Annette Dubreuil Changes Group - circle of chairs
**We meet twice per month. In September, we're experimenting with both 1 and 1.5 hour groups.**

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.

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.

highlights logo Peter Afford
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.

Dr. Leslie Ellis
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).

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.

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.

During these times when the world and our place in it might feel uncertain, Focusing offers you a straight-forward way to find inner peace and meaning through connecting more deeply with yourself and each other.

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!

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.

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.

Coffee with Gendlin
How to Bring More of Gendlin's Philosophy into Practice?
Gendlin's work is about how to think with the implicit. He provides a language to talk about it, and he demonstrates how to think with the implicit in talking about it.
Sitting in my comfortable chair with a cup of morning coffee and enjoying reading Gendlin, I often thought about how to harvest more of his work.
I am very excited to offer this new format of Coffee Talks and to share with you some ideas about crossing and how it can be applied in your private and professional life.

Writing can be a powerful vehicle of embodied wisdom if we give the process time to unfold, using our Focusing Practice. We will explore language which forms from implicit experiencing. Through evocative writing practices, words are invited to come from Felt Sense memories. 

Ann will be sharing some simple tools you can use in your own writing practice, including experience from her own multi-chaptered writing journey. Participants will be guided through a writing prompt, and have time to write during the session. There will also be some time to ask questions.

This session is aimed at writers of all levels: anyone who can journal belongs here.

Seattle Focusing Institute Seattle Focusing Community
An embodied and relational approach to unwinding stress and trauma for therapists and healing professionals. Leads to certification if desired.

This Focusing training is not your typical continuing education for healing professionals! Instead of teaching you a technique to do to someone, Focusing training reveals a naturally occurring, innately powerful, self-healing process. Focusing is psychological, philosophical, and touches spiritual edges as it takes you deeply into your own experiencing.

A core value of this training is developing you – the healing professional – and how you incorporate your personal Focusing process into your healing practice with others. Join us. :)

Seattle Focusing Institute Jeffrey Morrison, MA, LMHC
In this introductory workshop (FOT-1: Learning How the Body Speaks and Listening so it Heals), you’ll begin to learn the basic steps of Focusing so that you can incorporate Focusing in your healing practice! I also offer a two-year Focusing Training Program that leads to certification for those interested.

Learn among a supportive community of therapists, healing professionals, and spiritual seekers. Join us. :)

Time for group and partner practice of different approaches

PART ONE - SPEAKING FROM YOUR BODILY KNOWING
Let yourself be surprised and inspired as your rich bodily-knowing unfolds. By connecting to your implicit knowing, you will find new, deeper and clearer meanings of a subject you choose. In our online training, we will gently guide you to the mysteries of Thinking at the Edge (TAE). Along with learning the 14 steps of TAE, you will experience the spirit of TAE through playful exercises. Our class consists of three parts, with eight classes each.
We welcome Focusers and non Focusers.
In part one - Speaking from your Bodily Knowing - we will guide you through the first five steps of TAE. You will find your own language by working with personal experiences that are relevant for your topic and by reflecting your own meaning of common words.

Beatrice Blake, Thinking at the Edge teacher
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 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.

Isabel Gascón. Coordinadora Nacional y Trainer Certificada por el Instituto de Internacional de Focusing. Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy. Tutora de la formación de este módulo desde 2009. Miembro de la Asociación de Psicoterapeutas Laureano Cuesta. ♥️ Escuchando a tu niño/a interior ♥️
El ser humano nace frágil, desvalido, incapaz de cubrir por sí mismo sus necesidades básicas necesarias para vivir y crecer. Necesita cuidados básicos imprescindibles, pero sobre todo necesita sentirse amado, protegido y respetado.

Esa pequeña persona depende de lo que reciba de su entorno, de los padres o cuidadores para que sus potencialidades se desplieguen de forma sana y completa.

Ocurre que, cuando la persona se hace mayor y va cumpliendo años, ese pequeño niño sigue estando con el adulto y sigue guardando en su interior el concepto que se forjó de sí mismo y de su valía personal en las experiencias vividas que formaron parte de muchos momentos de su infancia: esos mensajes y esas experiencias que le enseñaron cómo conseguir el amor de su padre y su madre, cómo relacionarse con los demás, cómo satisfacer sus necesidades.

