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.

Social Oriented Focusing (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 two-part journey: 1st part:  From ‘I’ space to ‘we space’ - Experimenting in moving from the 'I  space' to the 'we space', we will sense what happens inside us when we move from being in front of each other (me & you) to being together (us/we). 2nd part:  Seeing and being seen from the heart - We will explore how meeting in an SOF way from the heart nurtures both partners in the interaction, creating a place for my light to meet your light, impacting the whole relationship.

Live attendance is recommended. All registrants (whether or not you attend live) will receive an email to view the recording after the workshop. The recording will be available for one month after the workshop concludes. Breakout rooms are not recorded.

Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful, though all are welcome to attend.

Eating has many familiar descriptions, such as; emotional eating, eating addiction, eating disorders, mindful-eating, intuitive eating, etc.

What can be discovered when these descriptions are peeled-off? 
What can be found underneath hunger, below the concept? 
What can be found when this life force is developed?

In this webinar we will experientially discover the BIG picture of eating. It will also facilitate a new curiosity and mind-opening concepts for self-exploration of hunger.

Some experience with Focusing will be helpful, though all are welcome to attend.

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.

Not feeling good about yourself can be like living under a dark cloud that casts a gloomy shadow on whatever you say, do, think, feel… And that makes life harder than it has to be.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can learn how to handle emotional triggers, difficult habits, and inner critics in a way that leaves you feeling better about yourself. Let me help you get started (and share what you can do to keep going!).

Jan Winhall
Taught by Jan Winhall, this self-paced, six-hour course provides an introduction to Winhall’s Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™, a therapeutic strategy integrating Porges’ polyvagal theory with Gendlin’s felt-sense to de-pathologize trauma and addiction. The model provides a generic framework that can enrich many areas of study including education, health, and organizational development by integrating awareness of embodied processes and how vitally relevant that is to desired outcomes.

The course is an opportunity to spend time with your wanting or project in both an embodied and more than logical way. Like being in contact with a yet undiscovered treasure box. With FOCUSING, a practice laid out by philosopher and psychotherapist Eugene T. Gendlin, you will get in touch with your Felt Sense and be able to develop surprisingly fresh understandings that make a difference, especially in how you are with your issue. By adding certain moves of THINKING AT THE EDGE (TAE), another practice Gendlin, Mary Hendricks and Kye Nelson created, we will show you how you can speak more and more precisely from your Felt Sense. In doing so, you will discover important details by redefining key terms, becoming aware of paradoxes or clarifying the richness of your lived experience.

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 us and explore how inner awareness can connect you to the spiritual dimension.

Are you a person, a therapist, a coach, an accompanier, a Focusing facilitator with varied background/different certifications/diverse work experiences? a polymath?
Do you ask yourself what it is that differentiates you from your colleagues?
Do you want to merge Focusing with your whole knowledge?

This class is intended for anyone interested in merging Focusing with their other bodies of knowledge, for those who are looking for a way to communicate their way of being with clients and clarify the "unique product" they offer, creating your "niche" as an accompanier. Or simply anyone who is feeling the need to mold something out of everything they know and learned, and being able to bring it to the world.

PRACTICING FOCUSING-ORIENTED RELATIONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY
This seminar is both didactic and experiential. We encourage spontaneous dialogue, and improvisational demos as well as reflecting on theoretical understandings and discussing readings. It is designed for therapists but does not exclude those in other helping professions. We have three modules a year. New participants are invited to join at the beginning of each module.

Topics include:

Exploring the organic “US-ness” we are made of.

Embodying the culture of a “connectedness sensibility.” (Richard Geist)

Cultivating “US” thinking and attitudes.

Bringing relational consciousness to conflict and disagreement.

Attending to the “I” of ourselves as well as the “YOU” of the client and the “US” of the partnership.

Navigating our own needs in relation to our clients in ways that further the therapeutic relationship.

Keeping our balance in the pulls and pushes of genuine relating.

Cultivating an improvisational spirit as we stay connected to our own inner felt sense.

This Course is designed for therapists, coaches, social workers or just anybody who wants to enhance their work with clients, and with themselves, through attending to their bodily wisdom.
It is a short course that goes for 1 1/2 hours every week, in January 2023, that can be taken independently or as part of the whole Certification Program.
Whether you are already using Focusing for yourself or in your work with other people in whatever area, this is going to enrich your own life and help you listen to others in a deeply embodied way, knowing that Wisdom and the capacity for healing is in our bodies. And, when we integrate this deep body wisdom with any other avenue we are working with, we can better help our clients explore their own issues, move forward in their lives and develop new and fresh ways of living and interacting.

As we enter 2023, our plans and resolutions are taking shape. But that initial enthusiasm may be overshadowed by last year's experience of again not getting to your most valuable project. Maybe it's writing that one article or even a book, devising a new course, or reworking your website.

We can't start early enough to identify our challenges. In this session, you'll dive into what's holding you back from committing to your endeavor so you can overcome the first obstacle. Be surprised at how your hesitation can be a resource for your project.

Our human life is a co-created work of art, where the process of creation is enabled as we turn towards a different kind of order; towards an infinite order. TAE steps can support us in carrying forward this extraordinary creation.

In the first phase of the course we will concentrate on explicating the ‘knowing of our lives’. We will continue from there to explore how this inner knowing can manifest and direct us in our field of expertise or developing creative project.

This workshop began December 9. You can still join this workshop in progress. Recordings of previous sessions will be available after you register.

Living forward is an experience of vital energy that is present in the human body, in nature, in the universe.

In this workshop Mia won’t present big theories, nor will she explain specific knowledge. Each session will start with an introduction to frame the theme and a little bit of sharing from the richness she discovered through various resources. From lived experience she developed some ‘exercises’ or ‘invitations’ everyone can use to explore their own path, trust their own wisdom, discover their own truth and connect to their own mysteries. During the workshop some exercises will be in Focusing pairs (30 minutes in breakout rooms). Each session will close with reflections on the experiential knowledge developed during practicing with living forward principles.

