The dialogue in the first half of this episode is taken from one of my weekly Open Sessions. You can be a participant in Open Sessions each week to do The Work with me or ask your questions.

Listen as this participant does The Work on the thought, “My body is not recovering fast enough.” Can you find a similar experience in your own life? This is an unedited recording so you can experience how I do The Work in real life with any stressful thought that comes up.
