Focusing

dew

Focusing is a powerful process for growth and transformation.  It is a body-centered self awareness skill that includes an open and accepting inner space for change to occur.  It is a natural, innate way of listening to ourselves.

Focusing involves having a non-judgemental relationship with your emotions and feelings. This process gives you a tool for doing inner work, helping you be more present, connected and compassionate with yourself and others.

Focusing offers a gentle way to

  • be with  feelings like shame, anger, fear, and sadness in a way that is less overwhelming
  • soften harsh and critical inner voices
  • experience healing in the midst of illness
  • find places of comfort in a painful body
  • let go of addictions and habits with more ease

Instead of using the mind to try to analyze why you are feeling a certain way or how you got to the place where you are,  Focusing helps you drop down to a deeper understanding  by sensing how the issue resides in your body, freshly,  in this moment. With this process you access the wisdom of your ‘felt sense’ and are led to what is true for you.