Registrants should have familiarity with Focusing.

Recording Note: Recordings will be made available to all registrants as soon as possible after each session for viewing prior to the next session (except in the case of unexpected technical difficulty). Breakout rooms are not recorded. All recordings will be available for registrants until March 31, 2023.

Nervous System Reset Amona Buechler, Focusing Trainer
December 2022 through February 2023

You might be very familiar with a habitual background atmosphere of restlessness, anxiousness, agitation, or something like that.
At times when this happens, you might know that this inner activation is counter-productive and out of place somehow, but how to find your way to a more relaxed, easy-going state of being?

After accidents, certain neurological illnesses, or challenging emotional incidences, the autonomic nervous system can get stuck in repetitive patterns that challenge our health, well-being, sense of safety and connection, and our creative potential.
We can reprogram our autonomic nervous system and brain, and with that our physical and emotional responses to life’s happenings.

Focusing, Feldenkrais, neuro regulating exercises, theory

highlights logo TIFI events logo Elizabeth English
Originally scheduled for November 14, now December Have you ever wondered where Focusing ends and meditation begins (or vice versa)? Do you struggle to meditate consistently? Is your meditation difficult to enjoy – or not quite as delicious as you wish? As a long-term meditator and Focuser (and teacher of both), Elizabeth is fascinated by the processes which take us on our inner journeys. Her approach is flexible and inclusive, in a nutshell, uncovering ways to “meditate as you can, not as you can’t”.

Elizabeth also weaves creativity into her meditation. She draws on poetry and colour to help you plunge happily into your inner world. Her recent book “Journeys to the Deep: A Gentle Guide to Mindfulness Meditation” illustrates this approach. Taking time to reflect and muse after a meditation, she suggests ways in which mini-solo-focusing just after meditating can enrich our meditation and our Focusing, and help us to process and absorb the shifts, transitions, and transformations that we experience – but sometimes miss.

The webinar will include guided meditation experiences, presentation, and time for questions and group sharing. These are designed for any level. It is relevant whether you are just setting out, as a Focuser or meditator, or if you are in need of a meditation refresher or wishing to go deeper with an existing practice.

No es fácil recordar nuestra capacidad innata de sentir la vida en cada momento, de encontrarnos con partes de nosotros y esas partes que se despiertan en contacto con el entorno y otras personas.
A menudo, estas facetas de nosotros están tan arraigadas en nuestra experiencia que sentimos que esto es lo que somos. Desde allí vivimos la mayor parte del tiempo, con algo allí dentro de nosotros que está en el transfondo de la experiencia, por lo que, en cierto modo, están en gran medida donde se forma la experiencia de la vida.
Focusing puede ayudarte a sanar y a tener una relación amistosa con tus partes más difíciles y complejas para una evolución progresiva dentro de ti.
En este monográfico nos adenatramos en como acompañar y hacernos amigos de nuestra parte crítica.

Amona Buechler Focusing Trainer Focusing for developing emotional intelligence
Introduction to Focusing and my Basic Focusing Skills Course

Relate to yourself and others with freshness, emotional intelligence, and an open heart.
Focusing offers a way for coming into loving contact with yourself and others. When you are in contact with your body, with your inner sense of something, letting your expressions arise from there, you are accessing insights that are much deeper and vaster than the emotional or mental dimensions alone can offer.
With this foundation, the way in which your life unfolds is experienced as deeply meaningful; sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s difficult, but there is always an undercurrent sense of rightness, of following a natural flow.

Intro:
Monday, November 21, 2022, 1.5-hours

Tere González, Certified Focusing Professional
“Lo que se divide, no se siente, permanece igual. Cuando se siente, cambia.
¡La mayoría de la gente no sabe esto! Piensan que al no permitir el sentimiento de sus formas negativas se hacen buenos. Por el contrario, eso mantiene estas partes negativas estáticas, lo mismo de año en año. Unos momentos de sentirlo en el cuerpo le permiten cambiar. Si hay en ti algo malo, enfermo o poco sólido, déjalo estar internamente y respira. Esa es la única forma en que puede evolucionar y cambiar a la forma que necesita”

Amona Buechler Focusing Trainer Focusing for developing emotional intelligence
Introduction to Focusing and my Basic Focusing Skills Course

Relate to yourself and others with freshness, emotional intelligence, and an open heart.
Focusing offers a way for coming into loving contact with yourself and others. When you are in contact with your body, with your inner sense of something, letting your expressions arise from there, you are accessing insights that are much deeper and vaster than the emotional or mental dimensions alone can offer.
With this foundation, the way in which your life unfolds is experienced as deeply meaningful; sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s difficult, but there is always an undercurrent sense of rightness, of following a natural flow.

The full course will take place: January 2 to July 10, 2023, Mondays.

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.

“The essence of working with another person is to be present as a living being. And that is lucky, because if we had to be smart, or good, or mature, or wise, then we would probably be in trouble. But, what matters is not that. What matters is to be a human being with another human being, to recognize the other person as another being in there.”

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.

Two course time options, Wednesday, October 12-December 7 2022 (no class November 2)

Annette Dubreuil Woman sitting on a bench looking at the sunrise
In this 8-week group, you will use Focusing to transform a significant issue in your life, in part by deepening your access to Self through the 8Cs of Self-Leadership. The 8Cs are calmness, connectedness, curiosity, clarity, compassion, confidence, courage and creativity.

By crossing these qualities with our issue, we move through it by pausing, understanding the issue, transforming it, and then preparing for action, and finally taking action.

Your issue can be working towards a personal or professional goal. However, the course is designed in such a way that you can also bring a different topic each week to your Focusing, and concentrate on building your 8Cs which help you live as your Self more often.

highlights logo TIFI events logo Marty Cohen
Focusing on the Focuser adds another dimension of depth to the Focusing process. 

