Focusing in Dublin

Following the International Focusing Institute's Advanced and Certification Weeklong in Tallaght Dublin, Marie McGuigan composed this beautiful poem encapuslating her experience and, I can safely say, the experience of many others. It was truly a special place to be and it is wonderfully captured in Marie's poem.


Focusing in Dublin

A tender loving caring experience - How needed is that in our world just now?

Sensate, wholesome fullness, international connections,

Cross lingual, cross generational, cross ethnicity, cross cultural

Into a listening that precedes language, experiencing without words

That power of listening, attuning, giving and receiving

Joy in the new and the familiar focusing fellows - global focusing

Guided morning yoga merging body, mind and spirit

Soul nourishment inside and out

Home groups where home felt both transformative and healing

Walking in the beauty of the resting, riveting, red sea of leaves

The Walled Garden, The Labyrinth and The Walnut Tree

Surrounded in indigenous earth culture, a forever home for all.

Ar scáth a cheile a mhaireann na daoine

Scáth means both shelter and shadow - It is in each other's shelter/shadow  that the people live

Warmest love and blessings to all from the amazing weeklong and all at the Irish Focusing Network
