Energy Techniques and the Lived Experience of Trauma

A Master Class for EFT Practitioners 

Because safety is necessary for trauma healing, this workshop offers a safe space for experienced EFT practitioners to explore trauma’s ability to precipitate an evolving awareness of wholeness. In our time together, we will explore what Stephen Porges calls neuroception, somatic awareness designed to protect us from trauma even before the wound is named and the remedies suggested by science.  For this reason, I think of the science of trauma as prose and the trauma itself as poetry. During these classes, we will be reviewing the prose – the scientific explanations for trauma – and discovering the poetry – the distilled, in-the-moment gifts of trauma – and how these lead to greater and greater healing when supported by the creative use of EFT.
