Workshop: The Felt Sense

By Ruth Friedman

Brussels: 20 December 2016

Have you ever experienced a kind of fuzzy feelings in your body that you don’t really know how to put words to? You know your body is telling you something of importance −to you− even if you can’t explain it? Maybe it's a gut reaction, or a deep sense of feeling really right about something. This is your felt sense in action!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could learn to access the felt sense whenever you wanted to?

In this interactive, exploratory workshop we will be learning to do just that! You will learn to get into contact with your own felt sense and begin the process of listening to what it has to tell you.

Being able to access the felt sense: can bring distance to challenging relationships; can help identify and move through action blocks; supports decision making by deep listening; and can help to deal with phobias, such as claustrophobia.

The felt sense is a term that was coined by Eugene Gendlin in the 1960s. He then went on to develop focusing which is a method to help you access the felt sense. We will be drawing on this method during the workshop.
