What is focusing? Based on research at the University of Chicago, focusing is a new technique of self therapy that teaches you to identify and change the way your personal problems concretely exist in your body. Focusing consists of steps of felt change. Unlike methods that stress "getting in touch with your feelings," there is a built-in test: each focusing step, when done correctly, is marked by a physical relief, a profound release of tension. Focusing guides you to the deepest level of awareness within your body. It is on this level, unfamiliar to most people, that unresolved problems actually exist, and only on this level can they change.
"A superb manual for self-managed therapy. . .a tool beyond price."--Brain-Mind Bulletin
I've made it look very easy (and it can be really easy like this).
For focusing to work I think it is necessary to have patience and an experienced person to give you advice and who can tell you if you're doing it right.
Many good teachers even offer Focusing instruction by phone, including an introductory session.
