I found little about 'Focusing' on the two TMS Forums, even though many TMS-Experts or trauma experts build parts/or most of their therapy on Gendlins pioneer work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focusing I think it deserves an own threat, so I opened this one. I wrote a little more about my experience with focusing in post #48 of the "Importance of addressing childhood issues" threat: http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/the-importance-of-addressing-childhood-issues.451/page-3 It's also been extremely helpful to me to learn the right body posture (embodiment), which took only a few days. Most people unlearned it at some point as a child and disconnect their mind from their body. There's impressive research how our body posture affects our subconsious, optimism and thinking. Learning the right posture (I'm a couple of inches taller now) is very empowering. I can have more energy and concentration now if I need to, just by sitting well and upright (my fatigue is much less, since I don't sit like a fatigued person. Many studies show how the subconscious believes within minutes what the body tells it). I don't know any literature about this in english, but it's helpful to read the research about this, it's eye opening for example how people make different decisions when they sit differently or are more optimistic by sitting upright . Or more open and positive by having their palms face upwards (reminds us of waving somebody towards us) and more resistant and negative by facing their palms downward (reminds us of pushing away something). Our posture also affects which body parts get how much blood (a heat imaging camera shows this clearly).
