exterior informing the interior is just so interesting.’’
Dear friends! Dear Colleagues!
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, which we all look forward to.
2020 turned out to be difficult and even extraordinary. Despite this, the Riga Gestalt Institute continues to live and to work. In this traditional New Year’s letter, I would like to talk only about the good things, but I do not want to be two-faced, so I will talk also about the joyful and the sad things, but still, first of all, about the good things.
This year the Riga Gestalt Institute is 21 years old. During this year, many different events were held.
During this year, we also had to go through many unpleasant emotions, conflicts, betrayals and difficulties. Some people had to leave our institute and this leaves made a very heavy imprint on our hearts.
I and my colleagues and friends are optimistic about the future and hope that next year will open the doors to a new era. We plan to continue our work and implement all our traditional projects. Without fail, there will be: a conference, an intensive, a summer school, a new student enrollment and, of course, another graduation of new gestalt therapists.
We will look for new ways of learning and new ways of development. In 2021, we plan the following specializations: work with couples, work with groups, work with eating disorders, work with psychosomatics, work in OH cards.
And also there are several promising ideas that will remain secret for now, but which could be a wonderful gift for the new year.
Dear friends, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I wish you good health, wisdom, reliable friends, love and awareness. All difficulties can be overcome when there are close people with you and you believe in what you are doing!
Happy New Year!
