Focusing nurtures the sense of direction needed to make decisions, resolve conflict, overcome emotional obstacles to learning, and avoid outcomes of bullying. Lucy will introduce her influencers over the past 38 years in this work as she transitioned from being a primary teacher in the school system to being a teacher of Focusing for children and adults of all ages.

Lucy Bowers is an Ontario certified elementary school teacher retired from the Toronto Board of Education who describes Focusing as a powerful and effective way to deal with overwhelming emotions and blocks to living in a fully alive manner. She first learned Focusing in 1984 from Ed McMahon, PhD and Peter Campbell, PhD as a process called Bio-Spirituality. This became a practice in her personal life for growth and healing. Since then, Lucy has become a pioneer in using Focusing to help children learn that the real teacher is within each of them, which has given children of all ages confidence and allowed self-esteem to grow. She adapted Focusing to be used in primary classrooms with an activity that the children fondly named "Elevator Rides". It has been her privilege to present her work throughout Canada and internationally to teachers, parents, grandparents, social workers, etc. Lucy is a Certifying Coordinator and a Certified Focusing trainer with The International Focusing Institute.
