The art of self kindness
Do you struggle with self judgement and criticism
Would you like to feel at home in your own skin?
What if you had some simple, everyday tools for being kinder towards yourself?

This free seminar will share some gems from an embodied reflective practice known as "Focusing" This practice gives us a way to "be with" our feelings and emotions without being overwhelmed by them and opens up a path to radical self kindness, where we can welcome in and be curious about even the most difficult of experiences. We will explore:

  • How to "be with" our feelings
  • How to meet our "inner critics"
  • How to turn towards what we find difficult
  • How to find kindness in tough places

Tuesday 13th March 7.30-8.30pm

All seminars are held on "Zoom": an online video platform. which is free. Download here and register below.

Turning towards the world
Wednesday January 24th 2018
The world is without doubt in crisis... ecologically, socially and politically. Can we sense something of this in our direct experience? And if so how might we meet that? and how can meet all the feelings and responses that come there? What does Focusing have to offer this huge and often overwhelming situation?
Steps to radical inner change
Tuesday January 16th 2018
Sometimes it seems like it is impossible to change our deepest habits and patterns. Perhaps we long for a different way of living or being but no matter what we do, we never achieve it? Or we make a big change and then rebel against it a few weeks later? How can we find a sustainable and holistic way of making big changes... in small and achievable steps.
Freedom from ego...
Thursday January 11th 2018
The term "ego" is used in so many contexts, most often negatively, like something we should not have or work to get rid of. But is this useful or even true? Might there be a more compassionate way to relate to what we call "ego"..
The secret language of the body - Focusing and dreams:
Wednesday August 30th 2017
What can dreams tell us about our life? How can Focusing help with understanding them? Might there be a way to explore them in a new way that brings clarity and change in our lives?
Includes demonstration.
Navigating a life:
Tuesday 4th April 2017
How can we navigate the myriad decisions of life from a deeper place - not just from scared or driven parts of ourselves. How can we tune into what we deeply value and love and navigate our life from that place?
Facing uncertainty:
Wednesday 8th March 2017
Life presents us with the unknown everyday, in small and sometimes very big ways, and so often we respond with fear, anxiety and withdrawal... and a thousand ways to distract ourselves, but might we find a way of riding the waves of uncertainty with more ease, creativity and aliveness?
Freedom from self criticism:
Monday 6th Feb 2017
Many of us are plagued and crippled by what we call our "inner critic" We ignore it, threaten it, shout at it... but does this really work? We may feel at war with ourselves or at worst self hatred. Can we find a new way to relate to this aspect of human experience? Can we find peace with ourselves.