Sin darse cuenta esos mandatos siguen condicionando la forma de sentir y de actuar del niño, del adolescente y sobre todo del adulto. Se refuerzan y confirman, o se sustituyen a lo largo también de los años de crecimiento y de las distintas experiencias que la niña o el adolescente tenga de su familia, profesores, compañeros, amigas… personas de referencia que le acompañen en su desarrollo.

No se trata en absoluto de juzgar cuidadores o personas de referencia que estuvieron a su lado en la infancia, porque que seguramente hicieron lo mejor que sabían hacer.

Aceptar primero que nuestro niño interior está ahí, más o menos presente, olvidado, rechazado… ¡es muy importante!

Ahora tú eres la única persona que puede cuidar y comprender a ese niño para atender tus emociones, tu visión de la vida y mejorar tu autoestima.

En este curso vamos a conocer y a explorar cómo está nuestro niño interior y de cuál es nuestra relación con él. Eso es lo que nos podrá permitir darle aquello que le pudo faltar cuando era niño, suplir las carencias de aceptación, confianza, comprensión y amor que pueden estar condicionando su manera de vivir.

Energy and consciousness in Quantum Focusing (QF) can transcend the limitations of time and space, leading to long-lasting change and healing of conflicted parts.

In this webinar, Alex will present brain scan images of a long-term Focusing client who suffered from constant anxiety and over-arousal of the nervous system. Alex will share how working with the complexity of this client’s trauma opened the door to new Focusing skills that would be needed to bring back a sense of “Self-agency”. 

There will be experiential guided group exercises and a short demonstration of Quantum Focusing as well as some time for questions and sharing from participants.

All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful but is not required. This class will be of particular interest to Focusers with an interest in Neuroscience, Brain Imaging and Quantum Focusing.

Focusing with Amona Buechler
透過澄心技法認證課,你將體驗如何藉由傾聽身體來獲取內在的智慧與直覺。並發展出友善且好奇的自我關係,運用同理的語言來支持接納與臨在。

你將學習到 如何成為一個絕佳的聆聽者,在朋友遭遇困難時能給予支持,讓溝通技巧更加細緻,並和他人建立深度連結。

「澄心」是一個如何引導改變,學習轉化的工具。並在深度轉化的過程中保持著安全。從困惑到明晰:學習如何與模糊待在一起,以有機的決策方式回應行動上的阻礙與內在衝突。從舊有習慣與受限的自我意象,通往喜悅的生命之流。

和身體在一起,而且是用澄心的方法在一起,可以讓你培養情緒智力,因而能夠與自己、他人帶來友愛的連結。

當你學習聆聽身體的智慧,你的手上就掌握了珍貴的工具,無需壓抑、也無需迷失在情緒中。

澄心是一個輕柔、靜心式的歷程。過程中,澄心者口語分享他的內在經歷,例如感知、意象、分為、情緒、及生活遭遇。陪伴者深度臨在,帶著同理聆聽,並回應給澄心者。

Join us in “Going Forward and Making it Count,” the third and final course of a learning to focus three-part study series. You must have some Focusing experience and previous Focusing education equal to the first two courses, “Introduction” and “Next Steps,” to join this small study group. Those who have not attended those classes but would like to attend this course may inquire about requisite private teaching sessions if needed before joining the course.

In this third and final segment of the course, you will gain a strong baseline for continuing Focusing on your own as well as going deeper with focusing partners. You will likely see an increase in shift opportunities as the study goes deeper. In addition, by completing this 3-part learning to Focus series, you will be better prepared to join a variety of Focusing programs offered through the Focusing community, including Focusing certification programs.

Laura Vaccaro, LCSW, FOT Amaryn Clare, CFT Changes Group
Please Join us on March 28, 2021, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST for our monthly Changes Group.

Changes is an opportunity to meet with others in the Focusing community and practice in partnerships. Groups are held monthly and are free of charge.
We welcome very experienced Focusers, as well as those with a basic competency who would like to expand their practice. If you plan to attend, please email us by the night before at [email protected] to receive a Zoom link.

