Felt-sensing occurs in us every day

Eugene Gendlin gives an example of how felt-sensing occurs naturally:

"Imagine you have that funny feeling that you have forgotten something, a kind of inner discomfort or conflictual feeling inside yourself that just won’t go away. You scrunch up your face, bring your hand to your head, searching around inside of yourself. Not this, not that . . . and then, suddenly, “oh yes, it’s that!” Ah ha—you and that feeling have made contact. You are left with a sense of resolution for now understanding (i.e., being able to communicate) something that had been disturbing and unknown before." Gendlin, E. (1981). Focusing. New York: Bantam Books.

Focusing is a method for directly accessing this kind of knowing. With training or support, you can find the entry point to your embodied knowledge. After that, you can become able to stay long enough to interact with it. and surprising new steps of change, thought, and action can come from it.

Focusing is supported by a long series of operational research studies conducted first at the University of Chicago and now internationally.
