Additional Series Information

Description

FOAT® Tools II builds on the resilience-enhancing FOAT exercises taught in our foundational courses and teaches new FOAT exercises that help to befriend the more challenging or stressful felt senses that are part of our everyday lives.

During this series, we will introduce you to the following exercises: FOAT® Check-in and What it Needs, Inner Advisor, and Self-Care. Together we will co-create a supportive community to learn and practice these tools for deepening into our authenticity, presence, and creative wisdom – and identify steps toward growth, healing, and change. There will be opportunities to support our connection and deepen our skills of compassionate presence and listening through small and large group sharing.

Note: FOAT® Check-in and What it Needs will be offered 2 times in this series because when it is used as a repeated practice it:

  • Deepens the ability to ground ourselves

  • Brings a compassionate presence to whatever felt sense is there

  • Enhances our authenticity

  • Strengthens our inner knowing for how to care for ourselves and challenging felt senses

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe what Focusing-Oriented Expressive Arts (FOAT®) is.

  2. Explain what the “Focusing Attitude” is.

  3. Review how to express a felt sense through at least 2 arts modalities.

  4. List the benefit of adding the question “What does it need?” to a FOAT® Check-in.

  5. Practice guided imagery with Focusing-Oriented Expressive Arts (Inner Advisor exercise).

  6. Discuss 1 benefit of adding writing as a "dialogue" to a visual arts expression.
