Focusing Fundamentals Training

The basics of Focusing are learned in Level 1, from which you will gain immediate benefit. To fully learn the process and enhance your skills, you continue on to Levels 2 and 3. Mastery takes practice, and practice sessions are offered. 

"Your Body Knows the Answer"

  • Get in touch with what you are truly feeling and wanting

  • Tap into your body’s inner wisdom and intuition

  • Discover how to live in the present and find your ‘inner voice’

  • Learn how to make decisions and solve problems creatively

  • Become more authentic and enjoy your life

Level 1 – Discovering Your Inner Compass

If you’re ready to learn felt sensing and finding your own answers in a supported way, this is the place to start. You will gain:

  • a practical, step-by-step method for starting with any problem or stuck situation and finding relief, clarity, and new direction for action,

  • a simple but powerful deep listening process that reaches beneath the surface and teaches you how to be supportive to other people and yourself

  • an ability to recognise distinct ‘bodily knowing’ and your ‘felt sense’; a holistic sense including physical sensations that contains meaning and pertains to a particular situation

  • a way of trusting what you know, and realising that you know more than you think

  • a way of moving forward and taking your learning beyond the course and into your daily life   

Participants will have the opportunity to observe demonstrations, immediately apply gained skills through individual and group practice, and carry them forward into their lives. This training is highly experiential. Manuals, recommended readings and handouts are also included.

Level 2 – The Journey with the Companion

Level 2 of your Focusing Training Program supports you in deepening your experience with this method and its effects. You will gain:

  • more tools and practice in the ability to be compassionately larger than your difficult emotions

  • more about the “edge,” that place where what is unclear becomes clear

  • support in getting the most out of your Focusing process, especially in the places where you know it could go further but doesn't

  • “advanced listening” skills and further development of the skillful reflections that support and deepen the unfolding process

  • more opportunities for supported practice with partners, as well as for questions and discussion

Participants will have the opportunity to observe demonstrations, immediately apply gained skills through group practice, and carry them forward into their lives. This training is highly experiential. Manuals, recommended readings and handouts are also included.

Level 3 – Going to the Centre of the Maze

This advanced course in the Focusing Training Program centres on getting past the most typical blocks to Focusing: the inner critic, doubts, sleepiness, distractions, feeling too much or not feeling at all. As we learn how to be present for this in our partners, we also learn how to deepen the process for ourselves.

Focusing now becomes even more integrated into your life, increasing your sensitivity towards yourself and those around you. In Level 3, you will gain:

  • ability to work through a major block to Focusing: being identified with a 'feeling about a feeling'

  • powerful language and attitudes for helping yourself and others shift your experience of an 'inner criticising process'

  • ability to help yourself and others when feeling overwhelmed by strong emotional states

  • ability to help yourself and others when encountering resistance to feeling anything

Participants will have the opportunity to observe demonstrations, immediately apply gained skills through  group practice, and carry them forward into their lives. This training is highly experiential. Manuals, recommended readings and handouts are also included.
