Program Description

Imagine if your struggles, negative emotions, and physical pain simply dissolved. Imagine starting each day with optimism, hope, and joy. What would your life look like?

Explore the healing power of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) tapping in this weekend workshop with Dawson Church, PhD, creator of EFT Universe, and watch your troubles dissolve. This evidence-based method uses the science of acupressure in the form of fingertip tapping on acupuncture points to restore energy flow to restricted parts of the body—resulting in incredible relief of both physical and psychological ailments.

At this workshop you’ll learn:

  • Basic acupressure points and the essential ingredients of EFT
  • How to test the results on your emotions and body
  • What research tells us about the “why” behind EFT’s formula
  • How psychological and physical problems relate, and how EFT can improve both
  • How the brain’s “mirror neurons” help you “borrow benefits” while watching another person’s tapping session.

The experience of millions of people and over 100 peer-reviewed studies validate clinical EFT, showing it to dramatically reduce symptoms of physical and mental distress, including pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and phobias. You’ll study the fascinating scientific research and firsthand accounts that show how EFT works deep in the body, reducing cortisol, boosting immunity, and even regulating genes.

  • Faculty Bio
    Dawson Church, PhD

    Founder of National Institute for Integrative Healthcare

    Dawson Church has authored or edited over 200 books in the fields of health, psychology, and spirituality. First editor then president of Aslan Publishing (known for their inspirational self-help books and modern-day parables), Church went on to earn two doctoral degrees in natural medicine and integrative health. His principal work, The Genie in Your Genes, explores the link between consciousness, emotion, and gene expression.

    During his doctoral work, Church was mentored by Norman Shealy, MD, PhD, (neurosurgeon, pain medicine pioneer, and founder of the American Holistic Medical Association). Together, they authored Soul Medicine, surveying the role of consciousness in medicine from the earliest times to the modern day.

    A year after publishing this work, Church founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare (NIIH), a nonprofit dedicated to study and education in evidence-based healing modalities. In 2008, NIIH initiated the Veterans Stress Project, a platform to connect veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with energy therapists. More than 10,000 veterans and family members have received counseling through the project, and Church has twice been invited to testify before US congressional committees on his work.

    Church is also a member of the Transformational Leadership Council and the former president of The Family Connection, one of 53 nonprofits named as Points of Light by President Bill Clinton. He has worked with more than a thousand people in pain and published numerous scientific papers in collaboration with various scholars studying PTSD, depression, and anxiety.

    The editor of the journal Energy Psychology, Church manages Energy Psychology Press, which maintains a research bibliography and case histories at EFT Universe, one of the most-visited alternative medicine sites on the web. He blogs regularly for the Huffington Post, is an app reviewer for the American Psychiatric Association’s mental health mobile app, and his books have won over two dozen awards, including Best Health Book (Independent Press Awards) and Best Science Book (USA Book News Awards). His work has been featured by USA Today, CNN, BBC, the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and Parenting.
