Have you ever felt uncertain or overwhelmed when implementing the EFT model? If so, you are in good company. This training will help you to experience EFT concepts from within, using mindfulness and yoga techniques. EFT is a model that is most effective when the therapist can experience the EFT concepts within themselves first. You will cultivate the ability to be more grounded, present and compassionate. Through the practice of mindfulness yoga, you will grow your mental and emotional stamina, learn to truly slow down, be attuned, demonstrate emotional flexibility, co-regulate, listen generously, connect with and fully embrace your own voice. It will help you to embrace whatever arises within your own mind, body and soul, in such a way that you can be skillfully at ease with your client. We will discuss some of the unconscious systemic racism which has resulted in the lack of diversity in mindfulness, yoga and EFT communities. We offer embodied practices which will expand our capacity to welcome conversations about race in the therapeutic space. A resource list will be provided for participants.
