Focusing is a simple way of connecting with our deeper selves. In the rush of our everyday lives it can be hard to reach inside and get a deeper sense of what we are truly experiencing. It can be hard to reach beyond the habits that define our lives. For me, focusing with another person creates a space, a shelter from the whirl of my own “shoulds” and the feeling that time is so limited.
When I am focusing it is as if time expands. I really love that this is not therapy, it is self care and helping each other. I enjoy listening to another person’s process and I feel honored that my presence can make a difference.
Focusing is simple, basic self care at the deepest level. It is a special way of connecting with other human beings. In the time that we live in, stress fills us and it can be very hard to find peace with the turbulence within. Focusing can help us find a valuable space to pause amongst the rush and look within.
