This is a Monthly Online Changes Meeting for Exploring Interaction on the third Sunday of each month. These monthly meetings will be held on third Sundays at both 11am ET and 7pm ET New York time, entirely online, using Zoom technology.

In the style of Gene Gendlin's FREE Changes Meetings in the earliest days of Focusing (continuing to this day!), LearnFocusing.org is delighted to offer a Monthly Exploring Interaction Changes Meeting -- Improving Relationships with Self and Others.

Facilitated by Barbara Dickinson, Certified teacher of Interactive Focusing and Certified Focusing Professional (TIFI), participants will have the opportunity to experience  Demonstrations of Interactive Focusing (for beginners), as well as partner with more experienced Interactive Focusers (intermediate to advanced).

Occasionally, there will be short videos or guest coaches offering an opportunity to share in a discussion about the creators of Interactive Focusing and how it has evolved over time.

Barbara is offering these for free and you are welcome to contribute toward our Focusing Belongs in Schools project if that feels right for you.

The meetings will be structured similarly to traditional “Changes Meetings”, with a brief check in. We will explain a different aspect of Interactive Focusing each month at the beginning of the gathering with the goal of improving relationships with self and others. 

All levels of experience with Focusing are welcome! We will provide newcomers with an introduction to felt sensing and empathic listening. If you are an experienced Focuser but new to Interactive Focusing, we will provide explanations and resources at each meeting.

The group will break into partnerships in dyads and triads, with some who are experienced in Interactive Focusing available as guides.
