Focusing: Clearing a Space

Clearing a Space is the first step of Focusing. 
Focusing is a process of inner awareness rooted in the idea that if we pay attention in a particular way to our body-based feeling called a “felt sense”, we can begin to communicate with our beings in a way that helps us to find the “life-forward” energy in our lives.
  • Want to feel a little more clarity in your life?
  • Have you considered being more compassionate to yourself?
  • Do you want to get some perspective so you can get more spacious and see new options?

Connecting-in, especially when you are experiencing difficult feelings, can be tough. Yet, if you ever feel hijacked by your feelings or if you ever numb or distract yourself so that you don’t get overwhelmed, gently sensing into the inner world is exactly what is often needed to release some of that tension. 

Because we often avoid going inside, we will intend to want to meditate, but never scratch it off the list because there is just something that keeps many of us from turning inward. 

Clearing a space may be helpful if this is the case, because it offers a new way to get curious about what we are holding inside and to work with new skills, rather than to “just sit with it” while the emotion grows.

Through taking this workshop you will:

  • Dip a toe into a new process for inner-work.
  • Begin to develop trust in your own capacity to self-regulate. 
  • Perhaps meet with the inner defences that have been getting in the way between you and your quiet intuitive voice. 

This is NOT the right workshop for you if:

  • Are prone extreme anxiety, panic attacks and clinical depression and do not have accessible community or therapeutic support.

This workshop is educational and not meant as therapy. In the case difficult feelings are stirred up, we highly recommend therapy support from a Registered Clinical Counsellor.
