Focusing
& listening

Workshops for Experienced Focusers

These weekends are intended for focusers who have studied the basics and who want to learn more ways to work with and enjoy Focusing, both for themselves and for helping others. Most of these workshops form part of my Practitioner Programme, but you don't have to sign up for the Programme to do them. Ideally, you will have completed the Focusing Skills workshops, but if you haven't, I might relent and let you do them. They all include personal and group Focusing time, discussion and tasty nuggets of intellectual stimulation.
