“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.”

Marianne Williamson (‘A Return To Love’)

If you’re interested in experiencing Gestalt we have the ongoing Process Group that may be useful. Alternatively the Certificate course might meet your needs (next intake March 2013). If you’d like further information give me a call on 0439 752 710. If you would like to go on our Database you’ll receive up-to-date information on TGI workshops, seminars and free Public forums.
