- Focusing has changed my life! Now I am able to navigate the highs and lows of everyday living .... especially of course the lows. I am able to put into perspective those feelings that would taken me over, recognizing them as coming from parts (or somethings in me) that want to be heard and acknowledged. In that process, I can almost always find my sense of self, or felt sense, of a positive being with a purpose. That's how powerful the Focusing process has become for me.~ Jane Treuhold, New York, NY
- "I have included Ann Weiser Cornell’s Focusing work in Intuition Training classes with excellent results. I see the Focusing technique as an invaluable tool for serious students of the inner life (particularly psychic/intuitive training)."~ Helen Palmer, author of The Enneagram
- "Since I have been Focusing, I have become more aware of the vague signals my body sends me. That first twinge of discomfort in certain situations, or that simple sense of joy around some people. In fact, I feel like I have developed a close relationship with my inner self (child) through Focusing. I like that, it makes me feel more complete."~ Marie Napoli
- "I found myself going into an important meeting carrying anger and frustration over an incident with another person. Through a rather brief process with Ann I found that I could find the place in my body where anger resided, remove it and resolve not to permit it back in. I attended the meeting with clear, calm attention. In addition it has been months and I have not been encumbered by that incident."~ Jerry
- "I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the priceless gift of Focusing. The difference it has made in my life -- and continues to make -- is phenomenal. It has opened up many doors for me and there is a great deal of power behind those doors. ... For the first time I can look at what is inside of me and answer some of the problems I’ve been tripping over for so long. And through it I am learning to love and appreciate myself. I like to think of Focusing as the flower that shattered the stone."~ Larry Stearns
- "This is a wonderful process -- it’s real, it’s simple, you don’t need to be an expert to do it. It’s very empowering"~ Jeffrey Mishlove
- “Thank you so much for nurturing focusing along and creating such a beautifully accessible way to learn it. I think it is not only best thing since sliced bread.... it is the best thing since bread itself. Thank you, thank you!.”~ Nora Wayman, LCSW, Bend, OR
