Where to start if you’re interested in our trainings? One place might be our Workshop Calendar. You’ll find a complete listing of all our trainings, both in-person and on the phone, and you can sort them by date, by teacher, and by location.
If you’re ready to learn IR Focusing, the obvious place to start is with our Focusing Training Program. The Focusing Training Program consists of Level One followed by Levels Two, Three, and Four. We do teach in person sometimes, and the program can be done from anywhere in the world by phone seminar. There is also a second year of training called Focusing: The Second Year. Some of our programs are especially tailored to Therapists and Other Healing Professionals.
We offer a series of workshops to support you in using IR Focusing to address important life issues. Releasing Blocks to Action is for people who struggle with procrastination and the frustrating sense of not being able to get yourself to do what needs to be done. Getting Unblocked is a special version of that which is also an introduction to Focusing. Calm Clear Decisions is for people who struggle with decisions or who are tormented with regret from past decisions. Radical Gentleness helps transform the inner critic, and Focusing Alone is for people who’ve had some Focusing training and want more support in doing it on their own.
Demonstrations of Facilitating Focusing is a three-week phone course for those who want to listen in as Ann guides people through their very first Focusing sessions. Participants observe the demonstration and then have a chance to discuss the session afterward.
Treasure Maps to the Soul is an application of Focusing to difficult, persistently stuck life issues such as procrastination, addiction, self-criticism, depression, and obsession. The insights and methods of Treasure Maps to the Soul illuminate the patterns underneath any difficult issue. Treasure Maps to the Soul has been called “grad school for Focusing.” We require at least two Levels of the Focusing Training Program, and four Levels are recommended.
Certification and Teaching includes our trainings that are especially for those who have completed the Focusing Training Program and are in the certification training to become Focusing teachers and guides.
Especially for Therapists introduces our trainings that are geared especially to therapists and other healing professionals, both for yourself and to learn supportive skills and language for offering the work to your clients.
