WRITE ON! How to make your feelings concrete with Kevin Flanagan

Workshop Description:We all get shifts and the “appearance of the new green shoot” feeling following a Focusing session but often, as Gene Gendlin observed, the new feeling is trampled on before it can really take root. Writer Kevin Flanagan will describe a simple process whereby you can “concretise” your Focusing feelings by turning them into words and create a precious record you can reflect on.

Who this is for: Everyone – part of the Caring for Yourself part of the Conference

About the presenter: Kevin Flanagan trained with Eugene Gendlin in Chicago. He wrote “Everyday Genius” a book described by Professor Gendlin as “one of the best descriptions of the Focusing process that I have ever read.”
