“There is a kind of bodily awareness that profoundly
influences our lives and can help us reach personal goals.”
(E Gendlin)

Focusing helps us access this awareness and guides us in
our creativity, decision-making and emotional wisdom.

What is Focusing?

Focusing is self-discovery – it is a special way of paying attention to ourselves, so that we sense the whole feeling about situations or issues in our lives.  We become our own good listener and learn to tap into our inner resources.  It’s not about learning a technique – more about exploring a new way of being with ourselves.

It’s a natural, gentle, and deep process, and many people find that they sense a deeper connection with their own lives, and that they make wiser choices in their lives.

Focusing is most often a two-way process, with a Focuser and a Listener, and part of learning Focusing skills is to learn to be a good listener for others too.

Focusing

Would you like to learn how to

  • trust your intuition more
  • solve problems creatively, and make decisions confidently
  • cope more effectively with conflict, change, overload and other sources of stress
  • move through blocks and difficulties in your life with gentleness and kindness
  • enhance your creativity
  • make lifestyle changes?

Focusing can help with all of these.

Yoga

Yoga can be adapted for anyone’s needs, whether you are active, sedentary, or limited by illness or disability.  It’s important that you find a style and teacher that suit you.

And you don’t need to be flexible when you start!

Mind-Body Connection

I call my newsletter Mind-Body Connection, because I find that both Focusing and Yoga can be transformative in sensing into the connections that are there between mind and body, and we often don’t see or dismiss. When we first learn Yoga, it can take a while to move from our need to ‘get it right’, and find out how to make our bodies form a triangle or an eagle, say.  Apart from not injuring yourself, it doesn’t matter too much – Yoga can be adapted so that it benefits all people, no matter their age, flexibility, strength, or any other restriction[...]
All procrastination is fear

All procrastination is fear

This is a quotation from author Elizabeth Gilbert.  She goes on to say, "Anything that you do that stops you from the work that is gnawing at you, the work that wants to be made through you, the creative project that is begging you to realise it, ... anything you do that blocks that is fear." How do we move through this fear, this fear that affects us all at one time or another?  And how do we find out what is at the root of the fear? It could be about showing the artwork that you've been working on in your back[...]
