Those suffering with chronic pain are facing even more challenges during this world-wide health pandemic.  Isolation, limited pharmacy and medical services and supplies, and constant fear and anxiety are leading to increased suffering.

“To see exactly how the pandemic is impacting pain care, the U.S. Pain Foundation went right to the source, surveying 664 individuals across the country living with chronic pain. Their findings, based on early April 2020 data, show that:

  • 77.4% are facing barriers to treatment
  • 63.8% are experiencing increased pain
  • 69.7% consider themselves to be at high risk for serious COVID-19.

“Because of their risk factors, this population of patients must limit contact,” said CEO Nicole Hemmenway, in a press release. “But they also live with painful conditions that require consistent medical care in order for them to function. It’s a terrible catch-22.” PPM  Practical Pain Management. Read more

Last Saturday I led my monthly interactive webinar.  Our topic was Releasing Stress and Anxiety in Today’s World.  Prior to the class I received so many requests on how to tap for the fear of the Coronavirus, and how to boost our immune systems, that I devoted the entire hour on tapping sequences specific to this very timely topic.

I also realized the importance of sharing these tools with the millions of people around the world struggling to maintain balance within this unbalanced environment.

So, yesterday, I did a YouTube video teaching the tapping sequences to remove fear and maintain peace and calm within ourselves.

Please share it with all you know and love.  And, for those wanting additional tapping tools for supporting their immune system and well-being, we have made last Saturday’s class as an instant download for others, not regular class participants.

Last week I posted an article on our blog site that had appeared in Lynn McTaggart’s What Doctors Don’t Tell You (WDDTY). It quoted a recent study showing that just two hours per week in nature, the forest or beach, provided increased health and well-being. The alpha waves in nature lead to a more balanced brain wave pattern, facilitating whole brain synchrony and a more meditative state of being.

Meditation is known to reduce stress and increase mental and physical states of well-being. The vibrational frequency of our surroundings has a profound effect on our emotional state and our ability to facilitate healing. Read more

Our upcoming Personal Healing Retreat in Costa Rica will be launching one of the first programs teaching Energy Medicine Yoga (EMYoga).

Caroline Avant, who taught and shared yoga with us at our past Synchronicity and Wintergreen Resort Well-Being Retreats, has completed her education/certification in the new Energy Medicine Yoga and will be joining us in Costa Rica.

Meet Caroline and discover how EMYoga can help us heal.

Energy Medicine Yoga with Caroline Avant

Trained in Hatha Yoga, Caroline’s influences are shaped by her thirty-year personal Yoga practice and her deep dive into the exploration of consciousness including living as a Monk at the Synchronicity Sanctuary USA for eleven years. Caroline is now teaching Energy Medicine Yoga which is an integrative yoga practice accessible to students of all levels.

The practice includes asana poses, breath-work, meditation and Energy Medicine techniques such as acupressure holds, Neurolymphatic Reflex self-massage (a unique and powerful way of working with and clearing your lymphatic system), and energy channel clearings.

EMYoga will help unlock the language of your body to amplify your healing power – mind, body, and spirit. The result is a deep love, appreciation and acceptance of yourself just as you are now, as you continue on a path toward your best self.

It is yoga . . . electrified!

We are often asked, Where should I start with TFT? Or, Which training should I take?

Because TFT has so many options for training, whether professional or for personal use, it can sometimes be confusing to the person new to TFT. Additionally, we are creating new trainings for both online and live delivery and it is not easy for our long-time practitioners to keep up with our constantly evolving and growing materials.

I have just done a brief, six-minute, video with powerpoint highlighting our trainings available both online and in-person and introducing our new training programs.

We have just had the following message from the IZERE Center in Rwanda.  It is wonderful to have TFT’s role in their healing process be acknowledged and recognized in this way.  This is an urgent request to help us support this Unity and Reconciliation Week program.  As it is not in our planned budget, we need your support to help them provide this program and the recognition of TFT and their model of trauma relief.  They are requesting $5500. 

 “It is my pleasure to let you know that TFT and Psychosocial Diocesan Service is considered as the model service in trauma healing, Unity and Reconciliation of Rwandan people in the Northern province. Our work at Izere Center and Mutete sector is making the change in the society.  Yesterday we attended the provincial meeting and we have been requested to organize the Unity and reconciliation week which will begin at TFT Site of Mutete Sector and end at Izere Center. Many people will be invited such as: Minister of Justice, Minister of Local governance, Governor of Northern Province, the Chairperson of The National  Unity and reconciliation Commission  Mayors, Bishops, Mayors,…  Tomorrow, we have the management meeting and we will establish the important activities which will characterize that week. So, we are asking you if you should get any sponsorship or support for the success of that week.”

Tomorrow I give you all the details after the technical meeting! It is hard for us because it is the first time for our service to be chosen for the organization and heading the activities of the Unity and Reconciliation week!

41JQgUW1uYL._SX313_BO1,204,203,200_Dr Colin M. Barron’s new book is now available on Amazon.

I am very pleased to announce Dr. Colin Barron’s new book. Dr. Barron has been a long time TFT VT practitioner and an active participant on our community. He has graciously share much knowledge over the years. And as he is, himself, an excellent and very witty speaker, he is certainly qualified to write this book. You can get your copy here.

Colin has been using TFT since early in 2000, and in November 2001 he became the first British person to qualify as a Voice Technology TFT practitioner. Colin has also gained 40 years of experience in public speaking, and did some training with the John May School of Public Speaking in London in January 1990.

Public speaking is one of the most important skills in personal and professional life. Yet too often this key ability is neglected, leading to presentations which are dull, uninspired and poorly delivered.

The Craft of Public Speaking examines some of the crucial aptitudes which are fundamental to delivering an effective presentation for listeners. These include preparation, structure and rehearsal, in addition to some of the more overlooked aspects of oration such as the use of visual aids, adding humour, and dressing for success. As well as discussing how to deliver effective live addresses in public settings, the book also covers interview techniques for TV and radio along with how to organise seminars and conferences.

Dr Colin M. Barron has delivered hundreds of lectures and presentations to audiences during a long career, giving speeches on a wide variety of different subjects over many years. In The Craft of Public Speaking, he shares the essential knowledge that you will need to become a truly successful public speaker.

There is no doubt that how we experience ourselves in relationships is of great importance to us. Be it within the family, with friends or coworkers we are interacting and relating to many people throughout our lives. The scenarios are many, and the situations differ but underlying all is the hope that we create something harmonious and enjoyable that enriches our lives. Read more
