“Every bad feeling is potential energy toward the right way of being if you give it space to move toward its rightness.” So said Eugene Gendlin, the originator of the Focusing practice. And given the current circumstances: pandemic, racial tensions, political unrest, just to name a few, it’s likely that you’re experiencing some so-called “bad feelings” and wish that things were different.
Join Paula Staffeldt for Focusing, a different kind of reflective practice that can help you reframe your relationship to your feelings, see your “problem” with fresh eyes, and open the door to new solutions.
While a single session of Focusing won’t solve the world’s problems, it can allow the space for your feelings and concerns to shift in the direction of your “right way of being” with them.
Paula is a former organizational development practitioner, with over 20 years experience in corporate training, leadership development, and coaching with expertise in Reality-Based Leadership, Crucial Conversations and Contemplative Leadership. Her graduate degree in Counseling Psychology, with a cognate in Theology, set the groundwork for becoming an ordained ministerial counselor, specializing in interspiritual studies and contemplative practices, which led her to Focusing. The practice of Focusing has allowed her to dis-identify with the ego and live from a higher stage of spiritual awareness with more consistency. She now teaches classes in Focusing privately and “Navigating the Stages of the Spiritual Journey,” based on Fr. Keating’s three stages of spiritual development, at the University of Denver, in Colorado.
