What is the felt sense? You will be introduced to the Focusing process and the particular way of Focusing Listening. This highly experiential workshop will help you learn to listen to your body and trust the wisdom it can share with you. Learn about the different ways we process our experience and how we may approach Focusing differently depending on our ‘processing style’. You will also experience the practice of Clearing a Space, which can be part of the Focusing process or used as a standalone process for managing overwhelm.
