Emotional Freedom Techniques™

Emotional Freedom Techniques ™ (EFT), commonly called “tapping,” is based upon the 5,000 year old Eastern medicine energy meridian system. Like acupuncture, EFT stimulates the body’s acupressure points but with fingertip tapping, not needles. EFT has been shown to provide relief from chronic pain and other physical symptoms, negative emotions, addictions, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, stress and anxiety, limiting beliefs, and more.


Using EFT for Stress Release

Some stress is necessary but too much stress produces fatigue, irritability, sleep problems, addictions, and many more symptoms. In this highly experiential workshop, you will learn to address your symptoms of stress and the issues that cause it with the amazing and simple tool of EFT. You will not only feel better physically but also emotionally. Relaxation is immediate. And since EFT is a self-help tool, you will be able to use EFT in your daily life as stressful situations arise thereby keeping too much stress at bay and your life in balance.

Attracting the Life You Want with EFT

We are attracting things to ourselves unconsciously all the time, both positive and negative. This is an ancient belief and is currently called the Law of Attraction. In this class, we will learn the basics tenets of the Law of Attraction. Then we will identify our inner blocks that keep us from attracting that which we say we want in our lives. Finally, using EFT, we will learn to eliminate any limiting beliefs and negative feelings in our way. With the blocks removed, we are able to attract to us the lives we truly want.

Classes will cover the following; site and animal selection, land / water management, and gardening. Bill pulls the class together by also examining the business of urban farming, including budget and tax considerations, trading, marketing, and auctioning, as well as other topics of that will be of particular interest to future farmers.
