In this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn the basic 6 Steps of Focusing. 

  1. Clearing a Space (getting ready to Focus)

  2. Getting a Felt Sense (physical sensations, emotions, thoughts and memories)

  3. Finding a Handle (a word, phrase or image that gets to the crux of our felt sense)

  4. Resonating (ensuring the handle and felt sense match just right)

  5. Asking (asking the body a few questions and noticing how it answers)

  6. Receiving (welcoming what comes and thanking the body)

This is a group workshop delivered on zoom. There will be a Focusing demo. And you will have the opportunity to experience Focusing for a 20-minute turn, as well as a listening turn in breakout groups. We will delve into the 6 steps of Focusing, different options for listening, and get your Focusing questions answered. Jan Winhall's Felt Sense/Polyvagal Model is also covered.

You will receive a handout of the 6 steps of Focusing and body cards to record your experience.