Focusing on the way a person focuses is an approach to discerning underlying patterns that keep the transformative possibilities of felt-shift within an unnecessarily restricted range. When deep-seated patterns are more consciously felt, they become raw material for a greater artistry of self-sculpting. This opens the way for further innovations we will begin to explore about bringing variations of Focusing into ever-expanding recesses and dimensions of the being. 

While at the University of Chicago, Marty and Gendlin became Focusing partners, alternating doing Focusing sessions with each other every week. In this Highlight, Marty will share some anecdotes from his time with Gendlin, as well as exercises based on the ramifications of how he and Gendlin Focused together. There will also be time for questions and reciprocal learning opportunities.

Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful, though all are welcome to attend.

THE PRACTICE OF FOCUSING-ORIENTED RELATIONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY with LYNN PRESTON  A study group exploring how Focusing and relational perspectives can deepen and empower therapeutic relationships.   The Therapeutic “US”
Gendlin says our primary job as therapists is to “BE THE INTERACTION” that makes change possible. I have pondered the implications and applications of this statement for many years. Now, amid global uncertainty and upheaval, this radical injunction takes on new meaning, complexity and challenge. What is this way of being that has the power to ignite transformation, even in times of stress?
 
In this module, we will enter the realm of the “US,” finding respite in the understanding that we are fundamentally and inextricably interconnected--WE ARE INTERACTION! We will explore both the ideas and skills of being the healing interaction and empowering the forces of connectedness and forward movement.

Amona Buechler Focusing Trainer NVC meets Focusing
We will briefly touch on and experiment with some basic aspects of Nonviolent Communication, a systematic pathway for recognizing and communicating our feelings, needs, and wishes (in a conflict situation). Combined with the Focusing way of aimless inner listening into what’s initially vague and fuzzy, the NVC process for fruitful communication attains a greater depth.

This practice can release us from stuck places in which both parties might not have felt heard and respected. Instead of pointing fingers, at others in blame, or at ourselves causing shame, this conscious form of communication - clear, honest, and warmhearted - can magically open doors for meeting everybody's needs.

This reflection offered as part of Lynn Preston's group "help for Helpers"

At times when this happens, you might know that this inner activation is counter-productive and out of place somehow, but how to find your way to a more relaxed, easy-going state of being?

After accidents, certain neurological illnesses, or emotionally challenging incidences, the autonomic nervous system can get stuck in repetitive patterns that challenge our health, well-being, sense of safety and connection, and our creative potential.
We can invite and gradually build new patterns in our autonomic nervous system and brain. In doing so, we change our spontaneous physical, emotional and mental responses to life's occurrences.

Experiential Workshop / Expert Roundtable 'Where are You going, if You don't know, who You are?'
Our attempt is to provide a wider view of psychotherapy and of how personal development might be supported, beyond schools and techniques. In this frame we would like to present Gene Gendlin's murky edge as a very basic reference point, which addresses a core principle in psychotherapyt. Gendlin’s stance shall be demonstrated with the following quotation:
" I want to start with the most important thing I have to say: The essence​ of working with another person is to be present as a living being. And that​ is lucky, because if we had to be smart, or good, or mature, or wise, then​ we would probably be in trouble. But, what matters is not that. What​ matters is to be a human being with another human being, to recognize the other person as another being in there. Even if it is a cat or a bird, if​ you are trying to help a wounded bird, the first thing you have to know is​ that there is somebody in there, and that you have to wait for that​ "person," that being in there, to be in contact with you. That seems to me​ to be the most important thing. So, when I sit down with someone, I take my​ troubles and feelings and I put them over here, on one side, close, because​ I might need them. I might want to go in there and see something. And I​ take all the things that I have learnt—client-centered therapy, reflection,​ focusing, Gestalt, psychoanalytic concepts and everything else (I wish I​ had even more)—and I put them over here, on my other side, close. Then I am​ just here, with my eyes, and there is this other being. If they happen to​ look into my eyes, they will see that I am just a shaky being. I have to​ tolerate that. They may not look. But if they do, they will see that. They​ will see the slightly shy, slightly withdrawing, insecure existence that I​ am, I have learnt that that is O.K. I do not need to be emotionally secure​ and firmly present. I just need to be present. There are no qualifications for the kind of person I must be. What is wanted for the big therapy​ process, the big development process is a person who will be present. And​ so I have gradually become convinced that even I can be that. Even though I​ have my doubts when I am by myself, in some objective sense I know I am a
person"

"For us prayer is being responsive to the unfolding of the felt-sense as a Carrying Forward of the Larger System."

The Art of Prayer (AoP) is a regenerative learning approach exploring a core component of our shared human existence - our natural capacity for prayer. It is a framework of practices, in which people from all walks of life and traditions, religious and secular, prayers and non-prayers - are invited to reconnect and rediscover gateways into the field of prayer.

The practice of AoP forms a complementary aspect of POF - Prayer Oriented Focusing - in which Focusing practices are integrated into an embodied, living model for existence.

In this workshop we will: Introduce the approach as developed in Shakio Institute; Practice movements of AoP; Open space for questions and discussion; Share details concerning upcoming learning opportunities.

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

This presentation includes a brief overview of FOAT with an experiential exercise on the “Focusing Attitude.” The exercise teaches how to be curious and “friendly” to our inner experience; and the basic step of FOAT– how to access a felt sense, symbolize it as an image, gesture, sound, word, or phrase– and express it through the arts. This FOAT exercise is a self-care practice for practitioners that can also be applied to working with others.

Encuentro ¿Quieres conocer Focusing?. Mentxu Martín-Aragón y Josep Santacreu
Daremos una visión introductoria de ¿qué es Focusing? con algún ejercicio experiencial.

Focusing nos conecta con nuestra vivencia corporal y nos ayuda a lidiar con nuestras emociones no deseadas para encontrar más paz interna y mayor vitalidad.

Ante a las emociones no deseadas e incomodas como incertidumbre, ansiedad, frustración, miedo, ira, tristeza…. intentamos evitarlas, otras nos peleamos con ellas pero parece que nada funciona para que esto cambie.

