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."

MINDFUL FOCUSING benefits:
Meditators & mindfulness instructors - Therapists, coaches & counselors
teachers, leaders & social activists - artists & writers
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.
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.
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.
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.
