          Abstract.

          In the Biocentric Health Management Theory of Stueck (2020), six biocentric fields of action are defined, which ensure the functioning of autoregulation (balance between activation and deactivation, adaptability) and autopoiesis (sustainable leaps in biological development) in the immune hormone and central nervous system. These biocentric core activities (Stueck, 2020) then spread into the psychological dimensions of emotion, motivation (action) and cognition and influence the mental health and identity of the individual. The special focus of the biocentric worldview lies in the “network character” of the “view of life”, in contrast to the hierarchical dominance of the human being in the center of being. The biological genesis of identity and the fundamentals of the biocentric worldview are decisively based on the theoretical and practical work of Toro, the founder of the Biodanza method. They are also influenced by the research by Cavalganthe and Wagner (2003), by Maturana and Varela (2000) on radical constructivism and the “embodied” knowledge process, Morin and Freire, on holistic perspectives in education and natural sciences, Schweitzer and Naess relating ethical action and nature, Lavelock on the theory of the earth as a “living organism” and last but not least through the research work by Stueck and Villegas (2008, 2020) on the empirical effectiveness of the Biodanza method for various target groups (adults, children). This article introduces the psychometric measurement of the biocentric fields of action defined by Stueck (2020). Affective communication, lively physicality, identity and inner orientation, connection to the big picture, experience and expression of life potential, ethical action and awareness of the connection to nature.
