More

Relational Whole Body Focusing (RWBF)  uses the intelligence of the mind to track and name moment to moment bodily sensations, in relationship with another person. This connects you to the ‘We Space’ and a shared human experience. Creating the ‘We Space’ as a safe and spacious container is key to learning RWBF. It helps you to recognise your own relational patterns and triggers, and it brings you an expanded sense of self, greater awareness, more choice and healing. Relational Whole body Focusing was developed by Karen Whalen and Kevin McEvenue. This two-day workshop will provide an introduction to Relational Whole Body Focusing and you will learn tools that can be applied right away. No prior experience of Focusing or Relational Whole Body Focusing is needed.   This workshop can be of interest to people who have no experience of focusing and to experienced focusers alike because RWBF is a different(but related) process . Relational Wholebody Focusing can help you:

  • Improve your listening skills
  • Deepen your relationships in everyday life (and in your focusing partnerships, if you are already a focuser)
  • Learn to better manage trigger reactions to unexpected and undesired situations
  • Increase your sense of wholeness as a person and in your life

I had ignored all signs that my body was giving me even to the point of reaching burnout. Ruth clearly explained and supported me in the exploration to become more present and to help dealing with difficult emotions. I am glad I had the chance to participate in the training.’  Michaela, coach and trainer   ‘Ruth Friedman’s work has assisted enormously in helping me feel more safe and confident in the world.  I am now much more capable of handling situations without becoming overwhelmed. She is a caring and compassionate healer and I highly recommend working with her’    Wendalyn, composer and writer  Thank you for this workshop today which provided the possibility for me to see myself from another angle and to experience something that I have not experienced before. Thank you for your flexibility, trust and patience ….. I appreciate it a lot’  Annamaria, Civil Servant   ‘The process felt very, very complete. This gave stability and grounding the days after which really contributed to my well-being. The last few weeks haven’t been very easy: there was a lot of pressure and stress I was dealing with and that needed to settle down. This work and especially the sense of being able to welcome all the aspects of my being contributed to this.    Joris, Integration Officer
