MORE Than MINDFULNESS: Getting Focusing Into Schools
Friday, July 28, 2017 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm Eastern Time
(morning of July 29 in Australia)
An Online Class Facilitated by Leonie Stewart
Part of The Focusing Highlights Series
(no special computer skill or equipment required)
Focusing is a “MORE than MINDFULNESS” way of being. Leonie wanted to get Focusing into schools and she did this by creating a holistic 10-week program called MORE than MINDFULNESS (MtM). MtM teaches students to pause, listen, reflect, communicate better, be kind, intentional, mindful and grateful and also learn to Focus. She has successfully implemented it in 5 schools. In this webinar, Leonie will share her MtM program. She will share her story of getting Focusing into schools, the joys and challenges of working with students and teachers, as well as lead participants in 4 Focusing exercises that she uses in the classroom. This class is open to all and would suit anyone interested in teaching Focusing to a larger group, and especially to children.

The video link will be 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. 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.
Leonie Stewart is a Certified Focusing-Oriented and Emotion-Focused therapist, a teacher of Focusing and mindfulness, a sports coach, and a mother. She created the MORE Than MINDFULNESS (MtM) program for schools. As Gene Gendlin wrote about “giving therapy away,” Leonie knows her life’s purpose is to give Focusing away to as many young people as she can via the MtM Program. She hopes to expand her program with more Focusing and mindfulness teachers. The wish is for Focusing, mindfulness and other life skills in MtM to be systematically taught in schools, so that young people may increase their inner resources, resilience, and wellbeing. Her program website is www.morethanmindfulness.com.au
Leonie Stewart is offering this class as a fundraiser for The International Focusing Institute. This live online class is pay-what-you-can. The suggested payment for US residents is $30.
