Mission Statement

FOCUSZART The Focusing Studio was founded to bring experiential arts to the world

Our mission aims to not only promote personal growth, joy and healing through experiential arts but also to initiate shifts in cultur bound thinking, feeling and acting modes

We claim experiential arts being a doorway for slow change in cultures (cultures of the psyche, Focusing cultures, and cultures of therapeutic schools, organisations and communities)

We strongly believe experiential arts being a portal for transcultural development. Experiential arts can be a vehicle to ride the freedom of cross-cultural learning from bottum-up right-brain activities

In experiential arts the body is taking the lead in aesthetic activities (therapeutic and non therapeutic). The aesthetics belong to both the materalistic and the spiritual realms of life and therefore have special transformative qualities

According to our view, these qualities of the transformative are a strong argument to implement experiential arts in Focusing and Focusing-informed approaches, as well as in Focusing related fields of research
