Changing the World
Our world is changing! Old patterns don’t fit so well anymore. It is easy to rebel against what no longer fits, but responding in that way just leads to the kind of polarization we already see each day in the news. I believe that each person is a pattern maker, having an implicit intricacy and forward life direction unique to themselves. What I love about Focusing is it helps each person to find their own unique self and direction. Focusing is a different way of knowing, one that values each person in interaction with others and the environment at the same time. 
Focusing allows us to facilitate change, not through force or someone else’s belief system, but through direct contact with the natural feel of your own inner knowing. Steps for change come from that direct contact inside. That’s what I think the world needs. Then we can begin to listen to each other, across cultures, religions, gender, language, and so much more.

Learning Focusing helps you become a pattern. My training program gives therapists and other healing professionals the tools to develop their own unique ways of working with others while transforming their relationship with themselves. For those who already know Focusing well you might be interested in joining my advanced second year program. Please see below.
