Conference 2002

Summary

Seed

Focusing is the safe energy of reflecting and accepting the uniqueness of ourselves and others, especially of children

Focusing with children takes place with utmost respect, tenderness, self-awareness, caring, holding, even when they say "no"

Focusing is the safe energy of reflecting and accepting the uniqueness of ourselves and others: give it to children

We want to be with babies, children and adolescents as they are adults, acknowledging and trusting their inner wisdom

Following our own felt sense , true to our self then our work is going to the right

As focusing allows parts to meld into wholeness, it makes wholeness to be, also for children

Focusing gives hope for a better world for children, being there for the children, to create life more in a focusing way

To keep open space for our inner child and for the children

We will nurture our curiosity to keep connected to home and outside -- to build bridges

Caring the nourishment we wish to continue, holding, while we continue the connection as a community

 

Nurturing

Our most important task is to build a bridge to those who don't yet understand what focusing is and what is happening in the

focusing process, especially for children.

We want to live it in daily living, first with self, then with family, then with community,

Children will be ok with focusing, so let us be there for the children to make things more in a focusing way

We will trust our inner teacher to make available our focusing attitude towards parents, caretakers, teachers and children

We will teach focusing to parents caretakers, teachers and others

We will teach focusing to children and guide them in focusing with tenderness and respect

We will give training / guidance, training Focusing-trainers and TNT's where needed

We will write down what is already there in speaking

We will continue to look for people and to nurture the seed of the next conference

We will stay connected with the earth and cosmos to be able to nourish the flow of life in all of us in particularly where children are involved
