Focusing offers one of the most subtle and far-reaching processes for developing emotional intelligence. It encompasses how we think, what we feel and need, and the impulses which condition how we act and behave. In addition, Focusing opens up the more mysterious aspects of our inner interactions, such as experience which has no obvious language to describe it (the felt-sense), metaphor and symbol, body-wisdom, implicit knowing and intuition.
‘Experience is a myriad richness.
We think more than we can say. We feel more than we can think. We live more than we can feel. And there is much more still.’
Eugene Gendlin (Founder of Focusing)