Focusing es una guía interna que nos ayuda a acoger y escuchar amorosamente todas estas vivencias para transformarlas.

What does it mean to GUIDE someone else in ways that bring life forward movement? This one-year course is for those wanting to dive deep into the intricacies of one-to-one relationships. This community is for those who often find themselves in situations of facilitating change for others, individuals and groups. It’s a great option for those who are looking for a community-based path toward certification, for those who do not need certification, and also works well if you are already certified or possibly alongside another certification program.

This Learning Community begins as a year-long program meeting twenty times every other week for 1.5 hours. We can choose to continue with regular gatherings providing ongoing support for your path of bringing Focusing into the world. This course/community can be used as a pathway to certification as a Focusing Professional with TIFI.

Fall 2022 will meet on Sundays, 11am – 12:30pm ET, New York time, beginning Sept 11.

Sometimes, trauma makes us feel unsafe to bring our awareness into our bodies. Felt sensing and our sense of connection with our resources offers us the capacity to safely connect with ourselves and our life issues without re-experiencing trauma.

In this experiential workshop we will understand in a simple way how trauma works in our human systems. We will learn ways to connect with our bodies, without focusing on the internal bodily experiences. We will also learn how to always stay in charge of our own process, while we befriend ourselves in a safe way at a pace that feels just right.

Then we separate into pairs or triads to Focus, and come back together at the end for a time of closing.

Focusers of all levels of experience are welcome.

A picture of Yehudit First
Social Oriented Focusing (SOF) opens a space where delicate issues of human relationships can be met when interacting with each other. By being fully present, we can explore the movement in us and between us while simultaneously connecting to ourselves and the other through the felt .sense conscious body.

SOF is a modality that only exists in relationship with others - birthed in relational space, helping us to stay "home" in ourselves while in the presence of others. Over time, SOF generates the courage to be in relationship while remaining stably anchored inside.  I warmly invite you to explore the movement in us and between us, experiencing SOF in an intimate, enabling and safe space.

Annette Dubreuil
Focusing Teacher Annette Dubreuil will share the various ways that felt sense body cards can be used to record our embodied experiences. This includes recording the felt sense that emerges in an individual Focusing or meditation session, or recording parts or qualities of ourselves. Once a part is identified, we can see where it lives in our autonomic nervous system and what role it plays. Noticing these aspects help us classify the parts according to Polyvagal Theory, or other classification systems like Internal Family Systems. One can then create a map of one's nervous system or a timeline of one's life to tell your life story. The body cards also help us be more aware of when we are starting to shift neurophysiological states in real life, allowing us to call on our daily practices to self-regulate in the moment, including calling on some quality of Self energy (for example one of the 8Cs of Self-Leadership). Examples of body cards, nervous system mapping and a timeline will be shared. Finally, a Focusing exercise will be guided so you can better get to know one of your qualities of Self.

FOAT Ann Weiser Cornell
Ann will tell the story of meeting and learning Focusing from Gene Gendlin 50 years ago, when she was 22— and how Gene encouraged her to develop her own ideas about teaching Focusing, saying “Keep going!” It’s a part of Gene’s philosophy that the only way to be true to an idea or a method is to bring it through your own body and make it your own. After, Ann will share about the development of Inner Relationship Focusing, and how it grew from seeds planted while she was assisting Gene with his first Focusing workshops.

Inner Relationship Focusing (IRF) is an approach to Focusing based on cultivating an inner state of calm, curious acceptance toward all aspects of the self, including stressful and judgmental thoughts and all sorts of emotions and body sensations. An important principle is the “radical acceptance of everything,” the assumption that there are no enemies inside, and everything in us deserves and needs compassion for how it is trying to help us. Ann will present the main highlights of Inner Relationship Focusing along with an experiential exercise.

TIFI logo Donata Schoeller
Post Event registration available. through August 1st because the recordings will be available until August 15, 2022.

That Eugene Gendlin had a special relationship with the medieval German mystic Meister Eckhart was already evident from the fact that he had his sermons and treatises on that nearby shelf next to his work-armchair, where otherwise only his own manuscripts were waiting for further processing. Meister Eckhart‘s book was literally close at hand.

In this experiential workshop, In this workshop, Donata intends to curiously explore edges and bridges between Gendlin’s process-thinking and Meister Eckharts' approaches.

Registrants should have familiarity with Focusing, but do not need experience with philosophy.

Recording Note: Recordings will be made available to all registrants within 3 hours after each session for viewing prior to the next day (except in the case of unexpected technical difficulty). Breakout rooms are not recorded. All recordings will be available for registrants until August 15, 2022.

Highlights logo TIFI events logo Jeffrey Morrison
We have all been wounded. Our gifts are often buried below trauma, oppression, and shame. Even when we experience our deeper self it can feel re-wounding as we try to step into our biggest self. Trauma can isolate us and hold us back; it can also be something that initiates us to a deeper experience of Self and connection to others when we can find our gifts and share them with others.

Following a brief overview of trauma from a Focusing-Oriented Therapy (FOT) perspective, participants will be invited to explore their own life experiences that have been wounding and others that were enlivening, in search of their implicit gifts.

Therapists and other healing professionals will experience how Presence, guided inquiry, and Focusing can facilitate safety, regulation, and connection. This ultimately leads to unwinding wounds and finding gifts, strengths, and resources for growth.

While open to all, this class is ideal for skilled Focusers, therapists, and other healing professionals.

Carl Rogers at PCE Gendlin at PCE Leslie Ellis at PCE
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.

Felt Sense Polyvagal Model Jan Winhall
If you are curious about a new way of understanding addiction and other trauma responses this group is for you. Come and join us as we work with my new model based on my book Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model. Together we will explore how addictions act as ‘propellors’ that shift us back and forth from a flight/fight state to a numbing Fold state in a valiant attempt to survive. Through the polyvagal lens addictions are appreciated as adaptive responses in maladaptive environments. They help us in the short term, hurt us in the long term, and we can’t stop doing them.

