How come some life decisions feel "just right" and others feel intuitively wrong? And how come we get totally stuck with some decisions? What does the body know?
Our body knows more than we think! This short online course will explore the easy Focusing can support us in making clearer, better and more holistic decisions: ones that fit in with your deeper sense of rightness and ones that won't end up in resistance and rebellion! We will explore:
  • Finding our now unique "compass"
  • Why decisions get stuck
  • Three ways of using Focusing to guide us
  • Blocks, resistance and procrastination

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. DATES: 14th September 7-9.15 BST 12 Monday evenings (no class on Oct 26th) COSTS: £160 Early bird (if paid by July 31st July) or £195 after those dates
