Ann Weiser Cornell Peter Gill
When you gaze up at the stars at night, do you have a sense of being a loved and cherished part of a larger compassionate system?

Or do you feel small and insignificant, and that the universe is cold, chaotic, and uncaring?

Here’s what I’ve learned: The difference between these two worldviews is not an intellectual decision. It’s something you can feel in the wisdom of your body.

Over my 49 years of listening inwardly using Focusing, I’ve made an astonishing discovery: The more I listen within, the more I feel connected to what is much bigger than me.

Join me and Peter Gill — and explore how inner awareness can connect you to the spiritual dimension.

Befriending What is Difficult

8 week experiential class in a Focusing approach to how to befriend what is difficult. It is a given that life is full of difficulties. Some of them arise in a moment or full day of challenges or frustration and others are those longer term difficulties that seem to defy solution and return to us again and again. The fact of them is inescapable but how we walk with them, how we carry them, can make a world of difference in how the journey feels as we choose our next steps and travel the rough terrain. Taking a Rumi’s “Guest House” approach to what is challenging can completely shift our experience and allow us to discover the gifts hidden in what we find challenging. Class size limited to 12. Participants should plan to attend live. Some sessions will be recorded by request and made available to class participants only if they cannot attend a particular session.

Ann Weiser Cornell
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.

Ann Weiser Cornell
Want to watch as Ann Weiser Cornell guides someone through their very first Focusing session?

Focusing can be puzzling to talk about. It can be hard to learn from a book or a video. But when someone is actually taken through the process, you get it! Be present to observe as Ann guides three first-time Focusers (one each week) - and then comment afterward. The guest Focusers are volunteers who understand that their session will be witnessed by a safe and respectful group of people.

TIFI events logo Katrijn Van Loock Julian Crotti
NOTE: Katrijn and Julian's offering is 90 minutes. The additional 30 minutes is for those attending the live session to go into breakout rooms for partnership practice (optional).

"This is not a workshop, a class, a demonstration, a Q and A or a ‘how to’, although it holds the potential to be all those things. We offer an insight into and from within our shared process. We invite you to an insight into and from within our shared and evolving process. It is a container we have been constructing together delicately for the last four years.

Starting with the principles of relational wholebody focusing; we pause, take time, and zoom into the fundamental movements of two people relating. This connection is held by a structure. Every interaction that occurs between us happens within and is informed by this structure. Every time we meet, we take time to lay the foundations of this structure.

In this session we will explore in real time a new development. What is possible when we open our focusing structure to others? If this proposal is as interesting and exciting as it continues to be for us, we look forward to welcoming you. To this place of adventure and discovery."

Eugene Gendlin’s PHILOSOPHY OF THE IMPLICIT
In this series, we will see how Gendlin’s new world of process thinking transforms the work of psychotherapy. The awareness of how we are interacting rather than what we are talking about gives the therapy relationship a new environment, a new home base. We will show how the philosophical concepts illuminate the moment-to-moment therapeutic interaction, deepening and broadening our
understanding of what makes for growth and change.

TIFI events Rob Parker
PLEASE NOTE: This class ended on November 17 but you may complete a post registration which will give you access to all recordings and resources until February 28, 2022.

An interactive 4-session course facilitated by Rob Parker. Live sessions on Wednesdays: October 27, November 3, November 10, and November 17, 2021.

The Experience of felt sensing is in many ways at the heart of Focusing and of Gendlin's philosophy of the implicit. But how well do we understand this experience? For example, how is it that the body can “know” something that the mind does not? Isn't "knowing" supposed to happen in the brain?

Using lecture, discussion and experiential exercises, this course will explore Gendlin's understanding of felt sense, and along the way we will also explore his understanding of consciousness, meaning, and life. Thus it will also be a good introduction to Gendlin's philosophy. And if you are already familiar with Gendlin's philosophy, this series may help you carry your understanding forward in a new way.

All are welcome. The class size will not be limited and participants do not need to attend live. Recordings of the individual sessions will available to all registrants prior to the next session (except in the case of technical difficulties).

This is the last of our three part interactive online course. During our 6 classes, we will guide you in a playful way, through the third phase of TAE (steps 10 - 14). You will be connecting terms (words, phrases, concepts) to bring together what you have found in the preceding steps. This allows you to create a formal theory that is logical and rooted in felt-sensing, which can be applied to other fields and to your own topic.

Love your first experience with TAE and want more? You don’t have to have steps 1 - 9 to join us for this class.

Addiction treatment has been driven by a pathologizing model that leaves out the wisdom of the body in the healing journey. This forum will bring together leading experts who will share the evolving new paradigms based on cultural trends, scientific discoveries, recent research, new clinical approaches, and treatment center experiences.

This event will address aspects of managed care at treatment centers. It will present the inter-related treatment of trauma and addiction using bottom-up and top-down integrative approaches. Through our panelist presentations and discussions, clinicians, practitioners, professionals, and staffers can get the big picture and in-practice insights for treatment.

The Q&A segment will address today's pressing questions in our field.

This USABP Forum precedes the 2022 International Body Psychotherapy Journal Spring-Summer Issue (our international peer-reviewed journal) that will feature articles, research, book reviews, and more on addiction. Submissions for articles are accepted until February 1st.

