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 weekly Zoom sessions (16 in total), between January and the end of June, plus a residential retreat on April 5th - 7th. The retreat will be held at the Purley Chase Centre, near Atherstone in Warwickshire. 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 will be two Zoom groups running in parallel: one on Tuesday afternoons, one on Wednesday mornings and a possible third group on Wed or Thurs evening. 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 main 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. Course fees: The cost for each block of online sessions is £120 and the long weekend residential fee is £140 (plus a donation for accommodation). Please email me for further information and booking form. I look forward to hearing from you!

Would you love 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 into your fresh edge even with the most challenging of patterns? 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 

  • This online course offers a very convenient way o to participate from the comfort of home, avoiding travel and whilst enjoying a sense of connection and community. We will use Zoom - easy to download with the option to use a free phone based conference facility if need be.

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

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. COSTS £160 Early bird - if booked before July 30th. £190 After July 30th. I have a few concessionary places available at £110.
