Every bad feeling is potential energy toward a more right way of being if you give it space to move toward its rightness.
Eugene Gendlin (Founder of Focusing)

What if…..you already have within yourself surprising inner resources to life’s dilemmas and frustrations?

What if ….you could connect to a compassionate wisdom within whenever in need

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

We will use Zoom – easy to download with the option to use a free phone based conference facility if need be.
