The Lefkoe Institute is committed to helping individuals dramatically improve their effectiveness and sense of well-being in all areas of their lives—whether in their business lives, sports, parenting or general self-improvement.

We have helped over 13,000 individuals make significant changes in their lives. Using the telephone and Skype, these people live in over 60 different countries, including Nigeria, India, The United Kingdom, France, The Netherlands, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, New Guinea, Korea, China and Japan.

An additional 90,000 people have eliminated at least one limiting belief using an online or DVD program.

He has written a book about the Lefkoe Belief Process (LBP), Re-create Your Life: Transforming Yourself and Your World (Andrews McMeel, 1997; trade paper version, DMI Publishing, 2003).

It also includes several case histories involving clients who have successfully dealt with dysfunctional patterns. Morty has also written an essay that details research on the mind-body connection in sports and his work with athletes. You can get a pdf of it by clicking here.

Shelly Lefkoe

shelly-lefkoeShelly Lefkoe is a co-founder and Vice President of Lefkoe Institute, a San Francisco Bay Area firm whose mission is “To significantly improve the quality of life on the planet by having people recreate their lives and live as the unlimited possibilities they are.”

Her personal vision is to transform the way people parent. She believes that if we raise a conscious generation of children, violence will end, people will treat each other with respect and dignity, and life on this planet will be better for everyone. Shelly is the author of “Parenting the Lefkoe Way,” a seven-CD guide to effective parenting, and coauthor of The Chicken Soup for the Soul Guide to Effective Parenting. This book empowers parents—through their interactions with their children—to help those children form positive, rather than negative, beliefs about themselves, people and life.

Shelly has had the privilege of helping thousands of clients worldwide rid themselves of a wide variety of problems including phobias, relationships that never seem to work, violence, procrastination, unwillingness to confront people, eating disorders, drug and alcohol addiction, and sexual dysfunction. Her clients have been able to eliminate emotional patterns such as fear, hostility, shyness, anxiety, depression, worry about what people think of them, and a negative sense of themselves. This work has made her an expert on how to raise healthy, successful children who are free of limiting beliefs.

Shelly is a frequent keynote speaker and leads workshops for parents and teachers, as well as workshops that train participants to use the Lefkoe Method. She also addresses corporate audiences on “How Our Beliefs Limit Our Lives.”
