Deep Change through Elaborate Focusing Projects

Change something that has been around for a long time in spite of your many efforts.

With issues such as: difficult-to-change relationship or career patterns, stubborn depression and anxiety disorders, obsessions/addictions that persist, integrity issues, professional development, physical conditions, spiritual blocks, social change projects, difficult-to-achieve creativity goals.

In the classes you will:

LAUNCH a Changing the Unchangeable project (a macro) making your change-campaign equal to the task. Macros go further into your internal structure and further out into the social structure than is visible. They require more of a campaign than you think.

GET HELP from your history for approaching your macro (your unchangeable issue) Macros are difficult to approach freshly.

LOOSEN ROPES. Think of a macro(your project) as a trampoline held in place by many ropes. There is an art to finding and loosening these ropes which keep your macro from changing.

DISMANTLE BEARING WALLS. Grasping the intricacy of your deeper world allows you to coordinate complex change steps similar to the project of dismantling a bearing wall in a house.

MAKE TIME YOUR FRIEND through Timestretching, Timesensing, Timeshifting, and In-Time--special focusing methods for making time your friend rather than your enemy.

DO sophisticated JOURNALING so you can go further with the forward steps

LEARN ANTI-STRANDING which works in a different direction than classic focusing and has similarities with meditation. Instead of moving toward clarification and small sequential forward steps, it moves toward the vague and toward indirect cross-time changes in the whole project.

Schedule: We will choose a time which facilitates the time zones of the various people who sign up.

Cost: $450

Graduates of this course will be eligible to join the Macroshifting Year course ...more...
