Online Focusing Skills Foundation Travel Lighter Course
British Focusing Association (BFA) Certificated
6 — 10 participants only
What do you do when you want to let go of something in you, but it is not ready to let go of you!?
How wonderful would it be if you could ‘be with yourself’ in a way that inspired flow and movement even with the most challenging of patterns, to tap into your innate body wisdom?
Learn how to Travel Lighter in your life with the Focusing Method
What is Focusing?..
It is a moment by moment way of ‘coming home’ to yourself. It is an exquisitely sensitive way of listening to or sensing what our (inner) world is telling us, often in the form of subtle feelings/sensations, in a way that is safe and gentle. It offers a creative and quietly profound way of being even with what we find most difficult and challenging. In focusing we are often pleasantly surprised by fresh or new spaces emerging, even from ‘impossibly stuck’ places. It is, in my experience a deeply satisfying process allowing my heart and soul space to breathe and be itself, to find its own sense of rightness.

Your Facilitator Simon McKibbin
I met Gene Gendlin (Founder of Focusing) in 2008 when I visited the Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York. I was moved by his quality of utter humility and ordinariness, endearing me to want to embrace this precious approach. Through it I have come to appreciate the extraordinary depth of vision that Gene had.
I am therefore touched to share this precious vision, for my own quality of balance and growth and the sanity of the world, which badly needs it! I believe I enrich Focusing through my 30 years as a Mindfulness practitioner and teacher and as a Non Violent Communication (NVC) trainer.
I am currently on placement with Cambridge University involved in a Mindfulness research project and teaching Focusing based Mindfulness to the students.
I very much look forward to sharing this precious vision with you that has does so much to enrich my own life moment by moment.
