  • How do I access the Master Class Tele-Class using Skype?

    To connect to a conference using Skype, you can either add the contact "Joinconference" to your contact list, or dial it directly without adding the contact first. You will have to type in the name with your keyboard, and no country designation is required. Once the call is connected, bring up the virtual dial pad to enter your host or guest pin code. While it does depend on your Skype version, the button to bring up the virtual dial pad usually looks like a picture of 9 small dots. Once the dial pad is open, you can click on the numbers with your mouse, or use your keyboard. If the system does not seem to understand the dial tone commands, you may need to sign out of Skype, and then sign back in and try the call again.

  • What is “The Law of the Magnets”?

    Some phenomena need empirical data to be well grounded in theory, and yet in the collective consciousness of humankind they seem perfectly natural. The discovery of the theory of Attachment is one such phenomena in the world of Psychology. The discovery of the theory of Relativity is another one in the world of Physics.

    The Law of the Magnets is an observation of what happens to people in connection. When people embrace the "three invisible connectors", they seem to be attracted to each other as if through magnetism. It is as if each one of them is a magnet pulling towards each other. When people are unaware of the "three invisible connectors", and they automatically pollute the relational space, they seem to be repelled from each other, as if the magnets are turned away from each other. This observation was coined "The Law of the Magnets" by Hedy Schleifer in Session 2 of an International Master Class. The Master Class is a “community of practice” dedicated to the exploration of the principles at the base of the relational paradigm.
