A Gestalt Update

I have picked up The Alphabet Versus the Goddess by Leonard Shlain again after finding it in an old box of my books. The book explores how the transition from images to words has caused masculine energy to be favored over feminine energy.

Here is a quick thought to consider for this blog: seeing the whole rather than the parts (i.e. gestalt) is a feminine principle…when I break my gestalt into Body, Heart, Mind, and Self…I am not using a feminine perspective. Knowing this, I may now take a more holistic view and explore how to write more femininely?
