What do you do when you want to let go of something in you, but it is not ready to let go of you!?
How wonderful would it be if you could ‘be with yourself’ in a way that inspired flow and movement even with the most challenging of patterns, to tap into your innate body wisdom?
You can! Learn how to Travel Lighter in your life with Gene Gendlin’s Focusing Method.
What is Focusing?
Focusing is gentle and profound. It is a natural way of paying attention to oneself and others that is based in concrete inner experience.
By focusing inwardly and listening to your body, you can understand how you truly feel about your circumstances, a specific situation or a relationship. Embracing the flow of feelings in a non-judgmental way offers a fresh and new transformational process.
And that results in forward flow of well-being, balance and self-awareness.
Focusing allows access to deeper levels of awareness, wisdom, and self-guidance that reside inside each of us. Through an easily learned, step-by step process, Focusing teaches how to turn our attention inside our bodies where we carry all our personal experiences, memories, sensations, emotions and feelings, even parts that we never thought there were there.
It offers a creative and quietly profound way of being even with what we find most difficult and challenging. In focusing we are often pleasantly surprised by fresh or new spaces emerging, even from ‘impossibly stuck’ places.
It is a moment by moment way of ‘coming home’ to yourself. It is an exquisitely sensitive way of listening to or sensing what our (inner) world is telling us, often in the form of subtle feelings/sensations, in a way that is safe and gentle.

CONTRIBUTION – Sacred Economy
There is no fixed price for the course. There is a Dana box / through bank transfer. When making an economic contribution Dana is meant to be an expression of generosity and innate human gratitude, a way of valuing the teachings and a means of maintaining the well-being of those who have committed their lives on this path.
Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teacher, but also the larger community, and your own practice.
Suggested price per module (€80 – €150) If you can offer more, you facilitate the possibility of participation of other people who need support at this time. Gift economy is based in gifting one another and supporting each other. Talk to me if you want to know more about it or if you need more support.
