Focusing Emptiness is a story about the impact a traumatic childhood can have on the way in which a life unfolds. Weaving together lived experience with the mytho-poetic language of the unconscious, it follows Michael, who in his early teens, boards a bus for one of the most dangerous places in the world: wartime Vietnam. Michael’s early family drama crafted an inner world of fantasy, masking his ability to see the reality of what he has gotten himself into. His life becomes a collision course with reality…and reality will win. How does he survive himself long enough to find his way back to the lost child on the other side of his fantasies? Is it possible to reclaim and heal his damaged inner world? Focusing Emptiness is a profoundly honest exploration of wounding and repairing the inner landscape.
