Publisher's Summary

Here is a breakthrough method of “unlocking the wisdom within your body” to solve specific problems and achieve dramatic personal growth and change. This original, innovative program of self-therapy enables you to tap into your deepest level of wisdom, the “gut-level” knowledge that already exists within your body. By accessing this subliminal body-mind awareness (or “felt sense”) that lies beyond thoughts and feelings, you can get to the root of the conflicts within you, gain a fuller comprehension of your unresolved problems, and solve them.

What is focusing? It is a technique of self-therapy that teaches you to identify and change the way your personal problems concretely exist in your body. Unlike methods that stress “getting in touch with your feelings”, there is a built-in test: each focusing step, when done correctly, is marked by a physical relief, a profound release of tension. Focusing guides you to the deepest level of awareness within your body. It is on this level, unfamiliar to most people, that unresolved problems actually exist, and only on this level can they change.

Both a practical guide and a powerful philosophy of personal growth, this effective, proven procedure has wide-ranging applications, including healing, education, business, creative pursuits, and problem solving.

    "Real Breakthroughs, I'm so glad I found this again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've listened to many self hypnosis and self development programs. I used to listen to tapes, and now I've graduated to Audible.

    I had this focusing tape and listened to it many times. I've looked for it several times on Audible, and I'm so glad it's now available, as I lost the tape (plus don't have a tape player).


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    On a couple of occasions I've had actual life changing breakthroughs of understanding doing this program. While I enjoy lots of different self development concepts and self hypnosis, this is the only one that has lead to a real epiphany.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this program to everyone. It's really different and really effective. I love it when I can find something like that.

    "Subtle but powerful"

    Focusing is an intuitive approach that works! Eugene's voice is perfect to guide in the process. I've listened to this a number of times and I know I will many more times!
