FOCUSING FROM EXPERIENCE: LEVEL 1
7:00 to 9:00 pm Friday, April 19 and 9:30 am to 4:30 pm Saturday, April 20, 2013
The next workshop will be June 28 - 29, 2013.
This experiential workshop is an introduction to Focusing and the bodily felt sense. The philosophy and steps of Focusing were presented by Eugene Gendlin, Ph. D. in his book Focusing in 1981. There are now different forms and variations of Focusing, based on Gendlin's original principles and steps. In Level 1, we will be experiencing Biospiritual Focusing and being more present in the moment.
In this workshop, you will gain an understanding of the process of Focusing by participating in body and breath awareness exercises and by attending to your own bodily felt sense with interested curiosity. You will develop and/or improve your ability to observe and feel body sensations, and discover how attending gently to the “felt sense” of an issue can ultimately lead to a more settled or peaceful state within yourself. For anyone who is in the helping field and works with the body, the skills learned in this workshop will improve your & your clients' satisfaction of the therapeutic process.
This workshop is a prerequisite for Level 2. Level 2 is recommended for those who intend to facilitate Focusing for themselves, friends or clients.
COST: $125 plus GST, lunch and refreshments provided. The cost for people who are repeating Level 1 is $60 plus GST.
Bring a water bottle or travel mug and a notebook and pen.
Overnight stay is $10 plus GST&PST- add $5plus GST&PST if you require towels and bedding. Bring your own food other than for lunch.
