This programme begins has three main phases, which build on and interrelate;
- A solid grounding in the steps of Focusing; using the felt sense to listening to oneself and the parts of self. apply these skills of listening to self to resonant guiding of a partner in dyads
- Focusing as a relational rather than individual practice, introducing polyvagal theory and ecotherapy / existential ‘life’ energy, self as nervous system and self as universe.
- Relating with both living systems through the process model (which point to right brain, connected to self, relating to the earth, other than humans and ancestors) and how to bring a Focusing awareness to where the unit model has been over extended to life-oriented processes (left brain, disconnected, traumatised, producing dominating, colonialist, patriarchal and supremacist institutions and systems), searching for a new way of being.
More details to follow.
Expressions of interest and questions are very welcome at this stage.
A meeting of interested participants is likely to happen before the end of December with the course starting in January.