During each meeting there will be an initial time for greeting and sharing , followed by an attunement and a short teaching or offering about some aspect of Focusing. Then we break out into Focusing partnerships to practice together. Afterwards, we return to the large group for group process, which can include sharing a felt sense, questions about the process in general and sharing a new learning or surprise that has come.

This month's Changes group will feature Sharli Turner, who will give a short presentation on the use of symbolization in focusing. (See below.)
Sharli is a writer and writing consultant who loves literature and philosophy and is fascinated with language, story, and the cyclical rhythms of time. The study and practice of Focusing has influenced her writing and her daily living since 1995 when she was first introduced to Eugene Gendlin’s work. She is currently exploring myths, archetypes, and symbols as guides to our inner journeys—they can help us see when we are lost in the endless labyrinth of a looping narrative, and they have the power to lead us to a fresh way forward.

We anticipate an exciting group and hope you will join us!

Focusing ist ein von Eugene Gendlin entwickelter, schlichter Prozess, der uns darin unterstützt, die uns innewohnenden Quellen reichen Wissens zu erschließen. Indem wir uns mit einem offenen urteilsfreien Gewahrsein dem körperlichen Erleben zuwenden und damit vertraut werden, kann sich der darin wohnende Wandlungsraum öffnen.

Jede/r kann diese nach Innen gerichtete ganzheitliche Aufmerksamkeit lernen und so eine neue Selbstwirksamkeit im Leben entdecken. In dieser Haltung können wir auch andere kompetent darin begleiten, innere Bewegungen zu erspüren und seelischen Prozessen dahinter Raum geben. Das hilft Blockaden zu lösen, wirkt heilsam und erlaubt uns, eine neue Form der Intimität in uns selbst, mit anderen und dem ganzen Leben zu entdecken.

Voraussetzung
Die Teilnahme an einem der beiden Einführungsseminare (31.10.-1.11.20 bzw. 16.-17.1.2021) gilt als Voraussetzung für die Teilnahme an der Fortbildung.

Seattle Focusing Institute Jeffrey Morrison, MA, LMHC
New to Focusing? Join me for this demo where I will guide you on an exploration of implicit knowing, accessing inner wisdom through a ‘felt sense'.

Focusing is a natural ability to tap into a deep personal understanding about any given situation and determine next steps that would feel right. It is direct access in the present moment to how a whole situation “feels” in our body and life.

In Focusing terms, a 'felt sense' is the doorway to self-understanding. Let me show you how to find it!

-
FOAT Laury Rappaport
We will begin with a centering exercise to ground ourselves and connect with the larger community. Next we will do a Focusing exercise to access a “source of strength”—letting a felt sense emerge from it. Through a user-friendly approach, we will find a way to express our felt sense into a creative expression—which might come as a color, shape, image, word, phrase, gesture or sound. We will also identify a small step to carry this inner strength into our daily life.

Rachel Hendron Vibrant Life Logo
This programme begins has three main phases, which build on and interrelate;

• A solid grounding in the steps of Focusing; using the felt sense to listening to oneself and the parts of self. apply these skills of listening to self to resonant guiding of a partner in dyads
• Focusing as a relational rather than individual practice, introducing polyvagal theory and ecotherapy / existential ‘life’ energy, self as nervous system and self as universe.
• Relating with both living systems through the process model (which point to right brain, connected to self, relating to the earth, other than humans and ancestors) and how to bring a Focusing awareness to where the unit model has been over extended to life-oriented processes (left brain, disconnected, traumatised, producing dominating, colonialist, patriarchal and supremacist institutions and systems), searching for a new way of being.

(Sydney, Australia: Monday, March 1, 2021 from 8:00am to 10:00am)

In this class we will be exploring one fresh form of Focusing practice in particular called 'Feeling the contraction as lovingness' and ways it contributes to what Gendlin called 'first person science'.

The webinar will include an overview of methods for extending the Focusing practice tradition, including letting Focusing sessions be templates for repeatable practices, crossing practices and practice traditions with each other, and working experimentally, inspired by theories (e.g. Gendlin's 'A Process Model').

