Inspired by the work that Addie van de Kooy has been adding to the blog that precisely describes what happens when someone learns Wholebody focusing, we decided to develop a new category of communication. We want to provide those who are Wholebody Focusing Trainers with a place to share their expertise and have a Heartfelt Conversation on how to deepen our practice of working with our clients. Kevin McEvenue’s Intunements are an extraordinary resource that can support both personal practice as well as the work of WBF trainers. Kevin is genuinely interested; however, in being a part of the growth and expansion of how the teaching of Wholebody Focusing can support the forward moving life in all of us.
To that end, we have created this new area in the blog called The Wholebody Focusing Trainer Corner so that information about teaching Wholebody Focusing can be shared and discussed. One should consider the Intunements as part of this training material; however, it will continue to have a separate section on the blog because it serves individual practice as well.
We invite all those who teach Wholebody Focusing to share with us your best practices. If you would like support to prepare an article or video for this section, please contact Diana Scalera at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Addie van der Kooy Series
This series of videos is a conversation between Kevin McEvenue and Addie van der Kooy that took place August 2018. Addie was the co-author who helped Kevin to write his first book on Wholebody Focusing and they have been collaborating every since. This series of interview/discussions introduces us to how Addie approaches assisting people to deeply learn and be able to benefit from their WBF practice. We are providing these videos as a starting point in the discussion of how individuals are developing their work as trainers not as a defining mandate for how one should work with clients.
Take your time to take in and enjoy the scope of the work Addie van der Kooy is suggesting here.
The Inner Core Muscle of “Me Here” This Interview discusses training someone to find grounded presence.

Me Here and My Thoughts This interview discusses how to be with racing thoughts that may or may not be true or helpful.
Kevin McEvenue’s Training Series 2019
These are the new Intunements from Keven starting in March 2019. They will be part of his contribution to supporting Wholebody Focusing Trainers.
What Kevin tells us here—how ‘intunements’ got started in WBF and what their purpose is—seems to me that he’s opening the door to a spiritual aspect of WBF.
