Focusing Skills Certificate Workshop/Event

Module 2  Focusing partnerships – Developing your Listening Skills

In this 2ndLevel of the BFA Skills Certification we turn towards deepening our Listening Skills.

Total 12 hours online :  4 x 3 hours

Dates October 12/19/26 & Nov 02

We built the foundation of this in Level 1 which is a prerequisite for Level 2.

When we begin our journey as a companion in our Focusing partnerships, questions arise like:

Am I doing this right?

How do I pace this?

Reflecting too much/not enough?

Getting in the way?

Ann Weiser Cornell (1996) says “ you may discover that you are out of practice as a listener. You’ll almost certainly find that listening will be very rewarding to you.”

During this training we will brainstorm what it means to be a ‘good’ listener.

We’ll practice group and partner exercises in Listening

Most of all we will practice and continue to learn by our experience of Focusing

Paula brings elements of Non Violent Communication (NVC) into this module.

“Like Focusing, learning NVC was a life changing skill for me” Paula

In this 12 hour training We will have plenty of Focusing practice in pairs and time for group discussion.

Ann goes on to say “Listening to another person who is Focusing is the most meditative thing I can do”

By the end of this module, you’ll feel more confident in being a companion and have deepened your own Focusing practice.
