This article is the shortened version of an article published into the International Journal Studies in Gestalt Therapy. Dialogical Bridges. The three editors of that journal (Dan Bloom, Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb and Frank Stëmmler) pose questions about bodily experience according to gestalt therapy to the authors, three main experts in the field. They answer from the background of basic gestalt principles, like the co-creation of contact in a field perspecitve, embodied experience of the relationship, sufferings as creative adjustments, etc. Gestalt therapy practise has developed along two main lines, one focused on body work, the other focused on verbal interventions. Today, theoreticians, clinicians, trainers, and students are engaged in the challenge of re-owning the integrative and wholistic sense that a phenomenological approach based on the primacy of experience requires.
Keywords: Body, olism, co-creation, embodied relationship, creative adjustment, experience, Gestalt therapy.
