Sunday November 19, 2017: Accessing Ancestral Wisdom in Difficult Times with Focusing

With Beilah Ross

During difficult times when we may feel helpless, anxious, alone, or afraid, we tend to seek out the support of those who have more emotional distance from our situation. Having passed into the realm of the spiritual, our ancestors or benefactors possess equanimity, egolessness, and affective distance that may be difficult for us to access on our own, especially when flooded with difficult thoughts and emotions. They can offer a wider perspective that comes from having watched human history evolve and devolve over time as well as the wisdom they’ve gotten from their own lived experience.  Focusing can facilitate embodied connection with our ancestors or benefactors, helping us to feel unconditionally loved, cared for, comforted, and guided by them. In this experiential workshop, participants will learn and practice Focusing questions and techniques with people from their family lineage or their “chosen family” so that these beings can become a refuge they go to for strength, inspiration, wisdom and solace in times of adversity.

Beilah Ross, LICSW is in private practice, works with adults, couples and children. In addition to talk therapy, she uses mindfulness, relaxation, EMDR and Focusing to help people connect with their inner wisdom. She also teaches Focusing to individuals and groups.
