Untangling the knots
Freedom from compulsion, avoidance and resistance
Wednesday March 25th 2020
Full description...
Perhaps you are like me and binge watch netflix series… or endlessly avoid some difficulty or stuck are in your life? Or maybe you long to make a change but struggle to know how to start?

For the last 15 years I have been using Focusing to explore the most stuck and difficult areas of my life (and still am!) Focusing has given me ways of being with these aspects of myself that have brought both freedom and deep compassion. This free seminar will share some of the gems of that journey. Based strongly on the work of Ann Weiser Cornell and Barbara McGavin we will touch on some of these themes and more:

  • Finding new ways to approach old familiar patterns
  • The map of a “tangle”
  • How to be bigger than all of your parts
  • 3 places of transformation

What would it be like to find a way to stop living in your head… and listen to your heart or body? So many of us feel dominated and limited by anxious thoughts and overthinking issues, but trying to figure things out with our heads… and yet by doing this we lose touch with our deeper wisdom

This free 60 minute seminar shares some skills and insights from the embodied practice of “Focusing” which is in essence a deep and compassionate listening to our deeper, more bodily knowing.

What the body knows
Tuesday Sep 10th 2019
Full description...
The seminar will introduce you to the astounding hidden knowledge of the body. When we speak about inner wisdom - what does that mean? How can we “get out of our head” and listen to our body? What lies beneath the surface and thoughts of daily life? How can we really contact our intuition?

We explore the many dimensions of this inner knowing we have… and its limitations. We explore how to access it and keep alive to it in our life. And we explore the many benefits of being more in touch with this dimension of knowing.

Befriending your “avoidance”
Thursday Mar 21st 2019
Full description...
We all suffer from this very human tendency to avoid difficult situations and feelings. We procrastinate, deny, distract and avoid, and then we give ourselves a hard time for doing this. And so the battle continues. It could be some conflict with a family member, or as big as the current ecological crisis. Something in us avoids it.

What if you had a way to get beneath the battle and completely change your experience of these areas of our life, what if you could be kind to those parts of you that turn away and make allies of them? What if you could learn to be curious about anything…

This free 60 minute seminar will introduce a new way of looking at, exploring and even transforming these stuck areas of our life.

Facing Ecological Crisis: Embodied skills to help us face ecological crisis
Wednesday Dec 6th 2018

Our way of living is profoundly unsustainable and destroying our collective home - the earth. Climate chaos, biodiversity loss, plastic pollution, deforestation…and the very real possibility of extinction if we do not change our ways.

How can we even begin to face this without feeling overwhelmed ? What feelings and responses does knowing this bring in our body? How might we find a response that is creative, congruent and wholehearted?

Freedom from ego...
Thursday January 11th 2018
Full description...
The term "ego" is used in so many contexts, most often negatively, like something we should not have or work to get rid of. But is this useful or even true? Might there be a more compassionate way to relate to what we call "ego"..

Freedom from self criticism:
Monday 6th Feb 2017
Full description...
Many of us are plagued and crippled by what we call our "inner critic" We ignore it, threaten it, shout at it... but does this really work? We may feel at war with ourselves or at worst self hatred. Can we find a new way to relate to this aspect of human experience? Can we find peace with ourselves.