Focusing Highlights Heidi Fischbach
We want to be present, especially with people and in situations that matter to us. And yet, being present in a relaxed way can feel challenging.

In this webinar, we will explore “relaxed presence” through a lens that combines Focusing/Felt Sensing with Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal theory of the nervous system.

“Relaxed Presence” will have psychoeducational and experiential components.

This class is intended for anyone interested in Focusing/Felt Sensing (whether seasoned practitioner or newbie) who is also curious about how the state of their nervous systems—seen through the Polyvagal Theory lens—impacts their capacity to be in relaxed presence.

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.

Setting boundaries is complex and likely to bring up a lot of mixed feelings! In this free mini-course, we'll address three specific issues that can come up with boundaries, including:

- Learning how to tell if your needs are getting pushed aside (which often happens when you say yes but mean no)
- Discovering what a healthy boundary looks like and how simple they can be (something you probably didn’t learn growing up)
- Understanding what you’re saying yes to when you say no (and why this tip helps you communicate better with the people in your life)
- Plus, we'll talk about what might be going on inside when someone says no to you.

No matter how challenging healthy boundaries might feel today…
You can get practical help that brings immediate relief.

Focusing Highlights Jocelyn Jacks Kahn
Realization Process (RP) is a spiritual path of awakening to one’s fundamental nature through deep contact with the body. Being fully in the physical body provides a healthy, natural boundary between oneself and the world – While at the same time, it provides maximum contact with the environment.
 
One can start to release the artificial self-protective contractions that succeed mostly in cutting off full contact with oneself and one’s environment. Of course, this is immediately practical and useful from a Focusing point of view! 
 
Jocelyn has been an Inner Relationship and Wholebody Focusing trainer and guide for 12 years who has been using mini-RP practices to help clients (and herself) come fully into their bodies at the beginning of a Focusing session. Most of the clients she works with are already Focusing and/or engaged in practices like Somatic Experiencing. Yet, they are often surprised at the new depth in their felt sensing capacity. She invites you to join her in exploring a few RP practices particularly relevant to Focusing partnership.

This webinar is most suitable for anyone who has had some experience in Focusing partnership, though all are welcome to attend.

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.

What exactly is the Felt Sense, and how does it relate to Polyvagal theory? Therapists are hearing a lot about the Felt Sense these days. We invite you to come and learn more about it from some of our seasoned Focusing Oriented Therapists—Jan Winhall, Leslie Ellis, Serge Prengel and Jeffrey Morrison— who learned about it directly from the creator of the term Felt sense, Eugene Gendlin.

Together we will explore the embodied nature of felt sensing, how and why to bring it into your therapy with trauma and addicted clients. And we will show you the connections with polyvagal theory as we discuss The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model. Focusing Trainer Annette Dubreuil will outline the Focusing Steps, and the power of Focusing Partnerships as a way to enhance co-regulation for your clients.

This 8 week course will provide an interactive and experiential opportunity to explore our own relationship to grief- going at our own pace and only where our beautiful, tough, tender, strong and broken hearts are wanting to go, including a full turning away if that is what the felt sense wants. We will use tools that allow the felt sense to express itself through writing, movement and making marks on the page along with more standard Focusing practices to allow for a richer and more nuanced exploration than words alone will allow. Care will be taken in each session to create a safe container so that we can relax and be together in whatever ways feel just right at the time.

Naty Calviño. Certified Focusing Trainer, Coordinator-in-Training, Focusing Oriented Counselor, Yogatherapist
This is part of an ongoing group, that you can join any time, and just do separate workshops for a month or continue with the group. You can also choose to come to separate ones. (I suggest you do the 4 sessions, to have the complete process, but each one will also be a process in itself).
These next Thursdays in April we'll be sharing this topic: Overcoming limitations and finding our potential and creativity.
There will be different topics each month.
It is an invitation to meet, to pause, to listen to ourselves, to find that "more" to our feelings and emotions, to give space, acceptance and friendliness to whatever comes,  to find that inner connection, and grow in love and compassion towards ourselves, others and our environment...To find and develop our own uniqueness and potential, and be able to move forward in fresh, new ways...

"People find richness in each other as they open up in Focusing and listening" Gendlin

We will be meeting once a week for 1 hour and a half, and you can join any time. 

It's open for everybody, whether you have some, a lot or no experience in Focusing, whether you are already using Focusing for yourself or in your work with other people in whatever area, this is going to enrich your own life and help you listen to others in a deeply embodied way, knowing that Wisdom and the capacity for healing and growth is in our bodies.

Thursdays from 5.30 pm to 7 pm (Eastern Time) in April.

TAE for Clinicians
Eugene Gendlin’s PHILOSOPHY OF THE IMPLICIT FOR THERAPISTS
with LYNN PRESTON
A study group exploring how Focusing and relational perspectives can deepen and empower therapeutic relationships.
We have been exploring the philosophical doorways into how Gendlin’s new world of process thinking transforms the work of psychotherapy. In this module, we will use TAE (Thinking At the Edge) practices to become more at home in making the theory of Focusing-Oriented Therapy a base from which to think creatively about our participation in therapeutic relationships. Felt sense thinking enables us to gain confidence in the dance of thinking “for ourselves” but not “by ourselves.”
Online

Focusing Highlights Mary Jennings
What if you were to find some simple doorways into what Gendlin calls the ‘implicit intricacy’… the ‘more’… so that you could say more of what you mean with greater clarity and creativity?

Gendlin developed ‘certain genuine steps’– in Focusing and in Thinking at the Edge (TAE) – and from these steps emerge simple practices you can use in your everyday life.

The approach here is to take some of the practices Gendlin developed for more formal practices such as theory or concept development and use them for specific interests. When you make these practices your own, they can support you in many ways.

In this webinar, we will do exercises together, and we will also dip into some pieces from writers, poets & artists to see how they work with the implicit intricacy — you can work in this way too!