This class is intended for any Focusing practitioner who would like to experiment with variations to Focusing practice, and anyone who is curious about ways Focusing can be used in experiential research. All are welcome to attend.

Alex Maunder
This is a 4 week course that looks at the fundamental question of how "Healing" or "Wholeness" arises. Focusers are very well aware of the dangers of becoming merged with a dominant part, which can often lead to feelings of emotional overwhelm and compulsive behaviour. An essential part of the process of healing is to create space and for the observing self to keep the right distance to the part - so that a felt shift can take place. I used to think that was it ! But now with the availability of modern brain scans of a Focusing client of mine I now realise that for "Complete Healing" to take place an extra step is needed....
Participate in this course to find out how Quantum Focusing enables an energetic connection to other alive and healthy parts in the body/mind that want to help but have not been listened to so far.

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

As a result of the many folks interested in the December Introductory Class and our commitment to maintain a small study group with individual attention, we have added this Introductory class to begin January 24, 2021. The class is deliberately kept small to ensure each participant ends with a complete understanding of the process and begins to experience the benefits of what Focusing can provide. Individual attention and sessions will be given to each participant by one or both teachers as well as assigned partnerships between class dates. Please email Laura or Amaryn on [email protected] for more information. See more details.

Please consider yourself to be warmly invited to our next monthly on-line Pause for Presence gathering on Saturday 16th January.

In our last gathering the image of the ocean floor emerged with a sense of its deep vibrantly alive stillness, unperturbed by but not separate from the wind-swept waves and cross-currents on its surface. This image speaks eloquently of the dimension of Presence that can be felt inside us as "an underlying energy field of living Presence", always alive, at peace and undisturbed by the waves of thoughts, emotions and physical discomforts you may experience on the surface.
The idea of these monthly 90-minutes gatherings is to come to rest in this underlying field of Presence - a sense of the aliveness felt within the body and around us as a nourishing Presence that holds and constantly resources us: to rest and be nourished by the aliveness of “just being”. Being together in this way creates a palpable energy field of group Presence which allows you to experience Presence in a much deeper way than if you were on your own.

All are welcome!

Focusing ist ein von Eugene Gendlin entwickelter, schlichter Prozess, der uns darin unterstützt, die uns innewohnenden Quellen reichen Wissens zu erschließen. Indem wir uns mit einem offenen urteilsfreien Gewahrsein dem körperlichen Erleben zuwenden und damit vertraut werden, kann sich der darin wohnende Wandlungsraum öffnen.

Jede/r kann diese nach Innen gerichtete ganzheitliche Aufmerksamkeit lernen und so eine neue Selbstwirksamkeit im Leben entdecken. In dieser Haltung können wir auch andere kompetent darin begleiten, innere Bewegungen zu erspüren und seelischen Prozessen dahinter Raum geben. Das hilft Blockaden zu lösen, wirkt heilsam und erlaubt uns, eine neue Form der Intimität in uns selbst, mit anderen und dem ganzen Leben zu entdecken.

Voraussetzung:
Die Teilnahme an einem der beiden Einführungsseminare gilt als Voraussetzung für die Teilnahme an der Fortbildung - Start März 2021-Jänner 2022. Die Einführungsseminare sind aber auch für all jene offen, die Focusing kennenlernen wollen.

An Invitation to Pause for Presence

“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. And when our souls lie down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about” - Rumi

In challenging times like these, it feels increasingly important to take time to experience a dimension in us that is not touched and affected by what is going on around and within us. This inner dimension does not disconnect us emotionally from what is happening but it allows us to rest and resource ourselves so that we can stay open and be more fully present to Life.

Rumi's poem above is an invitation to rest in this dimension - sometimes called “the underlying field of living Presence"– a sense of the aliveness felt within the body and around us as a nourishing Presence that holds and constantly resources us. The more often you make time and space to felt sense this energy field of Presence or Being, the more you activate it and the more it can emerge as a resource in your Focusing and daily life.

To "lie down in that grass" together with other people is what these 90-minutes long monthly on-line Pause for Presence gatherings are all about. After a brief guidance into Presence (for those who need it), we silently come to rest in “this underlying field of Presence”, letting ourselves “just be” There is also space for any sharing that wants to happen.

