Online Joining Information

For the Video Web Conference class, we will be utilizing a program called Zoom. You will need to download it onto your computer or phone to join us via video. You can also attend audio only via your phone. You’ll be in a conference space with myself as teacher, one-two assistants, and a group of friendly fellow learners from all over the world. With video, we will be able to see each other. We will use breakout rooms for our paired exercise during class.

Meeting Format

PART 3 is called The Guide’s Journey. My Favorite Level when I did my initial training!

Here we learn the typical ‘shape’ of a Focusing session, so we know what stage the process is in and what reminder would be most helpful. We dip deeper into our understanding of body as process by exploring it as a dance of neurobiology and physiology. We will keep track of this using Body Cards to document our own journey with process stages. This provides a deepening; expanding our sense of Presence in an experiential way we notice in our daily life. We learn here to be aware of and bigger than, our inner process alongside something that has learned to help us with the stages of process. We’ll discover more ways to bring Focusing into our daily life as we learn invitations here which very much adapt to our everyday relationships.

There is a lot of new information in this level. We utilize Ann Weiser Cornell's and Barbara McGavin's Student Manual Part 2 here. By extending the class over a period of months, we’ll give ourselves space and time to integrate this information at a deep level. There are no assistants in this class. I hope that each of you will sometime volunteer to participate as either Focuser or Companion in a Demo.

In addition to the six classes, I have added an additional 30 min one-to-one with me individually to this level. This gives us an opportunity to really check in around your process.

If you are a healing professional or have opportunities to support others (kids, clients, friends, etc!!) as they process a life situation, the guiding tools of Part 3 and one’s growing ability to understand every relational encounter as somewhere ‘in process’, are invaluable skills. This is also a great level to consider repeating sometime. Class sizes are limited to 8, sometimes 10. 

Creating Space Part 3 Mondays – 2023

11:30 am - 1:30 pm Eastern New York Time, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm CT, 9:30 am - 11:30 am MT, 8:30 am - 10:30 am PT or your equivalent. This time works well for most European times zones

Oct 2, Oct 16, Oct 30, Nov 13, Nov 27, Dec 11

Prerequisite: Part 2 or equivalent Focusing partnership experience


This class will flow into a Part 4 that meets for 8 times. This may begin in January, 2024. It's also possible we start this course a bit later as this benefits some of those interested. The Part 4 will then get bumped back a bit. We will do what best meets needs of the group. More information on Part 4 is here:

There will be lectures, demonstrations, question periods, group exercises and paired exercises. You will be paired to practice a Focusing exercise with another participant or possibly me each class session. There will also be an additional paired homework exercise between sessions that will take approximately an hour. This additional exercise is usually done over the phone or videoconference. Please plan to attend all sessions for the full time of the meeting. Missing one class is still easy to keep up with us. If you miss more than one class, we'll talk about ways to make it up or it may be best to repeat the level.
