Focalizing is a somatic healing technology that enables participants to completely reinvent their lives by resolving the barriers that prevent them from experiencing their fullest potential of well-being and joy. These barriers can be in the form of conditioned thinking, traumatic experiences, stress, depression, sexual and intimacy barriers, and more. Once these blocks have been brought to resolution, Focalizing takes on the form of a creative tool that supports participants to access levels of awareness that allow them to act and make decisions that are deeply informed by their body and whole being.
Dr. Michael Picucci put this work together through his years of experience as a Psychotherapist, Sexologist, Master Addictions Coach, and Somatic Experiencing Facilitator. It also uses elements of Vipassana Meditation, Healing Imagery, Family Constellations, and his life experience in this field.
Certified Practitioners of Focalizing will be able to:
- Have the capacity to respond to activated or challenging experiences during a Focalizing session
- Apply Focalizing to help themselves and others develop new relationships to familiar emotions and belief systems that have been in the picture for many years or an entire lifetime
- Integrate this healing technology into existing personal or clinical practices and settings
- Facilitate a Focalizing session to navigate personal challenges or assist others through a variety of barriers
- Articulate the Focalizing process, the nature of trauma energy and the benefits of this process
- Use these tools to make sense of the many signals, emotions, and sensations the body surfaces on a moment by moment basis

“I absolutely love doing the Focalizing Course with Jo and Nick. There is, according to me, just a perfect balance between theory and opportunity of practical applications through demo sessions and buddy work.
Their explanations are really clear and they are always open for questions and I love their kind and embracing attitudes.

"Nick and Jo walk you slowly and gently through the concepts of Focalizing. Their style allows you to gradually integrate Focalizing into your life as you visit and revisit aspects of the practice. Each week's class feels contained and purposeful and they truly embody what they teach to create a supportive learning environment. I'm grateful to have found their offering.
Irene, Emerging healer and guide, Brooklyn, NY
"The training has given me a beautiful system to effectively work one on one with students and has also allowed my personal practice to deepen.
Jo and Nick are wonderful teachers holding space with love and compassion and delivering the material each week at a pace that allows a natural unfolding of the practice while the homework and class discussions reinforce the integration of focalizing.
Elizabeth, Mindfulness / Meditation Teacher, Long Island, NY
"The gentle, yet powerful process of Focalizing has been truly a life-changing experience for me.
I have tremendous gratitude for our trainers Nick Werber and Jo Miller. Their knowledge and compassion provided such a safe and nurturing learning environment.
