Simon McKibbin aka Sinhaketu - Focusing Member in eastern


Biography

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.

Focusing for a new Relationship with Traumatised Parts: Safety, Space to breathe & Forward Movement Year Long Residential Course Galway Ireland 2019   Certificated Focusing Foundation Course This course comprises of 4 long weekends at beautiful An Tionol, Compassionate Community Centre, Galway, Ireland. Venue easily accessible from UK with cheap flights to Shannon airport & then 1 hour away. Focusing to Companion trauma, vulnerability, distressed, sad, and raw places Shifting from ‘Trauma Informed Care’ to ‘Healing Centred Engagement’, Focusing is a unique approach offering a sensitive and gentle way into in-depth Healing prioritising safety through grounded presence and a Companion This respectful process follows our natural energies allowing for a nurturing safety to grow where we can be supported and enabled to have a safe and spacious inner relationship. Unique to the process is Simon with his extensive Focusing, Mindfulness and NVC experience who also draws and shares from his own journey from trauma to a safe and spacious grounded way of being. We all have our edges of challenge, we don’t necessarily need to be in touch with Trauma for this deep inner and outer experience to be relevant, it is about inviting an ever increasing sense of open spacious and grounded way of being! This Year will provide you with extensive approaches to create resilience, creativity, safety and forward flow in your life. What is Focusing? It is a way of ‘coming home’ to yourself – a means of radical acceptance of anything inviting a sense of ease, flow and freedom. 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.

  • Certified NVC Trainer
  • BFA Certified Focusing Teacher
I met Eugene Gendlin on Summer School at Garrison in about 2000 and was touched by the humanity and humility he displayed which endeared me to him both as a Human Being and as a tremendous inspiration to explore Focusing.  I have, I believe, benefitted more from Focusing than any other paradigm for transformation which is based on the body’s innate and natural ability to receive it’s own healing and forward movement when brought into a safe and resonant relationship with self and others. I combine Focusing with elements of Non-Violent Communication NVC and Mindfulness to further enrich the natural process of healing and community More on Simon and one to one https://www.mindfulnesswithompassion.com About the Host and support Facilitator: Marta Fabregat
  • MA Social & Community Mediator Skills
  • Plant and Herbal Medicine Specialist
  • Facilitator at An Tionól Creative & Compassionate Living Centre
I trained as a social mediator, and in conflict resolution, community development and facilitation. I love hosting - holding a space, and healing in nature gives this course an exciting blend of elements to accompany the NVC process as a community adventure. An Tionól Cottage´s natural environment, with a strong presence of an Irish oak forest and its respectful approach to learning, is the vessel that holds us together as a community. It is our intention to continue opening space for new, fresh ways of communicating, connecting and being in the world.
