This article brings to our attention the theme of spirituality within Gestalt therapy’s theoretical and clinical perspectives. This theme emerges through overcoming traditional western culture’s philosophical and religious misunderstandings, such as the dichotomy between spirituality and practical/material daily life as well as the widespread secular perspective of classic psychology. Spirituality deals with topics such as those that focus on a single individual’s experience in trying to fathom the true meaning of the things and moving beyond their mere concrete dimension. Through Gestalt therapy’s epistemology (phenomenology, aesthetics, relationship) we can get to the core of the therapeutic clinical practice that is based on the embodied dimension through the aesthetic experience of the individual (Spagnuolo Lobb, 2017), the deep contact with the other, and the role of compassion and responsibility as recognition criteria which are rooted in the patient’s body (see Orange, 2013).
Keywords: Spirituality, bodily, embodied aesthetics, phenomenology, relationship.
