Larry LeShan, Ph.D. researcher, writer, and lover…devoted his life to upgrading the human experience!


My dear friend, colleague, and mentor, Larry LeShan, died on November 10, 2020.

He was 100 years, 2 months, and 2 days old.

I feel his presence so strongly in my life.

Larry “was” 100…

It’s funny to say “was” as I still feel him here beside me as I write this. He may no longer be in his physical body…but for me…he is still here in “spirit.”

I met Larry in 1996 at The Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. He was teaching a workshop there on SUPERVISION for “seasoned” psychotherapists.

I knew of Larry because I used to teach workshops and a 3-year healing school, “Perceive and Heal the Human Energy Field,” in the 80s and 90s downtown on Canal Street. On the shelf there I saw a book by Lawrence LeShan, Ph.D….Cancer as a Turning Point. I read the back flap and it said that Larry had helped more than 50% of his patients with terminal cancer to survive 10 years or more. It seemed to state this statistic in a matter of fact way… very understated I felt.

How did the world…the mainstream…not know of his work. These results were phenomenal from my perspective! And I loved and respected RESULTS…especially miraculous results! Of course, I wondered if it were really true and if so, how did he do it? Could I get these results as well? I tried to find Larry and at the time was unable.

At some point in the 90s I began teaching “qigong+” workshops for people with cancer. Realizing my interest, a colleague gave me two audio tapes by Larry … Mobilizing the Life Force. She told me “I bought these tapes, but I think they were for you.” I listened to them right away. It was about Larry’s work with people who had late stage cancers…and I felt in complete agreement with EVERYTHING he said!

I agreed with all of his ideas on healing! If you know me, you know that never happens!

Open and Closed Subtle Energy Systems and Their Geometry

The profound effect they have upon our physical, emotional, mental, relational, and spiritual health

When I was 30 years of age I saw a green lightning bolt come out of someone’s shoulder. Spontaneously, I told this man his shoulder was healed because of what I had just seen.

Prior to this moment in time, I was voraciously studying, practicing, and teaching manual therapy based on joint biomechanics. I studied with many of the top authorities from around the world from the physical therapy, osteopathic, and chiropractic professions. I was going to be the best manual therapist possible!

Ok. Truth be told, I was going to be the best there was because I was so highly competitive at that time and it drove me – until one day I discovered this driving competitive dynamic in me, which worked so well in keeping me super passionate and motivated to learn more and to develop my ‘skills,’  was actually hardening my energy.

I had mixed feelings at that time. I was sad to be losing “an old friend” (that hard, competitive energy that drove me with such passion to be the best, that previously had seemed to be an essential part of who I was), but  I also was experiencing faith and a sense of knowing that, by softening more, I would become more effective at assisting people in their process of self healing.  It is now 35 years later and still I am continually learning this lesson – to soften.

Own Your Life!

Workshop with Robert Jokel
Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM and

Where: Mahopac, NY

Why am I so excited about this workshop? 
Because, when you OWN your NEEDS…you pretty much magically create more freedom and more choices.
Most of us respond to challenges with habitual emotions.
Some of us get angry … some get sad … some get anxious and fearful … etc.
And we usually have the same underlying NEEDS that DRIVE us.
Some people NEED to be respected or to feel significant.
Some people NEED to feel safe and secure.
Some people NEED to feel love and connection, etc.
Think about it? Which set of emotions do you usually trend towards; which NEED drives you the most?
What if we could explore or experiment with what it would be like to respond with a different set of emotions…or if we could try on for size what it would be like to be DRIVEN by different needs…like the need to Contribute and be in service to others or the need to love and be loved?
What if what DRIVES us were in ALIGNMENT with what we VALUE most???
How would our lives change?
This workshop is designed to help you experiment and “try on” different NEEDS, EMOTIONS, VALUES.
I imagine this workshop to be fun, poignant, and filled with lots of laughter as we “try on” other world views.
Because our world view is comprised of our NEEDS, our EMOTIONS, our VALUES, our BELIEFS, and the “stories” we tell ourselves.
In my experience understanding our world view helps us to create transformational change.
Can you say TELOS?
Hope to see you at the workshop!
Warmly, Rob

Release Emotional Energy Blocks and Heal

Dear friends,

If you knew me well, you would know that I tend to focus on what is “right” with the person instead of what is “wrong” and so it was interesting for me to be involved with a project where the primary focus was on an individual’s blocks instead of on their uniqueness or on their soul.

That being said, I highly respect every one of the presenters and believe there is valuable and useful information in these tapes. Getting different perspectives from experienced practitioners gives a broad background for us to develop our own conclusions. When I used to teach with Marjorie and we disagreed about some aspect of healing, it seemed that the class participants not only enjoyed the disagreement, but, more importantly, told me how much they learned from it.
If you are interested in the subtle energies of healing I highly recommend this series.

Using the Right MIND To assist you in manifesting your dreams.

If you are interested in, or are already on, the path to discovering your one-of-a-kind, unique self…

If you are interested in living more fully, with more meaning, purpose, and passion…

If you are curious about creating a vision for your life that is in harmony with who you are – as a unique one-of-a-kind human being…

And if you are interested in the influence that your thinking has on manifesting these dreams.

You may find it of great value, as I have, to experience how our thoughts affect our ability to manifest the life we want, and even more importantly which MIND we are using that is creating these thoughts.

A 100-day experiment/adventure where we manifest the life we want to live.

In this highly experiential workshop, we will focus on where we are now, where we would love to be, and what challenges must be met and overcome to traverse this gap towards our new upgraded life.

We will explore our thoughts, beliefs, and the actions we are now engaged in which have created the life we presently are living, and consider what our thoughts, beliefs, and actions would need to be if we are to create our new upgraded life.

How deciding, committing, and immersing ourselves in creating this change will help us to upgrade our lives.
