The "Introduction to Focusing" Workshop or a phone interview with Daphne
This 8-week course is condensed version of what I formerly offered as two separate courses (levels one and two) and covers both Focusing and Companioning:
Fostering the focusing attitude: befriending ourselves
Presence language to support the inner relationship to self
Accessing and interacting with your felt intelligence
Six steps to Focusing
Being a Focusing companion
Providing structure and reflection as a listener
What makes a great listener
Understanding the value of not fixing others and applying it
Focusing Partnerships - Practice and More Practice
Eight two-hour classes. The evenings include small group and partner formations for experiential learning; teaching and modeling; discussion; and some movement.
Between eight and sixteen practice sessions outside of class (over 8 weeks) with partners from your cohort. Be prepared to spend 2-3 hours per week outside of class for practicing with peers.
Short reading assignments from "The Power of Focusing", a book by Ann Weiser Cornell. Please purchase in advance (approx. $14 on Amazon).
Students gain access to local and global Peer Partnership networks.
The sliding scale for the full course has typically been $195 - $320. If your income has been compromised by the ongoing pandemic, I am offering a pay-what-you-can fee scale. When you email me to register, you can let me know what you're able to contribute.
A non-refundable deposit of $40 is due by April 9th. The remainder is paid on the first evening of the course or, as needed, in installments.
Please register by April 9th.
