Focusing New England

Promoting focusing, listening, and personal growth in the New England area

Sun. February 26, 2017: Welcoming the Body’s Implicit Wisdom with Drumming, Focusing and Movement

Lillian Sober-Ain, drummer and focusing-oriented therapist, will gently guide people into embodied, expressive, and powerful experiences in rhythm. No musical experience or talent is necessary, and all drums are provided. These rhythm journeys will be explored in connection with focusing practices and conversation. The workshop will create a supportive drumming circle that interweaves focusing with rhythmic movement and the playing of hoop-shaped hand drums. While immersed in a world of sound, we will experience how drumming, rhythm, and movement can deepen our connection to our body, help us access our felt sense, and facilitate the carrying forward process.


Lillian Sober-Ain, Ph.D., is a Focusing-Oriented Therapist with special interests in stress management, resilience, and the therapeutic effects of music, dance, and theater. In addition to having a private psychotherapy practice in Newton, Lillian conducts drumming and rhythm workshops with titles such as “Drumming for Health and Transformation.” She is a member of several ensembles, where she sings and plays the flute and various hand drums; and she recently completed a three-year training program on creating embodied experiences of rhythm.
