Where & When
Details are provided upon registration.
You are invited to continue learning, growing, and evolving your Focusing skills within the community! The structure of the Level 2 is very similar to Level 1 with a live online five-week course.
As you may remember from our Level 1 course, we pride ourselves on creating intimate class environments while fostering active, experiential learning! We promise you will not stare at the computer screen and never speak in class!
We continue systematically developing and safely applying our forming Focusing skills. There will be lectures, live and recorded demonstrations, opportunities for questions and reflections, group exercises, games and paired exercises within and outside of class time.
You Can Expect To:
- Strengthen your ability to 'be with' challenging thoughts and feelings
- Increase your sense of inner peace and feel better about yourself
- Experience how the Companion can help the Focuser stay at "an edge"

- Appropriately use self-instruction to take yourself through the Focusing process
- Experience the expansion of The Companion role with additional verbal support and guidance for the Focuser
