This comprehensive foundation course in Focusing and listening is a combination of online (Zoom) group sessions and one long-weekend residential retreat. No prior experience of Focusing is required.The course is divided into five sections: four blocks of four weekly Zoom sessions (16 in total), between January and the end of June, plus a residential retreat on April 5th - 7th. The retreat will be held at the Purley Chase Centre, near Atherstone in Warwickshire. You are welcome to attend the 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 and all participants will be invited to come together for the in-person retreat. If the residential component is not accessible for you, it is also possible to do this section of the course online. There will be two Zoom groups running in parallel: one on Tuesday afternoons, one on Wednesday mornings and a possible third group on Wed or Thurs evening. In this small-group setting, you will find 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 threes. The main themes of the five course sections are:

  • An introduction to Focusing and companioning
  • The nature of the felt sense and how to receive your own and others’ experience skilfully and sensitively
  • The gifts of the body in Focusing and companioning
  • Offering suggestions in the listening role, and being with complex areas of inner experience
  • 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 and the long 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!

Meet yourself beyond your stories into places of deep inner nourishment, rest and a Coming Home to who you really are. Be guided by the feel-flow of your Fresh Edge for Wholeness, naturally.
 
Online Zoom Focusing Skills Foundation Travel Lighter Courses
2 courses Commence 25 March 2019 (Morning time slot) & 11 April 2019 (Evening time slot)
  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. Listen now to Short introduction to Focusing with Healing Attunement  https://soundcloud.com/simon-mckibbin/exquisite-self-healing-through-focusing-an-intro-attunement    This Focusing 5 Module Course offers a means to; 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 Enjoy an enriched sense of sharing and communing with others Learn to sense and befriend your body in a new & empowered way Live life from the unfolding fresh moment Community This program offers not only an enrichment in wellbeing but a profoundly deep sense of connection and sharing with an inclusive sense of community experience.   What can you expect in any one session Enjoy the closeness and intimacy of others on a shared journey Hear and see the others as you interact and explore focusing Do exercises, demonstrations and explore focusing together Connect with individuals and the whole group (up to 6) Focusing sessions between online sessions   An online course, How?   Zoom

Focusing for a new Relationship with Traumatised Parts: Safety, Space to breathe & Forward Movement Year Long Residential Course Galway Ireland...

More

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.

  • 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

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.

Portals into Presence Webinar Sat 13 April 19 1.30pm to 6pm GMT

More

Over the last two years we – Wholebody Focusing trainers Cecelia Clegg and Addie van der Kooy - have presented a variety of webinars on Presence which have given us invaluable insight into what it takes to access and sustain an experience of ‘embodied Presence’; and what gets in the way of this. Embodied Presence points to an experience of felt sensing an “underlying field of alive Presence” which is totally unaffected by whatever goes on inside and around you.  To include a felt sense of this Being dimension in us can create a new and powerful dynamic in your Focusing, often opening doors to deep healing shifts. Based on these insights we have designed a new experiential webinar, which will take you on a step-by-step journey into a full-bodied experience of Presence or “Me Here”.  With each portal we will look at potential pitfalls, such as the way in which we habitually relate to the present moment, how we relate to our thoughts and how we assess our momentary experiences. There will also be plenty of time to practice what it takes to go deeper into an experience of Presence.  Each practice will be followed by an opportunity to share your experiences within the safety of a small group of fellow Focusers. Anyone who is familiar with Focusing, regardless of the level of training and experience, is welcome.  Best to book swiftly as there will be a limited number of places available. Date & Time: Saturday 13thApril from 1.30pm till 6pm GMT, with a 30 minute break at the mid point. Venue: Virtual “meeting room” on Zoom platform.  Zoom (like Skype) is very user-friendly and easy-to-install software for on-line video meetings.  If you do not already have Zoom on your computer, you will be given simple instructions for downloading Zoom (free of charge) prior to the sessions. Booking: The cost for the webinar is £80. To book your place, email Cecelia Clegg on ceceliaclegg44@gmail.com who will send you payment instructions.

