Prerequisite: Level 4 or equivalent.
The Online Focusing Skills Certificate Course comprises of 5 Levels, or modules, and leads to a Certificate in Focusing skills which is the foundation for professional training, and gives you a good grounding in the practice of Focusing and Companioning.
Each Level is 4 weekly classes of 3 hours each.
There is a break between each Level for you to practice and to integrate what you have learned.
There follows another series of 4 weekly classes, which comprise the next Level or module. There are five modules in total, so the course takes several months to complete. Focusing works best when you learn and absorb slowly, over a period of time.
The course is based on experiential learning. In each class, you will learn a specific aspect of Focusing and Listening, see a demonstration or do an exercise; and then practice what you are learning in pairs or the whole group. After the session we come back together as a group, hear how it went, any feedback and learning to share and further discussions.
Course outcomes: Learn how to Focus with a Companion.
Learn how to be a Focusing Companion.
Learn how to become present to your experience.
Develop a base for integrating Focusing into your life, for your own personal growth and development.
Prerequisite: Level 1 or equivalent
