While healing and medicine are both connected to health, they work in different ways and at different levels. When we deepen our understanding and practice of healing, we enhance our wellbeing and open new opportunities to help ourselves in times of difficulty. Healing is a way of life, it is a way of being that brings awareness, deep listening and caring to our very existence.

In this course, we will define the differences between healing and medicine, and explore our innate ability to heal. By making a crossing between Focusing, ancient knowledge and contemporary science, a new map can emerge to expand our natural healing ability. Reawakening access to the multiple levels and dimensions of wisdom held within, we will build new ways to empower ourselves and become active participants and healers of our lives.

This series is open to all who have some Focusing experience. The class size is limited and will be recorded for registrants only.

Because of the nature of the course, we encourage live attendance at all four classes.

Course Outline

This online course includes: meditations, lectures, experiential exercises and Focusing in pairs. Participants will receive written material and home practices. The themes of the four classes are briefly described below.

Session 1 (March 20): We will build a map of our levels of consciousness by using the ancient Chakra map. Each of the participants will be invited to choose something in his/her life that is calling for healing.

Session 2 (April 3): We will connect to our personal ‘healing bag’ and learn how to use it.

Session 3 (April 17): We will explore working with the heart consciousness. Participants will be required to bring something from nature that represents unconditional love for them.

Session 4 (May 1): We are part of nature, part of the universe. How can this connection sustain us?


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. So, you will have it for review or if you must miss a class, you will still be able to view it.
