I first studied Focusing with 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 Focusing community. I’m a Certifying Coordinator with The International Focusing Institute.
I see a world in which children are raised to trust their felt sense of situations by parents who know how to listen to their own felt sense. Although I was originally trained as an acupuncturist, Focusing does not have to be wielded by a “healer”. It is a life-long exploration that anyone can practice by slowing down and listening in a friendly way to what is going on inside. You can get a feel for it by trying a 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 life was urging me to explore something that as yet had no definition. Now I know that listening to my felt sense is my life force guiding me to more life.
I’d love to accompany you as you explore your next steps with Thinking at the Edge, or as you learn Focusing through the doorway of Empathic Communication, or in becoming a Certified Focusing Trainer.
