Courses to Learn Focusing

Feelings are a part of life… but they often take us over and then we do things we later regret. It doesn’t have to be like that.

Our introductory e-course will give you a new practice each day to help you Get Bigger Than What’s Bugging You.

Sign up today for a new way forward that doesn’t end in blowing up or withdrawing when you get hit by strong emotions.


Get bigger

This program will teach you the Focusing process and how to apply it to your daily life.

In SHIFT, you step into Ann’s video classroom where she takes you through learning Focusing in simple steps. You learn how to pause and get a larger sense of what’s happening in the moment, bring acceptance to the things you experience throughout your day (feelings, thoughts, etc), and apply the process of Focusing to decisions, releasing blocks, inner critics, and more.

You can get started with this affordable course as soon as you register.

Are you looking for a long-term solution that really works to bring greater happiness, clarity, and freedom from suffering?

We know you want more out of life. To be able to embrace the day. To experience acceptance and joy in your relationships. To find purpose and fulfillment in your work. With our in-depth training program, you’ll come away with skills to support you in any part of your life: your relationships, your career, your community, and beyond.

You can be the hero in your life’s story. Let us be your guide…

After that...

Going Further with Focusing

Once you’ve completed Your Path to Lasting Change, you’ll be able to use Focusing anywhere, anytime you need it to find your calm when the going gets tough. Your training will empower you to live life on your own terms: confidently, compassionately, and clearly.

And if you’d like to go further, for example, make a career out of Focusing, or just get continued support, we have additional courses and programs for you. Keep scrolling to see more in-depth programs for our Advanced Focusers.

Certification with Ann

If you’d like to turn Focusing into a profession, our two-year Certification Program is for you.

After completing Part One and Part Two of Your Path to Lasting Change, you might have been inspired and helped by Focusing and you would like to share it with others.

Becoming a Certified Focusing Teacher/Practitioner is a possibility for someone from any walk of life. You do not need to be a therapist or have other formal credentials in order to become a Focusing Teacher/Practitioner. You just need to go through the training process and demonstrate your ability to provide safe and empowering Focusing experiences for others, both one-to-one and in groups.

We have two courses for continuing on with your personal development following completion of Your Path to Lasting Change Parts One and Two (or four Levels).

Focusing: The Second Year is for you if you want to be more confident and more skilled with your own Focusing and as a Focusing partner. You’d like Focusing to feel second nature, to have it “in your bones.” You’d like help and support to apply Focusing to long-term issues like blocks and persistently uncomfortable feelings. You want to be able to “live Focusing” every day.

Getting Free is co-taught by Ann Weiser Cornell and Barbara McGavin. Barbara and Ann created their Untangling™ process when they were facing impossibly tough life issues that resisted all attempts at change. Dive deep into Untangling™ and get their guidance through the impossibly tough issues you’re facing… so you can live the life you long to live.
