In this eight-week in-depth study and practicum, we will explore the practice of BioSpiritual Focusing, based on the book written by Fr. Peter A. Campbell, Ph.D. and Fr. Edwin M. McMahon, Ph.D, entitled, Rediscovering the Lost Body-Connection Within Christian Spirituality. Each evening will highlight key topics of specific chapters and include a group discussion on these topics and chapters. Also, we will offer actual focusing sessions led by experienced companions. Over the course of this study, you will become more aware of the sacred story you carry in your own body and the movement of grace in your life.
Prerequisite: Basic familiarity with BioSpiritual Focusing is necessary, BioSpiritual Focusing: Day of Presence or Weekend Retreat is recommended.
You will also need to have a copy of Rediscovering the Lost Body-Connection Within Christian Spirituality.
