Meeting Format

Hello! I'm delighted to offer this comprehensive foundational program designed to teach the basics of Focusing in a way that will allow you to begin to Focus by yourself and with a partner from the first class. this is my 29th year of teaching Focusing (my 9th on Zoom!) I enjoy- and learn more about- sharing this wonderful process more and more with each class I teach. 

This program is equivalent to Levels 1 and 2- and more. You'll get the 8 week training, a 1-1 Guided Focusing Session with Ruth, a 136 page Training Manual, homework partnerships, and email check-ins and support between classes. Classes will be recorded and recordings provided to participants following each class session.

During these times when the world and our place in it might feel uncertain, Focusing offers you a straight-forward way to find inner peace and meaning through connecting more deeply with yourself and each other.

With plenty of personal attention in a small group setting, plus classes that cover everything from learning how to use the process for yourself, and how to better understand the philosophy behind the process- taught in an easy to understand way that you'll be able to relate to, you’ll gain a fundamental understanding of Focusing. You'll acquire the skills and ability to use this remarkable process in your life, by yourself and with a partner.

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

Learning Focusing will allow you to make decisions that you feel good about, have more vitality in your life, connect more fully with yourself and your spirituality, improve your relationship with yourself and others, learn how to work with the inner critic- in general, learning Focusing will positively affect all aspects of your life!

This program is also suitable as a first step for professionals in learning Focusing for use with your clients.
