With climate change and the pandemic affecting our lives today, it does feel like there is an increasing evolutionary pressure on us as human beings to come into a new relationship with Life. One in which our hearts are more fully open to the “Life within and without”.

Key to this opening up to Life is what is called Radical Acceptance, which also lies at the heart of Focusing. 

As a Wholebody Focusing trainer Addie teaches this as the practice of “Letting Things Be”. Three simple words but they belie many misconceptions about what it actually means, not just in Focusing but also as a different way of relating to our experience in everyday life. 

In this session we will explore the practice of Letting Things Be, including re-defining discomfort. It will include guided exercises, and opportunities to share and ask questions. Addie's hope is that after this session you will feel inspired to continue this practice of radical acceptance with greater ease, clarity and understanding.

This class is intended for those who are familiar with Focusing, though all are welcome to attend.

We use Zoom videoconferencing for our online classes. In this webinar format, you will see the teacher and host, but you will not be seen. You will be able to ask questions during the webinar by typing them.

You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred. All registered participants will be sent a link to the video recording approximately two weeks following the class. So if you are unable to attend in person, you will still be able to view the class.
