Meeting Format

Each of us lives in community. Our family is our first one. In Focusing, we learn to create a space of radical acceptance for our inner community. Using examples from Smartview Stories, we will create a safe, playful environment to explore how we show up for the communities outside of us.

Smartview Stories is a series of family books that explore living a Focusing way of life in community. The stories illustrate both what is going on outside of us as well as inside of us via three Inner Companions based on neuroscience concepts. We’ll become familiar here with how these Inner Companions function within our own lives.

Our time together will be heavily experiential. We’ll utilize universal themes and prompts from adventures in Smartview Stories. There will be whole group invitations and discussions. Sometimes we’ll invite writing, art and movement. We’ll have pair and small group breakout spaces. You will be invited into role-play scenarios and groups can volunteer to share their skit. Expect to laugh here, humor seems to be an essential quality of being when we invite our fears around holding our own sense of self in the world.

Lastly, each workshop will welcome a member of the Learning Community for Mastery in Guiding Change, as a co-teacher. Sandy has been involved in a variety of community start-ups for more than 30 yrs. All of this experience is now interwoven with the life experience each Learning Community member brings with them. Together, we create a magical carpet ride.

We welcome any threads you’d like to add during your time with us here!
