EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping Circle with Susan James, BCC, LICSW

Saturday, December 6th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm // Fee: Donations Acceptedwebsite_9028

This tapping circle is for those who want to practice their tapping in community and be inspired to continue to use this valuable tool!  It is recommended that participants have some sort of EFT tapping experience as the class time will be spent tapping rather than on first time instruction.  We will dive right into the various tapping techniques that have been presented in Susan’s Tapping for Wellness series.  You will leave feeling centered, empowered, and more like your amazing self! This first community tapping circle is donation based and will be held monthly at Dayaalu.  Donations can be via punches on your punchcard, cash, or checks to Dayaalu.
