Focusing or Felt Sensing can be done in different ways; and one is to see what comes and then stay with whatever shows up in the moment. And we might say that because it is one body and everything is connected, then if one thing shifts, something else might very well shift too.
Yet, sometimes it feels a little unsatisfying when it seems like there’s always a new or different thing that comes up in each of our partnership sessions. We might find many wonderful things from our partnerships, among others the relief of having had some time to sense into ourselves, and we might also wonder if anything changes at all.
This 12 week course explores and provides different approaches to how to use Felt Sensing for staying with a life issue over some time.
- Maybe you have a life issue that seems too hard to even approach. It might feel messy and chaotic and seem to have too many parts to it
- You might have a life issue that you’ve worked on, over and over for a long time, and it feels persistent and like it won’t really change
- Maybe you have discovered something about yourself, recently, that feels bigger than one session
- You might wish for a long term Sensing Partnership
- Maybe you just need a framework within which someone helps keep you on track with a topic over time
- Maybe you feel like you only learned to ‘see what is there’, and you’re wondering if it wouldn’t be possible to be more ‘goal-oriented’ with Felt Sensing
The course is based on Felt Sensing/Focusing partnership, and hence the requirement to attend is The Felt Sensing and With-Sensing (Focusing and Listening)-traning, or equivalent, with me or another certified Focusing Teacher.
Minimum of particpipants: 4, maximum 8.
- Sharing a topic/issue/problem without sharing the content – “having it” in the space of yo”u with another person”
- Everything I “know” about this persistent life topic of mine, and where does it seem to show up in my life?
- Why stay with something over time, and what might be in the way of that?
- Sensing and getting to know the different parts, places and “somethings” involved and the relationship between those
- The “all of that” and “the more” as opposed to the seeming solutions we so far “know” about
- “The space of not knowing” and “letting something come”
- Becoming aware of, making space for, and fully enjoying the tiniest little changes
- The “me”, the “having” of this problem/topic/issue, and resources around you
- Time – time pressure, and what is time, really?
- Theoretical sharings and reflections
- Group discussions and process sharings (not content sharing)
- Partnership in class
- Partnership between classes
