I made a web poster for a friend:
The words are a poem by Fritz Perls and they are usually titled the “Gestalt Prayer“. Its not really a prayer, other than being a statement of affirmation. The poem could have been titled the “Gestalt Mantra” or “Gestalt Chant”.
What Perls wished to affirm, I believe, is the spirit of independence and relative self reliance, that… with the concepts of personal growth, sustainability and responsibility, are at the core of his Gestalt Therapy Theory.
-An existential phenomenology .
The Gestalt Prayer can be found in the work “Gestalt Therapy Verbatim” by F. Perls. The photo is mine… for some reason I like to photograph bees. I hope you find it to be a cool affirmation poster.
Thanks to Fritz and Laura Perls and the rest of the “gestalts” for there inspiring words.