All are welcome!

Like Focusing, play is a way to discover our true selves, and connect with others in unexpected ways. In this webinar, we will explore what the intersection of mindful embodied attention and an improvisational attitude might look and feel like. We will blend Focusing with games and exercises adapted from the world of theatrical improvisation. Small group demonstrations will help illustrate this cross-pollination.

All are welcome to attend; no improvisation or Focusing experience is necessary.

Individual attention and sessions will be given to each participant by one or both teachers as well as assigned partnerships between most class dates. The cost is based on a sliding scale principle, normally $200, but interested individuals who cannot afford that amount should still apply.

Holidays can bring much stress due to the weight of layers of expectations for ourselves and others. Focusing can help us to re-weave connections to ourselves just as we are and to develop a welcoming relationship with whatever is arising in us just as it is in each moment.

In this two hour interactive Focusing workshop, we will co-create a safe space to bring ourselves as we truly are in this moment and reconnect to the aliveness in us that wants to be experienced and expressed just the way it is.  There will be both whole group and small breakout group opportunities to connect and practice together.  Whole group and individual and small group practice will help to re-weave connection to our inner compass.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS CLASS BEGAN NOVEMBER 2 BUT YOU MAY STILL REGISTER AND JOIN THIS CLASS IN PROGRESS. YOU WILL HAVE ACCESS TO RECORDINGS OF THE PREVIOUS CLASSES AFTER YOU REGISTER.

During the last 4 years of Gendlin's life, Dave Young had weekly conversations with Gene that started with this question: “So what’s alive in you?” The talks took place at the initiative of TIFI who asked David Young to conduct and transcribe conversations with Gendlin with the intent that they would be published.

In this 4-session series, we will meet each time for 90 minutes to read closely some of these "conversations", and to look into the new ideas embedded in them. More importantly, we will identify the subtle steps a great philosopher takes whilst slowly developing his thinking, and explore how these steps can help us develop the delicate fabric of our own further thinking.

All are welcome. This series will be of particular interest to those who have a willingness and ability to engage in a slow process of reading, with high concentration and sensitivity towards this almost “naked” text.

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

"Inward listening is a dialogue in which "I" and "what comes" both participate and change".…..In that dialogue I do not become less than in my usual ways of living. I become more than I was..... (Gendlin, 1985, The obedience pattern).
As Focusers we are used to use Language in a felt-sense oriented way: "I can sense 'it' in my chest", "something feels heavy in my throat". Is the 'Self' another content? How can we explore 'The Self' as a private process, with language as a public process?

How do we move from the language of the formation of the Felt sense, to the language of exploring the self as a non-content process?

How does the exploration of the 'Self' develop ways to "find-myself" more clearly and strongly "in" any group of people, relationship and situation?

"Obviously "the self" is at least as complex as what we find and see all the time. Why try for a simpler scheme? And why one scheme? .......Instead, let us also study the process of scheme-making, moving with many schemes". (Gendlin, 1984, Some notes on the self).

Join us! We're going to learn about why the physical connection to others is so integral to our wellbeing and why COVID-19 protocol leaves many of us sad, grumpy, irritable and even depressed.

Do not be caught in the same old circles... Expand ! Open up to new possibilities !
Complex Trauma leads to a disintegration of the sense of Self that makes normal functioning very difficult. Planning your life, relationships or even simple decision making becomes incredibly difficult because a solid sense of Self is missing. Powerful emotions such as guilt, shame and insecurity flood the field of awareness and valuable energy is wasted as conflicted inner parts fight each other to a standstill.
By using the most modern brain scanning technology I have been able to literally see how Quantum Focusing works to improve the the quality of my client's lives and also to understand how changes in the Quantum field of awareness can facilitate a harmonious healing of conflicted parts and this leads to an improvement in the client's life situation.

Matanel Weissman
How can we make a change in our unconscious, consciously?

How can we attract the right people and things to us?

How can we take our lives a step further even when the future does not function as safe ground?

A change in the body is a change in the cosmos — it is a change in the Forces attraction of the subconscious.

