My Japanese acupuncture teacher always said “Disease begins in the spirit”, but I never understood how to make that connection until I learned Focusing from Dr. Robert Lee in 1989. My love of Focusing led me to immerse myself in Thinking at the Edge and the Philosophy of the Implicit, all developed by the philosopher/psychologist, Eugene Gendlin, PhD. I became a Focusing Trainer in 2000 and have studied with Gene and many other members of the international Focusing community. I’m a Certifying Coordinator with The International Focusing Institute.
Focusing can be learned, so that everyone can use it. It does not have to be wielded by a “healer” even though learning about it is a life-long exploration. It involves learning how to slow down and listen to what is going on inside. You can get a feel for it by getting together with a friend in a Mindful Listening Partnership.
I have had many opportunities to define and redefine my role throughout my life. Focusing and Thinking at the Edge have helped me understand that the times when I felt lost, stuck, or not knowing my direction forward, it was because I wanted to do something new, something that would develop out of my own lived experience. Now I know that listening to my felt sense of situations will always help me be part of the gift of life.
I love to accompany you as you explore your next steps with Thinking at the Edge, or as you learn Focusing through the doorway of Nonviolent Communication.