Participants should have some experience of Focusing, felt sensing and listening, though all are welcome to attend. You may be curious about using felt-sensing in new ways, and having some fun along the way.

Setting boundaries is complex and likely to bring up a lot of mixed feelings! In this free mini-course, we'll address three specific issues that can come up with boundaries, including:

- Learning how to tell if your needs are getting pushed aside (which often happens when you say yes but mean no)

- Discovering what a healthy boundary looks like and how simple they can be (something you probably didn’t learn growing up)

- Understanding what you’re saying yes to when you say no (and why this tip helps you communicate better with the people in your life)

- Plus, we'll talk about what might be going on inside when someone says no to you.

No matter how challenging healthy boundaries might feel today…
You can get practical help that brings immediate relief.

PLEASE NOTE: This 2-session workshop began on March 9 but you may still join. You will have access to the recording of the first session after you register and both recordings will be available for one month after the workshop concludes.

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.

Social Oriented Focusing (SOF) teaches us to untie the KNOTS and NOTS that interfere with relating to others, enabling us to overcome blocks, fears, and automatic behaviors.

This two-part workshop will include presentations, guided experiences, and time for sharing and questions.

All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful.

Prayer Oriented Focusing (POF) opens new pathways into what we call ‘prayer consciousness’ as well as novel insights into the focusing process; insights that emerged from Gendlin’s philosophy and - to our surprise - from his interest during his final years with the connection between human beings and what he termed The Larger System.

The aim of Prayer Oriented Focusing (POF) is to support the Focuser’s essential life processes, and to reformulate and refresh pathways into the intimate experience of being in the world.

This workshop is intended for those already familiar with Focusing though all are welcome to attend. Attending the workshop live is encouraged as there will be exercises in breakout rooms, though all registrants will receive a link to the recording afterwards.

Evelyn Fendler-Lee with a cup of coffee
Last year, I started the format of Coffee with Gendlin. The basic idea is to explore specific concepts of Gendlin's philosophy in a pleasant atmosphere and apply them experientially.

This year's theme is "Naked Saying and Close Listening."

As uncomfortable as the word "naked" might make us, we all have a longing to be original and natural.
With naked saying and close listening, we will explore how to say what we mean, free ourselves from constraints of language forms, and find ways to trust our inner voices.
Listening to what your inner voice has to say will bring you closer to yourself.

I am very excited to go on this gentle and deep journey with you.
Early Bird Fee ends February 15!

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.

February 21 to April 11, 2022, Mondays

After the first two levels of my level 1 to 5 Focusing Skills course, you will be able to have a Focusing partnership with others who have also learned the basics of Focusing.

In level 1 & 2 you will be offered a lot of new material to experiment with. This might feel technical or artificial at times. For you to begin to flow with Focusing process naturally and intuitively needs practice. With time, you can inwardly relax, both as a Focuser and as  listener, which is the foundation for a deeply meaningful process to occur. Therefore, I highly recommend joining the entire level 1-5 course until September 12, 2022.

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.

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).

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.

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."

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.

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.

Not feeling good about yourself can be like living under a dark cloud that casts a gloomy shadow on whatever you say, do, think, feel… And that makes life harder than it has to be.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can learn how to handle emotional triggers, difficult habits, and inner critics in a way that leaves you feeling better about yourself. Let me help you get started (and share what you can do to keep going!).

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.

Social Oriented Focusing (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 webinar, we shall take a two-stage journey: Stage 1: From shades of aloneness to shades of togetherness; and Stage 2: From I to we without losing our boundaries.

There will be a presentation, guided experiences, and time for sharing and questions.

All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful but is not required.

Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ Jan Winhall, Certifying Coordinator & FOT Annette Dubreuil, Certified Focusing Professional & MBA
As we move through these uneasy times our bodies search for ways to soothe. Old habits that helped us in the past may reemerge. New habits may begin to form. How do we feel about these self soothing behaviours? Are they good? Are they bad? Are they ugly? When does a habit become an addiction? How can we help ourselves to develop a practice that calms us down, soothing our nervous system?

The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ for working with trauma and addiction provides us with answers to these questions. Through daily practices and an embodied process of Focusing, we learn to regulate our autonomic nervous system. Healing and restorative habits evolve over time—one felt shift at a time—as we come together in community with safety and respect.

Each week, we will visit a different quality of Self-leadership, to build our inner resources for self-regulation. There are 8Cs of Self-leadership, one for each week: calm, curiosity, clarity, creativity, compassion, confidence, courage and connection.

By flocking together in community, we can use the good to heal our trauma and release the bad and ugly ‘ways.’

Gene's Birthday Party!
Last year we gathered on Dec. 26th to celebrate Gene Gendlin’s birthday, which falls on Christmas Day. It was a deeply meaningful and connecting experience for many of us—one that sustained us throughout the year. There was a feeling of Gene’s presence in the midst of us, warming our hearts and enlivening our minds, helping us to remember the “BIG SYSTEM” during the bleak isolation of COVID winter. Those of us who knew Gene heard stories that we had never heard before and experienced surprising new facets of this incredibly multi-dimensional man. Those of us who did not know Gene personally contributed their ways of knowing Gene and feasted on the memories of those who did.

This year we want to gather online on Monday, Dec. 27th for another Gene Birthday Party to cherish his vibrant living presence. We want to experience ourselves as the interaction that carries forward his revolutionary way of thinking and being. We look forward to being together in this richly creative, flourishing community and seeing what we make in our Focusing conversation.

Journaling ist ein Bereich der Reflexion, des Erinnerns, des Neu- und Wiederkombinierens, der Revision, eine lebendige Methode, um von Unordnung zu Klarheit zu gelangen, ein Kanal zum Hinterfragen und Verbinden. Als solches öffnet das Journaling einen Raum, um sich selbst zu nähern und neue Sichtweisen zu ermöglichen – was das Papier zu einem perfekten Ort für ein Focusing macht.

