Simon McKibbin aka Sinhaketu - Focusing Member in eastern


I met Gene Gendlin, the founder of Focusing in 2008 when I visited the Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York.  I was moved by his quality of utter humility and ordinariness, endearing me to want to embrace this precious approach. Through it I have come to appreciate the extraordinary depth of vision that Gene had.

I am touched to share this precious vision of Focusing, enriched and enhanced with 30 years as a Mindfulness practitioner and Nonviolent Communication  (NVC) trainer. I am currently on a one year placement at Cambridge University involved in the research project teaching Focusing based Mindfulness.

What I'm Doing Now

I offer One to One Focusing Coaching to learn/enhance Focusing

I offer One to One Focusing Resourcing for challenging times

Focusing Training for groups and Communicty development

Focusing and Mindfulness (Focusing based Mindfulness)

Focusing and Non Violent Communication (NVC).

A large part of my work involves Focusing based Mindfulness at Cambridge University where I work as a Mindfulness teacher.

  What do you do when you want to let go of something in you, but it is not ready to let go of you!? How wonderful would it be if you could ‘be with yourself’ in a way that inspired flow and movement even with the most challenging of patterns, to tap into your innate body wisdom? Learn how to Travel Lighter through this life moment by moment! I offer these programs ongoing and commence the next one when I have 6 participants registered interest.  Please email me accordingly! What is Focusing? It is a way of ‘coming home’ to yourself. It is an exquisitely sensitive way of listening to or sensing what our (inner) world is telling us, often in the form of subtle feelings/sensations, in a way that is safe and gentle. It offers a creative and quietly profound way of being even with what we find most difficult and challenging. In focusing we are often pleasantly surprised by fresh or new spaces emerging, even from ‘impossibly stuck’ places. It is, in my experience a deeply satisfying process allowing my heart and soul space to breathe and be itself, to find its own sense of rightness. On this 5 Module Course we will explore the following: Develop a grounded and balanced sense of yourself. Compassionately respond to your inner judge. Enable a gentle and deep inner healing process Develop empathic and sensitive listening Learn to sense and befriend your body in a new & empowered way Live life from the unfolding fresh moment Module 1 overview (First Steps on your Focusing Journey) offers A comprehensive introduction to focusing Allow you to engage in focusing partnerships Module 1 Content Exploring the landscape – Focusing and silent listening Describing and resonating Letting it be there as fully as it wants to be The shape of the Focusing process What can you expect in any one session Hear and see the others as you interact and explore focusing Do exercises, demonstrations and receive instructions Ring off for focusing sessions with other participants Connect with individuals and the whole group (up to 6) Reading and Focusing sessions between online sessions This online course offers a very convenient way o to participate from the comfort of home, avoiding travel and whilst enjoying a sense of connection and community.
