7-week On-Line Training Seminar
Zen and Focusing both teach a way of being, the Practice of Presence to what is.
Enlightenment is not something we attain, but something we do that brings us into intimate connection with life itself.
Focusing brings to Zen a meditative way of finding, being with, reintegrating and healing wounded and split-off parts of ourselves that most spiritual practices do not address, but bypass! We are all stuck in certain views, patterns and vulnerabilities that cause us and those around us suffering. The practice of Focusing allows us to be aware of and listen to the deepest personal aspects of ourselves where the threads of emotion, memory, thought and behavior intertwine. Focusing brings gentle, compassionate, special attention to these tangles and allows for new ways of being to emerge.
You may be interested in Focusing for your own personal exploration and development. You may be interested in Focusing to improve your relationship to yourself and your partner. You may be interested in its relation to Zen and other spiritual practice. You may be interested in it as a therapeutic skill to help your clients more directly work experientially in session
