Focusing Roundtables TIFI Events Leonie Stewart Sue Burrell
Our ‘Wise SELF’ is the all-encompassing, best version of YOU and me. In Focusing, we often assume that a person's 'Wise SELF' will emerge organically (and it can). This roundtable will show participants how to unfold your Wise SELF or guide others through a ‘Wise SELF’ Focusing process.

Annette Dubreuil
The base of the PUPA Focusing Training Program consisting of five courses, designed to not only learn and teach Focusing, but to also get to know and transform yourself, while creating change in the world— by brining more Focusing into the world.

The five core courses cover learning Focusing, learning about who you are, learning who you want to be and what you want to bring into the world using Thinking At the Edge (TAE, Gendlin’s second practice), transforming a large block using the 8Cs of self-leadership, and finally a course on taking action with embodied leadership.

The additional training requirements provide the skills to teach Focusing or guide someone

Our usual practice is to open with an attunement that helps us set aside our busy lives and deliberately come into this protected space, where we can be with whatever is there in our inner world that needs our warm curious attention. 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.

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.

An 8 week experiential class in listening to the felt sense to cultivate resilience both in the moment and as an enduring trait.

This Therapist Roundtable will draw from chapter 21 on Values in Gendlin’s book, "Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy: A Manual of the Experiential Method" (1996). In this chapter, Gendlin explores the meaning of “values” to us as humans and more particularly the role of values in psychotherapy.

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.

Join me, and let's get started!

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.

Our workshop is an opportunity to reconsider something you aren't happy with, something you disagree with in your life. We aim at a coherent new understanding. You will be guided to develop fresh meanings and forms from your felt sense. This way you create the kind of "normality" that make you feel healthier, happier and empowered.

Monika Catarina Lindner Annette Francesca Dubreuil
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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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:
-Thursdays, February 24-April 21 2022 (no class March 24), 1:30-3:30 pm Eastern (New York Time)
-Mondays, April 4-Mary 30 (no class April 25), 6:30-8:30 pm Eastern (New York Time)

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.

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.

Learn Focusing for Parnerships Amona Buechler, Focusing Trainer
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.

If you are unsure, schedule a Focusing Session with me, the fee will be offset against the course fee in case you decide to join. https://move-with-life.org/online/

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.

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."

Befriending What is Difficult

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

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.

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.

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.

This Therapists’ Circle will draw from Gene’s 1991 article, “On emotion in therapy.” We will distinguish emotions from feelings and the felt sense, and talk about how we work with them--navigating in and out of their terrain, with the goal of serving therapeutic change.

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…

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 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.

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. :)

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.

How does social change happen? This experiential course is grounded in change-making processes and is an opportunity to feel into your place in social patterns on a global and community level. Our facilitators want to share their experiences as changemakers and offer a place to practice emotional regulation and safety while exploring topics like trauma, racism, misogyny, violence against women, homophobia, transphobia, and white privilege. Our explorations will be experiential, group-driven, and offer the excitement of large-group interaction and the intimacy of smaller breakout settings.

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.

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.

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!

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.

introduction to focusing
My approach to teaching Focusing is to show you how it is based on a natural ability that we all have. For people who are new to Focusing, and Focusers who want a creative framework to further develop their skills.
Dreamcatcher Arnold Zeman, MA, CPCC, CFP
Gene Gendlin’s classic work, Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams, explains how to use Focusing and your Felt Sense of a dream to plumb its depth, discover its hidden meaning, and carry your living forward. In this Workshop, you'll learn how to apply his distinctive, bi-directional approach to understanding and living forward from your dreams.

The photo is of a traditional Dreamcatcher created by the indigenous peoples across North America, According to their culture, a dreamcatcher is designed to capture bad dreams in its web, while letting the good dreams through.

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.

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

From his perspective as a philosopher, Severson suggests connections between Gendlin’s philosophy of language and the contemporary problems of systemic racism. In this webinar, Severson will investigate some of the philosophical roots of Gendlin’s philosophy, with a focus on the problem of racism in modern American society.

This class is oriented toward therapists and academics with an interest in the connection between Gendlin’s work and the lived experience of language and race, though all are welcome to attend.

Ann Weiser Cornell
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.

The workshop is a three-hour experiential introduction to Inner Relationship Focusing. We'll learn an exercise to clear your inner space in preparation for a Focusing session. We'll cover the basic elements of Inner Relationship Focusing. Finally, you'll have a chance to put it into practice in paired duos.​

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!

Cristina Maier
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.

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

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