Today, she is internationally known as one of the leading theoreticians, teachers, and innovators of Focusing, as well as the primary person combining linguistics and Focusing. Her previous book, The Power of Focusing, has been translated into six languages. Ann has taught Focusing and advanced Focusing topics in seventeen countries on five continents.Review:
Presence: A Guide to Transforming Your Most Challenging Emotions is a scintillating selection of the tips that Ann Weiser Cornell, the foremost Focusing teacher in the English-speaking world today, has been sending weekly for years to her many online followers. Each tip responds to a real question from a particular individual, yet all of them touch on universal themes, ranging from depression and avoidance to relationship challenges, anger, and feelings of shame and self-criticism. The key to resolving all of these challenges lies in our ability to be truly, lovingly present to ourselves - "Self-in-Presence," Ann calls it - and this book shows us how to cultivate this invaluable inner skill.
Presence is a user-friendly book, beautifully designed and illustrated, and written with Ann's characteristic clarity, directness, and warmth. It is a true feast for the soul, full of wise and practical recipes for living a fuller and happier life. --David I. Rome, Certified Focusing Trainer, leading Buddhist teacher & author of Your Body Knows the Answer: Using Your Felt Sense to Solve Problems, Effect Change, and Liberate Creativity
Emotional health lies not with arguing against, overcoming or rising above our emotions, but with understanding what they are trying to tell us, and using their enormous power constructively. In this lovely, warm, and elegantly written book, Ann Weiser Cornell shows people how they can be with even the most difficult and challenging emotional states and life situations and come out the other side richer, wiser, stronger, and more able to go forward in their lives. Reading this book is like having Ann's warm, reassuring voice right next to you showing you the way to reach the nuggets of wisdom and transformation within. It should be every Focuser's Focusing companion! --Helene G. Brenner, PhD, Psychologist & author of I Know I'm in There Somewhere: A Woman s Guide to Finding Her Inner Voice and Living a Life of Authenticity
Ann Weiser Cornell is a true pioneer in the field of Focusing, having taken the process to an entirely new and more integrated level. In this powerfully illustrated and even more powerfully written work she concisely outlines ways to deal with emotions. The processes she describes not only tame strong emotions but serve to transform them. By using precise pathways she and others have developed in Inner Relationship Focusing we learn how to get to the core of issues and unravel real-life emotional knots that keep us from achieving higher levels of development and integration of self. Though the concept is diffusing into other realms of knowledge, her work on Presence has been at the leading edge of a societal awakening to the embodied self in Western society. This book provides further depth of understanding what Presence is and how to bring it to every aspect of our lives. --Robert D. Sheeler, M.D.
