I had that recently. Freaked me out a bit. It kept appearing on everything.

impressive work Matt, I'm reading it at the moment (still in the early part) - I like the Lebensreform link to the counter culture. Big residue of that movement still in Berlin (when I was there) - playing out in new forms

Watched both these vids now (well, listened while doing housework) and it's fascinating stuff.

That Fritz Perlz eh? I havent read him but my partner has studied gestalt. I told her about the patients committing suicide thing you mention in the video and she said she wasnt surprised and that Fritz actually stole all his ideas from his wife :unsure:

Anyway, I've just ordered your book, looking forward to it.
