Inhoud van de opleiding

The goal of this workshop is to deepen our understanding of Focusing, in theory and in practice, and then to familiarize ourselves with what I call ‘Asian Focusing Methods’, a mindfulness-based way of Focusing.  The workshop starts with demonstrations and practices of Gendlin’s ‘Focusing Short Form’.  The Focusing process will be further understood by the concept of ‘Experiencing’, and by ‘Crossing with Animals’, an exercise I developed to highlight Experiencing.  In the later part of the workshop, we will practice ‘Asian Focusing Methods’, which consists of three methods; Kansoho (observing thoughts), Kangaho (aka Kanga Focusing: observing selves) and Blue Sky Focusing.  Participants can enjoy both ‘Western-Style Focusing’ and ‘Eastern-Style Focusing’.
