Experiential arts are no method but come from the living body and the body's forwarding of the creative life force

We make space for experiential arts in Focusing and Focusing related fields of the person-centered and experiential approach (psychotherapy, counseling, education, community wellness, mindfulness, creativity)

We use three Focusing informed pathways for experiential arts engagement: Expressive Arts Focusing, Arts To Focusing Joy and Creative Compassion

In addition, we teach Focusing and Intermodal Focusing with the Arts (IFA for short) with certification at all levels in collaboration with: The International Focusing Institute TIFI, the German Person-centered Society GwG, the German Focusing Association DFG, the Swiss-German Focusing Network FN

Certification levels: Trainer, advanced practitioner, practitioner
