June 2021 e-letter

Eden Method header  for e-letter

We have some lively news. We are writing another book, this one on the power of Energy Psychology, the natural follow-up to our 2005 “The Promise of Energy Psychology.” And we are thrilled to be collaborating with Sounds True on this new project! Sounds True is a multi-media publisher that we respect tremendously. They have for more than three decades featured the greatest leaders in the innovative healing, consciousness, and spirituality arenas.


Our long and productive relationship with Sounds True started with a program on “Rituals for Conscious Dying” in 1991, progressed to the still-popular Energy Medicine Kit in 2005, has included various presentations and podcasts, and is about to take a new leap with our next book, which will focus on Energy Psychology. We are proud to be in their fold and could not be more pleased than to be collaborating with Tami Simon and her team on this new project!


While the book won’t appear for a couple more years (there is the little matter of writing it and then having it go into production), we are going to offer something very substantial about Energy Psychology, beginning with this e-letter issue and then proceeding through the rest of the year and beyond (see below). We thought we’d kick it off with a few passages we’ve drafted for the Introduction to the Sounds True book, saying a bit about ourselves and the topic:


From David’s Reflections: “I received my doctorate in clinical psychology in 1972, and I have worked as a licensed psychologist in a variety of contexts for nearly five decades. My roles have included serving as a psychotherapist in private and public settings, clinical supervisor, consultant to community mental health groups, group therapist in psychiatric wards, speaker at innumerable conferences, workshop leader, associate professor of psychology, instructor in psychiatry, teacher in continuing education programs, dissertation advisor, author, organizational consultant, CEO of an innovative health care organization and, early in my career, director of a youth-oriented hotline and drop-in center. About 20 years ago, I went through a training program in energy psychology and introduced it into my practice.”


From Donna’s Reflections: “When David began to study energy psychology about two decades ago, I was one of his first practice clients. As I watched him get more and more involved with tapping, I was thrilled to see his success with it.


I remember when we used to have arguments about Freud. David would defend Freud as a pioneering genius who had to be appreciated within the historical limitations of the time in which he lived. But there was no way I was going to be impressed by the guy who came up with the term ‘penis envy”! Now David was coming onto my ground.


David eventually became a leader in the energy psychology community, and I was invited to speak at some of their conferences. Although tapping can be powerful and effective all by itself, I learned that many of the therapists who attended my presentations went on to study the much broader field of Energy Medicine.


Then in 2012, I found out that, in a survey by the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP), most of the respondents said that Eden Energy Medicine is one of their top three energy medicine modalities! I was surprised since the Eden Method is known for working mainly on physical rather than psychological issues… but it was a most welcome surprise!"


We are excited to be expanding our coverage of Energy Psychology with this e-letter issue!

Summer blessings!

Eden Method in Action

From Hero to Homeless: How Energy Psychology is Saving Lives

Millions of veterans struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which makes it exceptionally challenging for them to return to civilian life. Tragically, PTSD is also believed to be the reason why so many veterans -- heroes willing to give their lives to save others -- end up taking their own.

But there’s help at hand. A small, passionate band of volunteer therapists are working tirelessly to bring health and healing to these forgotten heroes with powerful Energy Psychology techniques, and the results are nothing short of remarkable!


Two Minute Explanation of How Energy Psychology Works

How Can Tapping on the Body Lead to Psychological Changes?

Click the video above to watch David's very clear explanation.

This issue launches our 10-month series on Energy Psychology (see below). But how can tapping on acupressure points lead to the profound psychological changes being described in thousands of case reports and backed by a substantial body of research? Award-winning and NY Times best-selling author, David Feinstein, Ph.D., offers some insights in this two-minute video clip.


New e-Letter Series on Energy Psychology /Tapping!

Week One Begins!

Over the past few years, David has written a series of articles about Energy Psychology (the umbrella term for Emotional Freedom Techniques, Thought Field Therapy, “tapping,” and other personal growth techniques that work with the body’s subtle energies). Energy Psychology is turning out to be a powerful contribution to psychotherapy, thus David’s continued excitement about it nearly 50 years into his career as a clinical psychologist.

While David’s papers have been written primarily for therapists who use Energy Psychology methods in their practices, some of these papers are proving to be highly instructive for their clients as well. Whether you are a therapist, life coach, or someone looking into energy psychology for your own growth and challenges, we have selected 10 of David’s most influential or informative journal articles or book chapters and will present one each month over the next 10 months (he is actually still working on a few of them).

Each e-letter will provide a brief overview of the topic, highlight some of the most important points, and then link to the entire paper. Among the topics will be Energy Psychology Through the Eyes of Those Who Use It, Healing from Trauma, Addressing the Psychological Roots of Illness, Treating Addictions, Working with Death and Dying, Research Demonstrating That Energy Psychology Is Fast and Effective, and How Tapping Works.

We hope this series will bring you greater understanding about what we believe is proving to be one of the most important developments for psychotherapy and personal development in recent decades.

 The first article in the series follows.

How Tappers See Tapping

Tapping on acupuncture points while saying certain statements aloud is a powerful tool for resolving mental, emotional, and physical difficulties. More than 120 clinical trials show the approach (which falls under the category of “Energy Psychology”) to be fast and effective in producing strong outcomes.

But how can tapping on the skin make a difference? It looks strange and seems like wishful thinking, yet informed estimates suggest that millions of people worldwide have experienced substantial positive change!

To unravel the mysteries of tapping, a new in-depth analysis by psychologist David Feinstein examined the reports of more than 800 practitioners and clients who participated in 15 studies based on interviews or online surveys.

The post includes a fascinating look at how tapping can help with physical conditions, showing its success in the treatment of a woman diagnosed with malignant tumors in her throat and lymph nodes.
