A Little Bit About Me (Suzanne L. Noel)

I am a Certifying Coordinator for the Focusing Institute in New York.

Focusing is a process of attending inside ourselves to let new insights, meaning, and possibilities come from our innate body wisdom. It’s about pausing, placing our attention inside ourselves, and letting symbols come about how we are living situations. It is a way of making sense of our lives.

Please feel free to visit my website to find out more: www.recoveryfocusing.com

I also have another blog titled The Felt Meaning of Recovery. I have developed a powerful model for working with groups in treatment from substance dependency or other addictive processes. The model applies my H.O.W. We Heal process to the Twelve Steps of Recovery to enliven a group with personal, felt meaning and life-changing insights. Samples of this work can be found at The Felt Meaning of Recovery.

I have made collages for many years out of magazine cut outs. Here are my “Textures of Life” collages.

I am grateful that I was able to use some of my older collages in a slide show I made about Recovery Focusing. If you are interested in finding out more about this new crossing of felt sensing with the 12 Steps, please view it at your own leisure: Recovery Focusing: Shifting from being stuck in an addictive process to processing your stuckness.

If you would like to see more of my artwork, feel free to  visit my Facebook page and look under photo albums.

I also write poetry. You can read a few in this preview of my book “A Deeper Passion.” Here is my poem “The Chosen” about a Step Four process of recovery.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Keep Falling Into Your Heart.

  1. I am a seabean lover and adore your site. Love everything! Do you sell your sculptures? If so, can you tell me where this might be posted?


    1. Hi Lynn. I am happy you like my sculptures. Thank you. 🙂

      If you are a sea bean lover, why not see if you yourself can create your own lovely display? 🙂

      Anyhow, let me know which ones you like, and we can talk.
      There are a few I would like to keep, but I can always change my mind!
