As these uncertain times continue to challenge us in unprecedented ways, our need for connection and emotional support is greater than ever.

This is a 30-minute free webinar (with Ann Weiser Cornell) with warm, positive tips for emotional self-care in these challenging times.

Our hope is that you’ll leave the webinar with a greater sense of resilience and some relief from the stressful feelings you might be having. And that you’ll know you are not alone.

Annette Dubreuil Changes Group - circle of chairs
**We meet twice per month.**

A Changes Group is a free-of-charge, peer-led group that meets so people can exchange Focusing and listening turns in an atmosphere of safety and mutual respect. It's a group for continuing your Focusing practice; no teaching will be done. We meet on zoom and breakout rooms are used after a brief group centering and grounding practice.

This Changes Group is open to people who have not done Focusing before. Beginners can observe in a triad and then have a turn. So you can feel free to invite someone who is curious to come with you.

The Sydney Focusing Changes Group meets monthly on the first Saturday of each month, and alternates between in-person meetings and Zoom meetings.
The June meeting will be in person. We meet from 9:45am to 12:15pm in the hall below St Patrick's Church, Grosvenor St, Sydney (between Wynyard and The Rocks).
The July meeting will be on Zoom.
In either case, we follow a typical Changes Group format - forming the circle with an attunement and an invitation for anyone to say whatever they would like to say; Focusing in pairs or triads; and coming back to the circle for a time of closing.
Hall below St Patrick's Catholic Church, Grosvenor St, Sydney.

TIFI Events Logo Highlights Jenna Chevalier
Drawing like Focusing is a set of individual skills or parts that, when combined, result in a global process that allows us to see the world in a new way. Discard notions of what an artist is and use drawings as an experience that can be tooled, like writing, to deepen your understanding of your experience.

Join us to cross and explore the relationship between the wholes and parts of these ways of seeing. We will learn how drawing can be a perceptual problem-solving tool and process record in your focusing practice.

All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful but is not required. People who say “I am not an artist, I can barely draw a stick figure” as well as working or professional artists are equally welcome.
Online (Class will also be recorded)

TIFI logo Serge Prengel

This experiential workshop is especially timely for people who live in an area where re-entry is starting at some point this year. For those in countries where re-entry is still a distant hope, this class might help you prepare for when that moment finally comes.

Attending live is encouraged as there will be the some exercises in breakout rooms, though all registrants will receive a link to the recording afterwards.

TIFI Event Logo Donata Schoeller
This 4-day intensive workshop will focus on Gendlin’s 'basic model' within A Process Model.

In this experiential workshop, Donata will guide participants through chosen paragraphs from the first 4 chapters which lay a path of understanding. From there it will be easier and more pleasurable to re-read the original text.

Registrants should have familiarity with Focusing, but do not need experience with philosophy or A Process Model.

NOTE: This workshop is designed for either full live registration or registration for the recordings. Each day of this 4-day workshop builds upon the day before. Therefore, we ask that registrants plan to attend all 4 sessions live or wait for the recordings.

All registrants will receive a link to the recordings approximately 2 weeks after the conclusion of the workshop (breakout rooms are not recorded).