The body mediates between our awareness and the occurring. In Focusing, When we turn in with an issue or a question, a 'Felt Sense' forms. A 'Felt-sense' is all the external and personal relevant information, that the body crystallize to one concrete feeling that we can relate to directly. When we have all the relevant information, it becomes clear what is the next step in our life.

Focus-ing is based on the life-works of Carl Rogers and Eugene Gendlin in research in psychology and philosophy.

The facilitator, Matanel Weissman is a Certified focusing trainer of The International Focusing Institute. A Researcher in the philosophy of Gendlin. Also teaching assistant at the Technion academy in a TAE course, establishes focusing processes at Soroka Hospital and teaches focusing courses in Israel and on Zoom.

Focusing Highlights is a series of interactive, online pay-what-you-can classes.

In this class, participants will learn how a felt sense functions in a Quaker Meeting’s gathering circle.

You will also see how the Quakers modified their gathering circle to fit the needs of working with prison inmates through the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP), and how a felt sense can lead to change and transformations among inmates within and as a result of the workshops the New York Quakers have been facilitating since the 1970's.

There will also be some time for questions and comments from participants. All are welcome to attend. Some experience with Focusing and/or Gendlin’s Philosophy will be helpful but is not required. Material covered in the class is from Harbert’s new book titled A Quaker’s View Of Gendlin’s Philosophy.

Beth Mahler Maria Skoufas
A Two-Year Focusing Training with Beth Mahler and Maria Skoufas develops a deep sense of awareness
needed to care for ourselves while caring for others and the world around us. By delving deeply into
Focusing over a period of two years in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment we can greatly
enhance our potential for change, ethically and with integrity for generations to come. A consistent
group dynamic forms over time providing a protected space that allows the process to experientially
expand and deepen. It’s a personal journey that will result in growth and evolution of self and possibly
reveal the emerging teacher from within.

intentar decir o pensar cual es el problema, cual seria una solución posible. Pero, si solo nos mantenemos en silencio, viene por su cuenta Encuentros vivenciales, donde se brindar una introducción teórica, pero invitando a transitar el aprendizaje desde la propia experiencia y compartiendo con el grupo.
Focusing es un modo de conectar con nosotros mismos desde el cuerpo, sintonizando “de dentro hacia afuera".

Es una invitación a pensar sobre nosotros mismos, sintonizando con el “de dentro hacia afuera”.
En vez de intentar decir o pensar cual es el problema, cual es la respuesta, debemos mantenernos en silencio y atender la versión corporalmente sentida del problema.
Así es como al dejarla formase, un cierto desarrollo, una masa aperceptible moldea u crea todo lo que ves, lo que conoces – todo lo que sos!!! Entonces entendemos que es algo de un proceso-de-vida-posterior.

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.

Beatrice Blake, teacher of Thinking at the Edge
Thinking at the Edge (TAE) fertilizes your ideas by grounding them 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 in life follows from of all you have lived.

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

Ann Weiser Cornell
Are you faced with a changed world you never planned for?

It’s natural to be stunned by a loss, and unable to move forward.
It could be the loss of a person, or of a job, or of a whole way of life.

Big change, as well as big loss, can leave you feeling confused and anchorless.

How do you find your way when you’ve lost all your familiar landmarks? You still have a reliable guide. You have a place in you that knows your way forward, even if you’ve never been there before.

Navigating loss and change means learning how to trust your inner sense of rightness.

Hard as it is, a time of loss can be a huge teacher about how to trust yourself. Because no one else knows what you need to get through this time… and what you’re going to find yourself creating out of what you’ve lost.

Join me and learn simple, yet powerful processes to help you navigate loss and change.

Life is hard right now. Are your emotions making it even harder?

Most of us are feeling the weight of current events…We're trying to manage difficult emotions in challenging times. It isn't easy. Even when you know what to do to help your feelings (and so many of us don't).

If you'd like to find a new way to respond to triggered emotions - one that brings relief (and not more pain), join me for my newest free video and email series, Living a Less Triggered Life.

You'll learn how to come back to calm when life is hard to handle.

