Focusing is a powerful process that can shift emotional stuckness into ease and balance. But it’s not always clear how Focusing can be of direct help when we’re confronted with the struggles of daily life.

A message about this webinar from Ann Weiser Cornell
Anger is good. The feeling of outrage shouts out loud and clear that something is unfair, wrong, unacceptable. Our bodies are full of powerful energy that could be directed to righting that wrong.
But anger can also make us stupid, lead us to take actions that don’t help and actually make things worse. Anger at old wrongs can become corrosive, turned inward at ourselves, forming part of dead-end patterns of blockage and frustration. And worst of all, anger with no acceptable channel can turn into feelings of powerlessness, depression, and despair.
If you’re like me, there’s a lot to be angry about these days. I feel both angry and sad when I see how my values of compassion and caring for the more vulnerable among us are ignored and tossed aside by many of our political leaders. You may be different from me, and I respect that — but I bet there is a lot to trigger your anger too. (People trying to take your guns away?)
In addition to current events, our anger may be triggered by behaviors occurring now that set off something in us hurt and hidden from long ago. Being disrespected… not being heard… being marginalized.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could channel our anger into effectiveness without dissolving into overwhelm and feelings of powerlessness? In this seminar, I will show you how to use Focusing when your anger flares up and when your despair knocks you down, to shift from powerlessness to empowerment, and from inner suffering to inner strength.
