Creative Compassion - Towards a Sense of Belonging

In this webinar we are going to connect what belongs together: The expressive voice of Me, the expressive voices of You and the expressive voice of the Bigger Us. Diving into Focusing with the Expressive Arts we take care of individual and collective needs celebrating expressive humaness

Starting from 1:1 empathy we move forward towards interactive empathy using practical tools of Embodied Polyaesthetics. Approaching the interplay of 'interaction first' (Eugene Gendlin) we slow down for to listen inside. From: 'this is how it works for me' and 'this is how it works for you' we sense into 'this is how it works for you and me and also for others'

Relational Empathy (Maureen o`Hara) is a powerful ressource for community life and yet so often neglected in everyday business. Focusing and user friendly embodied receptive-active arts engagement offer opportunities to explore Relational Empathy from our inner body's wisdom and give expression to what we find

Therapeutic arts directives and directives from Expressive Arts Focusing ExAF will unleash your inner artist and make your embodied self get stronger. This enables you to grow beyond personal likes and dislikes and integrate the individual and the collective through the arts

No previous art experience is required. Newcomers to Focusing are welcome! Focusing experience or experience with Focusing Oriented Expressive Arts FOAT® is helpful
