Introduction to Focusing
December 7 @ 10:00 am - December 8 @ 4:00 pm€140
This weekend course will provide an introduction to the skills of focusing where you will learn how to pay attention to the wisdom of your body. Inner wisdom and emotional healing are two of the most important results of this skill. Focusing teaches us to trust our inner authority offering an alternative to the long learned habit of looking to outer authority for direction.
This skill helps us to understand our body’s sensations, some of which are familiar and yet hard to pin down. Decision making, dream understanding are two of the many other benefits of knowing how to focus. Focusing can be used to address a wide array of issues. When we feel upset and agitated, we typically turn to our intellect to solve the problem. This works well… until it doesn’t. Life’s toughest problems, especially those involving emotions and other people, can’t be solved this way. Do you feel stuck? Like you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked? It’s not that there’s something wrong with you, it’s that the way our culture is set up leaves us cut off from our bodies, a powerful source of wisdom.
Previous workshop participants have said…
”It really helped me to be with my grief.”
“I find the practicing of focusing amazing.”
“For me the skill of focusing is to listen to my gut and puts structure on a simple but powerful process. I’ve been using it alongside mediation as a way of getting a sense of where thing are at and teasing out thigs I am not sure about.”
“For over 40 years I listened to my head and became accustomed to thinking in a particular way. Focusing is so completely different. It centres me. It provides the opportunity to listen to the quiet whisper that can simply drown out the louder, shouting voice in my head. I have learned that the whisper is me, the true me.”
“Through focusing I have discovered, deep within myself, a well of peace and calmness where I go to re-energize and get perspective.”
