Integrative Immune Strengthening Therapy (IIST)
An experiential workshop for healthcare professionals
With Robert Jokel, P.T.
April 16-19, 2015
"Rob Jokel has developed a unique and revolutionary way of helping patients make major improvements in the functioning of their immune system. Very often this leads to startling positive developments in overall health and symptom reduction.
"He has an effective way of teaching this approach to professional workers to a practical level of competency in a remarkable short time. Before the seminar is over, participants will find themselves successfully using the method on each other and experiencing its profound value on themselves."
Larry LeShan, Ph.D, psychotherapist, researcher, and the author of Cancer as a Turning Point, How to Meditate, and Landscapes of the Mind.
"Although I first met Rob during an intensely stressful time in my life, in December 2006, shortly after having been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer, what I have gained in working with him goes a quantum leap beyond my restoration to full health, beyond my immensely strengthened immune system, beyond being cancer-free. I was an experienced psychoanalyst when Rob and I first began working together. Attending his four-day workshop has enabled me to see a person's energy flow, energy manifestations and in so doing, I can work intensively with that person's energy, using my psychoanalytic framework. It has allowed me to penetrate intellectual and emotional constructs, in a way that directly touches the soul."
Merle Molofsky, a New York State-licensed psychoanalyst who teaches at two psychoanalytic institutes.
Come and experience for yourself the powerfully healing effects of IIST through demonstration, and the giving and receiving of this work, which includes dialoging, hands-on healing, movement, meditation, visualization and written exercises. Jokel has broken it down into structured steps that will allow you to integrate this work into your present profession.
Integrative Immune Strengthening Therapy is a method by which we learn to CENTER more solidly within our soul. When we live with passion and purpose from our soul, often we maximize our immune system strength!
We all know the feeling of music, art and poetry when it touches our soul. When a client speaks about themselves and what they truly want out of life and it RESONATES with the vibration of what we describe as soul, we encourage it........almost like biofeedback. And in this way, we help the individual to create a stronger connection to their authentic self. It allows space for their truly unique, one of a kind self, and allows their soul to emerge more fully. We have discovered that this way of working strengthens immune function. This often radically improves the chances for long term survival of an individual with cancer.
Stephen Covey, author of Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, would ask "What is deeply important to you?" Larry LeShan would ask "Who are you and what do you want out of life?" Jokel incorporates both of these views into his own, and asks about the vibration or the resonance of the soul, of a person's core, their essence; and of purpose. He helps you to explore ways you can nurture your soul by enhancing your adventurous spirit, expressing creativity, giving and receiving love, and cultivating a more loving and accepting attitude towards yourself. Jokel strives to encourage the person to center in their soul, as he believes that is the true center of a human being. He believes all therapies, including psychotherapy, massage therapy, craniosacral therapy, physical therapy and acupuncture, have greater effectiveness when the practitioner encourages the person to center in their soul. Our energetic systems are intimately connected with our physical bodies, and our physical and psychological health. We are looking to support a greater sense of freedom to be your whole self as a way of enhancing immune strength.
Covey and LeShan both speak about the importance of the ability to say no to others. Covey sees it as a way to maintain your word to yourself and others, while LeShan sees it as crucial to having a strong immune system. Covey says that when you have a bigger yes burning inside you, it is easy to say no. This work is about creating a bigger YES inside you!
"This is beyond technique to the very soul of healing for the individual as well as the practitioner."
"IIST helps me to practice acupuncture the way I believe Acupuncture was truly meant to be! Gave me the skills and the inner strength to be with the whole person. It helps me to live my life from the inside out so I can help others to do the same. It also helped me to perceive subtle energy ... to see with my other eye ... third eye ... to be able to read and see points ... acupoints ... able to see energy inside a person."
Emilia Cabrera, acupuncturist and herbalist, Miami, FL
"As a Physical Therapist I had studied manual techniques, cranial sacral therapy and visceral manipulation to treat patients in a broader spectrum than traditional therapy. I still felt there was a part that was missing in my approach. Rob's integrated approach (IIST) allowed me to change the focus of my treatment. I was no longer trying to "figure out "what the client needed, rather creating the space for the individual to find their own healing. The training created a whole different space for me to approach healing work for the client and also for my own personal process. I was no longer worn out treating clients or felt the pressure to push the process to a conclusion."
