Focusing Values Statement
I do not distinguish between focusing values and personal values. My focusing values are included with “living in a focusing way.” To my value system this means bringing the qualities of inner relationship focusing to the outside world. This would mean that I value the “self” and that I value the “self” in anyone. It means having respect for the “self” and oneself as I believe we can have respect for the “self” in each individual and at the same time the individual.
These are some of the values I hold as a person and in my focusing practice.
Aretha Franklin had it right.
I can bring integrity to the focusing process so that I can really help facilitate a person’s process.
Respect for privacy with the understanding that what occurs within a focusing session is private.
Within a focusing (or life) context, perhaps one of our weakest links is the ease with which we can tend to judge others. It’s somehow “human” to stick a label on everything. Non judgement facilitates process by respecting process and by transcending our own ego.
These are values or a way we are all capable of being at any moment, with any breath, with careful intent.
This might be more of a quality than a value, but I feel it is important to create a space that nurtures ones internal creativity and knowing. I feel every individual has a unique way and finds their own way, the way that is the correct and perfect way for them.
In my focusing practice I encourage people to enter their own space to nurture their inner relationships. I hope they understand that I have integrity and respect their private process allowing them to find what is perfect for them. I commit to this by being non-judgmental, bringing awareness, love and nurturing attention to their process.
I feel every human being deserves this as a way to help them thrive, rediscover, develop and be everything they can imagine.
