Event Website:

We gather together to support each other in living Focusing within our daily lives. Together, while creating a space for listening, we practice attending to our bodily-felt sense, sharing what we learn, while being in community with each other.

Participation is open to individuals who have some experience as a Focuser and as a Listening Companion, with each person fully supported to Focus in their own way. Attendees are invited to offer and/or suggest a Focusing-related presentation, workshop or discussion topic during the Gathering.

This year’s Gathering is being held at Lindenwood Retreat & Conference Center, 9601 Union Rd. in Plymouth, IN 46513.

Located 35 miles south of South Bend, IN, Lindenwood provides an atmosphere of peaceful, quiet and sacred space in a natural setting. It’s a 1.5 hour drive from downtown Chicago, 2.5 hours north of Indianapolis and 3.5 hours from Ann Arbor.
