Find new possibilities in life with Focusing and Thinking at the Edge
The world is calling us to shift our thinking. We can’t address the existential problems we face by relying only on conventional concepts and beliefs. The current moment shows us that we are intimately connected to our planet and everyone on it in a way that we do not understand and can only glimpse with wonder.
Felt sensing opens us to a larger reality
Our human bodies can sense what is going on in our lives through the bodily felt sense. Our bodies feel and know what we are going through and what next steps we need. In Focusing, we pause and ask “What is my felt sense of this situation?”
That moment of pausing and asking can bring us in touch with the life process going on inside us all the time. Eugene Gendlin, PhD, the philosopher/psychologist. noticed this constant experiencing process and described it. At first, the bodily felt sense of a situation is vague and difficult to put into words. When we stop to listen to it, it comes into focus, and becomes a source of process steps that lead to change. That’s why it’s called “Focusing”.
Process steps have an intricacy and a power to change us, far superior to our concepts. What comes in process steps surprises us. A much more sophisticated “territory” shows itself than we are capable of formulating or inventing. –Eugene Gendlin, PhD
I’m Beatrice Blake, a Certifying Coordinator with The International Focusing Institute and a Focusing trainer for twenty years. I would love to help you explore how to think and feel beyond conventional conceptual frameworks and belief systems. Focusing and the related practice of Thinking at the Edge show you how to use felt sensing to
- deepen your personal life and relationships
- articulate things that you perceive that need to be said
- find what has meaning and motivation for you
- explore how you want to contribute to the world at this time of transformation.
Working with me starts with a free, introductory appoinment.
