Focusing Highlights: Meditation For Focusers

  • 14 Nov 2022
  • 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
  • Online


Have you ever wondered where Focusing ends and meditation begins (or vice versa)? Do you struggle to meditate consistently? Is your meditation difficult to enjoy – or not quite as delicious as you wish? As a long-term meditator and Focuser (and teacher of both), Elizabeth is fascinated by the processes which take us on our inner journeys. Her approach is flexible and inclusive, in a nutshell, uncovering ways to “meditate as you can, not as you can’t”.

Have you ever wondered where Focusing ends and meditation begins (or vice versa)? Do you struggle to meditate consistently? Is your meditation difficult to enjoy – or not quite as delicious as you wish? As a long-term meditator and Focuser (and teacher of both), Elizabeth is fascinated by the processes which take us on our inner journeys. Her approach is flexible and inclusive, in a nutshell, uncovering ways to “meditate as you can, not as you can’t”.


Elizabeth also weaves creativity into her meditation. She draws on poetry and colour to help you plunge happily into your inner world. Her recent book “Journeys to the Deep: A Gentle Guide to Mindfulness Meditation” illustrates this approach. Taking time to reflect and muse after a meditation, she suggests ways in which mini-solo-focusing just after meditating can enrich our meditation and our Focusing, and help us to process and absorb the shifts, transitions, and transformations that we experience – but sometimes miss.


The webinar will include guided meditation experiences, presentation, and time for questions and group sharing. These are designed for any level. It is relevant whether you are just setting out, as a Focuser or meditator, or if you are in need of a meditation refresher or wishing to go deeper with an existing practice.


Elizabeth English draws on over four decades of daily meditation practice, and two decades of Focusing – and is a teacher of both. She also weaves in other approaches, including Nonviolent Communication and Somatic Experiencing (trauma therapy). Her understanding is enriched by her doctoral research in Sanskrit meditation texts, her ordination within a western Buddhist tradition and her current post teaching secular mindfulness meditation at Cambridge University. She spends much of her time singing and writing. Her first ‘gentle guide’ to meditation was published this year: Journeys to the Deep: A Gentle Guide to Mindfulness Meditation. She lives in Cambridge (UK) with her cocker spaniel, Cherub. www.elizabethenglish.life
