Hedy mentioned her upcoming training on presentation skills.  Hedy has been the most important teacher of my life.  She teaches at a level that Ken nor I have ever experienced before or since.  She doesn’t just share interesting information- she transmits information in a way that lands in you so deeply that it enters your whole being, not just your brain.  That information sticks even years later.  She teaches the art of being truly present to the people or person in the room with whom she is in communication.  I let all my friends in the area who counsel, coach and present know about her training.

Free Webinar for Therapists: “Unraveling the Survival Knot of Couples” with Hedy Schleifer
Jul 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

I am very excited to invite you to join a free Webinar I am hosting called Unraveling the Couple’s Survival Knot.” It will take place on Friday, July 27, 2018 at 1:00pm Eastern time. 

The “Survival Knot” is the principle stuck place of the couple. This “knot” is the unconscious, and yet essential, agenda embedded in the “problem” with which the couple appears in the office of the therapist.

In this one-hour Webinar, I will reveal the step-by-step roadmap for entering the most treacherous territory of a couple’s relationship, at the heart of their disconnection. It is what couples experience as their “impasse issue,” where one person’s anguished desperation meets the other person’s dogged resistance, and vice versa.

In this Webinar you are going to learn: 

  1. A well delineated roadmap to assist couples unravel the “survival knot”
  2. An introduction to the metaphor of the variety of “neighborhoods” of one’s expanding world
  3. The meaning of teaching a couple the “Art of Hosting” and the “Art of Visiting”

Register below to join me on Friday, July 27, 2018, at 1:00pm Eastern time for the “Unraveling the Couple’s Survival Knot” Webinar.  

I look forward to this Webinar event with excitement and joy,

  • a unique structure that Hedy has developed for jump-starting a couple’s relationship in two full days, thus eliminating months and sometimes years of therapy.

You will leave the training with new tools, increased expertise, enhanced skills, and a clear vision of how to achieve an even more relaxed and responsive therapeutic stance with your couples.

I watch Hedy Schleifer open the room and from the moment we make eye contact I feel in full focus. I feel seen, valued and connected. She is teaching us about Presentation Skills – a very unworthy title! Within the first hour of a two day workshop the transformation begins. Through the power of connection and Hedy’s gentle but unrelenting attention to every detail of my presence, we are discovering together the edge of my growth. I am not alone. There are more than 30 of us.

 

When I take a big risk to step into the open space and test out my capacity to present to the group I feel a combination of nervous excitement, and complete trust that Hedy will catch me just before I begin to fall. I feel like a little toddler in the exploration stage so excited to explore this new world of authentic connection within a group, yet knowing I can turn back and find those eyes sending messages of encouragement, and support nudging me to step fully into my essential being. What a gift!

Hedy's TED Talk

On Monday, April 26, 2010 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Hedy Schleifer was invited to be one of the influential 20 minute lecturers at the TEDxTelAviv Conference. If you have trouble viewing this video here, you can go directly to http://www.youtube.com/hedyyumi.


Hedy mentioned her upcoming workshop in NYC (2/20 and 2/21) on presentation skills.  As most of you know, Hedy has been the most important teacher of my life.  She teaches at a level that Ken nor I have ever experienced before or since.  She doesn’t just share interesting information- she transmits information in a way that lands in you so deeply that it enters your whole being, not just your brain.  That information sticks even years later.  She teaches the art of being truly present to the people or person in the room with whom she is in communication.  I told her that I would let my friends in the NY area who counsel, coach and present know about her training.

Training for Therapists – EcCT Advanced Training (5 days) in JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA
Aug 15 @ 9:00 am – Aug 19 @ 6:00 pm

This Advanced 5-day training in Encounter-centered Couples Therapy is centered on the “HOW” of unraveling the “SURVIVAL KNOT” of couples.

Hedy: "Many couples arrive to me after many sessions of Couples Therapy, which has not touched the core of their conflict and disconnection. Couples Therapists are not trained in how to do this. Out of my own experience of many years as a Couples Therapist and my evolution of Encounter-centered Couples Therapy (EcCT), came an original method for dealing with the core issue of couples. I call the method “UNRAVELING THE SURVIVAL KNOT.”

As part of this highly experiential training, Hedy will be working in-vivo with a couple, in a fish bowl setting. She will be guiding the couple step by step in opening up the energy caught in their impasse issue, where their deepest need meets the partners’ most powerful defense. Throughout the training, attendees will be exposed to Hedy’s unique inspiring teaching style. It will create an opportunity to learn about the method of helping couples in the place where they need most help, their core issue, their “SURVIVAL KNOT.” Therapists will leave the training with an expanded grasp of the theoretical, clinical, and philosophical implications of welcoming couples into their deepest intimacies.

Tuition is $695 for therapists, $625 for Imago Africa members, & $345 for non-therapist spouse/partners.

Prerequisite: Open to therapists who have previously attended one of Hedy's EcCT or Tikkun Trainings, and/or an Adventure in Intimacy workshop.

Location: South Africa - Genesis Suites & Conferencing
10 Sandler Rd, Johannesburg, 2192 South Africa.
If you need overnight lodging, please make your guest room reservation by contacting reservations at res@genesishotel.co.za or +27 11 274 5300.
