The 2016 USABP Conference will investigate the discovery of our embodied spirituality and the connections of bodymind therapy with other path-breaking fields such as transpersonal psychology, ecopsychology, and the traditions of spiritual healing. Also to be investigated are the challenges of working with sexuality in the context of bodymind practice — how is our sexual life, and the sexual lives of those whom we help in the clinical setting, to be integrated with our emotional, spiritual and somatic being-in-the-world.
Eugene T. Gendlin received his Ph.D. in philosophy in 1958 from the University of Chicago where he became an Associate Professor in the departments of Philosophy and Psychology. He taught there from 1964 until 1995. He is best known for Focusing and for Thinking at the Edge, two procedures for thinking with more than patterns and concepts.Gendlin’s two major philosophical works are Experiencing and the Creation of Meaning, which develops explicit ways of approaching the implicit; and A Process Model, which demonstrates this method by developing a body of consistent concepts for thinking about organic processes, with implications for thinking about space, time, science, genetics, ethology, consciousness, language, and spirituality.
