More

For many of us grief is something we turn away from yet so often, when we pay kind attention to the body… it remembers, or it asks us to remember. It holds both the knowing about what was lost and the key to its healing. Our task is to open a space and listen. This five week course, for those who know Focusing, will open a space to explore these landscapes. It will offer us a sacred space to deeply listen to ourselves and each other in this transformative landscape. Some of the themes we will explore:

  • The gatekeepers of grief - what keeps us away
  • The five gates of grief (from Francis Weller)
  • What the body knows about loss and healing
  • Tending grief in community
Starts 10th February 2020 Six Monday evenings 6-8.15pm Cost: £120. Concessions available

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.

  • 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
