LEVEL 3 is called the Guide’s Journey. My Favorite Level when I did my initial training! Here we learn the typical ‘shape’ of a Focusing session, so we know what stage the process is in and what reminder would be most helpful. We dip deeper into our understanding of body as process by exploring it as a dance of neurobiology and physiology. This expands our sense of Presence in an experiential way we notice in our daily life. We learn here to be aware of and bigger than, our inner process alongside something that has learned to help us with the stages of process. We’ll discover more ways to bring Focusing into our daily life as we learn invitations here which very much adapt to our everyday relationships. There is a lot of new information in this level. By extending the class over a period of months, we’ll give ourselves space and time to integrate this information at a deep level. There are no assistants in this class. I hope that each of you will sometime volunteer to participate as either Focuser or Companion in a Demo. In addition to the six classes, I have added an additional 30 min with me individually to this level. This gives us an opportunity to really check in around what it is like for you to have the Focusing process in your life and invite potential next steps.
If you are a healing professional or have opportunities to support others (kids, clients, friends, etc!!) as they process a life situation, the guiding tools of Level 3 and one’s growing ability to understand every relational encounter as somewhere ‘in process’, are invaluable skills. This is also a great level to consider repeating sometime.
2020 CLASSES ARE HERE!
For 2020, there may be a few new spots available in the Level 3 Tuesday evening Zoom class starting in October. It’s best to contact me in advance if you are interested in any particular level as I can keep you updated and involve you in choosing schedules. Email me HERE if you would like to be added to an email list for all of the options going on. If these fees are difficult for you, I do offer options to pay over time and often have a low income spot available. Please reach out and contact me about your situation.
What a great gift to yourself and those around you, empowering yourself in the multitudes of ways that unfold with this powerful partnership practice!

Creating Space for Lasting Change: Level 3 Focusing Class
Includes six 2 hour classes, digital student manual and 30 min one-to-one with Sandy Jahmi Burg
HOW FOCUSING CLASSES WORK
There will be lectures, demonstrations, question periods, group exercises, and paired exercises. You will be paired to practice a Focusing exercise with another participant each class session. There will also be an additional paired homework exercise between sessions that will take approximately 45 min. Even with local classes, this additional exercise is usually done over the phone. Please plan to attend all 6 or 8 sessions for the full time of the meeting. Missing one or two classes is acceptable. If you miss more than two classes, it is often best to repeat the Level.
For the videoconference class, all you need is a computer with a camera. You can also attend via a cellphone. You’ll be able to see everyone in the class, generally, whoever is speaking appears larger at the time. You can mute and turn off your video camera as needed. Recordings may be available if you miss a class. Video seminars work amazingly well. Hope to see you here!
