Personal Statement about Training Program:
Many people know and teach their children to wash their hands to keep down the spread of infection. I want Focusing to be the hand-washing of community wellness, available all over the world, easily taught, easily used at a simple level. With Dr. Patricia Omidian, I teach Focusing this way in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and it spreads around quickly, people teaching each other. I also teach in Oregon and other US locations
