"A note of thanks and appreciation for your teaching and this focusing class.  I am responding very deeply to this material and have been surprised again and again at its simplicity, depth and relevance.   Thank you for sharing what you clearly love so deeply and building this strong, strong container for us to learn."       D.A. - Environmental Educator, Storyteller

               

"I'm wrapping up my time in this course with much gratitude for Daphne.  I'd struggled with trying to find a mindfulness practice that would work for me. What I needed was a bodyful practice - a practice that is centered in open curiosity and the welcoming of my own embodied felt sense.  Focusing has become this for me.  Daphne is a wonderful, gentle, focusing practitioner and teacher who brought us into the focusing process in a clear and gentle way.  It's been a pleasure to work with her. "

“Daphne is deeply experienced with the processes of listening to what the body wants to tell the brain: the process of Focusing. She is a teacher who knows it can be difficult for people to learn Focusing, because it took her a long time to learn. I think slow learners make the best teachers, because they don’t take anything for granted. Relax if you are a slow learner, and release your judgment, Daphne is a wonderful teacher for you.”
