Beginners workshops and courses

When and where
In 2019 I am offering these in weekend workshops in Bristol starting in February, through online courses starting in January, and through day courses in Stroud
Who is this for?
Anyone!
What?
My workshops, courses and days are an ideal way to learn Focusing. They are a mixture of practice, teaching and informal discussion. Usually participants will practise Focusing in pairs or in small groups, with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Explore how to:

  • Live a life full of curiosity
  • Tune into your inner wisdom
  • Meet yourself and others with kindness and openness
  • Be with and understand strong emotion
  • Find what truly feels right for you and your life
  • Connect more deeply to yourself, others, and the world…



Some of the skills you will learn:

  • Develop the key qualities of curiosity, interest and inner kindness
  • Be safe and respectful with yourself and others in Focusing
  • The steps of the Focusing journey
  • Develop self-compassion
  • How to practise Focusing on your own
  • How to practise Focusing with someone else
