Mindful Life focus Community!
Meetings are held on selected Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays monthly at the office of Dr. Paltin, in Orange and also meetings in San Diego Coastal Region.
The Mindful Life Focus Community endeavors to provide a consistent gathering of individuals focused on a communal experience of exploring life and living it well through lively conversation, through listening and relating about our lives through music, literature and the arts. It is an effort to amplify and sanctify the lived life.
What is a Life Focus Community?
Created by the pre-eminent Gestalt Psychotherapist, Dr. Erving Polster, the Life Focus Community is unique in it's design. Harmonizing elements of focused attention found in Gestalt psychotherapuetic method, together with the amplification, illustration and awareness of perspective brought to us in mindful exploration of the arts. It also draws upon the hallowing and sanctity of experience of a communal gathering generally found only in religious settings. In the same way as artists, writers, musicians, dancers and painters portray life, the Mindful Life Focus Community, illuminates and sanctifys the lived life. Through story telling and in listening to the stories others tell, through exploration of living via the arts, we enliven and enrich our attention and focus to the living of everyday life.
On occasion, Dr. Erving Polster will be a visiting member of our
What it is Not
Mindful Life Focus Community is not a religious organization.
It does not seek to promote religious, political or personal agendas. It does
not discriminate in it's population diversity. It is open to individuals of all
back grounds beliefs and orientations.
Students are welcome to attend the life focus community. This is not psychotherapy, and does not constitute a dual relationship for current graduate students of Dr. Paltin.
