Steps to a Focusing Journal


This webinar introduces a way to support your interior process by working with a flexible visual template for self-guided Focusing.

Presented by The International Focusing Institute

September 9, 2023

This webinar introduces a way to support your interior process by working with a flexible visual template for self-guided Focusing.

Dana Hercbergs illustration This practice is different from "regular" journaling - where composing sentences can sometimes feel fraught or keep you from touching the deeper core that wants movement or relief. Dana will provide a template that allows participants to adjust and re-invent as needed.

We will begin by clearing a space on the page in a benevolent container to hold your process. We will pause to witness what we are holding, select affirming words, and hone the potential to take the process deeper. There will be space for reflection and sharing how this practice works for you.

Please bring blank paper, writing implements, and colors that you like to work with.

All are welcome to attend. Some experience with Focusing will be helpful but not required.

Dana Hercbergs was introduced to Focusing in 2018 while completing an ethnographic ?monograph on communal narratives in Jerusalem. The restorative potential of attentive presence drew her to train in Inner-relationship Focusing and presently, in clinical social work. Bringing together analytical thinking and creativity with the ?felt sense, Dana uses illustration and narrative to symbolize daily experience and personal journeys. She draws inspiration from Thinking at the Edge and uses principles from the Art of Convening and Resonant Sensing to promote supportive spaces for people to engage and grow together. Dana is a Focusing-Oriented Professional and holds a PhD in Folklore.

This live online class is pay-what-you-can. The suggested payment for US residents is $30.
