WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Linda Epstein, Energy Healing Practitioner  


Anyone who would like to learn a highly effective, easy to use, quick and self administered healing tool:

• To cope with and heal the challenging and sometimes overwhelming emotions of grief and loss, including anticipatory grief

• To feel relief from the physical and emotional stress that may be part of intense caregiving for a loved one who is very ill or dying

The class is also appropriate for practitioners: grief & pet loss counselors, pet loss support group facilitators, animal communicators, flower essence practitioners, veterinary professionals, animal shelter and rescue group staff, trainers and behaviorists, energy healers, therapists, as well as friends and family members who want to fully support their loved ones who are grieving or caregiving.

This class provides practical information you can use the rest of your life as you experience
 loss (of animals and humans) and grief, to support the animals you love and care for during the sacred and often stressful times of illness and transition, as well as for any emotional issues and challenges in life beyond loss and grief. 

CONTENT AND PURPOSE:

Grief from the loss of a loved one, whether human or animal, is an issue for which our hearts need tender compassion and  healing. The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an extremely powerful, easy to learn and easy to use tool that helps decrease and release emotional pain and overwhelm to help us both cope and heal. 

EFT is a meridian-based energy therapy which was developed by Gary Craig. It is often referred to as the emotional version of acupuncture except without the use of needles. Tapping on certain meridian points on the body with our fingers while saying specific statements helps us release emotions or beliefs that may be overwhelming, challenging, difficult or negative in any way.

EFT is very gentle, very healing and very easy to learn. With practice, one can apply this technique within an hour. EFT does not make us forget what happened, it does not make grief magically disappear, but it most definitely can lessen the intensity and discomfort of the pain of grief. It also helps us find relief from grief related emotions such as guilt, sorrow, anguish, anger, or depression--feelings that may be hard to cope with and at times may feel as if they are preventing us from moving forward in life.

This 6 hour teleclass teaches the basics of The Emotional Freedom Technique and how to apply this technique to our personal situations.  At the end of the three week teleclass, participants will be equipped with the knowledge on how to use EFT not only for grief, but for any challenging experiences--from minor irritations to traumatic crisis--that are part of normal life.

TESTIMONIALS

I would most definitely recommend this class to anyone working on grief or wanting more knowledge about EFT.  I was able to tap into and release very deep trauma. It was some very heavy duty stuff that was deeply suppressed. The EFT led me down the road to get there and I am feeling much lighter and more me as a result. Linda is a phenomenal teacher and healer. I am infinitely grateful to her and for her.  I love it that she and Teresa are working together. It is great to see such beautiful, big hearted, and powerful women teaming up. Particularly in the healing arena. Healing is so powerful for all involved. It is what brings us back to our core and our connection to Source/God/Creator and all that is.

~ Lori K, Baltimore, Maryland

The teacher was so supportive and questions were well explained. Even past the tapping exercise, it helped to learn the ways we block the energy and what can cause energy reversal. It also helped to learn the experience of others and how they dealt with and overcame issues. I feel like I've been given an extremely valuable tool chest. I feel it has opened doors for me. It's a tool that I can use and develop the rest of my life. Like flower essences, it's very effective.   
~ Linda K, Willits, California

Linda has a very soothing voice that draws you in. And she answered everyone's questions beautifully. Plus it wasn't high pressure...we laughed and had fun moments too.  I feel I will be using EFT for the rest of my life! It is simple and can be done quite quickly during a moment of panic!   ~ Rayanne S, Morriston, Florida

It was extremely well organized. Loved the exercises and handouts.  ~ Dolly R, Sunnyvale, California

The handouts and exercises were extremely detailed and very helpful. Applying EFT to other issues in my life. What a valuable tool and resource this is.
  ~ Debbie O, Lake Forrest, California

Extremely valuable. The explanations are very clear and Linda explains very well. The class gave me answers I was uncertain of from reading about EFT. Knowing how easy it is to access at anytime, anywhere!  
~ Rachel R, Carmel, California

EFT is easy to learn and is a valuable tool for releasing emotions like sorrow, grief, anger, etc. Handouts were clear and informative.  Linda's soothing voice, clear instructions and patient guidance, made EFT easy to learn and practice.
