'Focusing' is a technique first developed 25 years ago by American psychologist and philosopher Eugene Gendlin. Hugely influential, it offers six specific steps you can take to open up your inner world of deeper feelings and intuition - and shows you how to listen to others with more empathy. Short, very accessible yet also profound, this book is even more relevant today than it was when originally published.
Focusing is a beautiful and meditative approach to psychotherapy and personal growth. It offers a deep parallel to the practice of mindfulness in a carefully developed and sensitive way.
Learning to access and dissolve personal problems by focusing on the language and wisdom of the body was a historic discovery. Gendlin's genius has stood the test of time and Focusing has become a classic.
The focusing skill can be learned by anyone in or out of therapy
An original, innovative, exciting book
At once a manual and a philosophy. It talks about the body's wisdom, the steps of the focusing technique, and how to discover the richness in others by learning to listen. It looks at the potential for a new kind of relationship and a new kind of society
