What services do I offer?

MEMBER I am offering Focusing Skills Certificate Level 1-5 Online (and live) courses in English as well as in Chinese for Taiwanese and Chinese students I also offer 5-day Focusing oriented courses in Germany with an emphasis on finding ease and clarity within one’s professional/work-life. I am co-facilitating retreats with my sister, combining Focusing with Authentic Movement.

My curiosity and explorations include:
- How does Focusing lead to steps of action?
- How to combine Focusing with non-violent communication, so that the expression of our needs and wishes arise from a felt sense basis?
- How to learn/teach listening from one's (embodied) whole self?
- How to let insights from the Polyvagal Theory inform our quality (inner) listening?
- The significance of inviting a larger whole in the Focusing process.

My background in Focusing

I have been Focusing since 2014.
After an introduction to Focusing as part of a course called "Working with People", I immediately caught fire. A year later, I repeated the course, which also included energy reading, and assisted the same course in 2018.
In the first years, after reading "Focusing" by Gene Gendlin, I primarily Focused by myself as I continuously traveled through various time zones and found this to be the most suitable format. However, over the past years, I have tremendously appreciated regular Focusing partnerships and peer support.
I am a certified Focusing Teacher/Trainer/Professional.
Before I started Focusing, I had a 15-year foundation of daily meditation and regular Feldenkrais practice, both approaches in which the inner inquiry takes place alone. I find the interaction during Focusing to be a precious addition. Focusing tremendously enhances my life, and I wish to share this practice and teach Focusing skills to as many people as possible.

A Focusing session with Amona can be nothing short of a revelation. She sits with you, gently guiding the inner process of listening. What she offers, in essence, is a safe holding, a non-judgmental witnessing that allows you to trust your own experiences, thoughts, and feelings to the relief of bodily tension and psychological stress. Focusing allows for a greater self-assurance– a confidence that you are the expert of your own body and mind.

Amona is a brilliant teacher, in so many ways. I first met her when she was offering a brief workshop for the Focusing Institute. My experience of her in that initial workshop was profound and moving and I knew that I finally had a teacher for learning more deeply about Focusing. ... Here classes were characterized by her unique way of listening – deeply and thoroughly, with a clear desire to truly understand what was being asked or said. I also really appreciated how every difficulty, discomfort, not-quite-rightness, whether in the focusing partnership process, or in the class as a whole, was treated as an opportunity for further exploration and learning...
