In this webinar, we shall take a two-stage journey: Stage 1: From shades of aloneness to shades of togetherness; and Stage 2: From I to we without losing our boundaries.
Presented by The International Focusing Institute
January 19, 2022
Imagine being really present in the here-and-now…enjoying interpersonal moments with the freedom to be yourself, to feel good – to experience surprise and delight instead of repetitive, stressful patterns of interaction.
Social Oriented Focusing (SOF) teaches us to untie the KNOTS and NOTS that interfere with relating to others, enabling us to overcome blocks, fears, and automatic behaviors.
In this webinar, we shall take a two-stage journey:
Stage 1: From shades of aloneness to shades of togetherness
We will sense how situations affect us and our openness. With tools to identify our position, we will experience the different positions that can take us from shades of aloneness to togetherness.
Stage 2: From I to we without losing our boundaries
Experimenting in moving from the 'I space' to the 'we space' and beyond without losing our boundaries, we will sense what happens inside us when we move from being in front of each other (me & you) to being together (us/we).
There will be a presentation, guided experiences, and time for sharing and questions.
All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful but is not required.
