Would you benefit from a dedicated space to renew and reflect?

As we enter the time of loving others, may we have dedicated space to connect to deep self-connection and love for ourselves. We invite you to join us in tuning inward, away from distractions, and re-engaging with your inner self more profoundly. We will explore clearing a space, background feelings, and how we might bring this awareness in this upcoming season.

Open to all healing professionals and anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding and application of Clearing a Space.
Monika Catarina Lindner Annette Francesca Dubreuil
The course is an opportunity to spend time with your wanting or project to integrate Focusing into your life—whether personally or professionally—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 special project or issue. By adding certain moves of THINKING AT THE EDGE (TAE), another practice Gendlin created, with Mary Hendricks and Kye Nelson, 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.

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

This is a 30-minute free webinar (with Ann Weiser Cornell) with warm, positive tips for emotional self-care in these challenging times. Each month is different as Ann responds to the present moment and whatever the group is bringing.

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

This is an online event, 5 weekly sessions on Zoom. This is 19.00 - 21.00 CET. We will be using Wholebody Experiential Focusing skills to deepen our inner relationship with our inner parts, and our outer relationship with our partners. There will be a final residential workshop in Assisi, Italy in June 2024. You can count this workshop as part of your training to be a Focusing Trainer with the TFI.
In many relationships there may be a lot of compatibility and attraction but there are certain topics that just become taboo. They are simply too difficult to talk about because of the accumulated emotions and memories. Couples become emotionally reactive and cannot discuss reasonably, because they are fixing blame and inwardly nurturing resentment.
And yet, it is precisely by exploring these issues, using Focusing skills and having the courage to be authentic and vulnerable that fertile areas for love and intimacy are opened up. If couples can develop the courage to communicate with “Radical Authenticity” - exploring with curiosity, openness and compassion, something magical can start to happen. By being authentic and using Focusing tools to stay in an energetic connection something unexpected and perfect happens. A new insight comes that allows the Focuser to pause, to stop blaming self or others and then to take self-responsibility for the little bit that he/she is responsible for. This is the doorway into real growth and change that will transform the relationship.
