Meeting Format

Give yourself, or give a friend, the gift of Focusing.

I am offering this 4-session course as a fund-raiser for The International Focusing Institute (TIFI). The course is free. I hope that, if you like it, you will make a donation to TIFI. How much you give is up to you. It is totally separate from registering for this course.

My approach to teaching Focusing is to show you how it is based on a natural ability that we all have. You will be pleasantly surprised to see how much you already know. And you will quickly gain a deeper understanding of the process from practicing it and discussing it.

This course is not just for people who are new to Focusing. If you are already a Focuser, it will give you a stimulating framework to further develop your skills. 

The core practice of Focusing is the mindful listening partnership. So, in session 1, we start by paying attention to the different ways that we can listen.

In session 2, we build from there to notice and deepen the natural three-step process of mindful engagement that underlies Focusing.

In session 3, we pay more attention to the felt sense: how it forms, how we notice it, how it carries forward.

In session 4, we integrate this naturally flowing practice with the traditional description of Focusing as a six-step process.

All 4 sessions include time in break-out rooms for practice. 

Sessions are on Saturdays January 16, February 6, February 27, and March 20. Sessions start at 1 PM Eastern Time USA (New York City). Each session lasts two hours. If you had registered prior to January 11, please note that some dates have changed.

Serge Prengel is a Focusing-oriented therapist. He has been hosting TIFI’s Focusing Conversations series and the Active Pause & Mindfulness podcast. Leslie Ellis, Jan Winhall and Serge Prengel are starting a 2-year FOT training in April.
