Online Focusing Skills Course

Online Focusing Skills Course

Learn Focusing Skills Face To Face online

The online Focusing Skills Course gives you the basic skills of Focusing and being a Focusing Companion..

It works by Zoom conference call. You can hear and see the others on the call.

After introductions and meeting the others on the course, you learn the specifics of Focusing, see a demonstration or do an exercise and get instructions for practice. Then you ring off and call one of the other people for a short practice session, or we may practice in the whole group.

After each session we come back together as a group, hear how it went, any feedback and learning to share and further discussions.

TAE helps you to articulate something that you have always found difficult to say, and yet you know something about this subject, because you have experienced it, and your body knows what it is.
