Transform Your Life

Focusing is a way of living confidently connected to your own inner knowing in relationship to yourself and others. We learn to live from what we are wanting, our heartfelt joys, our deep passions rather than focusing our attention on what we are worried will happen. This changes everything about how we experience life.

rhonna-collage 3 A community of Focusers from SWVA and across the United States gather here to practice this empowering skill. We join thousands of Focusers worldwide. We practice in partnerships, mostly over the phone, sometimes in person, around the model of Empowered Focuser, Relaxed Companion. We unlearn cultural assumptions like that we have to fix ourselves or get someone to fix us. Instead, we learn to trust that positive change is inherent in us. Aspects of ourselves that may have seemed forever tangled, unwind. We feel lighter, more integrated.  Our life is transformed. We understand what it means to Focus and now we always have access to the way forward that is uniquely right for us.
