Bi-Focal Vision

In Psychosynthesis, the therapist will tend to work holding the concept of ‘bifocal vision’ in mind. The notion of this analogy is that, as with bifocal lenses, a shift in perspective enables insight into both the level at which the personality is operating (the close work) and the underlying influence of the Self (the distance work).

Bifocal vision offers an opportunity for a more balanced shift in perspective and insight that invites the practitioner to see the client through the lens of that client’s presenting issues, diagnoses or problems, while at the same time seeing what may be emerging for that person as a soul in search of realisation.
