What’s interesting about EFT is that it is a process that really, in some sense engages … like super learning. And super learning is like pushing the record button on the subconscious mind.

GIVING

Mind Heart Connect evolved with the collaboration of Associate Prof. Peta Stapleton (Bond University), Dr Lori Leyden (Create Global Healing) &
Kate Helder (Author and Creator of toolboxtime™).

We look forward to sharing the official launch of Mind Heart Connect Foundation and bringing you updates on our support of Project LIGHT: Australia and future programs.

Mind Heart Connect Foundation - Project LIGHT: Australia

Since the launch of Project LIGHT: Australia at our inaugural event in 2017, we have supported the work of Dr Lori Leyden and her team as they have facilitated workshops and trainings throughout Australia.

Witnessing the positive impact of this work we were determined to establish a non profit organisation. Well, dreams do come true as the Foundation was approved by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) in July 2018. This will ensure continuity in the delivery of training programs, supporting community leaders and those serving populations with the greatest need for emotional healing.

Make sure you like our Facebook page and we’ll ensure you are kept up to date with our progress.

We invite you to watch this short video, showcasing a recent visit to the Kimberley region in Western Australia in May, 2018.

Ambassadors

We are thrilled our first Youth Ambassador, Ellie Colquhoun from Melbourne, has continued with fundraising initiatives to support Mind Heart Connect Foundation and the work undertaken with Dr Lori Leyden & Project LIGHT; Australia. Ensure you join the Mailing List, so you will be the first to hear our updates.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Who should attend Mind Heart Connect?

EVERYONE in the community will benefit from attending this event. 

Professionals in primary medical and allied health disciplines including general practitioners, psychologists, social workers, mental health nurses, psychiatrists, counsellors, performance and coaching experts will particularly benefit. Students and recent graduates from psychology/health/medicine related disciplines will also learn and benefit.

Whether we’re leading a team, a classroom or a family, we can all benefit from mindfulness/mediation and using the skills of EFT/tapping promoting self-awareness, authenticity and compassion.

Everyone who participates in the event will receive a Certificate of Attendance via email indicating hours attended. Certificates will be completed using the given name at the point of registration and payment. This may be used for self recorded professional development requirements.

Why has EFT/tapping been chosen for some of the workshops?

EFT means “Emotional Freedom Techniques” and is a powerful self-help method. EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on acupuncture points.

Over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.

“Nothing comes closer to ‘magic’ than the positive results I have personally witnessed using EFT on thousands of my patients who suffered from physical and emotional pain and illness.” Dr. Mercola – Founder of mercola.com, most visited natural health site globally.

Is EFT/tapping evidence based?

In a critical review published in the American Psychological Association’s (APA) journal Review of General Psychology in 2012, researchers found that EFT “consistently demonstrated strong effect sizes and other positive statistical results that far exceed chance after relatively few treatment sessions.” http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/gpr/16/4/364/

EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals…

EFT research includes investigators affiliated with many different institutions – these range from Harvard Medical School, to the University of California at Berkeley, to City University of New York, to Walter Reed Military Medical Center, to Texas A&M University, to JFK University. Institutions in other countries whose faculty have contributed to EFT research include Staffordshire University (United Kingdom), Lund University (Sweden), Ankara University (Turkey), Santo Tomas University (Philippines), Lister Hospital (England), Cesar Vallejo University (Peru), Bond University (Australia) and Griffith University (Australia).

Here is a 10 minute video that summarises research.

How will I benefit from participating in this event?

This is a unique opportunity to learn from the leaders in the field, and hear the evidence behind these techniques. You will walk away not just with knowledge and skill, but with a personal experience of HOW the techniques work. If you already have experience in mindfulness, meditation and EFT/tapping, this is a perfect opportunity to up skill, network and explore collaborative efforts.

Everyone who participates in the event will receive a Certificate of Attendance via email indicating hours attended. Certificates will be completed using the given name at the point of registration and payment. This may be used for self recorded professional development requirements.
