I felt a shift in me that was so palpable. I knew something in me had fundamentally changed. It was like now I see the world upside-down or down-side-up—that kind of change of perception.
I’m envisioning a Daily Practice in Wholebody Focusing:to embody and sustain that sense of Me-Here as a body-sense of my Self as the foundation place—an Inner-Directed Experience of who I am and what I want to do.
Over the years, it has become clear to me that we seem to desire to start with an Intunement, to begin to have a fresh sense of ourselves as a Wholebody Focusing experience—to get in touch with what might be there in us right now.
How am I? What is going on right now? How can I make room for that? –that kind of attention. We seem to need some kind of solid grounding, something that we can hold onto, to allow those kinds of questions to emerge.
We usually start with some form of an Intunement to find that place in us that awakens what naturally wants to come alive and to inform us about ourselves and what is happening when it feels safe enough to do so!
It works when we can do this, and a sense of gratitude often follows when we spend time with ourselves in this way. It also initiates a relationship—it is not just a thought, it is an experience of me and something out there, a not-me, that together awakens a sense of feeling alive to myself beyond stuck-me!Continue reading “Beginning a Wholebody Focusing Practice”
We are so happy you have arrived. We thank all of you who have participated in reading, commenting, liking, sharing, and writing for our blog. The blog was created to provide the Wholebody Focusing Community with an open, online place to participate in a Heartfelt Conversation.
Who we are:
This blog started in December 2017. It was created by Wholebody focusers who have studied with Kevin McEvenue and/or Karen Whalen. Some of us are also working on building the First International Wholebody Focusing Retreat in Barrie, On, Canada in August 2018. We started this process because we saw a need in our own lives for a way to stay connected to the Wholebody Focusing and Heartfelt Conversation practices that we have learned. This blog is part of a coordinated effort to create sustainable resources to help WBFers connect with each other and have multiple ways to keep our shared conversation moving forward. We are very lucky to have the guidance of Kevin McEvenue, the founder of Wholebody Focusing, as our mentor and prime enthusiast. He frequently replies to a post when something in it moves him.
There are no financial interests or ads involved. No one is selling anything and participation from Wholebody focusers is welcomed and encouraged.
Our bodies’ inherent ability to heal waits for us to give our attention to what is present, continuously observing what is truly there with equal regard and accompanying our bodies as they explore their own healing in their own time and their own way.
This blog is based on the work of Kevin McEvenue. It is dedicated to those who seek healing by connecting to available abundant, benevolent energy to support the body’s healing wisdom. Stories of practitioners’ and teachers’ experiences lead us through their own healing through this method.
The Blog is a resource with followers from over 60 countries and posts in English, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Norwegian, and Swedish. One can find examples of how Wholebody Focusing can support your special emotional needs. At the same time, it is also a source of beauty. The authors use prose, poetry, art, photography, music, and video to help you understand their work. Each author plans and designs their posts to express the power of their experience of this practice.
Resources on the Blog
You can find out how to participate and learn about Wholebody Focusing through Upcoming Events. It is easy to pick posts that suit you by searching on keywords that match your needs. If you like a particular author’s post, you can click on their name and read all other posts by that author. You can also use the search function to find a topic that is important to you.
We have resources for certified trainers and videos under Wholebody Trainers’ Corner in which certified trainers discuss how they approach working with clients.
How Wholebody Focusing Works
Our bodies’ inherent ability to heal needs us to focus on what is present, continuously observing what is genuinely there. We do this with equal regard for whatever we find and accompany our bodies as they explore their own healing in their own time and their own way. This healing is deep and lasting. It doesn’t cause trauma, and we can experience new parts of ourselves emerging as they find their way.
We invite and welcome contributions from this community of self-healers to continue to build this shared space. It can be with stories, art, poetry, prose, thoughts, theories, and experiences that will reach around the world to those who need support to heal.
