2022: continuity ..and originality

A seminar not quite like others …

Of course, this Conference will include workshops and presentations by “focusers” from a range of countries, sharing their variety, originality and richness. A thousand ways to approach and practice focusing in all its diversity. 

However, this year, in order to broaden our horizons, we invite you to leave the traditional paths of focusing to discover some speakers who will focus on how the sensitive body can have its full place. We will thus be able to enrich each other.

Thank you to our practitioners for agreeing to engage in these fruitful encounters. All are initiated or trained in focusing. Thank you to everyone for their participation which makes our conference so alive. 

We will be welcoming: Shantal  Rémus, Robert Eymeri, Eve Berger-Grosjean, Donata Schoeller, Jérôme Lavens.

The conscious body


Beyond our rational and analytical knowledge, we can access another more intuitive, more creative mode of knowledge that comes out of our known and limiting patterns. This other mode reorients and reorganizes the way we think about, approach and experience “reality”.
