Learning How the Body Speaks and Learning How to Listen
Focusing Level 4: The Radical Acceptance of Everything
October 8, October 15, October 22
1 PM to 4 PM Eastern Time
Classes will be taught and recorded on Zoom
In level 4 we return to the essence of Focusing: listening to and reflecting the emerging felt experience of the Focuser, from the felt perception of the Companion.
We discover that the rules we have learned are servants to the unfolding process, and we practice sensing what is needed in the moment and learn what to do when things don't go as expected.
We turn to the deeper levels of experiencing as we engage with parts that feel overwhelmed or that criticize, shame, and block action.
We learn that the radical acceptance of whatever comes, meeting it with curiosity, acceptance, and empathy, brings change.
Space is limited. Register soon!

This course is for advanced students of the Enneagram who have completed Level One, Two, and Three Focusing.
“Focusing came along just at the right time for me. I'd been exploring "bottom up" approaches to help with some deep-seated issues. The class teaching provided the necessary information, and the in-class and between classes practice made sure I actually was doing it. I highly recommend the class!” - Pamela Hanson
“Karen ’s “Focusing” workshops have been an added practice with working with a partner to come inside and experience the felt sense in my body. It has been helpful in calming my nervous system and the ever quest for greater Presence.” - Tom Baldwin
With Focusing I have experienced the intelligence of the body through the “Felt Sense” language that it speaks to me and its role in my journey to wholeness.” - Carol Jackson
“Karen’s Focusing classes are empowering, awakening my capacity to welcome and nurture what I did not know and had disowned within me. Her teaching has changed my understanding of the work I do with others.” - Eric McLellan
“We feel more than we can think, and we live more than we can feel. And if we enter into what we feel in certain genuine steps, we feel more than before. And there is much more still.”
- Eugene Gendlin, Unpublished manuscript, 1971
