Video 1 Try Gendlin’s Practical Focusing Exercise (Gain Self Awareness Now!)

Are you new to Focusing by Dr. Eugene Gendlin? Laura, Certified Focusing Practitioner and Teacher, will guide you on a brief experiential journey through the initial steps of Focusing. This is the first video in our Pausing and Sensing Series! You will experience the practical life skills of pausing and sensing. Don't worry if you think "I'm not getting it". Practicing these new life skills is like going to the gym to train our physical muscles. Except here, we're exercising our emotional muscles. Eventually, when these new muscles are more developed, you'll be able to utilize them daily and experience more self awareness, calm, and peace within your life. This exercise is merely a taste of the power of Focusing. We will build our superpowers of pausing and sensing as we continue learning the next steps of Focusing. There is much more Focusing to come! Contents 0:00 Introduction 1:09 Guided Exercise Want more self awareness, calm, and peace in your personal, professional or spiritual life? Get the ongoing support you deserve to thrive in life. We offer Individual Focusing Sessions and ongoing Day Workshops and Level 1 - 4 Courses. Learn how to cultivate the inner environment for real radical, lasting change! Book a Complimentary Consultation to see if it's a "good fit" for you. https://www.FocusingWithLaura.com Laura@FocusingWithLaura.com Professional Member in good standing with The International Focusing Institute. Focusing was discovered and developed by Dr. Eugene Gendlin, a contemporary psychotherapist and philosopher. Gendlin’s work is exceptional in the way that it bridges the fields of Psychology and Philosophy, Academia and Popular Self-Help. I’m deeply inspired by Dr. Carl Rogers, Dr. Eugene Gendlin, and Dr. Ann Weiser Cornell. Much gratitude. Many blessings to you on your path of self-help and personal improvement.