This event is a USABP fundraiser.

Annette Dubreuil timeline
Understanding who we are in an embodied way is a powerful way to grow our emotional regulation and emotional intelligence. When we know what it feels like in our bodies when we get scared, or mad, or are happy—or when more complicated patterns or parts emerge—then we can more quickly notice these shifts in our autonomic nervous system. This clarity helps us know when we need to self-soothe or reach out to others for co-regulation.

The class spends the first three weeks in the grounded parts, building a “safe nest” to do the deeper Focusing on our wounded and protector parts in weeks four to seven. As we map our parts, we also map out our timeline. At first with the key memories, and then with the parts that are connected to the memories. We finish the class by completing our timelines and noticing what additional insights emerge for us in being with the timeline.

Highlights logo Aston K McCullough
Following the Felt Sense often leads to a quality of contentment. . . and maybe even delight.

Gendlin teaches that we are one interaction, and he has shown that we may understand this principle in an embodied way. If we attend to the ‘outer’ world as a Focusing partner, as both a Listener and fellow Focuser, the reality of our one interaction becomes increasingly apparent. This Focusing Highlight explores the interplay between the ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ worlds.

This Highlight is intended for those already familiar with Focusing though all are welcome to attend. Participants will be invited to share, ask questions, and be part of a demonstration.

Our goal here is to return to the essence of Focusing and ourselves as living process. I ask that participants are Focusing weekly with a partner at least one month before class begins and throughout our time together. There is a lot of reading, often more than you might choose to do. We touch on a variety of approaches to learn and practice Focusing. My Part 4 is a great place to return to whenever you would like to go deeper with your process from wherever it is. If you are interested in joining the Learning Community for Mastery in Guiding Change this September as a place to land for your certification process, this class would be excellent prep. Requires Part 3 or equivalent experience.

Meets eight times on Tuesdays, 7 - 9 pm New York time.

Felt understanding underpins all our saying and doing, as Gendlin demonstrates in 'Experiencing and the creation of meaning'. Focusing practice shows, though, that the thoroughness and sensitivity with which we let felt understanding shape our saying and doing varies greatly. This series of six workshops introduces you to practice experiments that you can use to explore how you listen and talk, where others' are coming from, and ways to shift conversational rhythms to create more space for everyone to dip into felt understanding as you think and talk together. 6 weeks for 2 hours, from mid February to the end of March.

Honoring the work of Eugene T. Gendlin
"Embodied Liberation: the Felt Sense & Social Justice”

“We cannot be sure that Focusing will always undo imposed forms from society, but having a ‘political analysis’ can help us to see things and question things that we might not otherwise notice.”

During this time when the world and our place in it might feel uncertain, the process of learning Focusing offers you the ability to connect with your self and each other in a deeper more meaningful way.

Learning Focusing will allow you to make decisions that you feel good about, have more vitality in your life, connect more fully with yourself and your spirituality, improve your relationship with yourself and others, learn how to work with the inner critic- in general, learning Focusing will positively affect all aspects of your life!

Our current model of understanding addiction as a brain disease is failing. Rates are soaring and people are dying in the streets. We desperately need a fresh approach. One that addresses addiction and other trauma responses where they live, in the body. In this workshop we will explore the intersection of trauma and addiction and how to address both with an embodied approach.

The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ (FSPM) shifts the current pathologizing paradigm to a strength-based approach. Through the lens of Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal theory, addiction is seen as an adaptive stress response in our autonomic nervous system. Addictive behaviors are the body’s attempt to emotionally regulate by acting as propellers that facilitate neurophysiological shifts in our nervous system. The model integrates Porges Polyvagal theory and Gendlin’s Felt Sense Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy enabling us to appreciate trauma/addictive behaviors as adaptive responses in maladaptive environments. The FSPM provides a generic framework that can support any therapeutic modality.

The webinar series will present an introduction to Jan’s book Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model. Included is a detailed description of the FSPM theoretical framework, an introduction to The Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool™ and Carnes Three Circle Practice, a tool for working with addiction. Participants will also learn about Gendlin’s Focusing/Felt Sense practice. A mixture of didactic information, experiential practices, demonstrations, and case examples will guide the clinician in applying the model. This course will be informative for those new to the field of trauma/addiction as well as seasoned practitioners.

The theme is inspired by the simple, yet fundamental question which Carl Rogers asked himself: “How can I be of help?” It is a question we think is of interest for person centered and experiential (PCE) practitioners and researchers, as well as more broadly in the world of psychotherapy. A question we find it worthwhile revisiting in order to explore what answers may be found today.

In the first-year students learn the core essentials of focusing guiding and how to help their client’s ‘go inside’ to find, open, and move forward a felt sense, leading to transformation and lasting change.
In the second-year students learn how to weave the guiding they learnt in the first year seamlessly into the more fluid and improvisational style of a therapeutic conversation. In addition, we learn how to work with the ‘one interaction’ that we are together by using the felt sense of the relationship (the felt sense of the ‘I’, of the ‘You’, & of the ‘Us’) to move the interaction and the client forward. We further learn how to be ‘the interaction that makes it better’ which is the concept and practice that Eugene Gendlin talked about being the center of his work with clients.
