Free. 4 sessions (1/16, 2/6, 2/27, 3/20).
Serge Prengel is offering this 4-session course as a fund-raiser for The International Focusing Institute (TIFI). The course is free: “I hope that, if you like it, you will make a donation to TIFI. How much you give is up to you. It is totally separate from registering for this course.”
Focusing is the mindful practice of using our bodily felt sense to guide our actions, moment by moment. We turn our attention inward to notice subtle sensations and see them gradually come into focus and become meaningful. The word “focusing” evokes what happens when we adjust binoculars: a blurry image turns into a clear one.
The core practice of Focusing is the mindful listening partnership. So, in session 1, we start by paying attention to the different ways that we can listen.
In session 2, we build from there to notice and deepen the natural three-step process of mindful engagement that underlies Focusing.
In session 3, we pay more attention to the felt sense: how it forms, how we notice it, how it carries forward.
In session 4, we integrate this naturally flowing practice with the traditional description of Focusing as a six-step process.
