No class on November 23rd. Registration closes Wednesday, October 31st, 2018.

Heartfelt Conversation is the Inner-Directed Movement of Wholebody Focusing, of my heart moving towards yours and yours toward mine. These sessions offer an experiential exploration of your Wholebody wisdom. Elements of Wholebody Focusing offer us developmental opportunities aligned directly with this wisdom. Through the five sessions we further develop our heartfelt connection with self and other.

This series is open to all who have some Listening or Focusing experience. Class size is limited. Because of the interactive nature of the course, please plan to attend all five classes. The sessions will be recorded so that participants can view each class a second time (or in case of an unavoidable last minute absence). You will be guided to connect with another class member by phone or online for practice at least twice during the course of the classes. These 30-60 minute connections will be supported by written guidelines and our in class experiences together.

Course Outline

The themes of the five workshops are briefly described below (November 2, 9, 16, 30 and December 7).

Session 1: Grounded Presence – Having the right to find Me Here. Inner-Directed-Movement is an expression of the Whole Body awakening,  ... listening to the stuck places in a new way.

Session 2: How is it in me while listening to another? The Bodily Experiencing of how my heart is moving towards your heart.

Session 3: Wholebody Listening: An introduction to Heartfelt Conversation that comes from Inner-directed Movement.

Session 4: Holding-Both from the heart – Sitting with the alive inner space of Not-Knowing.

Session 5: The meeting place of Heartfelt Connection and Inner-Directed Movement and exploring its language. The Wholebody is showing up more fully, now carrying the “part” that needs attention.


The video link is an easy to use format called Zoom. You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred. The class will be held in meeting format so that all participants will see the presenter and each other. (There is an option to turn off your video if you prefer and technical instructions will be given at the class start).  All registered participants will be sent a link to the video recording of each class within approximately two weeks. The recording is intended for review or in the case of an unavoidable last minute absence.
