We are happy to hold this conference in Britain for the first time. It will be in the beautiful old university town of Cambridge, and we will be at Robinson College, one of the modern colleges that make up the university. Our aim is to make this conference a memorable experience!
The international Focusing conference
This conference is open to Focusing people from anywhere in the world. Whether you are new to Focusing or have been practicing it for years, it is a wonderful opportunity to explore the extraordinary diversity of the worlds of Focusing. You can experience how others are using Focusing, and you can present what you are doing with it if you wish. Everything in the conference is led by the participants - there are no keynote speakers.
The conference will begin on Wednesday with dinner at 7pm followed by the opening ceremony, and end after lunch on Sunday around 2pm. We will have workshops, interest groups and discussion forums for you to learn more about Focusing, and to present your ideas. There will be home groups and meeting places to help you to find focusing partners and make new friends - as well as time for Focusing partnerships, and opportunities to enjoy being in Cambridge. More details on the Programme page.
This will be a two day coordinators meeting starting on Monday 18th July, probably in the evening after dinner.
The college is modern and comfortable, and the food is good. There is space for more than 200 people in a variety of accommodation with a range of prices. There are many meeting rooms, including a warm and intimate auditorium for everyone to meet, and a large garden to walk in.
We will be ten minutes walk from the centre of the town and the famous views of the college ‘backs’ - the gardens and beautiful buildings of the older university colleges. We are planning some delightful activities to enjoy being in Cambridge, including a dinner in the magnificent dining hall at Kings College, with a visit to Kings College Chapel that is famous around the world for its musical performances.
The British Focusing Association is hosting the conference, and the organising committee includes Jerry Conway, Kay Hoffmann, Manjudeva, Elizabeth English (Locana) and Peter Afford. We will be helped by Maymay Knight who is the conference administrator.
