Steps toward inclusion and to support the communication amongst European Focusers:
- This website does not contain static text files, such as pdf-files. The reason for this is so that all text can be automatically translated into your language.
To translate, right-click on any page, then choose “translate to (your language) or use Google Translate (for websites) to automatically translate the entire website. An inbuilt translation tool might be installed soon.
- When creating a workshop/event you can post it in your language and those visiting the site can filter workshops by European languages.
We hope to install the same feature for the resource listings, such as articles soon.
- Additional to the member’s List-View, we will soon have a map of Europe, on which members’ locations will be shown.
Thanks to all of your donations who made this new website possible!

The future of the EFA website
We are excited to see this site grow as all of you will post your events, profiles, and writings. If anything on the website needs attention, feel free to let us know. BUT, please take the time to learningly and patiently find your way before contacting us. Here are the instructions if needed: https://efa-focusing.eu/resource/instructions-for-the-efa-website/. We have put a lot of time and effort into making sure it’s easy to understand and contribute.
In about 2-3 months, when we ourselves have become more familiar with what is involved in maintaining this website, we will invite others to step in and share or take over this responsibility.
If there are creative ideas about how to let this interactive platform evolve, new interest groups are certainly welcome to bring those ideas into manifestation. This can be a great opportunity for you to actively get involved with EFA, and thereby help grow connections, mutual support, and collaboration amongst European Focusers.
Let’s gather in person!
Join us for our Annual EFA Gathing in Bassano from October 25 to 29 2023

Our two new EFA Facebook Pages
The old EFA Facebook page has been discontinued, and we have created two new pages. It is our hope that these new pages will encourage other European Focusers to join us, allowing us to better connect and collaborate.
Please sign up for the new Pages here:
The EFA Association Page (For official announcements):
The EFA Forum Page (an open space for European Focusers to post):
