with Derek McDonnell and Tadhg O’Lionaird.
1 DVD 28 minutes.

The process of using ‘Focusing’ as a modality in the building of resilience and problem solving practice among young people began, as a targeted response to behavioural management challenges and issues of emotional self-regulation, in the pursuit of better educational outcomes for students in a disadvantaged area primary school in Ireland.

Some Philosophical Concepts: Philosophy - Practice
This new two disk DVD set was recorded at the live conference in New York. Disk # 1 (77min) Some Philosophical Concepts: Philosophy - In this rich animated and meticulous presentation, Dr. Gendlin explains several concepts that are building blocks of his Philosophy. “The Philosophy of Entry to the Implicit” is a Model for the modern world which keeps sharp conceptual definitions but it also includes and builds on the implicit. In his words “ There is no ‘Is’. There is only ‘Is’ and ‘Implies’”. Dr. Gendlin conveys how he uses the words “body” and “implicit”. The body is already an interaction - and living things imply not just the next movement, they imply process – their own process. Disk # 2 (73min) Some Philosophical Concepts: Practice - A delicate and sensitive ”Experiential Demonstration” on this disk is preceded by a valuable introduction of Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy. In a lively discussion that follows, Dr. Gendlin answers many interesting questions. The discussion brings a whole additional elaboration about the close correlation of Gendlin’s Philosophy and the Practice of Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy.

Using case examples and experiential exercises, this DVD will help you to discover how Focusing can be a catalyst for experiencing health in the midst of illness. Read More...

Wholebody Focusing
with Kevin McEvenue. 1 DVD 114 min.
Wholebody Focusing is the innovative work of Kevin McEvenue, powerfully combining the principles of Eugene T. Gendlin's Focusing Process with the Alexander Technique. This DVD illustrates how Wholebody Focusing comes out of the blending of two processes - Alexander Technique and Focusing. Dr. Eugene Gendlin developed Focusing as a teachable way to access our own body knowing by paying attention to what he called a "felt sense". Felt sense can "open" into a whole field of intricate detail, from which surprising steps of change come. F.M. Alexander discovered the importance of activating a physical functioning that awakens the body as a whole towards a sense of expansion and inner flow. Wholebody Focusing puts these two pieces together in a way that enhances both. In Wholebody Focusing we get in touch with the self in a whole body kind of way. This invites spontaneous movement and a sense of inner direction. We can then allow any particular part of us that needs special attention to come into relationship with this Wholebody sense.
