In Picture Tapping you draw a picture of the issue you want to work on. This will be a metaphorical representation of the problem or situation that you want to work on.
(Don't worry artistic skill is not required, stick figures and scribbles work really well in this process).
By tapping on what is shown in the image the experience of the issue can be dramatically changed in a short space of time with little or no discomfort
This process is:
- a simple way to express and work with complex situations.
- a relatively painless way of working with issues.
- discrete, you are working with a metaphor for the situation rather than the situation itself.
- fun. Most of the people who try this approach enjoy it (even those with no artistic skill).
The EFT Cafe is on Wednesday 11th July from 7pm-9pm at St Oswald's Hospice Teaching Centre.
The cost is just £10. All materials will be supplied but if you have a favourite "drawing kit" feel free to bring it along.
Note: Although this EFT Cafe is based on Picture Tapping by Philip Davies www.phoenixeft.co.uk I have not been trained by him in it's use. This is my understanding of his process with some ideas of my own.
