Your Guide and Companion Simon ‘K2’ McKibbin

Simon, also known as K2, is an experienced guide and coach, and a Buddhist practitioner of 30 years. He teaches and is affiliated with the University of Cambridge, the Mindfulness in Schools Project, Breathworks (Mindfulness and Pain Management), the Centre for Nonviolent Communication, and the British Focusing Association.

My approach is very embodied, given my extensive experience in mindfulness, working from a basis of ‘Unshakeable presence’ leading to a more integrated, sensitive and available context for relationship with the felt-sense, the holy grail of Focusing.

“Every part within us has it’s own healing mechanism and knows it’s own rightness,” (Gene Gendlin) We just need to know how to hold and be available to these parts in a safe and supportive way, and, as if by magic, the fresh edge will flow into it’s newness – it is the essential connection to build both inner and outer community.
