IF YOU ARE JUST BEGINNING…
I do offer free talks to groups interested in learning a bit about Focusing. Maybe you belong to a group that would be interested?
You Might Engage Via Facebook…
There are a variety of internet resources that you can explore for more information. Floyd Focusing Facebook Group is open to those on facebook. It’s a great resource of current events, connections and educational Focusing tidbits maintained by myself, Sandy Jahmi Burg. You may want to explore The International Focusing Institute (focusing.org) or Ann Weiser Cornell’s (focusingresources.com) websites as there is a plethora of information about Focusing there.
Or Maybe Borrow a Book….
If you live near Floyd, VA, we maintain a Focusing loaner library with resources that you can read or listen to. Beginners usually start with Ann Weiser Cornell’s “The Power of Focusing” .. it’s a slim easy read and there are several copies circulating so you won’t have to wait too long to get one. I am also available to chat with you more about what Focusing is and the various options available. Contact me by email to schedule a phone call or to inquire about the library.
IF YOU ARE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH FOCUSING…
Floyd Focusing Resource Center
This is a private forum-like website for those who’ve had Level 1 equivalent training in Focusing. I’ve created this as a place where we can freely connect and engage about our experiences and interests related to Focusing.
There are chat rooms to explore Process Model theory, the neuroscience that is happening in our brains as we Focus, various ways of cultivating radical acceptance, embodiment practices, companion challenges, finding a Focusing partner and much more… This space really is to honor all of us embarking on this journey of more deeply understanding ourselves and our engagement with the world around us. Private groups can be formed here to explore applying Focusing to areas like Parenting, Social Work, Group Work, PTSD, etc. Click HERE to check it out. Contact me if you would like to join.
Emerging Focuser Gatherings
This is a place to share Focusing experience and conversation! Come whether you have been practicing or not. Bring your experiences, questions and concerns about Focusing or just come to experience a Guided Inquiry into what is most wanting your awareness right now. And maybe you drop in just for Focusing fellowship! I will facilitate a Guided Focusing Inquiry for about 20 min, check in for shares, answer questions, share resources and invite other experienced Focusers to chime in.
This space asks that you have had ‘some’ experience with Focusing – that could be a class or a Guided session, some inner exploration of the concepts. I’ve scheduled these for second Friday evenings of each month (skipping June & August) of this year at 8pm EST.
(Note: if any Focusing Trainers or experienced Focusers would like to facilitate this for June and August – please contact me. We could keep it running!)
2018 dates are Feb 9, March 9, April 13, May 11, July 13, Sept 14, Oct 12, Nov 9, Dec 14
