Focusing and Insight meditation have in common a willingness to sit with one’s experience from a place of presence, acceptance, warmth and curiosity. The most significant difference between the two practices is the presence of the partner or companion and the use of spoken words in Focusing to convey one’s experience to the companion. The presence of the companion and her reflection of the spoken experience of the Focuser enables a deepening of connection with, and unfolding of, inner experience.
