BIOSPIRITUAL FOCUSING – MYSTICISM FOR THE MILLIONS
In this presentation Fathers Ed and Pete explain how the body is that sacred, conscious bridge an integral, living cell within some Larger Body. That process, they believe, IS spiritual. It is what mysticism has always been about for thousands of years. You know you are not alone, but alive WITHIN some Larger Body with a past and a future, with an energy, a source of wisdom beyond what we are capable of thinking and manipulating.

EXPERIENCING THE GIFT (ANGEL FIRE)
In this multimedia presentation, supported by music, slides and photographs from his life experiences, Fr. Ed reflects on what the term BioSpiritual Focusing means to him, why he believes it is a gift to be shared with all people, and why he believes it identifies and nurtures the experiential common ground for a global spirituality.
In his address, Fr. Pete explores a fundamental spiritual issue of our time – the very meaning and experience of “spirit” as it relates to the human body. He challenges outdated models of soul and body. He suggests that spirit is a developmental human experience, that there is a body dimension to spirit, and he shows the connection by referring to Carl Rogers’ and Eugene Gendlin’s pioneering research on “the valuing process”.

FOCUSING WITH CHILDREN
This DVD was originally produced by the Institute for BioSpiritual Focusing in 1993. I am happy to offer the “Focusing in Focus” service to distribute this DVD.
A fifth grade classroom provides the basic setting as teachers guide the children in Focusing. A hand puppet brings the process alive. Spontaneous responses of the children when Focusing or commenting on process can be an eye opener for parents and adults. In one segment, a mother shares how she began Focusing with her children at home. This is an excellent introduction to Focusing with children for teachers and parents.

A NEW PARADIGM
Dr. McMahon begins this series with practical suggestions about how to develop the habit of felt sensing. People need to feel safe and respected before they will risk sharing a vague and as yet inarticulate felt sense.
Dr. Campbell uses simple illustrations to show what a paradigm is and how it functions. He looks at creative people who are the paradigm shifters in any society. Examining the process of their creativity he shows how new directions emerge for the future of spirituality.

THE ROAD AHEAD
Dr. Campbell begins by saying: “I believe that my exploration of the habit of felt sensing is really an exploration of the human experiencing which we generally call, faith. The precise question I am asking, however, is: What is faith when I cross over the bodybridge into my body’s knowing? What is faith when I move beyond beliefs, beyond my mind’s interpretations and thinking?
DR.McMahon This is a milestone presentation by a man who has dedicated his entire professional life to explore the implications of BioSpirituality and Focusing. Approaching the close of a long career, he now realizes he is being called further forward to learn entirely new “habit of felt sensing,” one that can open depths of faith and gratitude he never before imagined possible.

NURTURING A NEW INTERIORITY FOR SERIOUS SEEKERS
Fr. Peter’s hope throughout this DVD presentation is to open for exploration a link between the work of Eugene Gendlin’s Focusing process and the body’s role within BioSpiritual development. Meaning is not only thought in our minds, it appears as well from within our bodies knowing. For a long time theologians and Scripture Scholars have been exploring “a new kind of interiority for human beings” and a Biblical category of “Corporate Personality”. There is a largely unexplored connection between these two perspectives.
