Personal Statement about Training Program:
Focusing is a basic human process. I teach Focusing so that we can regain contact with possibly the most fundimental aspect of our being called Presence. When we are in Presence we are not occupied with the past or the future, rather we become part of an on-going engagement with all-that-is as It unfolds. For me, this is the center point or point of focus for my life. I hope to share this process with those eager to come in conact with their core identity.
