BIO-TOUCH — Opening the Gift for Humanity

With Paul Bucky

Open to the Public — Admission cost: $5

Bio-Touch is a gift to humanity. It’s a unique touch-healing technique for all people, because it’s simple to learn and everyone who uses Bio-Touch is effective. There are no masters or gurus—everyone is equal. And Bio-Touch is profound; it’s the gift of remembering that we are love and are all connected.

This gift of Bio-Touch can be opened for all of us this evening when Paul Bucky explains the power of Bio-Touch, and about his own experiences with it. He’ll describe how he was led to meet the creator of the technique, and what sparks his passion, 27 years later, to continue teaching and sharing Bio-Touch with the world.

BIO
Paul Bucky’s personal story is as unique as Bio-Touch, the touch healing technique that he shares around the world.

Paul is a first generation German-Jewish American man. His father was born and raised in Germany, a member of a dynamic and enterprising family. His grandfather, Walter Bucky, owned a large, successful department store in Hamburg and his great uncle, Dr. Gustav Bucky, was a radiologist in Leipzig who invented a type of x-ray image machine still in use today. But fearing for their lives in the political climate of 1939, the Bucky family escaped the Nazi regime in Germany and emigrated to the U.S.

Paul was born and raised in Los Angeles, growing up in an affluent home in an idyllic community that shielded him from the knowledge of injustice in the world. Yet, by the age of five, he’d already started on his lifelong spiritual path, possessing a deep, inherent understanding and compassion for the suffering of others.

After graduating from college, Paul left the world of materialism behind, living simply and studying the mystical traditions of the world: Sufism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Kabbalah, and the Course in Miracles. He was involved in numerous social movements and was greatly influenced by leaders like Cesar Chavez, Henry Thoreau, Krishnamurti, Shakespeare, Yogi Bhajan, Murshid Samuel Lewis, Ram Dass, and Carlos Castaneda. This path led him to explore many holistic healing modalities including Reiki, Quantum Touch, Healing Touch, Johrei, iridology, sclerology, reflexology, acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, kinesiology, yoga and meditation.

However, it was Bio-Touch that brought together all the philosophies Paul had studied, and boiled them down to a single concept—a simple loving touch uniquely designed to be shared by everyone. Grounded in this deep awareness, Paul has spent his life leading others to their own self-awareness through Bio-Touch. He believes Bio-Touch is a gift to humanity that can heal the hearts, minds, and bodies of all.

“Bio-Touch is my life,” Paul avows, which explains his passion, dedication, and inexhaustible energy for bringing Bio-Touch to all humanity. “I firmly believe in the goodness of life on Earth and the possibility for loving relationships between all sentient beings.”

Paul happily fulfills many roles. He is a student, teacher, healer, organizer, businessman, and the Founder/Executive Director of the International Foundation of Bio-Magnetics, a non-profit educational foundation based in Tucson, Arizona. He also serves as a public speaker for health and healing symposiums, support groups, television, radio, and multi media interviews.

Paul’s fascinating life story and how he developed his vision for Bio-Touch awareness around the world is described in the book Bio-touch: Healing With The Power In Our Fingertips by Debra Schildhouse.

ELEVATING YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS: The Secrets to 12-Step Spiritual and Moral Recovery

The 12 Step Recovery method is not designed to alleviate someone from an addiction to alcohol, drugs, pornography, junk food, shopping, gambling, etc. The 12 Step method, identified by professional psychologists as “Moral & Spiritual Psychology”, is designed so anyone who applies the stepwise sequence will achieve a spiritual and moral awakening. Psychological methods work well for those who have the wherewithal to comprehend and follow directions, however most people that are experiencing any form of a psychological or emotional problem usually are lacking the ability to correct their situation by will power alone. The 12 Step method employs the use of a supernatural higher power of the applicant’s own invention and understanding. With the help of an omnipotent spiritual entity and another spiritually awake person who has successfully applied the 12 Step process, the psychological tools are successfully employed which consequently raises the applicant’s consciousness to a level where such addictions and amoral behavior are no longer relevant. Some of the principles of 12 Step spiritual awakening methods and 12 Step recovery organizational concepts will be presented.

Steve has written several books about the 12 Step Recovery and Organizational process and they will be for sale in the lobby or at Amazon and Createspace online bookstores.

*The Bill Wilson Paradigm – A Blueprint for the Next Generation
*A Few Good Men & Women – 12 Step Spiritual and Moral Recovery for U.S. Active Duty, Dependents, Retired and Veterans
*Character Development – Impulsive, Compulsive, Obsessive Personality Excitement Disorder Integrated Recovery Program
*A.N.G.E.R. – Anger Nullification Group Effort Recovery
*C.A.R.B.S. – Carbohydrate Addiction Recovery Battalion System
*Escape from the Addiction to Pornography – A Way Out
*Word of Mouth Democracy for the 99% – A Corporate Spiritual Democracy

BIO
While serving in the U.S. Air Force, Steve H. was introduced to 12 Step Recovery Programs and successfully stopped drinking and smoking. It has taken Steve another 35 years of hard knock experiences to recover morally and spiritually and it is still a work in progress. Although Steve has been academically capable in his work and studies, he remained morally and spiritually impoverished in most of his life activities and relationships. Only sheer desperation and emotional bankruptcy motivated Steve to learn more about morality and spirituality and apply those principles in his life. Writing has been essential to Steve’s learning and monitoring the progress of his moral and spiritual advancement. Steve has written several books mostly for his own edification but also cheaply available to anyone who may want or need such information. To respect the traditions of 12 Step Recovery Programs, Steve presents this information anonymously. Steve does not represent any official 12 Step Recovery organization.
