About the Trainer; Simon McKibbin aka Sinhaketu
I believe focusing learning should be fun with a strong element of community and sharing. I am a certified BFA Focusing practitioner and also a certified trainer in the fields of Mindfulness and Nonviolent Communication (NVC), with 30 years of personal practise. Combining elements of NVC and Mindfulness into the program adds a richness and depth allowing for a deeper facilitating of the Focusing experience. I am currently engaged in teaching Focusing based Mindfulness at Cambridge University.
