“We live in a structural political context and it can help to sense ourselves within it…a political context enables private freeing steps beyond the usual limits.” – Eugene Gendlin

How might Focusing be understood as a liberatory process that enables a sense of carrying forward even within oppressive contexts? Can a Focusing-orientation facilitate an empowered awareness that supports individuals and social change movements in organizing for our collective carrying forward? This reflection will invite an exploration of how the wisdom of our inner unfolding and implicit understanding—intentionally accessed through the Focusing steps—can help us to foster communities and cultures of greater justice, care, and compassion.
