Go For It! Focusing on Action
A new 5-week phone course with Helene Brenner
Who This Class Is For:
Are you yearning to take a major step forward in your life? Is something inside of you saying it’s time to get moving and make something happen? And if you are a therapist or coach, would you like to learn a set of skills to help your clients weave together inner and outer transformation, so that positive change occurs on all levels?
Now is your chance.
What We Will Be Doing:
This unique course is a laboratory in which we'll explore together the intersection of Focusing and action for ourselves and our clients. In the first class we’re going to listen to our Inner Voice and Larger Self to choose a project – the growth that our organism is saying is right for us right now. Then we’re going to use Focusing and Inner Voice techniques, as well as partnership exercises and group support, to create “action experiments” to actively and intentionally move us forward, step by “Focused” step, in the project we’ve chosen.
This fun, interactive, and challenging course will offer you a process and set of valuable skills to noticeably make progress in pursuing your goals and dreams – and, if you are a therapist or coach, to bring it to your clients. Let’s find out what happens when we spend five weeks really listening and following the voice inside that wants something new. Who knows where it may lead?
- Sensing your goals and "change projects" from the inside out
- Exploring action as "a part of you"
- Learning how the neuro-biological drives for expansion and security interact, and how to prevent these two drives from canceling each other out
- Discovering the power of 10 degree changes
- Experiencing how action and Focusing inform each other
Experience the potency of witnessing and structured support.
Pre-requisite: Focusing Level One with any Inner Relationship Focusing teacher.
