February 2017 Newsletter

Hi,

Welcome to the February 2017 edition of the Practical Wellbeing newsletter.

I realise its been a while since my last newsletter, I hope you find this one useful.

In this edition you will find:

Two articles on very different topics.

One about how to access some of the positive qualities you may have had to suppress in your childhood, the other about why it takes more than a weekend training to be a competent EFT Practitioner.

There are three videos:

  • A short animation about Jung's concept of the Shadow which ties into to the article
  • A short film from Denmark suggesting that we have a lot more in common with each other than we think
  • A beer commercial as an eloquent demonstration of the power of diversity.

Finally a round up training opportunities I'm participating in, including the 'EFT Gathering 4x4' taking place in Ilkely, Yorkshire at the end of April.

Please remember, many of my trainings and workshops are available to newsletter readers (that's you) at substantial discounts. Use the discount code pw-newsletter when you sign up to access these savings

STOP PRESS: There is just ONE place remaining on AAMET EFT Level 1 Training scheduled for 23rd & 24th February (see below for details).

I hope you find the newsletter helpful. If you have any comments or questions please get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.

All the best,

Andy

P.S. Remember, if this newsletter or any of the emails I send no longer serve or delight you, you can use the "unsubscribe" button down at the bottom of this email to stop receiving these or any emails from me.

Article: How To Tap Into The Gifts Of The Shadow

In this new article I explore ways of using tapping to access the positive parts of our Shadow.

When people talk about our psychological Shadow they often focus on it as the repository of everything that is bad or rejected in ourselves.

It's a bit more complicated than that.

Our shadows are the repositories for everything that was unacceptable in us as we grew up, what was unacceptable to our caregivers may be very valuable to us now.

In How To Tap Into The Gifts Of The Shadow I describe a simple process for accessing some of the hidden wealth of our Shadow.

Article: Your Life In Their Hands

This article addresses a question that is often asked about the AAMET EFT Level 2 certification requirements.

Many people think the amount of work necessary to achieve certification is too much and just a simple Level 2 training should be enough to prepare you for working with client's emotional difficulties.

With the help of an incompetent paramedic I make the argument that the certification requirements are there for a good reason and will help any EFT Practitioner be skilled at what they do. That's good for them and it's good for you if you go to an EFT Practitioner for help.

You can read all about it in Your Life In Their Hands?

Videos

  • The Shadow - Short animation about Jung's concept of the Shadow from John Spooner.
  • Three Beautiful Human Minutes by Asger Leth, TV2 Denmark. In a world that seems determined to separate us and and pit one group against another, this video from Denmark demonstrates that we have far more in common with each other than we might imagine.
  • Who's a Canadian? - From a slightly different perspective, this is a demonstration of unity in diversity from, of all things, a beer commercial!

EFT Gathering 4x4 - Ilkely - 29th & 30th April, 2017

Gwyneth Moss, EFT Master and organiser of the annual EFT Gathering is organising a new form of workshop for anyone who wants to develop their tapping skills.

The 4x4 event is a two day set of four workshops (followed by an optional day long workshop by Gwyneth). There are four presenters, one of whom just happens to be me!

It promises to be a rich weekend of tapping and exploration with four very different presenters. I'm presenting an introduction to the Identity Healing process on Sunday afternoon.

You can find out more about the event here or at the EFT Gathering website

Because I'm one of the presenters I am able to offer you a discount of £20 for the weekend if you use the code 'fourbyfour' and a £10 discount for Gwyneth's EFT Constellations workshop if you use the discount code 'cowandcalf'

I'm looking forward to the event, I think it's going to be fascinating.

Books

Getting Out Of Your Own Way, is a straightforward and thorough guide to uncovering and dissolving many of your hidden limiting beliefs and blocks – the ‘Resistance’ – the unconscious saboteurs that stand in the way of your progress.

The EFT Collection is a compilation of some of the Tapping techniques that I have developed over the years as an EFT Practitioner and Trainer. There are 12 techniques presented in this book. They range from very simple tactics to quite broad strategies for dealing with difficult situations.
