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. (If you are in training but feeling somewhat ‘lapsed’, this may be just the thing to get you re-inspired!) People combining focusing with another approach or profession are also welcome to attend. 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
  • Shared silent space before breakfast each day for movement and/or meditation (optional!)
  • Space for resting, walks and socialising
If this event is of interest to you, please contact me for further details and booking form. Looking forward to hearing from you!

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. Prerequisite: Focusing Skills Course Level 2

More

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. Sep 11-7pm. At a secret location near Stroud Opene to anyone who knows Focusing

More

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. The dreaming body: Exploring dreams with Focusing: 5 week course begins 4th Nov 7.00-9.15pm https://www.livingfocusing.co.uk/dreams.html
