Saying More of What You Mean
Finding ways into the ‘implicit intricacy’ in accessible ways
Mary Jennings
TIFI Coordinator

Would you like to find ways of saying more of what you mean with greater clarity and creativity? Using felt-sensing, we can find accessible ways into what Gendlin calls the ‘implicit intricacy’ to help us do just that. In this 6-week course, through exercises, discussion, small group work and examples from different sources we will explore together how we can say more of what we mean.

“We feel more than we can think, and we live more than we can feel. And if we enter into what we feel in certain genuine steps, we feel more than before. And there is much more still."
Eugene Gendlin

You may be curious about using felt-sensing in new ways to express something that matters to you. The approach here is to take some of the practices Gendlin developed for more formal practices such as theory or concept development and use them for in accessible ways – maybe formulating an article for a newsletter, beginning a creative project, learning new ways of writing a business proposal, or you might want to begin exploring some particular area of interest where you can bring fresh thinking to the world. When you make these practices your own, they can support you in many ways.

Gendlin developed ‘certain genuine steps’– in Focusing and in Thinking at the Edge (TAE) – and from these steps emerge simple practices you can use in your everyday life to express more of what you mean. You will find that you may know many of these already from your own experience; some may be new. What makes them effective is to work with them in a more deliberate, felt-sensed and playful way.

In this 6-week course we will do exercises together, we will also dip into some pieces from writers, poets & artists to see how they work with the implicit intricacy—you can work in this way too!

Who is this for?
Participants will have some experience of Focusing, felt sensing and listening. You may be curious about using felt-sensing in new ways, while being playful along the way.
