Intro to Tapping 12/28/2011-Wed Gathering in Rockville

This Wednesday Gathering we learn how to tap to release stuck emotional issues and traumas with Jennifer Ludders.  


Emotional Freedom Techniques EFT is a modality that combines the principles of the Chinese meridian system with modern psychology.  EFT targets acupuncture points, however, rather than using needles, EFT stimulates these points by lightly tapping and allows the body’s physical energy system to engage with the mind, helping to achieve alignment between the two. EFT is a gentle technique that works with our natural ‘Mind-Body’ connection.  Tapping on specific acupressure or EFT tapping points while focusing on a problem or unpleasant physical sensation helps to alleviate or ‘lift’ the negative charge from the associated feeling. Stuck, blocked or pent up negative energy in our bodies can be the root cause of all sorts of mental and/or physical problems and cause a disruption in the body's energy circuits. Using EFT helps reduce/relieve and can even remove energetic distress in the body. Even though EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, it has been clinically proven to be effective in treating many things that keep us from having a happier, healthier life such as ongoing stress/anxiety, fears and phobias, depression, insomnia, physical pain, trauma, cravings, among many others.

After working in the financial sector and as a diplomat for the U.S. State Department posted in Mexico and Vietnam, Jennifer Ludders decided to pursue her long-held passions in the realm of coaching and mind-body healing as a new career.  Jennifer attended an Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) tapping group in Chiang Mai, Thailand and was amazed by how easy and effective EFT was on such a wide range of issues and immediately began using it at every opportunity, on both herself and anyone who was open.  She heard about an organization in Indonesia having great success in using EFT to provide trauma relief and emotional support for survivors of natural disasters and, after receiving her Level I and II EFT certifications, went there to learn more about the use of EFT for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and trauma.  Jennifer is now actively documenting and promoting EFT initiatives throughout the world, as well as building her practice as an EFT practitioner, Life Coach and Hypnotist.

Intro to Acupuncture 11/30/11-Wed Gathering in Rockville

This Wednesday Gathering we learn about Acupuncture with Pat Nordell.


Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. In the United States, where practitioners incorporate healing traditions from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries.



Practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the key components of traditional Chinese medicine. In TCM, the body is seen as a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. Yin represents the cold, slow, or passive principle, while yang represents the hot, excited, or active principle. According to TCM, health is achieved by maintaining the body in a "balanced state"; disease is due to an internal imbalance of yin and yang. This imbalance leads to blockage in the flow of qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians. Qi can be unblocked, according to TCM, by using acupuncture at certain points on the body that connect with these meridians. Sources vary on the number of meridians, with numbers ranging from 14 to 20. One commonly cited source describes meridians as 14 main channels "connecting the body in a weblike interconnecting matrix" of at least 2,000 acupuncture points.

The Work of Byron Katie 11/9/11 - Wed Gathering in Rockville

Work Of KatieThis Wednesday gathering we learn how to use the Work of Byron Katie with Sandra Solomon. Do you want to release judgements you hold in your life? Do you want to find inner peace? Do you want to transform your experience of life at warp speed? Then come learn the simple process of self-inquiry known as The Work of Byron Katie. This amazing process, when used honestly and with integrity, has the power to create enlightenment on purpose.

“Eckhart Tolle's teaching is the ‘what,’ and The Work is the “how,” - Byron Katie

“The Work is a razor sharp sword—use it.” - Eckhart Tolle


Here is what you will learn:

  • Learn to investigate your stressful thinking using four questions and a turnaround.
  • Experience how you live your life when you believe thoughts that are not true for you.
  • Discover new possibilities and different perspectives.
  • Learn how to facilitate yourself and others using The Work’s four questions and turnarounds.
  • Realize what is true for you, and take home the ability to live effectively with clarity and in accordance with your own integrity.


With the Work “We begin to question stressful thoughts and we find something new happening. We come to see that thoughts aren’t personal. And when we see that, miracles take place. It's what we read about…like unconditional love. The next time you see this person and your judgments of him, you may wonder why you're not seeing it that way. You're seeing someone just doing the best he can. It's a radical shift—this glimpsing into oneself.”


The Work is something you can take home with you. It is a method which brings your own inner wisdom to the surface. You become your own healer.
