FiCP Open House Sept 2014

Find Out How Our Latest Program for Healing Professionals Can Benefit Your Practice

Sign up to get your seat in our informational teleconference about the Focusing in Clinical Practice Training Program and we’ll:

  • Share with you the powerful, immediate benefits Focusing can bring to your work with clients without having to teach them a technique or even let them know you’re using one.
  • Give you a firsthand experience of the way listening from a Focusing perspective opens doorways to fresh information and possibilities for new ways forward, even by just incorporating a few select words.
  • Demonstrate the client-centered, somatic orientation that informs the heart of Focusing work and creates an ideal environment for intrinsic change by finding the place inside that is free of frozen structures and allows shifts to happen more easily.

Join us on September 4 at 10am Pacific time for a Free* Teleconference Open House where we’ll introduce you the benefits of Living a Focusing Life. Register now to secure your spot. (*toll charges may apply).
