Three texts, and three perspectives on Paul Rebillot's approach.

My journey with Paul Rebillot

Tony Khabaz has associated with Paul Rebillot during the last sixteen years of this life.

Account of an enduring relationship, indicative of Rebillot's style and way of accompanying journeyers, and one example among many of how his approach could resonate with somebody's life.

A talk by Paul Rebillot

A few weeks before he died, Paul Rebillot tells Melissa Kay and a friend  what he feels has been the essence of his work, his life,… himself.

Confession from a “prouchatcher” who enjoyed putting “ a couple of nothings” together and waiting for “a gestalt [to] form”.



Gestalt according to Dick Price

Paul Rebillot learned gestalt at Esalen with Dick Price, who has learned with Fritz Perls. Price's “gestalt practice” was based on simplicity and humility, just as it required to be fully aware of oneself.

Excerpts of a talk given by Price in April 1985.



The hero's journey is not…

"Live your own myth"… "Rewrite your bio as that of a hero"… "Create your heroic future"… Even though they may be presented under the label of "the hero's journey" such promises have nothing to do with how Joseph Campbell conceived of it and what Paul Rebillot made out of it. Such expectations are based on two major misconceptions. Two clarifications are required.
