“We are convinced that success in learning Focusing is rare without learning to exchange Focusing partnership sessions…. The principle underlying all of the applications of Focusing is that your inner sense of rightness, accessible through bodily knowing, is a reliable guide to moving forward. Focusing means learning how to develop that inner sense.”
     – Ann Weiser Cornell, PhD & Barbara McGavin, the Introduction to The Focusing Studentʼs & Companionʼs Manual (2002)

Focusing Listening Circles and Partnership Practice develop this bodily knowing.  In Focusing Listening Circles we often have a “Round Robin” where each of us has a short Focusing turn.  In Focusing  Partnership Practice we deepen and refine our Focusing, sometimes with a new person just for an hour, sometimes with a regular Focusing partner over many months and years.  Surprising results come, small steps bring us closer to how we truly want to live. Focusing becomes a trusted friend and reliable guide to moving forward.

Listening can also be a doorway to the deeper philosophy of Focusing. Perhaps you remember seeing  a child who falls, then looks around at others to see their reaction before starting to cry?  “…we first know ourselves as reflected in the other. One of the most interesting ideas we discussed in our study group is that our resonance with others may actually precede our awareness of ourselves. Developmentally and evolutionarily, our modern self-awareness circuitry may be built upon the more ancient resonance circuits that root us in our social world.”
– Dan Siegel, page 62, Mindsight (2010)
