Our grief was never meant to be carried alone. Before these modern death and grief phobic times, humans shared their grief in ceremony and community.
It seems to me that our loss of ways to express and receive grief in community and therefore our inability to welcome it inside of us is wreaking havoc. We stay numb and disconnected from a world that is literally unravelling in front of us. Grief is an essential act of honouring what is important to us.

How can we learn a new way to be with and welcome grief in a new (and yet old) way and how can the gifts of Focusing support us in this?

On this free webinar, we will explore these topics and more:

  • What our grief needs to flow and move through us
  • The many kinds of grief we are carrying in these times
  • How we might welcome grief together
  • How focusing could support us in the process

Open to anyone

It is hard to turn towards difficult and stuck situations, and we often do our best to avoid them. But might we be turning away from some opportunity?

Perhaps you find it hard to not binge watch netflix… or you find that you avoid some difficulty or challenge in your life? Or maybe you long to make a change but struggle to know how to start?
For the last 15 years I have been using Focusing to explore the most stuck and difficult areas of my life (and still am!) Focusing has given me ways of being with these aspects of myself that have brought both freedom and deep compassion. This free seminar will share some of the gems of that journey. Based strongly on the work of Ann Weiser Cornell and Barbara McGavin we will touch on some of these themes and more:

  • Why everything inside needs welcoming
  • The map of a “tangled places”
  • The treasure that parts carry

Open to anyone

Do you find that despite your best intentions, you can end up losing it with your children and saying and doing things you regret?

Do you feel guilty after losing it with your child and resolve not to do it again, but then it happens again….and again?

Would you like to feel less reactive and more able to meet parenting challenges with compassion and wisdom?

If these apply to you, you are definitely not alone! These are common parenting experiences. But the good news is that there are ways of working through these reactions and reducing the likelihood of them happening again. Focusing is a great approach for this!

On this free 60 minute seminar we will explore how Focusing can help us to find deeper connection with ourselves and with our children. We will explore central themes around:

  • Identifying and disentangling triggers.
  • The core need for empathic connection - both within and without.
  • Tools from connected parenting approaches that fit with Focusing.

Open to anyone - whether you know Focusing or not. Aimed at parents new and old, caregivers and anyone working with children.
