"Finding Your Voice: Personal Empowerment and Self Acceptance Thru EFT"

Many years ago I was traveling from my home town in SW Kansas up to Denver Colorado with a one of my best friends from college. He struggled with singing, so we spent the several hours of the eight hour trip trying to teach him how to hear a note and and then match the frequency. I tried all sorts of techniques. He wasn't monotone, he just couldn't hear the right pitch. He wasn't tone deaf, but clearly tone challenged. Maybe if I had known how to use meridian tapping technqiues back then, we could have released his inner "James Taylor."
Even though he couldn't sing on key, he sang "Sweet Baby James" with all the gusto, enthusiasm and vitality that springs forth when you Find Your Voice! So for the last several hours of our ride to Denver, we sang up a storm of James Taylor tunes and created memories that are vivid even to this day.
I always liked the phrase "finding your voice." In many ways, it is the foundation of my work as a counselor. Some call it your solid self, divine image self, speaking your truth or being your authentic. In the end, it is a state of being that just feels resonant and congruent. It is a place of feeling centered, confident and connected, an open hearted way of being in the world. When we are not any of those things we feel disconnected, angry, depressed, anxious or defensive. Sometimes we don't feel anything that intense, we just feel stuck and out of tune.
I have put together a workshop to explore "Finding Your Voice: Personal Empowerment & Self Acceptance Through EFT." You will have a chance to learn how to idenfity obstacles and how to use tapping on acupoints to create personal empowerment and self acceptance.
If you looking for a teacher who has tapped away all his issues, look elsewhere, but if you are looking for someone who is also on the journey, then you might find my model of "Finding Your Voice" useful. It has helped me to make quantum leaps in finding my "pitch" over the last ten years.
If you feel out of sorts, disconnected or don't possess the level of empowement and centeredness that you desire, I believe this event will be helpful and equip you with easy to use tools that you can take along for the ride.
It will be held on Thursday April 14th at 6:30 - 8:30 pm at The Soul Purpose at 1225 GAR Highway, Swansea Ma. 
  • Learn the Basic EFT Recipe and applications for reaching personal empowerment
  • Chart your vibrational ladder and energy blocks
  • Identify and eliminate obstacles
  • Resolve limiting beliefs and release motivation
  • Identify core fears and blocks that obstruct self acceptance
Cost is $35  To register call 774-264-1329 or email Jessica Kozac at the Soul Purpose
For those who can't attend the workshop, I conduct focused coaching sessions by Skype or phone to teach how to use EFT on empowerment issues.

"What a teacher! (OR WHAT A SKILLED INSTRUCTOR!) Greg's concise and humorous style made EFT instantly accessible and immediately useful. The experience we shared during the workshop was profound. We witnessed the healing powers of EFT and Greg made it a pleasure to learn. Highly recommended. I'd do it again.

Instructor's Comments

With 25 years of experience as a therapist, nothing has energized my practice like EFT over the past ten years. I have been working with groups and leading workshops for over thirty years. You will receive valued content, experiential learning and energy from our time together! My goal is for you to experience that "aha!" moment when EFT works in a very deep way. This class will be fun, profound and an opportunity to master personal use and to begin to learn how to use EFT with others. Feel free to contact me for more information.

StressBuster Workshop at Seven Arrows Farm in Seekonk, Ma.

On Sunday 2 -4 pm June 8th, 2014 I will be leading a StressBuster Workshop. 

My beef with most stress management workshops is that they require you to reinvent your lifestyle or grab 30 minutes that you don't have to give. 

In this event folk will learn easy to use - "while on the go" techniques that provide amazing results.

The more I learned about the mind and body's reaction to stress, the easier it became to find ways to calm it down when it over reacts or is to "jacked up" on adrenalin.

This will be a hands on "go home with" several techniques workshop.

Folk will leave knowing how to use Emotional Freedom Technique (Meridian Tapping Therapy) for daily stress and many other issues.

Contact Seven Arrows Farm at Ph. 508.399.7860 or by email at

If you want more information or have any questions, call me at Ph. 401.265.2951 or by email at

Reading an interesting book by Ann Weiser Cornell, Ph.D, titled "The Power of Focusing:  A Practical Guide to Emotional Self Healing."  Dr. Cornell describes "Focusing" as a body-oriented process of self awareness and emotional healing.  I often use the term "noticing" with my clients to describe a similar process of noticing how you feel and where the sensation is located within the body.

Often by noticing and having a conversation with our feelings that which is causing discomfort relaxes.

There is wisdom that comes from the body that is often inaccessible to the logical mind.

Some body awareness techniques and trauma treatments start with the worst pain or what can be called the "Oh My God!" moment.   

Dr. Cornell correctly states,  "Think of your emotions as a big lake.  You have a choice: you can plunge into the lake, or you can sit next to it.  Focusing works best when you "sit next to" what you feel instead of plunging into it."

So far her ideas seem spot on easy to understand.  I will check back with you as I move through her book.
