Focusing Level 2: Living Forward Energy

2nd September 2020 Online

Focusing Skills Certificate Workshop/Event

Focusing is a gentle way of paying ourselves attention and deepening self-awareness. It trusts that our body knows and can tell us what we need for physical and emotional health.

During Level two, participants will continue with Focusing practice, taking turns to Focus and Companion. Exercises are designed to support working at a deeper level. At the same time, the Focuser is always in charge of their session and each person is encouraged to work at their own pace.

Focusing partnerships will be encouraged and there will be opportunities to discuss your experiences of Focusing and Companioning.

Workshop Structure

There will be a combination of theory, group discussion, exercises and Focusing practice. The course is divided into four parts, each with a particular theme as follows:

PART 1 – You will learn about Gene Gendlin’s Six Focusing Movements and try them out in a group exercise.

PART 2 – Our topic is Focusing with pain and ailments. We will look at how self-in-presence can be helpful when we are feeling physically unwell.

PART 3 – Extending your understandings of the felt sense. This includes ideas about the implicit, the explicit, and the edge of awareness.

PART 4 –We will explore ‘Living Forward Energy’ in a creative way. There will also be a Whole body Focusing Exercise.
