Do have an idea for a way to get Focusing out into the community?
This half-price Thinking at the Edge workshop is designed to support you in moving forward with your ideas. With the successes and failures of 8 years of teaching Focusing in El Salvador, I’ve got some experience with bringing Focusing to new areas.
Session 1: Felt sensing into your vision, finding a crux sentence and one experience you have had that feels the way you want to feel with this new project. Noticing if there is anything illogical or contradictory about your ideas, and exploring those places for hidden treasures.
Session 2: Sensing into more of your life experiences and looking for the patterns in them, then crossing the patterns in order to give new insight on what you want to do.
Session 3: Looking at the resources you have now, the resources you need, and who you need to be in order to carry out this project.
Session 4: Working with words so that you are able to express yourself as clearly as possible about what you want to do.
Session 5: Going through your notes and listing the words and phrases that have the most meaning for you, then coming up with a talisman sentence that you can remember when things get tough.
On the way, I hope we can discuss many practical points about community Focusing projects, such a
- how you will go about implementing it
- how to fund it
- who your partners will be
- how much time you will devote to it
- which kinds of exercises you will use
- what you want for your students
- how you will encourage Focusing partnerships
- how you would like to relate to other community Focusing projects around the world.
There will be Focusing partnership sessions between classes.
The above topics will lead to lots of discussion, but we want to make sure that we will use felt sensing at every step of the way.
