Introduction to Focusing

Introduction to Focusing – 10th & 24th September - 10-5 - £140 - on Zoom

What is Focusing? What is the felt sense? In this course you will be introduced to the Focusing process and the particular way of Focusing Listening. We will explore the Focusing attitude and the practice of ‘clearing a space’ (which can help with overwhelm). Learn the gentle yet empowering practice of Focusing for getting a better sense of how you feel and what you need. Connect with the inner wisdom that your embodied experience holds and experience a fascinating and enlivening way of connecting with others.

The two days count as the first two days of the Focusing Skills Certificate if you wish to proceed to that. After the Intro course you should have the skills to enter a Focusing-Listening partnership

Places for Saturday only may be possible (£70)

Focusing is a process that can enrich all areas of our lives, as it is about the very way that we pay attention to what we experience. Often we have habitual ways of relating to ourselves, others and situations: Focusing can help us to slow down, listen inside and appreciate the subtleties in our experience. Developing the ability to listen to ourselves with compassion can help us to know what our needs are, make changes and respond differently in life. Being able to notice the richness of our internal and external lives can also make us feel more alive.

Focusing is a natural skill that anyone can develop and Focusing-listening partnerships are a brilliant way of improving wellbeing and supporting self exploration. Focusing can help us steer a calmer path through the fast driven ways of the modern world!

Learning Focusing can help
* developing more of a connection with your body
* improving your relationship with yourself
* improving your self esteem
* supporting you with overwhelming emotions such as anxiety
* connecting with your intuition

The workshop will introduce what exactly Focusing is and cover different ways we can experience things, particularly how we can have a ‘felt sense’ of things and what that means. The workshop will be experiential and will include plenty of opportunity to practice the Focusing process in a supportive environment. There will also be time to explore the particular way of Focusing listening, as well as how Focusing can be used in day to day life. There is the option to complete a second workshop, then potentially four more weekend workshops which lead to a BFA Certificate in Focusing Skills. Once you have learnt this valuable process you can practice Focusing on your own or in a Focusing-listening partnership. Practicing Focusing can be a lifelong skill for self awareness and support.
