An Online Class Facilitated by Kati Kimchi
Part of The Focusing Highlights Series
(Class will be recorded for participants. No special computer skill or equipment required.)
Sexuality is not an easy subject, but the encounter between Focusing and issues related to our sexuality creates space for healing. The qualities of Focusing allow very shy, subtle and hidden places to be experienced safely and at their own pace. Through case studies from her clinic, Kati will share about the complexity and beauty of this combination.
The purpose of this webinar is to create an open space which allows for encounters with subjects that rarely take center stage; those subjects that contain so much pain, while at the same time our deepest pleasure and vitality are just waiting for us to sit with them and listen.
The crossing between Focusing and sexuality will be explored in three circles: as a personal experience, as a sexual-interaction act, and as a movement of passion in the world. There will be a writing exercise and time for questions and sharing.
It is Kati’s hope that in this class, together we will be able to be curious about these subjects that arouse fear, shame, and guilt. This webinar is suitable for those who have learned and are familiar with Focusing and wish to have a courageous glimpse into the clinical work with non-conservative materials.

The video link will be to an easy to use website called Zoom. In this webinar format, you will see the teacher and host, but you will not be seen. You will be able to ask questions during the webinar by typing them.
You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred. All registered participants will be sent a link to the video recording approximately two weeks following the course. So if you are unable to attend in person, you will still be able to hear the class.
Kati Kimchi is a Focusing Coordinator who has been teaching and facilitating Focusing at her clinic in Israel for more than 10 years.
The crossing between Focusing and sexuality was born out of her own need to explore the sensitive issues of sexuality – whether they were the subject of the meeting or naturally arising in a session. Over the years, Kati has learned that entering emotional space through issues related to sexuality enables direct contact with the deepest parts of our inner world (safety issues, communication, traumas, etc.) and lead us to a unique shift.
Kati is offering this class to support The International Focusing Institute. This live online class is pay-what-you-can. The suggested payment for US residents is $30. If you need to give less, that's fine, but we do require each participant to give something. Please give extra if you can! Thank you for supporting the Institute.
