An experiential workshop in Social Oriented Focusing (SOF) facilitated by Yehudit First
Imagine being really present in the here-and-now…enjoying interpersonal moments with the freedom to be yourself, to feel good – to experience surprise and delight instead of repetitive, stressful patterns of interaction.
SOF teaches us to untie the KNOTS and NOTS that interfere with relating to others, enabling us to overcome blocks, fears, and automatic behaviors.
In this workshop, we shall take a journey where we will explore how meeting our self and the other in an SOF way through the elements of Earth, Water, Fire & Air influences, transforms, nourishes, and creates a new living field of connectedness and possibilities in us and between us.
The workshop will include presentations, guided experiential and breakout room exercises, and time for sharing and questions.
All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful.
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 will be limited.
All registrants (whether or not you attend live) can view the recording for one month. Breakout rooms are not recorded.
