In nature everything grows, everything expands. I have organic apple, pear, cherry, and peach trees on my property. When they grow new wood and branches and they produce vibrant flowers and fruit, it is a sign of health. We are nature and we are also healthiest and enjoy life the most when we are growing and expanding! Just like in nature, if we are not growing, we are dying. So when we help people (or ourselves) to imagine a life, an adventure, that would give them more joy, more satisfaction and more meaning in a way that is in harmony with who they are as unique, one-of-a-kind individuals and then support them to take steps towards their dreams, this is what I call "HEALING".
 
New Beginnings for the New Year with IIST
Dear friends and colleagues,

 

In nature everything grows, everything expands. I have organic apple, pear, cherry, and peach trees on my property. When they grow new wood and branches and they produce vibrant flowers and fruit, it is a sign of health. We are nature and we are also healthiest and enjoy life the most when we are growing and expanding! Just like in nature, if we are not growing, we are dying. So when we help people (or ourselves) to imagine a life, an adventure, that would give them more joy, more satisfaction and more meaning in a way that is in harmony with who they are as unique, one-of-a-kind individuals and then support them to take steps towards their dreams, this is what I call "HEALING".

 

In this process I have learned a tremendous amount about the nature of DESPAIR and how it is often PAIRED with our DREAMS. Despair tells us that no matter what we do we cannot have our dreams. We cannot have what we long for...what we desire. So when we begin to imagine, with all of our senses, a life we would love MORE, we are beginning the process of putting out new branches on our tree with blossoming flowers and fruit, and we often run smack into despair - especially when we begin to think about taking concrete steps to more fully realize our dreams. My teachings are about helping ourselves and our clients to navigate the terrain of despair, fear, and anxiety so we can become more FREE through growing in the direction of our dreams.
 
Our BIG MINDS have the absolute certainty that we can create our lives to more resemble our dreams. When we have absolute certainty that we can create what we envision, and our vision is in harmony with our unique one-of-a kind selves, and we use our WILL (right use of WILL) to support both our BIG MIND and TAKING ACTION in service of our clear vision every day ... there is, as my beautiful daughter Veronika stated to me in her latest email: "THERE IS NO STOPPING ME!" And this was almost immediately following what some might consider a big rejection of her Dreams. (-; She CHOSE to continue on with continuing on with the BIG MIND! 
 
Our SMALL MINDS, when we allow them to be in charge, use our creative life force for protection and a false sense of safety. They do their best to keep us from going for our dreams and thus protects us from rejection, disappointment, and being disheartened. 
 
In essence our SMALL MINDS keep us trapped in the shell we are presently living in and our BIG MINDS help us to be more free. 
 
COME AND EXPERIENCE through movement, writing, and subtle energy exercises and demonstrations, THE DIFFERENCE between CREATING and LIVING the LIFE YOU LOVE MORE by USING THE BIG MIND, which works in partnership with the universe, and USING THE SMALL MIND, which creates isolation from the universe.
 
If you are a health professional, this may be of special interest to you as we know from IIST (Integrative Immune Strengthening Therapy) and the work of Dr. Larry LeShan, Dr. Bernie Seigel, Dr. Carl Simonton, etc. that living life more fully is perhaps the most powerful thing you can do to mobilize your immune system, maximize your health, and possibly even help you to overcome illness.*

For those of you that are interested in a more in-depth experience of IIST, there is a 4-day seminar from April 16-19. Click here for more information.

These classes are for educational purposes only. Registration for the 4 day seminar is limited to health care providers. Even though Rob Jokel is a physical therapist, he will not be teaching physical therapy during this workshop. The workshop may be taped or recorded and participation may be included in that recording. Participation as a volunteer for a demonstration does not in any way substitute for receiving necessary medical or psychological care.
