The Power of Focusing (Ann Weiser Cornell) – Part 1

Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove
S1:Ep3424 mins2000Guest: Ann Weiser Cornell

Can you focus? Ann Weiser Cornell, author of The Power of Focusing, discusses the psychological technique that she has been using successfully for decades, and explains that focusing is less like projecting and more like listening with your attention.

First developed by Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago, Ann explains that to find this type of focus we must cultivate self awareness, specifically moments of subtle, open psychological inquiry. When turned inward, this practice is also an important key to successful therapy, being willing to experience the unknown and be present with whatever we experience before our mind explains it.
