EVENT DESCRIPTION

In this Roundtable, we will explore and experience how the Writing and Focusing processes influence each other. We will look for ways to connect Focusing to our writing practice to facilitate more clarity and depth to our writing and more ease in the process. We will discuss ways to use Focusing to get to the heart of our Writing.


Some questions we might explore together are:


How can Focusing help get to the heart of our writing?

What roles do imagery and metaphor play in Writing and Focusing?

Can we be more intentional in connecting our Writing and our Focusing practices?

Other questions may emerge from our mutual exploration during the Roundtable.


Who might be particularly interested in attending this Roundtable?


Focusers curious about the writing process, including aspiring or working novelists, poets or non-fiction writers.


CONNECTION>CONVERSATION>COMMUNITY


Each Focusing Roundtable is designed to promote informal peer-to-peer conversation. Rather than acting as expert presenters, the Hosts will serve as conversation moderators to encourage sharing and exploration of the topics from the participants’ own perspectives.  All participants’ sharings are welcome and valuable, no matter what level of experience or knowledge you have on the topic. To preserve the nature of informal conversation, the program will be offered live only and no recordings will be available. Registration is limited and on a first-come, first served basis. Participants are encouraged to create follow up opportunities for connection among themselves after the Roundtable.


The TIFI Membership Committee is pleased to offer this series of Focusing Roundtables designed especially for members of the Institute. If you are not a member, please join at http://www.focusing.org/membership, then return to this page to register. This program will afford members a valuable opportunity to engage in casual peer-to-peer conversation with other members who share Focusing-related interests.
