    August 6, 2014 Discussion: Rudolf Otto: The Idea of the Holy
    Fritz Perl:
    The core of the gestalt therapy process is enhanced awareness of sensation, perception, bodily feelings, emotion, and behavior, in the present moment.
    Ernest Lawrence Rossi: novelty / numinosum / neurogenesis effect,%20PhD/Ernest%20Rossi%20-%20D%206.pdf
    numinosum defined: the experience of fascination, mystery, and tremendousness that motivates our lives, originally described by Rudolf Otto as a positive emotion of wonderment accompanying our sense of adventure in exploring the world
    neurogenesis defined: vivid conscious experience can turn on genes that code for proteins that lead to neurogenesis—the generation of new neurons and their connections in the brain.