Ulla-Stina Johansson
Focusing is an approach to access your own bodily felt experience through deep listening in presence, openness, not-knowing, curiosity, interest and gentleness. It is a tool to be more coherent and connected to yourself and others and more present and grounded in your daily life. It is also an approach in your work as a therapist with your clients. If you offer an open space, without theoretical filter and therapeutic agenda, it will facilitate for your clients to feel safe and connected. Then the clients more easily could get access to their bodily felt experience, explore it, gain awareness and find words which facilitate growth.

The workshop is experience-based and we will work individually, in pair and in the group.

TIFI logo Dr. Evelyn Fendler-Lee
PLEASE NOTE: THIS COURSE BEGAN AUGUST 4TH BUT YOU MAY STILL REGISTER AND JOIN THIS COURSE IN PROGRESS. YOU WILL RECEIVE RECORDINGS TO THE PREVIOUS CLASSES AFTER YOUR FIRST CLASS.

An online, interactive 4-session course facilitated by Dr. Evelyn Fendler-Lee. Takes place on 4 Tuesdays: August 4, August 11, August 25, and September 1, 2020.

If we understand Focusing as the movement between felt-sensing and symbolization, it can be the motor of our creative thinking processes.

In “Thinking Beyond Patterns: Body, Language and Situations”, Gendlin demonstrates thought-ways of how to think in a way that exceeds existing concepts, forms or rules.

Following the thought-ways experientially will provide us a practice of how to think with and from our implicit intricacy. It will enrich our Focusing and TAE (Thinking at the Edge) practice as well as our understanding of Gendlin’s philosophy of the implicit.

If you are interested in using Focusing for thinking, this 4-session course is right for you.

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

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

In this workshop, we will be: Exploring the pause as an embodied shift from mindless to mindful; Paying attention to the embodied quality of this pause through a simple stretching exercise where we pay attention to our inner experience, our felt sense, as our muscles gently engage and our body realigns; Observing what it means to engage, moment by moment; Exploring the feeling of being at the edge of noticing as if we are an outside witness and being a dancer who is influencing the dance, the kind of experience for which we do not have words that readily fit. Sharing the experience in a Focusing partnership allows us to go deeper into it.

Attending in person is encouraged as there will be the opportunity to practice in pairs, though all registrants will receive a recording of the class. Breakout rooms are not recorded.

The Pause | It's on the corner of Now & Notice, where that old dive "Reaction" used to be. First cup of calm or shot of ease is on the house!

Metaphors aside, The Pause is a drop-in, live, online focusing-oriented meditation class. It's a welcoming place of support and nurture, a place where your nervous system can rest, and a place where you get to cultivate and practice tuning in and noticing what it’s like to be you with friendly presence.

No long term commitment is required. Come once and give it a try! If you like it, come back every time, a couple times a week, or just when you can.

2020 Weeklong Logo
Join us for the 50th Weeklong! We are celebrating the history of this flagship event, and the first 40 years of the Institute. The Weeklong began in Chicago in 1979, and for about 10 years, there were 2 every year. In good Focusing fashion, the exact truth is a bit murky. Therefore, we are simply proclaiming this one number 50!

In the early days, anyone who wanted to become certified by the Institute was required to attend a Weeklong. Now, the Weeklong is still a celebration of our international certification, but it is so much more.

The Weeklong is open to all Focusers who are certified or soon-to-be certified, and to advanced Focusers who have a substantial length and breadth of experience. Coordinators are especially invited to attend. One of the highlights of the Weeklong is the Certification Ceremony where we have the opportunity to officially welcome newly Certified Focusing Professionals into the Focusing community and to celebrate and honor one another on our journeys.

This 8-week online programme provides a solid basis for understanding how to bring the wisdom of your felt sense to your daily experience. We will focus on developing ‘Inner Relational Focusing’, how to listen to ourselves, which is the essential first part of learning Focusing. Before we can bring ourselves into relational depth and be with another with presence we must be able to do so with ourselves. This work is very transformative personally and will aid your relationships with others.

Focusing Highlights is a series of interactive, online pay-what-you-can classes.

Radical acceptance is key to opening up more fully to Life, and also lies at the heart of Focusing. In this session, Addie will share the practice he has developed of Letting Things Be as a different way of relating to our experience in everyday life.

This webinar will include guided exercises and opportunities for participants to share and ask questions. This class is intended for those who are familiar with Focusing, though all are welcome to attend.

