What is the Irish Focusing Network?
The Irish Focusing Network is a network of people who share an interest in Focusing. Most members are people who use Focusing in their personal lives as a self-care practice and to enhance personal growth. Others use it in their professional lives and some teach Focusing to individuals or groups. The Network was established to bring people together for learning and support. It also aims to foster and promote Focusing in Ireland.
There are different strands within the Network which include the weekly online gathering where members share Focusing time, a practice group for those new to Focusing, and a group for Focusing trainers/facilitators. Members who wish to set up a group that has a particular interest in an aspect of Focusing are welcome to do so, with the possibility of using Network’s facilities to host gatherings.
Who can join?
Membership of the association is open to anyone who knows the basics of Focusing and has completed a Focusing and Listening level/module.
If you would like more information or are interested in joining the Network, please contact us through Contact Form on the website.
