An Online Class Facilitated by Irit Tessel
Part of The Focusing Highlights Series
(No special computer skill or equipment required. Class will be recorded for participants)
“People who wish to get well had better inspect themselves,
and find what experience, attitude towards life, and creativity
might arouse their desire to live and drive their immune system to fight.”
—Lawrence LeShan, Psychologist
There are times in life when we flow and feel connected to an inner source. But there are other times when our eyes grow dim. We feel demoralized, insufficient, and stuck.
Irit’s Focusing in Health approach reconnects us to Life Energy – that source of flow – to joy, curiosity, daring, and to our inner creative engine.
In order to heal illness, pain, or ongoing discomfort, we must heal life – nourish it. In addition to food and fitness, we need Life Energy, which is that sense of vitality we seek. The challenge is to return it to the menu, even if it often seems elusive. When our container fills up with more Life Force, one can attend to discomfort more readily.
Gendlin wrote that everything contains Life Energy, and that one must simply wait for it to appear. Yet, many of us do not take the time to wait before giving up. Let us find ways to make that connection a part of our quest.
In this workshop, Irit will share her approach as well as some case studies from her work, and offer participants an experiential exercise.

The video link will be an easy to use format called Zoom. You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred. All registered participants will be sent a link to the video recording approximately two weeks following the course. So if you are unable to attend in person, you will still be able to hear the class.

Irit is offering this class to support The International Focusing Institute. This live online class is pay-what-you-can. The suggested payment for US residents is $30. If you need to give less, that's fine, but we do require each participant to give something. Please give extra if you can! Thank you for supporting the Institute.
