BECOMING INTIMATE WITH YOUR CORE BELIEF
As It Presents In Your Daily Life And In The Big Moments:
It Can Be A Profound Experience
with Anna Christensen and Jan Bronson
The Core Belief as we define it in this workshop is a belief founded on a personal conviction of an intrinsic deficit in the very core of our being, a felt sense of inadequacy or painful inferiority. Both the Buddhist and Focusing views share the understanding that Core Beliefs belie a basic truth - that we are whole and complete as we are. When we can uncover our Core Belief and its particular coping strategies through Focusing, we can directly touch our innate compassion and wisdom. We open to interconnectedness with all beings and our authentic abilities can manifest more freely.Anna Christensen, LCSW is a psychotherapist in private practice. She is a certified Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapist and an EMDR practitioner. Anna is a long time student of Zen Buddhism. Since receiving Dharma transmission in 1997 she has been a dharma teacher and founder of the "Ordinary Mind Sangha", offering meditation groups and retreats. Anna is co-author with FOT Susan Rudnick of "A Glimpse of Zen Practice Within the Realm of Countertransference" and co-author with Jan Bronson of "Changing the Unchangeable and the Core Belief", presented at the Focusing International in Costa Rica, 2004, available of the Focusing website. Anna's passion is crossing Focusing and Zen.
Jan Bronson, MS, NRCPsyA has been practicing psychotherapy in NYC for 33 years. She became a Focusing trainer in 1996, certified by Mary Hendricks. Since then their training group has continued to meet independently to Focus, share ideas and experiences and develop Focusing applications. Anna is also in this group and together they have developed their concepts of the Core Belief through their Focusing partnership. Jan applies a model of "Consensus Building" with Focusing in her work with couples, individuals and small international groups involved in project planning or conflict resolution. Focusing is a constant part of being for her in daily life.Also, enjoy our FOCUSING COMMUNITY MARKETPLACE: In a lively exchange with others in our community, this is a time and place to share your Focusing projects, workshops and trainings and to let us know what other goods and services you have to offer. Bring your flyers and brochures for our literature table.
