Facilitator Beatrice Blake: I’ve been a Certified Focusing Trainer since 2000. I originally studied Focusing with Robert Lee, Joan Klagsbrun and Neil Friedman and went on to study Thinking at the Edge with its founder, Dr. Eugene Gendlin, and with Kye Nelson, Nada Lou and Evelyn Fendler Lee.

Peggy Smith was my first Nonviolent Communication teacher 2006. When I arrived in El Salvador in 2007, people were more attracted to NVC than Focusing, so I have used it as a doorway to teaching Focusing for the last 10 years.

NVC has given me confidence in dealing with conflict in my personal life, and I love hearing examples of how it smooths and heals the lives of my students in El Salvador. NVC is a wonderful theory developed by Marshall Rosenberg. It can be greatly enhanced by getting the felt sense of situations, as we do in Focusing.
