Emergent Dialogue & Focusing


Focusing is the core of Emergent Dialogue, a way to dialogue with your Felt Sense and let the whole of you 'carry forward' in your living. Usually the Focuser selects an issue, but sometimes just starts with a background feeling. Partnered sessions last 30-60 minutes with a dedicated listener who does not question or diagnose your reporting. Focusing is based on the groundbreaking work of Eugene Gendlin, and is a teachable and mediated kind of mindfulness.

What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it."

You may choose to develop competency as a Focuser and Companion, which would entail at least several one-on-one coaching sessions with myself or another certified Trainer. Once we are both comfortable with your readiness, I will certify your Proficiency to the Focusing Institute so that you can join the Partnership Pool and locate a partner for free weekly, mutual support.
