This 3-day residential workshop in the Warwickshire countryside provides an opportunity for Focusing Practitioners, Teachers and trainees to get together for encouragement, input, inspiration and support.

The event will include the following themes and activities:

  • Being true to your own unique gifts, strengths and direction
  • Deepening your trust in the wisdom of the body and the relational space
  • Sensing for the next steps in your focusing journey
  • Other topics requested by participants
  • Plenty of focusing time in pairs or triads

More

This 6-month, 60-hour foundation course in focusing and listening is structured as a combination of online group sessions and residential workshops.The course is divided into five sections: three blocks of four Zoom sessions (12 in total), plus two residential weekend workshops on April 3th - 5th and June 19th - 21st. The residentials will be held at the Purley Chase Centre, a comfortable venue in the Warwickshire countryside. There will be an online option for participants who are unable to attend the in-person weekends. No prior experience of focusing is required. You are welcome to attend an introductory block of four Zoom sessions without committing upfront to the whole course if you wish. Each online group will have a maximum of five participants to ensure a cosy, friendly setting. Two online groups will run in parallel on Monday evenings (6 - 8.30pm) and Wednesday mornings (10am - 12), both commencing in the week of January 13th. All participants will be invited to come together for the in-person weekends. You will find that the course offers a welcoming, sensitively-held space where you feel able to turn up ‘just as you are’. Each session will include time to settle in together, some input on focusing and companioning and focusing time in pairs or triads. The main themes of the five course sections are:

  • An introduction to focusing and companioning
  • Deepening our focusing and listening
  • The gifts of the body in focusing and listening
  • Sailing with the wind!
  • Self-criticism, ‘exile’ and focusing in everyday life
We will explore these themes together in an experiential way, allowing plenty of time for your own input and reflections. Course fees: The cost for each block of online sessions is £120; the weekend residential fee is £140 (plus a donation for accommodation). Please email me for further information and booking form. I look forward to hearing from you!
