“There is a kind of bodily awareness that profoundly
influences our lives and can help us reach personal goals.”
(E Gendlin)

Focusing helps us access this awareness and guides us in
our creativity, decision-making and emotional wisdom.

What is Focusing?

Focusing is self-discovery – it is a special way of paying attention to ourselves, so that we sense the whole feeling about situations or issues in our lives.  We become our own good listener and learn to tap into our inner resources.  It’s not about learning a technique – more about exploring a new way of being with ourselves.

It’s a natural, gentle, and deep process, and many people find that they sense a deeper connection with their own lives, and that they make wiser choices in their lives.

Focusing is most often a two-way process, with a Focuser and a Listener, and part of learning Focusing skills is to learn to be a good listener for others too.

Focusing

Would you like to learn how to

  • trust your intuition more
  • solve problems creatively, and make decisions confidently
  • cope more effectively with conflict, change, overload and other sources of stress
  • move through blocks and difficulties in your life with gentleness and kindness
  • enhance your creativity
  • make lifestyle changes?

Focusing can help with all of these.

Yoga

Anyone who practises Yoga has their own reasons.  Some of us practise to make the body stronger, more flexible and less resistant to injury.  Some practise to relieve physical conditions or to cope with stress.  Some of us use Yoga as a meditative practice.

Yoga can be adapted for anyone’s needs, whether you are active, sedentary, or limited by illness or disability.  It’s important that you find a style and teacher that suit you.

And you don’t need to be flexible when you start!

Presence

When we settle down to Focus, we are far more likely to have a rich experience, and one that we can fully trust, if we allow ourselves a little time to settle into presence.  I have talked about this in earlier posts.  Here is a description of settling into presence; and at the foot of this page  is a pdf sheet which you can print to help you settle into presence when you are Focusing alone.  And on the same page is an mp3 audio recording, so you don't have to keep squinting at the page. As someone recently told me,[...]

There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.

I used to think that this was a quotation by Leonard Cohen, and now I'm not so sure - he may have borrowed it.  And I don't mind whether Cohen wrote it or someone else.  I think it's a great concept, which reminds us to avoid clinging on to perfection. And I learned about Kintsugi, which is an Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with gold, silver or platinum.  It shows the repaired pot as a part of the history of the pot, rather than something to disguise.  The beauty of the pot combines the skill[...]
