Meeting Format

Designed and led by Ruth Hirsch, an internationally recognized trainer with over 25 years experience teaching Focusing, this program is equivalent to Levels 1 and 2. Includes 8 week training, 1-1 Guided Focusing Session with Ruth, comprehensive 136 page Manual, homework partnerships and email 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 ample personal attention in a small group setting (maximum 8 participants) you’ll gain a fundamental understanding of Focusing. You'll acquire the skills and ability to use this remarkable process in your life, both 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.
