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...Read More
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 with Focusing in your life. What is Focusing? It is a moment by moment 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.
