POF - Prayer Oriented Focusing Workshop

  • 6 Mar 2022
  • Online

Prayer Oriented Focusing (POF) opens new pathways into what we call ‘prayer consciousness’ as well as novel insights into the focusing process; insights that emerged from Gendlin’s philosophy and - to our surprise - from his interest during his final years with the connection between human beings and what he termed The Larger System.

The aim of Prayer Oriented Focusing (POF) is to support the Focuser’s essential life processes, and to reformulate and refresh pathways into the intimate experience of being in the world.

Presented by The International Focusing Institute - Dana Ganihar and Baruch Brenner

Prayer Oriented Focusing - (POF) opens new pathways into what we call ‘prayer consciousness’ as well as novel insights into the Focusing process; insights that emerged from Gendlin’s philosophy and - to our surprise - from his interest during his final years with the connection between human beings and what he termed The Larger System.

The aim of Prayer Oriented Focusing (POF) is to support the Focuser’s essential life processes, and to reformulate and refresh pathways into the intimate experience of being in the world.

POF practices enable not only the creation of a clearer perception of life situations, but invites humans to become co-creators in the on-going process of being-in-creation.

In a way, Prayer Oriented Focusing is not a new system. We could say that POF takes Gendlin’s philosophy and the Focusing steps towards a possible living edge.

POF invites us to open up the ancient and enigmatic word ‘prayer’ and its breathtaking potential in novel terms, as well as to open the Focusing process to new possibilities.

In this workshop we will:

Explore core ideas in the approach

Practice basic movements of POF

Share details concerning upcoming learning opportunities

Open space for questions and discussion
