About Beatrice Blake
I originally studied Focusing with Drs. Robert Lee, Joan Klagsbrun and Neil Friedman, and went on to study Thinking at the Edge and the Philosophy of the Implicit with its founder, Dr. Eugene Gendlin, and with Kye Nelson, Nada Lou and Evelyn Fendler Lee. I became a Focusing Trainer in 2000 and have studied with Gene and many other members of the Focusing community. I’m a Certifying Coordinator with The International Focusing Institute.
I envision a world in which children are raised to trust their felt sense of situations by parents who know how to listen to their own felt sense. Focusing is the birthright of human beings.
Focusing does not have to be wielded by a “healer”. It is a life-long exploration that anyone can practice by slowing down and listening in a friendly way to what is going on inside. You can get a feel for it by trying a Listening Partnership.
I have had many opportunities to define and redefine my role throughout my life. Focusing and Thinking at the Edge have helped me understand that the times when I felt lost, stuck, or not knowing my direction forward, it was because life was urging me to explore something that I could not have put into words. Now I know that listening to my felt sense is my life force guiding me to more life!
I’d love to accompany you as you explore your next steps with Thinking at the Edge, or as you learn the combination of Empathic Communication and Focusing in Generating a Culture of Peace. I can support you in gaining confidence as a Focusing partner so that you can be part of The International Focusing Institute’s Partnership Network. That way you can always find someone to share Focusing and Listening with.
I am especially interested in helping people become Certified Focusing Trainers. Please let me know if you are ready to take that step.
