Ann Weiser Cornell- Parts

by David Battistella | The Focusing Way Podcast

Ann Weiser Cornell on “Parts”

Recognizing parts and better understanding addiction.  In part two of our conversation with Ann Weiser Cornell, Ann shares in depth her own process with dealing with her own addiction.  Listen in as Ann shares intimate details of working through her process of working with parts and transforming this new understanding into inner relationship focusing teaching work.

In the early days of Focusing, Ann Weiser Cornell was getting her PhD in Linguistics at the University of Chicago when she met and studied with Eugene Gendlin, the originator of Focusing, starting in 1972. Learning Focusing with him has led to a lifelong process of discovery and personal development.

In 1980, Eugene Gendlin 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.
