“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.



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.


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!

And it works for a great many other people too. One of the delights of Focusing is that it is a safe and gentle process,[...]

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house Every morning a new arrival, A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome them all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honourably. He may be clearing you out  for some new delight. from "The Guest House" by Rumi[...]
