The Wholebody Focusing Story, Part 1 – Wholebody Focusing

The Wholebody Focusing Story, Part 1 – Wholebody Focusing | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
focusing_gr's insight:

Kevin McEvenue and Glenn Fleisch

This article is in two parts. The first part is the story of my (Kevin’s) experience of combining two disciplines: the Alexander technique and Focusing. This integration, that I call Wholebody Focusing, has been unfolding and continually reinventing itself over the last twenty-eight years. In this article I want to demonstrate how the key elements of Focusing have transformed my experience of the Alexander technique and how the Alexander technique principles—how postural use affects body functioning—have enriched my Focusing experience in very specific ways.

Back to Basics, Wholebody Focusing: The Whole is Greater than its Parts – Wholebody Focusing

Back to Basics, Wholebody Focusing: The Whole is Greater than its Parts – Wholebody Focusing | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
focusing_gr's insight:
Prologue

We are all survivors and I want to suggest that this is truly remarkable. Every last one of us has learned how to survive and function in the particular life we each find ourselves in. And here we are alive today. To congratulate ourselves for this feat is not to overstate but to name and recognize our genius in our ability to adapt to life and to develop skills that are exquisitely right for what is needed for us to function in our world more or less adequately.

We never question this ability. We take it for granted because it starts so young, until one day something happens and then the whole thing, our skill and our sense of our own ability are thrown into question. The event could be a simple thing, it could be something dramatic like an accident or a breakup, or it could be something gradual like the aging process. Whatever it is, what is real is that suddenly our ability to function and to know what to do comes into question. Depending on the situation, and the way we handle ourselves, this could come as quite a shock to our whole system, our whole survival system, even though we know it isn’t about our survival, but it feels like it is. We often panic at the very moment we need to be clear and centered, all because we don’t know what to do and we feel helpless in that frustration.
