The classic guide to a powerful
technique for personal transformation
Based on groundbreaking research conducted at the University of Chicago, the focusing technique has gained widespread popularity and scholarly acclaim. It consists of six easy-to-master steps that identify and change the way thoughts and emotions are held within the body. Focusing can be done virtually anywhere, at any time, and an entire "session" can take no longer than ten minutes, but its effects can be felt immediately-in the relief of bodily tension and psychological stress, as well as in dramatic shifts in understanding and insight.
In this highly accessible guide, Dr. Eugene Gendlin, the award-winning psychologist who developed the focusing technique, explains the basic principles behind focusing and offers simple step-by-step instructions on how to utilize this powerful tool for tapping into greater self-awareness and inner wisdom. As you learn to develop your natural ability to "focus," you'll find yourself more in sync with both mind and body, filled with greater self-assurance, and better equipped to make the positive changes necessary to improve and enhance every aspect of your life.

Industry Reviews

"An original, innovative, exciting book."--Carl Rogers, Ph.D. "A superb manual for self-managed therapy . . . a tool beyond price."--Brain-Mind Bulletin

Focus while reading


I would say that you need to persist with this book. It's very repetitive but its intention is interesting and helpful.
