Your Body Knows the Answer


how can you make a change

when you don't even know where to start?

Mindful Focusing gives you access to a deep source of knowing within you by engaging your body’s subtle capacity for “felt sense.”



"David Rome has mastered Focusing, a method for using the body's wisdom to navigate life's major decisions. Your Body Knows the Answer makes this invaluable tool available to us all."  

- Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus

For Meditators & Mindfulness Instructors - A Missing Link

The practice of Focusing can provide a bridge from your meditation cushion to daily life and an antidote to "spiritual bypassing", the tendency to fall into using meditation as an anesthetic or avoidance mechanism, rather than a tool for genuine awakening. 

I feel happier than I’ve felt for years and so buoyant.
— Evelyn R.


For Therapists, Coaches & Counselors - Steady Presence

Bringing mindfulness to your focusing or therapy sessions helps you cultivate a very stable and clear presence for your partners and clients. This gently alert, spacious presence can greatly enhance your ability to provide the atmosphere and steady attention your client needs to sustain and more deeply enter the focusing process.

There is much talk these days of ‘self-empowerment.’ I feel that you have shown us is true self-empowerment.
— Actana B.

For Teachers, Leaders & Social Activists - Connecting for Real

Whether you are part of a non-profit organization or an individual looking to bring real solutions to the challenges our world faces, Mindful Focusing can give you keys to more effective engagement. David has worked with educators (from K-12 to University), health care workers, and social service workers and can work with you to design talks, trainings, meetings or retreats to suit your needs.

This is something I can practice on the job when dealing with people and the stories I have about them and how I want them to be. I can drop the story and just be with them and listen.

For Artists & Writers - Open the Door to Creativity

Are you working on a creative project and not sure how to proceed or wondering what your next creative endeavor should be? Or maybe just uncertain about how to balance your creative life with the demands of daily living? Mindful Focusing can bring fresh insights, open the door to creativity, and unstick mental blockages. 

I learned how to find the patterns that block me.
— Ann M.
Thank you for opening a new door to my path, so rich and promising...getting unstuck enough to make a small step in the right direction gives me a huge relief.
