to paraphrase e e cummings,

it’s just spring, and the world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful…


Seeds that have lain dormant all winter are bursting open, sending down roots and sending up shoots; buds are bursting forth…

We will sense into our bodies… sensing what is living in there that wants even more opportunity to come alive…

We will discover the remarkable power of the shared field that we generate together, a safe and welcoming environment that supports us in sensing even more deeply what is wanting to emerge from within…

In this way, we will find our living YES!

Wholebody Focusing starts with sensing our grounded connection with the Earth.

In the peaceful beauty of this emerald woodland,

We will build on the nurturing energy of the NW Gathering,

Allowing the natural environment to amplify our felt sense of grounding.

Sinking in deeply to this bodily feeling of connection, we can each gain a deeper familiarity with our own unique style of grounding.

Together, let us discover new ways to allow the Springtime energies of this 'green and pleasant land' to help us weave that 'just right' place in which the shy or exuberant life unfolding inside us feels welcome to emerge.

In this place of quiet, we are able to notice the subtle forms that this unfolding takes. Wholebody Focusing gives us ways to recognize the spontaneous gestures and other expressions of life force emerging from within.

Let us feel the joy and wonder of discovery as we support each other in recognizing the particular ways in which our own living body is communicating.

Join us for this unique opportunity to experience the Aliveness that emerges in an environment so safe, supportive and welcoming…

Everyone is welcome!  This event is designed to feel comfortable to those with no prior experience of Wholebody Focusing, as well as an exciting opportunity for experienced Wholebody Focusers to explore growing edges.
