In his chapter Stop to appreciate Gene’s legacy and then step forward, (Senses of Focusing, Vol. I, Eurasia Publications) Akira Ikemi brings together his understanding of the philosophical origins of Focusing with his own experience as a teacher to shed new light on the six ‘movements’ of Focusing, demonstrating both how Focusing occurs naturally and exploring in more detail the 2nd to the 6th ‘movements’ as they are often are taught. He goes on to explain some of his own developments from Gendlin’s work—‘crossing with animals’, ‘space presencing’ and ‘Kanga Focusing’—and how his understanding of Gendlin’s work has led him to develop his own ‘separate channel’ of practice, while continuing to engage in discovery of the as-yet ‘unrevealed’ treasures of Gendlin’s heritage and legacy.
