Introduction to Focusing: Finding New Meanings in Your Life

4 Focusing classes based on Eugene Gendlin’s work for beginners and those with some experience in Jamaica Plain*

Sunday Afternoons from 3:00-5:00 PM
Sept. 8, Oct. 6, Nov. 3, Dec. 9

Cost is $180 for the series

As taught by psychologist and philosopher Eugene Gendlin, Focusing is a gentle, compassionate and non-judgmental way of listening to our own inner experience and listening to others. It is a special kind of awareness, different from our everyday awareness, that emerges when we pause, become present to the moment and attune to the body’s sensations.

You will learn Focusing with others and improve your skills as a listener. You may explore how you might use this process to make change in your life, find what is truly alive for you, relieve stress, develop more empathy for yourself and others, or touch into the spiritual dimension of your life.

There will be experiential exercises and didactic material in each session. The class will offer time for practice, demonstration, discussion and learning from one another.
