Meeting Format

Hello! The Focusing Basics program is designed so that you can begin to Focus by yourself and with a partner from the first class onward. Professionals can learn Focusing from this program as a first step towards using it with your clients. 

Focusing is about allowing and listening to what is true for us at levels deeper than our conscious awareness. We do this by a process that allows us to become mindful of the wisdom, or truth embodied within.

With Focusing you will be able to make decisions you feel good about, feel more vital in your life, have a deeper connection with yourself and your spirituality, build better relationships with others and yourself, learn how to deal with your inner critic- in general, Focusing will positively impact every aspect of your life!Having now taught Focusing for nearly 30 years (the 10th on Zoom!) I continue to enjoy- and learn more about- sharing this wonderful process with each class I teach. 

A small group setting ensures plenty of personal attention for every student while also allowing Focusing to be modeled within the group. Classes cover everything from using the process on your own and with a partner, to understanding the philosophy behind it. Taking this course will help you gain a fundamental understanding of Focusing in an easy-to-understand manner.

You will receive a 1-1 Guided Focusing Session with Ruth, a 138 page Training Manual, the 8 week training, homework partnership assignments, and email check-ins between classes. Following each class, participants will receive a recording of the session.
