Embodying Change



Together, we, Judy and Beth have created this day of discovery. We welcome Focusers at any level to engage with didactic as well as experiential activities around embodying change. 

We will approach the day, "bodyfully," encouraging an embodied self held in a conscious Focusing-oriented environment as we explore and discover how change is present in you, in the present moment.

During the day we will:

  • move and dance inviting deeper connection with your sensing, moving body and with the group's energy

  • learn about change theory and the change spiral 

  • create a collage and sense into and embody the images that have meaning for us

  • throughout, there will be opportunities to interact in partnership and groupings
