Macro-Domain Focusing Year-Long Training …

My primary interest is yearlong training of practitioners in a new kind of change psychotherapy which I call Macro-Domain Focusing. There are several ways yearlong training can be carried out including a mixture of the following:

  • Four cycles of six classes (1.5-2.5 hours/ for 3-5 person) online courses. The first cycle serves as a trial with a no obligation follow-through for the remaining three cycles.
  • Twelve monthly 3 person /3 hour; 4 person/4 hour or 5 person/5 hour (coordinately differentiated) sessions in-person (US East coast and Canada commuting possible).  The first three sessions serve as a trial with no obligation to follow-through for the remaining nine sessions.
  • Four-day retreats ($500 tuition) + 5 person / 3 hour follow-up in either monthly online sessions or monthly in-person small group sessions.
  • Six day/30 person+ ($300) tuition initial urban retreat with variable follow-up.  Offered Worldwide.

MacroShifting is being developed in emerging fields such as Loved One macros; Tender Gender Cancer macros (including gender specific cancer like breast cancer and prostate cancer); Migraine Headache macro; Exhaustion macro (lupus, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme’s disease, Crohn’s, very low energy)  as well as the General macro option which doesn’t have a common theme.


Online Workshop – Saturday, May 7, Changing the Unchangeable

Many times you come to focusing early on and you work on dilemmas and you get a shift and something changes. You continue focusing and further shifts come. Eventually, bigger changes come out of these little changes. It works just like the “Focusing” book suggests. Little changes lead to bigger changes.

These are blessings and indeed we must sustain these blessings. However, many times dilemmas do not change so easily. You don’t get a shift at all even as an experienced focuser. Or you get a shift initially, but then the subsequent shifts and movements do not come. Or you get a series of shifts and things are changing and moving along splendidly and suddenly you find yourself back at the beginning.

Robert calls things which change with great difficulty, the things which seem “unchangeable”, “macros”. He calls the dilemmas which respond relatively smoothly, “micros”. Micros are not small or inconsequential. Think macro-economics and micro-economics, both are very important.
