When My Light Meets Your Light: Connecting From The Heart With Social Oriented Focusing

  • 29 Jan 2023

When My Light Meets Your Light: Connecting From The Heart With Social Oriented Focusing

An experiential workshop with Yehudit First

 

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 workshop, we shall take a two-part journey: 1st part:  From ‘I’ space to ‘we space’ - Experimenting in moving from the 'I  space' to the 'we space', we will sense what happens inside us when we move from being in front of each other (me & you) to being together (us/we). 2nd part:  Seeing and being seen from the heart - We will explore how meeting in an SOF way from the heart nurtures both partners in the interaction, creating a place for my light to meet your light, impacting the whole relationship.

In this workshop, we shall take a two-part journey:


1st part:  From ‘I’ space to ‘we space’

Experimenting in moving from the 'I  space' to the 'we space', we will sense what happens inside us when we move from being in front of each other (me & you) to being together (us/we).

 

2nd part:  Seeing and being seen from the heart

We will explore how meeting in an SOF way from the heart nurtures both partners in the interaction, creating a place for my light to meet your light, impacting the whole relationship.

The workshop will include presentations, guided experiences, and time for sharing and questions.