A 'hot potato' is an issue that most people don’t want to talk about. It can involve unpleasant or even dangerous consequences for anyone dealing with it.

In a world of growing uncertainty, it is not surprising that our conversations and our thinking, are becoming increasingly polarized. It is becoming more difficult to hold civil conversations—or conversations at all—around ‘hot potato’ topics.

In this webinar, we will use Focusing to unravel some of the complexity for ourselves, for others, and around the issue itself.

All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful but is not required.

Le Focusing relationnel met une attention toute particulière sur la relation à soie, à l’autre, dans un groupe ou une communauté. Il a comme fondement, la bienveillance envers soi et envers les autres, la pause, la présence et l’accès au ressenti. Il est basé sur la croyance que le Focusing est un langage universel, car tous les humains peuvent ressentir, guider leur vie et leurs actions et créé à partir de ce qu’ils ressentent. (source: Extraits du cahier de formation DFQ 2016)

Cette formation en petit groupe permet d'acquérir les bases pour pratiquer le Focusing en partenariat et aussi de l'intégrer dans son quotidien.

Ann Weiser Cornell
As life starts to expand again, it might seem like everything is getting easier. And, in some ways, that's true. Yet, there are also challenges (and stressors) you probably haven't had to face for a long time. One thing is for sure, we are in times of unprecedented change (at least in our lifetimes) and that's a hard place to be.

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

My 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.

This is our last webinar in 2021. We'll be back next year!

The next online QF training workshop on Zoom will be on Nov 14th 2021.

This training workshop will train participants in the understanding and use of the Alexander Technique. Focusing and Internal Family Systems and the theory and practice of working with Parts within the circle of the whole. Working with Energetic Connection, both externally in personal relationships, in nature and internally leads to healing of conflicted parts. This then allows a clearing of blockages so that energy can flow freely and effortlessly into action. Creating the future that you want, right now, by living beyond the constrictions of space and time.

By looking at the SPECT brain scan images of a Focusing client we can gain an understanding of basic Neuroscience and see  how Quantum Focusing can lead to "neuroplasticity" or long-term change.

This is one complete workshop.  

Times: Sunday 9.00 am – 12.00 noon and 1.00 pm – 4.00 pm New York (EDT) -3 Hrs to Los Angeles so,
Sunday 6.00 am – 9.00 am and 10.00 am – 1.00 pm Los Angeles Sunday 3.00 pm – 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm – 10.00 pm Rome ( CEST)

Cost: $150 (waged), $75 (low income), $25 (no regular income).

All proceeds will go to the Focusing Neuroscience Research Fund to pay for further SPECT scans in California.

Akira Ikemi, Ph.D.
Dr. Akira Ikemi first met Gene Gendlin in 1979, then became a graduate student at the University of Chicago where Gene was a professor. The first part of this workshop will begin with Akira Ikemi’s personal reflections about what was inspiring about Gene. Listening to stories like these helps to illuminate and carry forward deeper understandings of the living roots of Focusing and its philosophy— which continues to unfold in new ways today.

Akira Ikemi will then share about the influences of Wilhelm Dilthey’s hermeneutics on Focusing, a method which Gendlin developed. After, Akira Ikemi will lead a Focusing exercise that he created— Crossing with Animals— which helps to teach two concepts of Gene’s philosophy, Experiencing and Crossing. Participants will then learn to apply the principles of Experiencing and Crossing to art images or expressions. This will also enrich the understanding and practice of Focusing-Oriented Expressive Arts.

Beatrice Blake, teacher of Thinking at the Edge
Thinking at the Edge grounds your ideas in your lived experience.

For example:

Is there something that you’d like to do or write about but you lack the confidence to begin? Thinking at the Edge helps you sense into the “more” behind your ideas so that you can write and act from what you know.

Do you long to contribute to the world from the richness of the insights life has given you? With Thinking at the Edge, you delve into your own experience so that your new direction follows from of all you have lived.

Maybe you need clarity and next steps about a persistent problem or a complex issue. With Thinking at the Edge you can find the unique gifts within the challenges you face.

Evelyn Fendler-Lee. The course integrates many ideas I've developed during the last ten years of teaching Thinking at the Edge and 'Philosophy-into-Practice' classes, and while I was applying TAE in business for innovation and knowledge transfer in teams.
This course integrates the two methods, Focusing and TAE, and combines personal growth and creative deep thinking. It brings in more of Gendlin's philosophy and provides applications of specific thought-movements. With Thetaland®--The Game of Inquiry thinking with the felt sense becomes flexible, accessible, and playful.

"Thought-Movements with the Felt Sense" is for you when you already have some experience in Focusing and Focusing partnership and are interested to learn more about thinking from a felt sense.
Or you are seeking a certification path that includes Focusing, TAE, and other practices coming from Gendlin’s philosophy.
If you are already certified, you might want to expand your experience and knowledge about the philosophical background of Focusing and TAE and learn more felt-sensing applications.

The FORCE team is gearing up for our third ONLINE COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT TRAINING PROJECT starting Oct. 6th. This innovative learning experience is a response to the current urgent need for real conversation across differences. It offers a way to explore the question: Can the ideas and skills of Eugene Gendlin’s Focusing help us as individuals and communities to heal our polarizations and disconnections? Can Focusing be the yeast that enables the bread of genuine relating to rise? This project is a passionate call designed to cultivate visionary leadership in facilitating community creativity, cohesion and resilience.

The training is a “pay it forward” project based on the conviction that participants will bring their increased awareness and skills to community life.

NOTE: Registrants will benefit from having attended or viewed the Highlight recording prior to the workshop. If you did not previously register for the Highlight, you may register for the Post-Highlight recording by emailing [email protected]

There are many varieties of traditional prayer. The act of pray-ing expands the meaning of being human, of being fully human. 

In this workshop we will explore and develop a new kind of prayer consciousness:  a lucid prayer movement that transforms our life experience - free of theological underpinnings. 

