Focusing.org

“Focusing” is a process for helping your mind listen to the wisdom of your body. In any situation, your body is sending you information. Many of us don’t know how to open our minds to this information because it doesn’t follow the same logic as our cognitive mind. We have deeper wells of knowledge within us than we consciously know. Focusing helps to give us access to all of it.

We believe that every person deserves greater self-acceptance, better emotional balance, and more satisfying relationships.  Learning Focusing can vastly improve your life. In fact, we think that if everyone were to learn this simple skill, the world would be a calmer, clearer, better place!  To this end, we strive to make learning Focusing possible for people all over the world, in any economic situation.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a method of using meditation and yoga to cultivate awareness and reduce stress. It is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness, which is about waking up, being fully alive, and being present for the richness of each moment of our lives. Within this awakening, we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with stress.
