Find wisdom, answers and healing, right where you stand.

Are you stuck in your head, always worrying and looking out there for answers? Do you sense your body is trying to tell you something, but don’t know how to listen? Are you looking for a new way of living in the world, that brings fresh answers, deeper empathy and radical self acceptance? In this guide, you will: 

  • learn a step by step journey to access our inner wisdom or intuition
  • learn how to meet any aspect of ourselves with empathy
  • develop day to day skills to live from kindness and curiosity

The Way of Curiosity is a practical and inspirational guide to accessing and living from the wisdom of the body. It offers ways of navigating feelings and emotions, critical voices and finding the quieter hidden wisdom that we all carry. In essence, it offers a pathway to emotional healing, deep change, fresh answers to old problems and radical self compassion.

The book is split into two parts: the first is a thorough and practical guide to building and developing curiosity about every aspect of ourselves. Part two is about applying this profound practice to specific and existential dimensions of your life. It is intertwined with real life examples from my own practice, quotes and anecdotes from over 20 years of teaching.

Based on the foundational work of Eugene Gendlin, the developer of “Focusing”, this new guide is for both seeker and practitioner, for anyone looking for a practice that will create lasting change in their personal and professional life. This is a much needed guide to coming home to your own body and the profound wisdom it carries.

Peter Gill is one of the UK’s foremost Focusing Teachers, and has been teaching for over 20 years.

"The Way of Curiosity is the perfect title for where the author is guiding our attention: to attend to our experience just at it is without judging ourselves. Embodying a profound clarity and simplicity, this book takes the reader on a journey to discover a compassionate self that can welcome and befriend our experience just as it is. Weaving personal stories and integrating hard-won learnings, this book will awaken you to the beauty and wonder of who you really are. It will guide you to navigate life’s challenges in a way that allows you to connect more deeply with yourself, others, and life itself. I highly recommend this well-written, illuminating book."
