We’ve added new content to our site, about stress, trauma, insomnia, depression, pain, cancer, blood pressure & heart health and fertility, pregnancy & childbirth. Each page has a short essay with general suggestions and resources..
Hello, everyone.
I spent the week at the ACEP conference (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology) in Baltimore, the umbrella organization that houses the new alphabet therapies - thought field therapy, emotional freedom technique, tapas acupressure, and so forth. Several of the practitioners and techniques that I featured in my book were there, training and demonstrating, and it was a pleasure to see all the new invention and good work going on. Check it out for yourself, and get on their various mailing lists for trainings and conferences if this field of inquiry interests you: . This is probably the best smorgasbord of teaching on the new energy medicine, "Alphabet Therapies" (EMDR, EFT, TFT, TAT etc etc,) and energy release techniques like muscle testing, tapping and acupressure that you’ll find, by grounded, experienced, researcher-practitioner-pioneers. There are continuing education credits for nurses, social workers, professional counselors, marriage & family therapists, educational psychologists and drug & alcohol counselors.

This week we have two different examples, one on our ASK BR page and one on our INSPIRING STORY page, about how imagery is conducive to helping traumatized young people who are resisting traditional help, precisely because it is a portable, self-administered intervention. It can serve a bridge function, filling in the gap and helping the person ultimately get all the help he or she needs. Check it out.

By the way, you may have noticed - we decided to add some serious content to the opening page of our site, based on the issues and concerns you ask most about, like stress, trauma, insomnia, depression, pain, cancer, blood pressure & heart health and fertility, pregnancy & childbirth. Each page is like a little explanatory essay with accompanying resources and general suggestions. We hope it’s helpful and offers you quick access to some decent follow-up. This format offers more than just posting FAQ’s.

If you have time, do check out the Special Sales we’ve got going on. Our Mom-to-Be Pack has been making quite the hit as a gift to your favorite pregnant goddess, consisting of our 2-CD set for pregnancy & labor, our CD for sound sleep, and the Baby Om book. It’s now $39.95 - $14 off. In addition, our CDs for Successful Relationships, Infertility, Relaxation & Wellness, Menopause and Pregnancy & Childbirth are all on sale at $2 off the usual price.

Our new catalog goes to print this week. I’m very excited about some of the new resources we’ll be bringing you. Stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled!

Take care and be well,
