NEW YORK METRO FOCUSING
Friday, April 12, 2019
NY Metro Focusing meetings offer an opportunity to engage in a felt sensing, interactive exploration of topics of interest. We value diversity and welcome everyone’s voice. Our conversational process encourages slowing down, listening from a felt sensing place, and letting what we hear resonate within to bring something new and fresh, both within ourselves and within the group.

New York Metro Focusing Mission Statement
The mission of New York Metro Focusing is to embody and carry forward the practice of Focusing and the philosophy that supports it as developed in the work of Eugene Gendlin and others. By holding regularly scheduled meetings, NY Metro Focusing will offer members of this local geographic community ongoing opportunities to connect, share and grow in their appreciation and practice of Focusing. The group will welcome newcomers by offering them an opportunity to learn about the life-enhancing practice of Focusing. In this way, NY Metro Focusing will help to engender a thriving and visible presence for the practice of Focusing in the New York Metropolitan area.
We are interested in keeping the conversation going, both in person at future meetings and online. We invite you to share what might still be happening for you or what you might like to return to at a later point. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
