Open Focus Coaching

Open Focus instantly shifts your body from stressed to relaxed

It works by changing your brainwave pattern from beta (effortful, narrow focus) to alpha (relaxed attention), just by changing how you pay attention.  It’s a genius technique developed by the late Les Fehmi, Ph.D.   It’s how I’ve been dealing with the epic stress of the Covid.  pandemic.  And it’s how I’ve been helping clients deal with theirs, especially during those endless Zoom meetings.  They’ve been saying things like: “Oh, that IS better!  I can feel myself relaxing.”  “I feel like I just got a massage, inside.” “I feel completely stoned.”  “This makes such a difference.”

It’s effects are immediate and will increase as opening your focus becomes your new habit.  If you have a mindfulness practice, Open Focus will add to its effectiveness.  If you meditate, but aren’t seeing the results you’d hoped for, Open Focus will change that.

Give it a try – Two Ways

  1.  Now:  You can use it right now.  As you read this page, include your peripheral vision in your awareness. Effortlessly notice the white space around the words, the borders of the device you’re reading it on and what is beyond those borders, like the wall in front of you or the person next to you.  Just let what is in the space around you be in your awareness.

      2. In three free sessions: Fridays, December 3, 10 and 17, 2021, noon Pacific Time for 50 minutes

How we pay attention matters more that what we pay attention to

In terms of our physical response to stress.  The late Les Fehmi, Ph.D., discovered the simple formula in the late 1960s:  Shift from narrow, objective focus to broad, immersed attention and your brainwaves follow.  The alpha frequency is where we are meant to live from, but we are trained from infancy to focus narrowly until it becomes a habit we don’t know how to break.  The more we do it, the more our brains think there is an emergency and the physical stress response kicks in – shallow breathing, stress hormones, muscle tension, tunnel vision, black and white thinking.  Stress brings more stress and as we try to shift our narrow focus away from what is stressing us, we inadvertently add to our stress response.  But don’t take my work for it.  Come to the free sessions.