Yes, You Can – Learn to Cope With Focusing Vacation Workshop in Greece We all know it: the sensation of feeling bogged down by everyday life: thoughts of inadequacy, endless lists of things to do, quarrels with loved-ones... Now imagine you had a tool to keep all those negative thoughts and feelings at a good distance, so that you are not overwhelmed by them, but are able to deal with life's challenges in the best possible way. What would your life feel like? Focusing is just such a tool. Basically, Focusing teaches you how to have a helpful and healing relationship with yourself and with others. You first of all learn how to put a good distance between yourself and all that is bothering you. This is a prerequisite to deal with your problems in an effective way. It's a bit like reading: you have to keep the newspaper at an appropriate distance in order to make sense of what's written. But Focusing is even more. It's a way to tap into your intuition - into that part of yourself that already knows the way forward, the appropriate next steps, the way to live a fulfilled and authentic life. In this workshop you will learn:

  • the basic steps of Focusing
  • how to keep a distance between your problems and yourself
  • how to listen to your intuition
At the same time you'll be experiencing community living, sharing in everyday tasks like cooking or washing up etc. As the workshop will take place in the mornings only, there'll be ample time to relax at the beach, go for walks or simply lie in the hammock and read a good book. Where: Kalikalos, Greece, www.kalikalos.com Price: € 575 - € 825 (includes workshop and full accomodation, including 3 vegetarian meals a day (except one evening meal when we eat in a taverna) Booking and info: u.ohse@t-online.de and friederike@kalikalos.com Info-Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gh3A91FIr5w&t=20s

More

Focusing is a process that can enrich all areas of our lives, as it is about the very way that we attend to our experiencing. It can help us to step out of our habitual ways of relating to ourselves, others, situations and into a way of experiencing that is more nuanced, rich and alive. Focusing is a natural skill that anyone can develop and Focusing-listening partnerships are a brilliant resource for supporting our wellbeing and ongoing self exploration. Focusing could be seen as an antidote to the fast driven ways of the modern world – and perhaps can help us steer a calmer path through it! Learning Focusing can help

  • developing more of a connection with your body
  • improving your relationship with yourself
  • improving your self esteem
  • supporting you with overwhelming emotions such as anxiety
  • connecting with your intuition
The workshop will be highly experiential and will include plenty of opportunity to practice the Focusing process. There will be time to explore the concept of the ‘felt sense’ and the particular way of Focusing listening, as well as how Focusing can be used in day to day life. There is the option to complete a second workshop, then potentially four more weekend workshops which lead to a BFA Certificate in Focusing Skills. Once you have learnt this valuable process you can practice Focusing on your own or in a Focusing-listening partnership. Practising Focusing can be a lifelong skill for self awareness and support.

More

This is the second process that Eugene Gendlin has developed, after Focusing. It is using Focusing to identify exactly what you know about something. It enables you to articulate what you want to say about this, in the way that only you can. Find something that you care about, that you know something about, and that you want to say something about. Discover how you can begin to communicate what you know but can’t yet formulate. This is an introductory weekend, and we will only have time to explore the first stages of the TAE process. But that is valuable in itself – it’s an adventure in thinking, Focusing, self-exploration and questioning. It’s challenging, demanding and very enjoyable.

