Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been effected by the Aurora, CO shooting this last weekend.

TFT (Thought Field Therapy) Foundation is offering, much-needed trauma and stress relief for those suffering from the recent Aurora, CO shooting. These easily learned, self-applied techniques, Thought Field Therapy (TFT) are based on time-honored principles of both contemporary clinical psychology and Chinese medicine to conquer trauma, anxiety, stress, fears and addictions.

These procedures, the original form of Energy Psychology, are safe, non-invasive and simple to apply.

TFT has been used world-wide in trauma relief and humanitarian projects. Joanne Callahan, President of the TFT Foundation is sympathetic to the needs of those suffering from such traumatic events.  The TFT Foundation’s past humanitarian and trauma relief in Rwanda, New Orleans, Uganda, Haiti and Kosovo have demonstrated that TFT is a powerful and effective treatment for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.) These procedures are now offered free on the foundation’s trauma relief web site.  The procedures used for trauma and stress relief world-wide, are available in video and print in 11 languages.

Recent studies in Rwanda and Uganda demonstrate the effectiveness of these procedures for large scale trauma relief.  Trauma relief procedures are simple and easy to use and are available by visiting http://www.TFTTraumaRelief.wordpress.com

ATFT Foundation Board Member Meeting

All but one of the foundation’s dedicated board members came together for this meeting. They paid their own expenses to travel to Sedona for a weekend of brainstorming and planning, led by board member Bruce Paton, a retired PepsiCo executive, who has led many similar strategic planning sessions in the past.

Mary Cowley, Suzanne Connolly, Jenny Edwards, Joanne Callahan and Darla Terry-Ausmann were all present as Bruce led us thru our planning sessions. Sunday morning we had the pleasure of Roger Callahan, Jim Cowley and Dariah Morgan joining us as we shared our goals and plans for the future. We appreciated their various perspectives as we fine tuned our vision for ATFT Foundation’s future.

It was an exciting experience, sharing ideas, energy and a common goal of spreading TFT throughout the world with research, education and humanitarian work. I was amazed at the synergistic effect of all of us getting together in the same place.

Suzanne and Bruce Connolly graciously hosted the event in Suzanne’s office – and just two days after arriving home from a month in Rwanda. That, in itself was unbelievable. It was a delight to hear the stories from Suzanne’s trip

Bruce Paton was a skilled facilitator and leader throughout the entire weekend. He even provided all of us with a summary by Sunday evening, while still traveling, from a restaurant in Flagstaff. I will share some of his notes and summary.

“Our objectives were twofold…get to know one another better (teambuilding) and to create a strategic plan (increase foundation effectiveness).”

We defined strategy as “a series of integrated initiatives designed to produce desired results“. We defined plan as “a predetermined path from which to knowingly deviate“. Read more

Dr. Jeanette Magdalene tells her story:

I have been working with what is known as Awareness During Anesthesia for 18 years. 

Many people don’t know that more then 100 people per day will wake up during their surgery and not be able to speak, move, open their eyes, anything to let the doctors know they are awake!

This happened to me in 1990 during my own surgery.

I  woke up before the surgery even began only to find myself buried within my body that no longer worked as I knew it. The surgery began, I felt every cut of the knife , smelled and felt my flesh burning , everything everyone was saying and even stepped outside of my body as my heart started to go into arrest and viewed everything the doctor was doing to get my heart under control.

I even heard the doctor say there was nothing wrong with me! Misdiagnosis so never needed the surgery to begin with!

I was offered a large settlement but turned it down so I could speak about this and help others like yourself never to know what I went through. I threw myself into my own research and blew one of the most well kept secrets in medicine wide open. To date I have changed every hospital in America, I teach at every medical school the U.S.A, written a book on Anesthesia Awareness,  have been interviewed in T.V and print throughout the world, and tons more that can be viewed on my website: www.aware4life.com .

I also have worked with Military and Law Enforcement for many years and always felt these type of people needed more for themselves due to the high level of stress and traumas they experience. I’ve put different programs together for them – Anesthesia Awareness – and it took on a life of its own.

Then one day a friend told me about something she heard of called Thought Field Therapy and wanted to know if I would want to go?

I jumped up and said yes lets go! She said “why would I go? That’s your type of work“. I looked at here and said “do you know how I stayed alive on the operating table? By learning. You never know when something like this will help you somehow in your life so your going with me“. Read more
