Gendlin Quote


Here is a wonderful quote by Eugene Gendlin about the often discussed and contemplated Felt Sense.  The bodily feeling focusers know as the felt sense can seem mysterious because so many people experience it individually. Here is the description Gene gives it:

“A felt sense is the holistic, implicit body sense of a complex situation… A felt sense contains a maze of meanings, a whole textile of facets, a Persian rug of patterning – more than could be said or thought. Despite its intricacy, the whole felt sense also has a focus, a single specific demand, direction or point… One single thing, one statement, or one next step can arise from the whole of it all…”
