The EFT Café open to anyone who knows how to tap. We aim to practice together developing our skills for the common good. Just in case you were wondering, EFT Café is not a coffee shop, but we do aim to be an informal environment where people can meet and enjoy themselves whilst improving their tapping skills.
You do need some experience of EFT to attend these workshops and if you are an AAMET EFT Practitioner each EFT Café counts as 2 hours CPD credits to help you maintain your accreditation.
The EFT Café is usually on the second Wednesday of the month at St Oswald’s Hospice Teaching Centre, Regent Ave, Gosforth, Newcastle, NE3 1EE. From 7pm to 9pm. The cost is just £10 for two hours supervised practice and training
EFT Cafe – 10th October 2018 – How We Exist In The Minds Of Others
Humans are social animals that thrive best in supportive groups and families.
The threat of being excluded from our social group can provoke a lot of fear and distress.
In order to understand how to fit in and get along with our caregivers and companions we soon learn how to imagine how other people think of us, and feel about us, so we can predict what others will do next and how best to respond to stay safe in our ‘tribe’.
As very young children we develop a ‘theory of mind’: the ability to attribute mental states—beliefs, intents, desires, emotions, knowledge, etc.—to oneself, and to others, and to understand that others have beliefs, desires, intentions, and perspectives that are different from one’s own.
With a good theory of mind we can empathise, choose appropriate gifts, ‘read’ body language and non-verbal cues, predict how someone will respond to a situation and many manage other facets of social life.
Our theory of ‘how we exist in the minds of others’ radically shape our experience.
If we think others think well of us then we will be comfortable and resourceful in our social world.
If we think others think badly of us we may feel (and fear being) unattractive, rejectable or vulnerable to attack.
In this week’s EFT Cafe on Wednesday, 10th October, Andy Hunt will explore using EFT to change the way we think other people think of us so we can be more resourceful, congruent and confident with others.
The EFT Cafe is held at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne and costs just £10.
