We will be utilizing a program called Zoom. You will need to download it onto your computer or smartphone to join us via video. Once you are registered, I will send you a link that we will use for all of the class sessions. You’ll be in a conference space with myself as teacher, an assistant, 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.

Level 1 is like training wheels. With Levels 2-4, we get even better at riding any terrain that life presents us with. No matter what your level of Focusing skill is when you begin these trainings, the door is now open to a sense of more empowerment. In ever-flowing layers, here we come to understand that we are always changing and evolving and Focusing is that essence from which we feel flow and thriving in our lives. More often we consciously understand how to bring ourselves back to what feels open, alive and flowing anytime we do not feel that way either inside ourselves or with what is going on in the world around us.
LEVEL 2 is about deepening into the Focusing and Listening process by looking more at the role of the Companion. A companion to ourselves as well as others. We learn lead-ins. Then, wherever your process is now, this course nurtures your next step. Here, we begin reading and exploring the neuroscience behind this process. Our ability to be larger than our emotions or challenges gets stronger. Our understanding of what it is like to stand on the edge of something new gains clarity. Practice with others in the class opens up our process to even more ways of communicating with us.
The structure of the class for Level 2 is very similar to Level 1. We continue our emphasis on Empowered Focuser, Relaxed Companion and on deepening our understanding of this state of being we call Presence from which all the rest of Focusing unfolds.
There will be lectures, demonstrations, question periods, group exercises, and paired exercises. You will be paired to practice a Focusing exercise with another participant each class session. There will also be an additional paired homework exercise between sessions that will take approximately 45 min. Even with local classes, this additional exercise is usually done over the phone. Please plan to attend all 6 sessions for the full time of the meeting. Missing one or two classes is acceptable. If you miss more than two classes, it is best to repeat the Level.
For the videoconference class, all you need is a computer with a camera. You can also attend via a cellphone. You’ll be able to see everyone in the class, generally, whoever is speaking appears larger at the time. You can mute and turn off your video camera as needed. Recordings are available if you miss a class. Video seminars work amazingly well. Hope to see you here!
