Searching for the Truth that Is Far Below the Search

focusing_gr's insight:

by David Rome 
Shambhala Sun, September 2004, pp. 60-63, 91-93.
 

Below the level of thoughts, concepts and even emotions are the subtle ways that life is felt directly in the body. David Rome explains how this “felt sense” is resolved through the practice of Focusing.

Why the Therapist is not Sherlock Holmes and the Beautiful Soul of Carl Rogers

Why the Therapist is not Sherlock Holmes and the Beautiful Soul of Carl Rogers | focusing_gr | Scoop.it

I found an old copy of On Becoming a Person at Encore Books a month or two
ago.  It is by Carl Rogers, the founder of client-centered psychotherapy,
and I have been reading it slowly ever since.  The first essay "This is Me"
is a list of the very humane things Rogers learned over his years working
as a therapist and researcher.  Perhaps the central piece, the motto of
client-centered psychotherapy is "I have found it highly rewarding when I
can accept another person."   Really accepting another person in his or her
otherness is at the heart of Rogers' vision of psychotherapy (and humanness
as far as he was concerned).  My supervisor and teacher, Sylvia, has been
telling me for the last year and a half that the greatest resource a
therapist has is the client; I might summarize her teaching to me as, "Be
curious.  Ask, ask, ask."  That is very much in the spirit of Rogers.  You
may, as a therapist, think you know, but rather than proceed with that

Focusing: An Interview with David Rome | Shambhala Times Community News Magazine | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
focusing_gr's insight:

“The theory behind Focusing is that the body knows a great deal more than the mind; it’s the realm of intuition. If you think about it, the body, the lived body, really is the entire history of the individual up to this present moment.”

David Rome is a Senior Fellow at Garrison Institute and former secretary to Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. This interview with David was conducted by Libby Weathers.
