Part of The Focusing & Thinking series
On Relating — In & Out of Therapy
a 5-week course on CD
with Eugene Gendlin & Ann Weiser Cornell
On Relating — In & Out of Therapy is for anyone who wants to explore different ways of relating with other people. We discuss each topic first in therapy settings and then in the more complex realm of close personal relationships. So many difficulties in relationship occur when we express feelings with trust and honesty, yet the other person feels hurt or angry, withdraws or attacks.
"We happen in the environment." By that, Gendlin means that any living body is interaction. It's not that
we have bodies and then they inhale air and take in food; there's not even a single cell that isn't already
interaction! Just as we can't survive without air and food, we also can't develop as persons unless we
interact and are interacted with, from the very start.
This is an edited version of a live, 5-week phone seminar with the creator of Focusing and one of his most well-known students.

Ann Weiser Cornell was getting her PhD in Linguistics at the University of Chicago when she met and studied with Eugene Gendlin, starting in 1972. In 1980, Gene invited Ann to assist with his Focusing workshops. This started her on a path to become a Focusing teacher, and in 1990, Ann became the first person to support herself full-time as a Focusing teacher. Today, Ann is internationally recognized as one of the leading innovators and theoreticians of Focusing. She is the author of The Power of Focusing and The Radical Acceptance of Everything.
