From Katrijn and Julian:

We invite you to an insight into and from within our shared and evolving process. It is a container we have been constructing together delicately for the last four years. A place where nothing needs to happen, and anything is possible. What wants to happen there is waiting to be witnessed, welcomed, and created.

This is not a workshop, a class, a demonstration, a Q and A or a ‘how to’, although it holds the potential to be all those things. 

We offer an insight into and from within our shared process.

We invite you to experience our container somewhere in between a focusing and an artistic practice. In fact, we came together four years ago with this very intention. What has unfolded has been an adventure that has taken us through different countries, time zones, remote locations, our own homes, museums, and natural settings. From The amazon to the Parthenon to the depths of our internal workings.

Starting with the principles of relational wholebody focusing; we pause, take time, and zoom into the fundamental movements of two people relating. This connection is held by a structure. Every interaction that occurs between us happens within and is informed by this structure. Every time we meet, we take time to lay the foundations of this structure. After four years of delicate and dedicated work the structure holds not only the entirety of our human relationship but something more, something greater than us. Something that can be harnessed, questioned, and worked with. Something that supports inquiry and exploration. 

Til now we have welcomed personal queries, administrative emails, works of art, classic architecture, elements of the natural world, indigenous spiritual practices, personal triumph and tragedy, relics and ruins, time, distance and duration into this form to startling and informative results. Always holding a place for what wants to happen.

In this session we explore in real time a new development. What is possible when we open our focusing structure to others? Are we welcoming an audience, a group of participants, something in between? We don’t know yet. What information is available to us in this place? And where can it guide us? 

If this proposal is as interesting and exciting as it continues to be for us, we look forward to welcoming you. To this place of adventure and discovery. Delicate and dangerous. Strong and special. With the potential to hold everything and nothing at all.

All are welcome to attend. Some experience with Focusing will be helpful but is not required.

All registrants (whether or not you attend live) receive the recording approximately 2 weeks after the session, and will be available for one month after you receive it. Breakout rooms are not recorded.


We use Zoom videoconferencing for our online classes. The session will be held in meeting format so that all participants can see the presenters and each other. You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred as participation in breakout rooms will be limited.
