Dan Bloom, Fellow, New York Institute of Gestalt Therapy
«As psychotherapist and sociologist Dreitzel continues the founders of Gestalt therapys attempt to create a field approach that includes their criticism of the political and socio-ecological context of their time and the possibilities to live a meaningful and responsible life in our present situation by linking insights from stoic philosophies, Karl Marx, Ken Wilber, and Buddha, and also by sharing his concrete experiences practicing what he calls Embodied Mindful Awareness. The book is also in itself a strong statement against a possible slide of Gestalt Therapy into an effective but purely medical-psychotherapeutic method.» Bernd Bocian, Gestalt therapist, author of Fritz Perls in Berlin 1893-1933.
«Dreitzels book presents profound reflections which will appeal not just to therapists and academics but to all readers interested in their own ongoing developmental process. Definitely it is recommended reading for therapists and educators, but also it is heartily recommended for anyone keen to keep on with personal development while being equally interested in the constructive development of our culture in difficult, prospectively even stormy times. This book is for those who are willing to take responsibility.»
Dr. Roland Stein, Professor of Education.
«This book can be a companion for a long time in ones life.»
