How can we make a change in our unconscious, consciously?

How can we attract the right people and things to us?

How can we take our lives a step further even when the future does not function as safe ground?

A change in the body is a change in the cosmos — it is a change in the Forces attraction of the subconscious.

The body mediates between our awareness and the occurring. In Focusing, When we turn in with an issue or a question, a 'Felt Sense' forms. A 'Felt-sense' is all the external and personal relevant information, that the body crystallize to one concrete feeling that we can relate to directly. When we have all the relevant information, it becomes clear what is the next step in our life.

Focusing is based on the life-works of Carl Rogers and Eugene Gendlin in research in psychology and philosophy.

 

Topics we will cover on the course:

1. Sensitivity in development - The body as a source for a development of a new sensitivity to the environment in an unexpected constant change.

2. Getting familiar with a new space where a Felt Sense of the whole situation forms.

3. Creating a safe ground for the creation of the next step in our life process.

4.The next step - the step that changes the process of our lives towards what it hinted at.

5. The internal critic and radical acceptance of everything (Ann Weisser Cornell).

6. Deliberate Letting-Go - dealing with barriers of the change.

7. The answer at the end of the book.