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

Focusing Highlights International logo Robert Lee
**This International Focusing Highlight will be offered in English with simultaneous translation into German and Mandarin**

Changing the Unchangeable (aka Macroshifting) invites one to engage with something one has tried to change (e.g. a persistent relationship or career problem) but has failed at changing. If, given one’s other accomplishments, it is unclear why someone has failed, it is probably a macro. According to Robert, macros are what change with difficulty. Macros also go further into who one is, and further out into society. . .

(Eine Focusing-Architektur um das Unveränderliche zu verändern)
„Changing the Unchangeable“ (auch Macroshifting genannt) lädt dazu ein, sich mit etwas zu befassen, das man ändern möchte (z. B. ein hartnäckiges Beziehungs- oder Karriereproblem), an dem man jedoch bislang gescheitert ist. Bleibt es trotz vielfältiger Bemühungen unklar, warum eine gewünschte Veränderung nicht gelingen möchte, handelt es sich wahrscheinlich um ein Macro. Laut Robert ist ein Macro etwas, das sich schwer ändern lässt. Macros reichen tief in die eigene Persönlichkeit und zugleich auch tief in die Gesellschaft hinein. . .

(改变不可能的聚焦建构)
改变不可能(或称为宏转化)邀请那些想要试图改变什么(比如一段持久的关系或者职场生涯问题)但是却无力改变的人,也许,即使在其他方面小有成就,但是却并不清楚为什么会失败,这种情况可能就是一个宏。按照罗伯特的理论,宏是那些很难改变的事物,宏可能会深入了解自己是谁并进一步深入了解社会…

Not feeling good about yourself can be like living under a dark cloud that casts a gloomy shadow on whatever you say, do, think, feel… And that makes life harder than it has to be.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can learn how to handle emotional triggers, difficult habits, and inner critics in a way that leaves you feeling better about yourself. Let me help you get started (and share what you can do to keep going!).

Throughout his life - Gendlin, the philosopher of ‘being human’ - continuously investigated the processes that enabled life to move forward and evolve.

We were excited to discover that in his last years Gendlin explored the intricate connections between humans and the larger system, a discovery that inspired our path of on-going crossing between Focusing and prayer. 

In this webinar we will: Explore what happens when we “Clear the space” for the word “prayer”; Become inspired by relevant texts of Gendlin's philosophy when you read them with a fresh perspective; Learn and experience the new kind of model of “Prayer for Focusers” we developed.

There will also be time for questions and comments from participants. This webinar is intended for those already familiar with Focusing though all are welcome to attend.

What might our human world look like if we were to organise it with the felt sense in mind?

We can make the felt sense an organising principle for everyone in responding to the world around us in a reflective manner. We can listen to it in facing our collective challenges, including climate change and other threats to our future.

In this Highlight webinar Peter will present a neuroscience perspective on the felt sense as the expression of one half of the brain – the right hemisphere – and he will suggest some features of this organising principle.

The illustrated presentation will be followed by discussion so that participants have the opportunity to contribute their own thoughts on the subject.

All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful, but is not required.

This short course will introduce you to my three favourite experiential dreamwork methods: focusing, gestalt and active imagination. You will learn basic and important ways to use these methods to engage with dreams and also to help treat nightmares, a critical skill for any clinician working with clients who suffer from depression or the effects of trauma.

The 3-hour live online class will be divided into the follow sections:
- Overview of embodied experiential dreamwork practice
- Techniques to weave focusing (Gendlin), Gestalt therapy (Perls) and active imagination (Jung) together for a safe, gentle and deeply experiential approach to any dream
- Application, including demos and exercises for working with the dreams and nightmares in a safe, engaging and deeply experiential way

As life starts to expand again, it might seem like everything is getting easier. And, in some ways, that's true. Yet, there are also challenges (and stressors) you probably haven't had to face for a long time. One thing is for sure, we are in times of unprecedented change (at least in our lifetimes) and that's a hard place to be.

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

My 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.

Note: This workshop has concluded, however, Post-Workshop Registration is now open. All registrants will have access to course materials and recordings from July 9-October 15, 2021.

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).

As we move beyond midsummer, we are surrounded by the aliveness and bounty of Nature. We tend the land and provide the best conditions for everything to grow, but most of the process of growth goes on quietly, out of sight, visible only through its fruits.

In this gathering, you are invited to give your body the best conditions you can for awakening more fully to its own aliveness, for stepping back and sensing into the underlying energy field of spacious, life-giving Presence that animates and heals us.

Ann Weiser Cornell
As life starts to expand again, it might seem like everything is getting easier. And, in some ways, that's true. Yet, there are also challenges (and stressors) you probably haven't had to face for a long time. One thing is for sure, we are in times of unprecedented change (at least in our lifetimes) and that's a hard place to be.

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

My 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.

The training includes 8 weekly class sessions, an introductory 1-1 Guided Focusing Session with the Trainer, a 136 page Manual, homework partnerships and email support between classes.

With ample personal attention in a small group setting (maximum 8 participants), you’ll gain a fundamental understanding of Focusing. You'll also acquire the skills and ability to use this remarkable process in your life, both by yourself and with a partner.

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!

An online, interactive workshop facilitated by Serge Prengel. This offering will be held in meeting format so that all participants can see the presenter and each other.

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 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)

Inner critics can be crushing, right? From paralyzing you with perfectionism to hurling shame-inducing words your way, they know how to hurt you.

It might surprise you to hear that inner critics actually have good intentions. They’re really just trying to save your life (I promise!). They mean well. But they’re afraid of what might happen if you ____. And the only way those voices know how to defend you leaves you feeling terrible.

Join me for Finding Freedom From Inner Critics and find a new way to relate to the negative, shaming voice in your head.

Esta serie brinda un espacio para conectar miembros hispanohablantes del Instituto Internacional de Focusing (TIFI).

Cada Cafecito tiene a un nuevo entrevistado quien compartirá su conocimiento sobre algún tema en especial con la comunidad hispanohablante.
