I could tell this book was going to change my life. Gendlin doesn't hide behind language or concepts to try to mystify and complicate something that happens everyday. Not that working with dreams is not complex and does not require great attention and openness. But this book is to point out that if all you really need is attention and openness--well, ANY of us can begin to understand and change our lives through thinking about our dreams. I can't recommend this book enough. ...more

A very practical guide. I do think you need to read and understand the focussing concept for it to work. I would have liked more theoretical and philosophical underpinnings but as a practical guide and a good illustration to use focussing techniques it does very well at working for practitioners and lay people concurrently

“Adopt a “split-level” approach to all instructions: On the one hand follow the instructions exactly, so that you can discover the experiences to which they point. On the other hand be sensitive to yourself and your own body. Assume that only sound expansive experiences are worth having. The moment doing it feels wrong in your body, stop following the instruction, and back up slightly. Stay there with your attention until you can sense exactly what is going wrong.

These are very exact instructions for how not to follow instructions!

And, of course, they apply to themselves, as well.

In this way you will find your own body’s steps, either through the instructions, or through what is wrong with them.”
