Creating Space for Lasting Change: Part 2 Focusing


Part 1 is like training wheels.  With Parts 2-4, we get even better at riding any terrain that life presents us with.   No matter what your level of Focusing skill is when you begin these trainings, the door is now open to a sense of more empowerment.  In ever-flowing layers, here we come to understand that we are always changing and evolving and Focusing is that essence from which we feel flow and thriving in our lives.  More often we consciously understand how to bring ourselves back to what feels open, alive and flowing anytime we do not feel that way either inside ourselves or with what is going on in the world around us.    These workshops can also be designed in alternate formats.  Currently, our most popular format is to gather in groups that meet every 2 weeks 6-8 times for 2 hrs. This gives us time to fit training into our busy lives, provides a structure for us to continue practicing, helps us bond with the Focusers in our group and gives the subtleties of this process time to work.  Fee Range for each 6-8 session Level:  $150-240.

PART 2 is about deepening into the Focusing and Listening process by looking more at the role of the Companion. A companion to ourselves as well as others. We learn lead-ins. Then, wherever your process is now, this course nurtures your next step. Our ability to be larger than our emotions or challenges gets stronger. Our understanding of what it is like to stand on the edge of something new gains clarity. Practice with others in the class opens up our process to even more ways of communicating with us.

The structure of the class for Part 2 is very similar to Part 1. We continue our emphasis on Empowered Focuser, Relaxed Companion and on deepening our understanding of this state of being we call Presence from which all the rest of Focusing unfolds.


Sandy is one of those teachers who will change your life. Someone you can point to and say, ‘yes, her influence gave me an entirely new perspective and skills that were transformational’. She’s so with you in the moment that you feel life moving forward in every class. Having taken both her part 1 and part 2 focusing, I have a new way of being in the world. In her virtual classes, I’ve met wonderfully talented and interesting people and I can’t wait to continue with parts 3 and 4.

I have recommended Sandy to many colleagues and friends both for her on-line classes as well as her extraordinary private sessions.


For 2022, I may have a few spots available in these classes below. Reach out and check with me if you are interested in joining a group.

It’s helpful to contact me in advance if you are interested in classes as I can keep you updated and involve you in choosing schedules. 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: Part 2 Focusing Class

For those repeating or reviewing theses skills



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 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!
