Tapping into Freedom: Meditation and Energy Psychology
February 22, 2020 - February 23, 2020£65 – £110
An introduction to Meditation and Energy Psychology
Energy psychology is the name given to therapeutic tapping techniques like EFT, AIT and EMDR. For example, EMDR is a NICE approved treatment for trauma.
This Winter, Alistair Appleton is giving a weekend introduction to how these techniques work together with somatic meditation. For more than 10 years, Alistair has used tapping with his therapy clients to untie the knots of their bodily trauma. On a personal level, he also consistently used tapping alongside his somatic meditation practice to unblock the path of meditative peace and open-heartedness This February he is sharing these insights.
Alistair’s teacher Reggie Ray has said that some therapy may be necessary to clear the traumatic knots that stop us resting in the awakened state. Tibetan Buddhist practice prescribes several energetic practices to do this, but energy psychology offers a contemporary way of clearing the Path.
What this workshop on Meditation and Energy Psychology will cover:
- the background and history of energy psychology
- understanding practice in a right-brain experience of the body
- the somatic foundation of tapping work
- the basic sequence of the tapping protocol
- opportunities and examples of use
- further practice and use

How to book and financial support
Mindsprings tries to offer good quality instruction at a reasonable cost. We offer a concessionary rate to anyone who is struggling financially, to students and to the unemployed. We never want to turn someone away because they can’t pay. However, the full-price tickets help subsidise these cheaper places, so we ask people to use their discernment when buying a concession.
