Considered essential, there are exercises included that will guide you to apply EFT and what you have learned in the course. Doing these exercises will have a definite impact on experienced levels of trauma.
The course will take about an hour and a half and will leave the student with sufficient understanding to begin engaging in the practice of eliminating unwanted fears and emotions.
