What is Focusing?

The term, Focusing, was originated by Eugene Gendlin, Ph.D in the 60s. The concept is based on bodily knowing; meaning that your body picks up and holds more about situations and feelings than you consciously are aware of. Learning how to sense into your body and hold open attention there, to allow what arises to inform you toward resolution is the practice of focusing. EMDR uses a similar sensing into the body as part its protocol. (For more about focusing visit: http://www.focusing.org)
