Focusing is a body-oriented process of self-awareness and emotional healing. It is a natural skill that was discovered by Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago in the 1960’s. Gendlin then went on to develop a way to teach this powerful and effective way of emotional healing. The practice of Focusing is the process of listening to your body in a gentle , accepting way and hearing the messages that your inner self is sending you. Learning how to listen to these messages and being in a compassionate relationship with them is a path to connecting with your inner wisdom and can result in insight and positive life change.
The time together with our presenter, Rose Sposito, will be spent introducing the practice of Focusing; exploring, practicing and discussing how one’s spiritual journey has the capacity to become an embodied healing path and reconnect us to our intrinsic wholeness, compassion and human dignity. And, in addition, how this healing path can help benefit society as a whole.
