This book is meant to lift you up...

...and place you down right where you want to be... It’s not simply what words the author chooses to leave his readers with, but more so the pure honesty that you can hear behind each page. This is an honest concept written by an honest therapist crafted into an honest book. And honestly, it’s good!" The review was written by Rachel Vitale, at New York University for the International Journal of Body Psychotherapy. Brought to my attention again today, It is most gratifying. Thank you Rachel for this review on 'Focalizing Source Energy: Going Within to Move Beyond: www.amazon.com/Focalizing-Source-Energy-Within-Spectrums-ebook/dp/B009I3RUB2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492515765&sr=8-1&keywords=michael+picucci

 

Transforming Capitalism:

According to my colleague Otto Scharmer at MIT, "After a year of disheartening setbacks, many activists and change-makers may feel that the critical goal of transforming capitalism is slipping out of reach. Yet, having just returned from a four-week trip to many sites and gatherings working on social, economic, and spiritual renewal, I feel that the opposite is true. There are more fascinating and eye-opening examples of this transformation emerging worldwide than ever before. What's missing...?"  www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/transforming-capitalism-seven-acupuncture-points_us_58e006cce4b03c2b30f6a6fa


 

Powerful Question

I just had a question from someone in our Focalizing Certification course. He asked, "In your experience, what is the opposite of FEAR, and what is the opposite of SHAME?"

I replied from Source, "Absolutely LOVE, and for shame the opposite is FREEDOM!"

Since our open source healing technology heals and creates through the cordial engagement of opposite energies in our organisms (people or collectives), this is an important question.

A Breath of Fresh Air

In the warped sense of civilization, and personal despair we have evolved to, hope still is alive. In the USA we have IONS.org, Presencing.com, Patchama.org, TheInstitute.org, theworldcafe.com, etc. and now in Australia (also w/a global reach) there is the Centre for the Future, http://www.cftf.co whose purpose is to help design and realize a world that works for everyone and in so doing, to enable humanity to evolve more consciously. I encourage all my readers to check them out as part of our future thinking and the choices we make in co-creating evolution that serves us.

Centre for the Future

A breath of fresh air: in the warped sense of civilization, and personal despair we have evolved to, hope is still alive. In the USA we have IONS.org, Presencing.com, Patchama.org, TheInstitute.org, the worldcafe.com, etc and now in Australia (also with a global reach) there is the Centre for the Future, whose purpose is ‘to help design and realise a world that works for everyone and in so doing, to enable humanity to evolve more consciously.’ I encourage all my readers to check them out as part of our future thinking and the choices we make in co-creating evolution that serves us.

Update: Focalizing Certification Webinar

Update: We are halfway through the Focalizing Institute 1st Focalizing Certification Webinar. There is a very alive sense in this very participatory process as this naturopathic healing and creative process demonstrates itself. It's quite amazing that participants from as far as Alaska, Ireland and China can so naturally absorb this simple human technology. As the course moves toward completion, there are already stirrings on the unique ways that these soon to be certified Focalizing practitioners will be sharing this meaningful process in their worlds. Stay tuned for future updates and trainings. www.theinstitute.org

Emerging Ritual in Secular Societies

Emerging Ritual in Secular Societies was published yesterday in London for world-wide distribution. I was elated to have Dr. Sonia Gomes review my chapter: "Michael Picucci contributes outstanding resources for the use of ritual in clinical practice as well as in intimate relationships. The case studies and research demonstrate the importance of respecting ritual timing, interpersonal resonance and our own biological rhythms. Integrating all of these aspects... was a stroke of genius!" Thank you Sonia for your kind words.

New Audiobook — Focalizing Source Energy: Going Within to Move Beyond

New audiobook, Focalizing Source Energy: Going Within to Move Beyond is now available through Amazon and Audible. I am announcing this new platform to access this profound healing process with great excitement. Click the book's cover to read and hear what the buzz is about.

This audiobook represents a foundational understanding of Focalizing and how it allows anyone to access Source Energy (our innate naturopathic intelligence). It conveys the knowledge and experience my clients and I have gathered in my research and therapy practice over the past 30 years. It is this experience that has allowed me to observe the ways in which Focalizing can resolve unhealed traumas, conditioned thinking, sexual and other internal energetic barriers.

As these aspects are addressed, we are able to access a higher cognition of living that brings us joy, pleasure and contentment quite naturally. And this audio book explains how the process works.

Thank you to everyone who has inspired me and contributed to the publication of this audiobook. And special thanks to @NickWerber for recording and editing the audio version.

It illuminates how to be gracefully in the moment by noticing that the act of 'Truth and Oneness' teaches us experientially that 'Truth Works!'

Making the Addiction Recovery Process Their Own

The sensibility in this article permissions the dissolution of a shame barrier for individuals who are drawn to making the addiction recovery process their own in a mature and perhaps novel way, courageously blending their innate intelligence without rigidity. Thank you to TheFix.com for this recent posting that sheds light on the ongoing landscape of transformation of addiction and recovery. Bravo!
