The Focusing Training is supposed to introduce you to the spirit and techniques of Focusing by Eugene Gendlin.
What is Focusing?
Focusing teaches you to identify and change the way your personal problems concretely exist in your body. It consists of steps of felt change. Unlike methods that stress “getting in touch with your feelings,” there is a built-in test: each focusing step, when done correctly, is marked by a physical relief, a profound release of tension. Focusing guides you to the deepest level of awareness within your body. It is on this level, unfamiliar to most people, that unresolved problems exist and only on this level can they change.
It is possible to use Focusing as:
- a self-therapy technique;
- independent therapy method;
- as a specific occasional technique within your classical therapy approach.
