Gestalt terapija

Naomi Shihab Nye, 1952
Before you know what kindness really is
you must lose things,
feel the future dissolve in a moment
like salt in a weakened broth.
What you held in your hand,
what you counted and carefully saved,
all this must go so you know
how desolate the landscape can be
between the regions of kindness.
How you ride and ride
thinking the bus will never stop,
the passengers eating maize and chicken
will stare out the window forever.

Before you learn the tender gravity of kindness
you must travel where the Indian in a white poncho
lies dead by the side of the road.
You must see how this could be you,
how he too was someone
who journeyed through the night with plans
and the simple breath that kept him alive.

Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside,
you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.
You must wake up with sorrow.
You must speak to it till your voice
catches the thread of all sorrows
and you see the size of the cloth.
Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore,
only kindness that ties your shoes
and sends you out into the day to gaze at bread,
only kindness that raises its head
from the crowd of the world to say
It is I you have been looking for,
and then goes with you everywhere
like a shadow or a friend.

An Encounter between Philosophy and Modern Psychotherapy


The article attempts to uncover a forgotten perspective on healing the human soul – one that does not fall under the history of medicine but rather the history of philosophy, thus emphasising the connection between philosophy and modern psychotherapy. This necessitates an examination of the relationship between modern psychotherapy and modern psychology/ psychiatry. It follows that psychotherapy is not significantly defined by knowledge particular to either psychology or psychiatry, even though psychotherapy does encompass procedures grounded in the scientific and theoretical bases of psychology. In conclusion, it is proven that it is not knowledge in the modern sense that acts as a determinant for psychotherapy, but rather a kind of compassion that is characteristic of the philosopher.
