21 September 2023 13:00 until 13:30
University of Sussex Campus - Meeting House, Chapel
Speaker: Jason Evans, Quaker Chaplain
Philosopher Eugene Gendlin, a colleague of Carl Rogers, was interested in the question of why psychotherapy doesn’t work better for people. He discovered in the 1960s that outcomes didn’t seem to depend so much on what the therapist did, as much as the attitude of clients seeking therapy.
By careful observation of what clients who were successful in therapy were actually doing, Gendlin was able to encapsulate this into a powerful psychotherapy approach and philosophy which he called “Focusing”.
In these guided meditations we will follow a safe and accessible version of Focusing, seeking insights from a “felt sense”, a bodily feeling that encapsulates your current situation. There is no need to disclose any details of your situation to anyone in these guided self-help meditation sessions.
