Product Overview

A breakthrough method of "unlocking the wisdom within your body" to solve specific problems and achieve dramatic personal growth and change
This original, innovative program of self-therapy enables you to tap into your deepest level of wisdom, the "gut-level" knowledge that already exists within your body. By accessing this subliminal body-mind awareness (or "felt sense") that lies beyond thoughts and feelings, you can get to the root of the conflicts within you, gain a fuller comprehension of your unresolved problems, and solve them.
What is focusing? It is a technique of self-therapy that teaches you to identify and change the way your personal problems concretely exist in your body. 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 actually exist, and only on this level can they change. Both a practical guide and a powerful philosophy of personal growth, this effective, proven procedure has wide-ranging applications, including healing, education, business, creative pursuits, and problem solving.

From the Publisher
Annotation Why does therapy succeed for some patients and not for others? Eugene T. Gendlin addresses that question, and raises many others, in his classic book FOCUSING. Released in 1980, FOCUSING continues to have far-reaching impact on psychoanalysis and other therapeutic methods, searching out the subconscious response to contemporary psychotherapy. According to Gendlin, certain people have intuitive abilities that make applying the principles of psychotherapy easy. Others simply have a harder time acclimating themselves to their new thoughts. Using a subtle version of kinesiology, Gendlin has developed a series of "Focusing Steps" which contain a built-in test: when performed correctly, each step will build towards a growing physical release. This is the body actually "letting go" of the offending behavior or mindset. The readers learn how to recognize this feeling and become sensitive to their own unconscious desires and fears. FOCUSING seeks to define and teach positive habits to readers seeking physical and emotional healing, either through traditional psychotherapy or through their own study. Dozens of anecdotes and real-life situations are used to illuminate Gendlin's theories and help the reader begin applying his technique immediately.
