Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Power of Focusing clarifies an essential human skill many of us have forgotten and takes it a quantum leap farther along its evolutionary path. Here are germinal teachings and deep human wisdom expressed in a way that can improve anyone’s emotions, well-being, and life.”
—Dan Millman, author of Way of the Peaceful Warrior and The Laws of Spirit

“Ann Weiser Cornell approaches Focusing with moment-by-moment sensitivity and years of depth. This is one of the most powerful therapeutic techniques of which I am aware an may even be said to be the basis of all good therapy.”
—Jeffrey Mishlove, author of Roots of Consciousness and host of television’s Thinking Allowed

“Most people make life’s important decisions by using their intellect. They think and become logical. Thus their path in life becomes path-o-logical. As a physician, I know how important our feelings are. We store a lifetime of feelings in our bodies. If not felt and responded to, they lead to disease—once again, a state of pathology. Learn to focus, and let the wisdom of your body teach you what it feels like to be happy. The wisdom of this book can help you heal the pathology. This book is an excellent resource for healing your life and body while guiding you to your life’s true path.”
—Bernie Siegel, M.D.,author of Love, Medicine and Miracles; Peace, Love, and Healing; and How to Live Between Office Visits

“I have included Ann Weiser Cornell’s Focusing work in Intuitive Training classes with excellent results. I see the Focusing technique as an invaluable tool for students of the inner life, particularly psychic-intuitive training.”—Helen Palmer, author of The Enneagram
