Focusing is the mindful practice of using our bodily felt sense to guide our actions, moment by moment. We turn our attention inward to notice subtle sensations and see them gradually come into focus and become meaningful.
Why this course?
The word “focusing” evokes what happens when we adjust binoculars: a blurry image turns into a clear one, i.e., it comes into focus.
Nobody invented Focusing. Gene Gendlin discovered it, explored it, and described ways to help make it happen. Now, decades later, neuroscience has added to our understanding of it. So has the experience of tens of thousands of Focusers (probably hundreds of thousands, who know, Focusers are not bean counters).
So it is now simpler than ever to access our inner GPS. This introductory course presents a down-to-earth perspective on Focusing as an organic process that we can easily access. It is suitable for beginners as well as for Focusers who wish to gain a new perspective on Focusing.
