Meeting Format

You are invited to further explore and delve into the intricacies of Inner Relationship Focusing. This nine-week live virtual course provides you the time and space to assimilate and utilize the insights acquired in Foundations Training Part 1. By developing your inner environment, you will be able to foster genuine, profound, and enduring transformation!

We will continue creating intimate class environments, emphasizing active and experiential learning. We continue to systematically develop and safely apply our advancing Focusing skills. There will be lectures, demonstrations, opportunities for questions and reflections, group exercises, games and paired exercises.

You Can Expect To:

  • Master the structure of the advanced Focusing process
  • Develop sophisticated listening and communication techniques
  • Learn how to break or stretch the 'rules' when the Focuser’s process calls for it
  • Identify and understand how to support conflicting parts, exiled parts, and the harsh inner critique
  • Apply new ways of responding when the Focusing process seems blocked, experiencing resistance, or when you're stuck in your head
  • Access profound states of knowing during Focusing sessions and experience radical life shifts
  • Differentiate Parts and Felt Senses
  • Discover new concepts and further develop your confidence with Focusing
  • Utilize Partnerships with your peers and Solo Focusing
  • Embody the process so you can access your inner knowing for the rest of your life
