2.5 hour Virtual Workshop
Sunday, 1:30-4pm PT

Gene Gendlin, the “father” of Focusing, said this once when addressing some clinical psychologists:

“I want to start with the most important thing I have to say.
The essence of working with another person is to be present as a living being.
And that is lucky.
Because if we had to be smart, or good, or mature, or wise,
then we’d probably be in trouble.
But what matters is not that.
What matters is to be human with another human.”

Heart and Soul centered work is also, at the core, about being a human with another human. And in the heart and art of Focusing, I’ve found nothing better that gives us permission to both let ourselves, and our clients, explore the natural beauty, wonder and messiness of all things human. But not only permission: Focusing gives us a Loving and Compassionate way to welcome all the parts of our humanity and to more deeply listen to the parts of us we’ve tried to deny, overcome, chastise or set aside. I am convinced that what you’ll learn here will help you connect more deeply to God, yourself, others and all of creation.
