More

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 Zoom sessions (i.e. 16 in total), between mid-January and the end of June, plus the residential retreat on April 20th - 22nd. 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 are currently places available in a Thursday evening group (6 - 8.15pm) commencing on January 18th. If this day or time doesn't work for you, do let me know as a further group may form. 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 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. The cost of each section is £120 (plus accommodation costs for the retreat). Please email me for further information and booking form. I look forward to hearing from you!

What do you do when you want to let go of something in you, but it is not ready to let go of you!?   How wonderful would it be if you could ‘be with yourself’ in a way that inspired flow and movement even with the most challenging of patterns, to tap into your innate body wisdom? Learn how to Travel Lighter with Focusing in your life.   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

Through it I have come to appreciate the extraordinary depth of vision that Gene had. I am therefore touched to share this precious vision, for my own quality of balance and growth and the sanity of the world, which badly needs it!  I believe I enrich Focusing through my 30 years as a Mindfulness practitioner and teacher and as a Non Violent Communication (NVC) trainer.  I am currently on placement with Cambridge University involved in a Mindfulness research project and teaching Focusing based Mindfulness to the students.

More

Level Five - Trauma and Action Blocks During Level Five we explore trauma from a Focusing perspective and we work with action blocks. An action block is something within you that prevents you from doing what you want to do. Examples are eating a healthy diet, writing an article or book and changing your job. As you approach the end of the certificate training we look towards your next steps as a Focuser and Companion. We will provide information about further training and useful websites. There will be time for each person to review their own process and an opportunity for therapists and counsellors to consider Focusing within their own practice. This is our final workshop as a group and we will take time for an ending. Taught by Paula Newman and Elizabeth Smith

  • Each day begins at 10 am and ends at 4 pm
  • Refreshments, reading materials and exercises included
