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: Daytime course starts 22nd April 10-12.15 GMT 12 Wednesday mornings. (no class on June 3rd) COSTS: £160 Early bird if paid by Feb 19th or £195 after those dates

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
This course is not just about the grief of losing a loved one. We live with many kinds of grief and all are welcome here. Open to anyone who has knows the basics of Focusing and Listening in paired practice.   Six Tuesday evenings 7-9.15 Costs £120
