Focusing is a gentle and powerful way to allow clients to become friendly with their bodily experience and wisdom. The word “focusing” evokes what happens when we adjust binoculars: a blurry image turns into a clear one.
Introducing Focusing into your practice brings embodiment to the therapeutic alliance. You don’t give up your current therapeutic framework. You expand from it to bring it into the present moment through the felt sense experience.
Serge Prengel is offering this 4-session introductory course as a fund-raiser for The International Focusing Institute (TIFI). The course is free. We hope that, if you like it, you will make a donation to TIFI. How much you give is up to you.
The course is both for therapists and non-therapists, as Focusing can be used by individuals as well as in therapy. Its title is: Introduction to Focusing as action-oriented contemplation.
The first 3 sessions were on 1/16, 2/6, and 2/27. If you missed the first live sessions, you can catch up with recordings.
Session 1 was mostly to introduce non-therapists to active listening. Session 2 was about the natural three-step process of mindful engagement that underlies Focusing. In session 3, we paid more attention to the felt sense.
March 20 will be session 4. We will integrate this naturally flowing practice with the traditional description of Focusing as a six-step process.
