CONFERENCE 2000 in HUNGARY
“Children’s Inner & Outer Peace”

OPENING with MARTA STAPERT
(Initiator of Children's Focusing Corner)

Learning to know each other

Whatever we do in this Conference is something you can use in your situation with children, sometimes in a somehow changed form.
We would like to start to find ourselves a place in the middle of the 68 people  we are with.
We are here to enjoy each other, to learn from each other, to accept each other who we are and how we are, to give and to receive, what can be in effect the same.

This is a play without words …
to be able to let your impressions come in more inside …
So don’t speak …
make a quiet place inside …
feel your chair …
feel your breathing …

now look who is next to you …
or in front …
sometimes you may look at each other…
sometimes not …
make connection with your bodily felt feeling about this person …
if it is enough you turn to another person near to you …
look …
sense …
smell this person …

now very quietly take your chair and put it in the circle …
stay without words …
and sit down …

look around the circle …
keep quiet …
feel in your Felt sense how it feels in this big circle…

go across the room to a person you would like to look at in the same quiet Felt-sensed way …
if it is enough walk quietly to another person …
from your Felt sense touch him or her with your fingertips …
look carefully and feel with your Felt sense if it is the right way you are doing this …

now go to a person who is unknown to you and whom it is taking some courage to go to …

feel what is happening in your body …
acknowledge this …
you could say to this feeling “you may be there …
I hear you” …

now feel if you can touch with your fingertips this person somewhere…

now quietly go around and look without words to as much possible persons …
start to shake hands …
and take the names in you can read …
and stay connected with what it is doing inside you…

stay quiet now for a moment where your are …
everybody who speaks Hungarian, or a little bit Hungarian …
or understands a little bit …
comes into this corner …
the other ones go quiet in the other corner…