Do parts of you get triggered and then overreact?

When you're stressed, under pressure, or anxious, it's a lot easier to get taken over by your emotions when challenging situations arise. And the consequences can be hard to recover from.

Yet you can nourish your ability to to meet life's challenges with calm and learn how to live from your steady center instead of from your reactive parts.

Join me and begin to develop or deepen your Self-in-Presence skills.

We will be exploring the pause as an embodied shift from mindless to mindful. We will be paying attention to the embodied quality of this pause, through a simple stretching exercise. We will be doing this to pay attention to our inner experience, our felt sense, as our muscles gently engage and our body realigns. We will be observing what it means to engage, moment by moment. We will explore the feeling of being at the edge of noticing as if we are an outside witness and being a dancer who is influencing the dance. This is a kind of experience for which we do not have words that readily fit. Sharing the experience in a Focusing partnership allows us to go deeper into it.

The recent pandemic is affecting the whole world in a catastrophic way, as declared by the WHO (World Health Organization). It is obviously affecting all our countries and community groups.

It is urgent to reflect and prepare ourselves in an adequate way to act as real agents of change in the spaces where we have influence.

This short course aims to describe and explain skills and abilities which can be applied in crisis and emergency interventions, both at group and individual level. The goal is to enhance helping professionals and psychotherapists' knowledge of  possible interventions in this current situation. To this end, theoretical and practical-experiential elements will be provided.

Rooted meditation woman (Art by Leah Kolidas) Heidi's Table
A daily (weekdays) drop-in class, open to beginners & long-time focusers alike. Class is 45 minutes long.

Come once in a while or every day! (Class meets at 12 PM New York Time / 9 AM Pacific Time)

Each class I will guide you in a brief attunement to help you settle into a sense of ease and grounding in your body. I will offer gentle guidance in going to the more subtle body places beneath the surface of what you might usually refer to as “I.” You will then have the opportunity to practice tuning in and turning toward yourself and what is there for you today in the supportive and friendly environment of the class. Lastly there will be opportunity for questions and reflections.

Feeling at home in your body, receptive and friendly toward your experience, and able to find a sense of presence and calm even in the midst of the difficult situations that life can bring, these are a few of the things that Focusing-oriented meditation can help you experience.

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.

Right now calm might feel... well, impossible.

Things are truly hard at the moment and experiencing challenging emotions in difficult times is normal.

Yet, it is possible to:

* Soothe your anxiety and fear so you can make clear decisions for yourself and the ones you love

* Know exactly what to do when emotions get overwhelming so you can come back to calm faster

* Be compassionate with your feelings and the feelings of those closest to you right now

I’ve been helping people do this for over 35 years in more than 19 countries worldwide, and I’d love to help you too.

Weltweit müssen Menschen sich momentan distanzieren und auf ihr häusliches Umfeld zurückziehen, um eine schnelle, ungezügelte Verbreitung des Coronavirus einzudämmen.
Dies bedeutet auf zwischenmenschliche Begegnung, Austausch, Kontakt, berufliche Tätigkeit, Engagement, kulturelle Teilhabe und vieles mehr zu verzichten.

Dazu kommt die tägliche Sorge um nahestehende und besonders gefährdete Mitmenschen sowie existenzielle Sorgen um das eigene Wohlergehen und den drohenden Verlust des eigenen Arbeitsplatzes.

Focusing is an approach to access your own bodily felt experience through deep listening in presence, openness, not-knowing, curiosity, interest and gentleness. It is a tool to be more coherent and connected to yourself and others and more present and grounded in your daily life. It is also an approach in your work as a therapist with your clients. If you offer an open space, without theoretical filter and therapeutic agenda, it will facilitate for your clients to feel safe and connected. Then they more easily could get access to bodily felt experience, explore it, gain awareness which facilitates growth.

The workshop is experience-based and we will work individually, in pair and in the group.

In this Roundtable, we will reflect on simple practices that can naturally bring a person to attend to what is present, stopping for a moment the “‘noise” that is produced through the movement of time -from the past to the future - and letting one sense the deeper “felt” of the whole situation. The Roundtable will offer
