25th anniversary edition of the classic bestseller
An internationally recognized American psychologist and philosopher Eugene Gendlin teaches at the University of Chicago and has received three important awards from the American Psychological Association. The author of many books, including Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams and Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy, he has also published over 200 articles. More information on the Focusing Institute can be found at www.focusing.org
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
