I read the writings of Fritz Perls, studied the videos of him working, spent time with Barry Stevens and John Stevens and found them to be about as real and honest as any of us can be. This was all over 20 yrs ago. Towards the end of his life Fritz was working almost exclusively with dreams. He seemed to be always evolving, changing and there is no telling where he would be today in his thinking. He may have even discarded notions of therapy and been involved in something called community. Barry spoke eloquently of how authentic life felt living amongst groups like the Navajos, Hopis and some Hawaiians. God, I miss them, but I'm with them in my heart and I thank them for their message that it was ok to risk being who I am.
