A Focusing Approach to Writing
The TIFI Membership Committee is pleased to offer this series of Focusing Roundtables designed especially for members of the Institute. We hope that this program and those to come will afford members a valuable opportunity to engage in casual peer-to-peer conversation with other members who share Focusing-related interests.
What to expect: Each Focusing Roundtable is designed to promote informal peer-to-peer conversation. Rather than acting as expert presenters, the Hosts will serve as conversation moderators to encourage sharing and exploration of the topics from the participants’ own perspectives. All participants’ sharings are welcome and valuable, no matter what level of experience or knowledge you have on the topic. To preserve the nature of informal conversation, the program will be offered live only and no recordings will be available. Registration is limited to 20 members on a first-come, first served basis. Participants are encouraged to create follow up opportunities for connection among themselves after the Roundtable.

This Roundtable will be of particular interest to members who want to explore ways to combine Focusing with writing. It will provide a nurturing, supportive space which invites participants to share their prior experiences and to experiment further with combining Focusing and writing. Some possible questions we might explore together are...
- How are you already bringing Focusing into your own writing?
- How can Focusing inspire, deepen, inform, and facilitate the writing process?
- How can Focusing be used to enhance and enrich your writing process going forward?
If these questions intrigue you, we hope you will join us for this Roundtable. Bring your own experiences, questions and curiosity—and a pen and paper!
