The 13th Annual Northwest Focusers Gathering
will be held May 15-17, 2020

Registration is closed

Dumas Bay Centre
3200 SW Dash Point Road
Federal Way, WA 98023

This Gathering welcomes Focusers and persons interested in Focusing. There are usually 25 – 35 attending. We create the program together in a General Meeting at the beginning of the weekend. There are always new explorations, lots of Focusing time, a class for beginners, and a Changes Group.

Every other year we meet in Washingtion state near Seattle, and the next year we meet in Oregon near Portland. Our location for 2019 was at the lovely retreat center of Still Meadow Conference and Retreat Center . Wonderful meals were  provided from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. (dietary options are available).

The Program:  Participants create the program cooperatively in a general meeting at the beginning of the weekend.  We usually include new Focusing explorations, lots of Focusing time, a class for beginners, and other favorite activities.

Focusing Level 1 Class:    Learn transformational Focusing skills and access your body’s innate wisdom and knowing through cultivation of refined inner sensing, spaciousness and presence. The Focusing class will take place concurrently with other presentations. SEE DETAILS >>

Teaching/Sharing Opportunities:  All participants are invited to offer workshop sessions if they wish. The Gathering is a place where diverse and innovative Focusing-related practices can be explored.
