An Extra Special Message from Victor Lee Lewis:
The seeds of the Radical Resilience Institute were sown in the soil of a very personal tragedy that occurred 50 years ago. The trauma of that event drove me to a life-long search for healing and justice. The searching and finding that I have done and the healing that has resulted and continues in my life have borne fruit as this "one-room school house" I call the Radical Resilience Institute. Join me in celebrating the gift of healing, and the birth of the Radical Resilience Institute from the ashes of that early loss.
For a day and a half I will lead a small self-selected group of individuals in a two day tapping event. How will this be different from a conventional EFT workshop? This will be tapping all the way. Virtually all of the theory and instruction will come from the demonstrations that I do. The best way to learn EFT is to do AND witness it. Through the EFT discovery of "borrowing benefits/blessings," the observers who supportively tap along with the demonstration volunteers will usually get benefits or relief around their own issues, even without working on them directly. You will have to see it to believe it.
Because of the specific anniversaries involved, this event can happen in this way only once. I would be honored by your presence.
"From Radical Brokenness to Radical Resilience" The original version of my story of personal healing published to the EFTUniverse Web Site.
50 YEARS AGO
On October 8th, 1961, 50 years ago, I watched in helplessness and horror as my 4 year-old sister choked to death from a car power window that I had just attempted to close. That trauma and multiple traumas from subsequent events lead to years of severe suicidal depression and PTSD symptoms. It also led to a passionate search for healing and justice. My search eventually led me to the discovery of Emotional Freedom Techniques. In one extraordinary session of "tapping" on this memory, using EFT, in 2007 (not that long ago), the back of this trauma was broken forever. In 46 MINUTES, I had completely obliterated a trauma that had haunted me for 46 YEARS. And I knew it was "over" the moment it happened. I said 2 things that day as I stood up in my girlfriend's living room and looked around at a completely different world:
- "This is never going to be like it was again. The nightmare is OVER."
- "The rest of my life will involve my understanding more deeply what just happened to me and sharing the power that has transformed my life with others.
This "Tapping Intensive" seems like an excellent way to honor the memory of my sister, celebrate my healing and share the work of the Radical Resilience Institute.
*EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) may be thought of as an advanced form of acupuncture for the emotions that enables us to heal the reactivity of the "fight-flight-freeze" survival systems of the brain. We don’t use needles, but light tapping with the fingertips on specific points on the body's bio-electrical meridian system instead. With EFT, you can learn to quickly boost your emotional intelligence, resolve every-day stress, transform your relationships, and rewrite your life. Join us for this special celebration of healing and possibility.
