Focusing Links

Visit the Focusing Institute‘s website for a wide-ranging introduction, and to peruse their bookstore. The Institute is the hub for all Focusing work. You’ll find most of Gendlin’s philosophy and psychology articles here.

You can find lots of material to introduce you to Focusing, and Inner Relationship Focusing, on Ann Weiser Cornell’s website.

Peter Afford also has a useful Questions & Answers page, in case you are new to Focusing.

The Institute of BioSpiritual Research has a rich site, with an abundance of introductory material. They have a knack for presenting Focusing in such straightforward language.

Also, you can do a search for Focusing trainers in your area, WORLDWIDE, at: focusing.org/trainers_search.

GENE GENDLIN’S PHILOSOPHY

If you are philosophically inclined, and want to begin to get a handle on the philosophical background to Focusing, you can read Robert Parker’s summary of the Philosophy of the Implicit. I recommend Rob’s courses on the book A Process Model.  ‘sherpaship’ to take you into the difficult terrain of Gendlin’s A Process Model, so I urge you to write to him to ask him about his on-line classes.

AUDIO-VISUAL

There are some very helpful introductory videos that you can stream, on Vimeo. (Thanks to Simon Do). Just search for ‘Gendlin.’ Likewise on YouTube, where Nada Lou has put up lots of short introductions to Gene’s work.

Good AV material on Focusing can be purchased from: The Focusing Institute’s Store, Ann Weiser Cornell’s Focusing Resources, and at Nada Lou @ Focusing in Focus.
