When my light meets your light: Connecting from the heart with Social Oriented Focusing

 Registration is closed for this event
Imagine being really present in the here-and-now…enjoying interpersonal moments with the freedom to be yourself, to feel good – to experience surprise and delight instead of repetitive, stressful patterns of interaction. Social Oriented Focusing (SOF) teaches us to untie the KNOTS and NOTS that interfere with relating to others, enabling us to overcome blocks, fears, and automatic behaviors. In this workshop, we shall take a two-part journey: 1st part:  From ‘I’ space to ‘we space’ - Experimenting in moving from the 'I  space' to the 'we space', we will sense what happens inside us when we move from being in front of each other (me & you) to being together (us/we). 2nd part:  Seeing and being seen from the heart - We will explore how meeting in an SOF way from the heart nurtures both partners in the interaction, creating a place for my light to meet your light, impacting the whole relationship. Live attendance is recommended. All registrants (whether or not you attend live) will receive an email to view the recording after the workshop. The recording will be available for one month after the workshop concludes. Breakout rooms are not recorded. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful, though all are welcome to attend.

Description
Imagine being really present in the here-and-now…enjoying interpersonal moments with the freedom to be yourself, to feel good – to experience surprise and delight instead of repetitive, stressful patterns of interaction.

Social Oriented Focusing (SOF) teaches us to untie the KNOTS and NOTS that interfere with relating to others, enabling us to overcome blocks, fears, and automatic behaviors.

In this workshop, we shall take a two-part journey:

  • 1st part:  From ‘I’ space to ‘we space’
    Experimenting in moving from the 'I  space' to the 'we space', we will sense what happens inside us when we move from being in front of each other (me & you) to being together (us/we).
     
  • 2nd part:  Seeing and being seen from the heart
    We will explore how meeting in an SOF way from the heart nurtures both partners in the interaction, creating a place for my light to meet your light, impacting the whole relationship.

The workshop will include presentations, guided experiences, and time for sharing and questions.

Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful, though all are welcome to attend.

Format
We use Zoom videoconferencing for our online classes. The session will be held in meeting format so that all participants can see the presenters and each other. You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred as participation in breakout rooms will be limited.

All registrants (whether or not you attend live) can view the recording for one month. Breakout rooms are not recorded.
