THE PATH OF THE SENTIENT BEING – Presence – Accompaniment – Resonance – Trust
The Path of the Sensing Being Retreat will be combining the process of Focusing and Contemplative Presence Practice, this retreat invites a sense of living from an embodied sense of Presence. Coming back to remembering our true most natural and simple nature in community.
This retreat is open to all levels of Focusing practice. It might be specially interesting if you are considering moving forward into deepening your Focusing experience and if you are in the process of becoming a Focusing practitioner or Teacher or thinking about it.
Focusing shows us a radical and authentic way of listening to our bodies with gentle and generous compassion, without seeking results or solutions. This path also pursues what we cannot express in words. It supports individuals to find their own natural way for a healthy and meaningful inner relationship so they can find a deeper sense of who they truly are when meeting others and the environments they live in.
It is specially important more and more in our lives to access to what is there within our own inner knowing and wisdom so we can find ways together as we meet life as it is.
During this retreat we are going to enter into the initiation and introduction to focusing.
An opportunity to recover and remember how to listen to our body to connect with the deep wisdom it contains and dialogue with it. We will create a space for sacred listening, unfolding the necessary attitudes to find a deeper way of relating to ourselves and to others.
THE PATH OF THE SENSING BEING
- Inner silence & being able to listen to the whole body
- Focusing Steps – gently sensing them coming with our experience
- Radical and sacred Listening
- Pausing and the Felt Sense
- Sacred presencing – Healing space in companioning
- We will have moments to share Qi Gong, meditation, nature walks and personal or community time with the environment.
The training and retreat will be facilitated by Marta Fabregat, Focusing Teacher and Practitioner from the International Focusing Institute in New York and the British Focusing Association.
Marta's interest in the body knowing and somatic experiencing while in relationship with oneself, others and nature has been the focus of her work for over 20 years.
