Personal Statement about Training Program:
I loved teaching Focusing in a prison for 17 years, where the inmates and I developed a group Focusing practice called Table in the Clearing. See for details and a video entitled 'I Scared A Murderer.'
In addition to prison work, I love incorporating Focusing in a writing group I facilitate, Before Words Come.
