About Jan Hodgman:
I come to Focusing from a strong Buddhist background as an ordained Zen priest with 8 years of monastic training in Japan. Focusing has given me an essential piece of the mind-body Oneness “puzzle.” After years of illuminating inner work in the Zen tradition, I was enlivened with the somatic approach of Focusing, and find this way of working with issues on the conditioned level to be creative and elegant. My Focusing training has been with Reva Bernstein and Ann Weiser Cornell, and I’ve sat in on Eugene Gendlin’s Theory Construction course, an early form of Thinking at the Edge. Most recently I've been studying and serving as a nondual coach with Peter Fenner, Ph.D., author of Radiant Mind. Fenner's approach brings Eastern wisdom traditions into everyday language and accessibility, and is greatly facilitated with the Focusing modality.
Recently my appreciation of group work and the value of community in creative and spiritual endeavors has expanded exponentially. I see one of my strengths as bringing people together to support each other being fully and uniquely who we are as humans, while honoring ourselves as the clear awareness in which all of This unfolds.
