Focusing Roundtable - On Setting Up A Reading Group To Explore Gendlin’s Philosophy

What We Learned That You Might Find Useful

In this Roundtable we will share our experience of being in a reading group and how we worked together. We will offer some guidelines or suggestions that might be useful if you are interested in setting up a similar group.

Presented by The International Focusing Institute

Some years ago, a small group of us came together to explore Gendlin’s philosophy. We were re-evaluating our approach as Focusing teachers and wanted to deepen our understanding to bring a greater depth to both our teaching and practice. We knew something about Gendlin’s philosophy but came to it as curious enthusiasts rather than experts. That was the starting point.

We found that, as our understanding deepened, we began to experience greater clarity and confidence in the way we approached our teaching. Our growing interest was supported by our participation in workshops and seminars on Gendlin’s philosophy. The richness of Gene’s work now felt more accessible.

In this Roundtable we will share our experience of being in a reading group and how we worked together. We will offer some guidelines or suggestions that might be useful if you are interested in setting up a similar group. During our time together we will read part of a text to allow us to experience something of how a reading group might function. We hope further suggestions will emerge which will be useful for new reading groups.

If you’ve been taking part in such a reading group, we hope you will share your insights and suggestions as a way of encouraging other groups to form.
