Why Forgiveness Doesn't Work 
Making Room For Our Feelings

Most of us have been challenged by mild to horrific events in our lives that have left us feeling some degree of anger, resentment, betrayal and even a clear intention of deciding to never forgive.The residue of these experiences can leave us with a range of legitimate albeit distressing feelings. Sometimes the distress caused by others runs so deep that we could never consider forgiveness nor should we.

Rarely are we given permission to allow space for our resentment, our rage and inability or refusal to forgive without having to cope with the judgement or well-intended advice of others to forgive and forget. We are sometimes told we need to forgive to heal. Really?

Perhaps forgiveness is not the answer.  Perhaps allowing room for our resentments, or hurt feelings, our sense of betrayal and rage is the way to go. What if there was a safe place within a workshop setting using Energy Psychology methodology to move the energy in your body to release these feelings instead?

There is such a place!

 This workshop is for you if:

  1. You continue to experience distressing feelings around an event that hurt you.
  2. There is a part of you that adamantly refuses to “forget and forgive”.
  3. You notice a lot of your energy goes into coping with a distressing memory.
  4. You just want the emotional pain to go away.
  5. You feel stuck in the past.

All levels of tappers are welcome, whether you have never tried tapping or you are an experienced tapper, there is a space for you.

                      What is EFT/Tapping and how does it work?

Susan defines EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) as a "Mindfulness-based, Somatic  Energy Meridian Tapping Technique" It that allows uncomfortable emotions, memories and beliefs to be released from the Human Energy Field and subsequently from the body. It is based on the discovery that when focused on a feeling or event while tapping specific acupressure points the “emotional charge” is downregulated, the neural network calms via an electro-mechanical connection with the collagen in the fascia of the body". Once the negative emotion is no longer front of mind, executive functioning skills come back on line and more positive perspectives engage. Choices seem possible which would have otherwise been challenging. Simply put, EFT is "acupressure for your emotions and limiting beliefs.”

Tapping is a powerful pathway to self-discovery and emotional freedom

  • Tapping is a well-known and scientifically-based Energy Psychology modality that combines the wisdom of Chinese acupressure with modern therapeutic techniques to downregulate emotional distress. Those who use it regularly release, and move stuck energy patterns via the meridian system and the fascial system within the body. This is done by using fingers to tap on specific meridian points while bringing the distress to mind, thus the name Tapping
  • Tapping is not new. It's been around since the early 1990s but it's based on ancient wisdom about the body
  • Tapping is also called EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques
  • Tapping/EFT is a mindfulness-based and self-healing, somatic technique that can be used by anyone of any age for many situations and has no reported side effects and is not know to interfere with any medications
  • Tapping is proven effective, safe and supportive in discovering and treating deeper hidden issues
  • Tapping connects us with our unique Self in a way that supports Spiritual expansion and self-love
  • Tapping helps us to deal with our past so we can live in the present
  • Tapping is the "medicine of the future" for emotional distress
