07 Practice: Emotional Freedom Technique with Geleni Fontaine of Third Root Community Health Center
< 1 day ago
Join us for a simple tapping practice called Emotional Freedom Technique with Geleni Fontaine of Third Root Community Health Center. This utilizes the knowledge of acupressure points and is something you can truly do anywhere - alone, in a group, or on the go.
Check out the practice diagram and instructions for a more visual reminder and explanation: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LqN9hSw2JhcbX5jFeK8JbC4Oh6geY1Q292fytzDnA14/edit?usp=sharing
The phrase you’ll use is: “Even though _____, I love and accept myself completely.”
Check out episode 7 for the corresponding conversation with Geleni and Emily Kramer titled "De-spa-ifying Healing & Accessibility” to listen to our conversation about somatic symptoms of oppression and the increased pressures since the 2016 election, in what ways Trump and our current political environment is making us sick, what it would look like to de-spa-ify healing and make it part of our everyday lives instead of a luxury commodity, and how organizers and leaders can make our movement spaces more accessible to the widest range of folks with varying capacities. (Bonus: they also sing a song!)
