Sensing the Existential Ground in Us
Focusing with the Whole Body (FWB) in Challenging Times 

Termin: 20.-24. August 2025 

In this workshop I want to share how Focusing with the Whole Body can support us while we are confronted with challenging situation: Echoes of war, tensions in society, the critical environmental situation and on the personal level with times of transition or crisis. How can we stay informed and caring human beings in the face of these situations as well as supporting ourselves in our forward living every day?

Together we will turn to our conscious living human body to find fresh answers.

To help in this I will present some of the process-elements that I have developed over the course of my work: The Body-Process Language, Relational Em-Bodying, Grounding into Being Here, Life Living from Itself, Pendulating between what is more and a life situation.

If there is time some more applications will be presented.

Focusing with the Whole Body provides many trauma-prophylactic process elements that will be shared during the workshop. At the same time it opens an existential grounding into that what is more …

Astrid Schillings: Focusing came into her life in 1981, when a student of Person Centered psychology. It resonated deeply with her wondering what it is to be human, why we are here. In that spirit she became a Psychotherapist/Psychologist. She has been exploring and teaching extensively on the interface of Sensitive Body-Awareness (Mindfulness, Somatic Experiencing, Qi Gong, Authentic Movement, Feldenkrais) It took her years to let her entry into Focusing with the Whole Body (FWB) carry forward beyond any traditional setting. She teaches – professionals, therapist and everybody interested – internationally as well as in her training centre in Cologne. She has been in ongoing conversation with Gene Gendlin on his extended understanding of the living body.

More information coming soon.
