The Play of Felt Sensing

Experiments in The Play of Felt-Sensing

Australian researcher, Focusing Teacher, Greg Walkerden and Psychotherapist and Focusing Teacher, Jane Quayle, have been developing ways of how felt-sensing might come into play in ordinary conversations, in idea generation or problem solving in the workplace/communities and in how the whole field of felt-sensing might broaden out beyond the traditional Focusing model, centred on Focusing alone or in partnership.

They have called this work Experiments in the Play of Felt-Sensing. They have been running courses inviting Focusers to try out these experiments for themselves. They have generously made all these available for free for use and experiment by Focusers, who are free to use them in their own practice and teaching. They simply ask that the source of them is credited to Greg Walkerden and Jane Quayle. They are copyright free.

Some of the ‘experiments’ are quite simple, some more complex, depending on the context. It might be interesting for IFN members to get together and experiment and see what emerges.