Whole Body Focusing

 
Sat 31 August 2019 (7 Days)
Alex Maunder & Susan Miles
Beneath all of our stress and trauma lies an inner wellspring of intelligence and vitality that knows how to move our life situations forward. Invite your power of awareness to awaken this intuitive power of your body wisdom through the natural process of Whole Body Mindfulness. Many people are carrying great emotional pain. Suffering is fine if it can lead to a growth in understanding but pointless and cruel if it merely results in repetitive patterns of behaviour. Seeing the bigger picture: I believe that I am here, like everybody else, to learn Life’s lessons and to move forwards. That can only happen when I stop being so reactive and learn to see things from a different perspective. The deepest reason why I practice and teach Whole Body Mindfulness is that it gives me an intuitive feeling of grounding, safety and support from something much bigger than my little ego. Then my nervous system can calm down, my body feels more relaxed and alive, and I am able to step back and to see the bigger picture. Self-Responsibility is the key: From this new perspective, with mindful self-awareness, I can take responsibility for the parts of my behaviour that are clearly wrong and have contributed to any disharmony in the whole situation. These are the bits that I can change and as I do so I become more empathic about other people’s behaviour. This insight suddenly opens me up to the new possibilities that are surrounding me all of the time, but I am unable to see them due to the stress and trauma of my old reactive patterns. There is only Learning: With Whole Body Focusing it is possible to learn, to let go and to move forwards. All the pain of wanting to be right and to prove the other person wrong suddenly vanishes. There is no right or wrong anymore, there is only learning. The intuitive insights learnt are so powerful that this becomes a spiritual practice in it’s own right that naturally leads to change and activates new neural pathways. This can powerfully contribute to the ongoing process of mindful self-observation and self-transformation. Intuitive Listening: We will also explore the value of intuitive listening with Whole Body Focusing. When connected to our grounded presence, our body wisdom knows how to be with and listen to the other person in a way that we do not. Going beyond the cognitive mind and all theories to a place of pure intuitive knowing, words come that are exactly the right thing to say at the moment as a way of supporting the speaker. Combining elements of the Alexander Technique with the Inner Focusing practice developed by Eugene Gendlin, Whole Body Focusing encourages more of the body into the process of self-enquiry, increasing grounded presence and energy flow. Please note: Whole Body Focusing includes aspects of The Alexander Technique. No prior experience of this work is necessary, but some hands-on bodywork skills will be taught.

Tiered Pricing: £1080 / £820 / £670

Do you sense that your life is not yet expressing your deepest values and inspirations? Do you want to make changes in yourself and the world but keep getting stuck? Do you avoid or find it hard to turn towards life's challenges with creativity and kindness? WHAT DOES THE COURSE HOLD IN STORE? This is a unique opportunity to join me on a 12 week closed group course to explore what keeps us from living with full aliveness. We will delve into those aspects of our lives that "hold us back" and gently find ways to unleash the energy and power in these places. We will meet the core aspects of these tangled places (the critic, the safety guardian and the wounded one) and find new ways to befriend them. We will learn to find hidden treasure there and in the most tricky areas of our life and we will find new ways forward. Some of the themes we will explore will be:

  • Safety and resourcing
  • What holds us back
  • Resources of: presence, metaphor and precision
  • Deep empathy
  • Befriending the Critic
  • Befriending the Safety Guardian
  • Befriending the Wounded One
  • Hidden treasure places: grief, shame, addiction and avoidance
  • Making steps towards change and freedom
There course will comprise of teaching sessions, demonstrations, paired and solo practice and optional practice sessions in between the sessions with other participants. COSTS £160 Early bird - if booked before July 30th. £190 After July 30th. I have a few concessionary places available at £110.

What does it mean for you to be alive? What can we feel when we let go or our "strategic mind" and open to what we do not know? What happens when we open fully to the mysterious nature of being aware and being human, here in this time and place and at the same time connected to all of life around us? What does your body know about this? What does nature know? Join me on a walk and exploration, amongst ancient beeches and the myriad of non human beings in nature enquiring into these questions and more. We will play and explore with exercises from Focusing and Nature awareness practices. We will spend time alone and together in the natural world. We will gather around the hearth and be human again.

What can dreams tell us about our life? How can Focusing help with understanding them? Might there be a way to explore them in a new way that brings clarity and change in our lives? Focusing is all about listening to what the body has to say about our life, but every night something similar happens with our dreams. Something in us (the body/the dream maker) gives us rich, mysterious and powerful symbols, telling us not just about our life situation but how we might carry those situations forward.
