The Thought Body    NCBTMB ACEP Logo

DAY ONE:  The Thought Body: Basic Introduction
DAY TWO: The Thought Body: Practicum and Mastery

When emotional turmoil, stress, and illness enter our experience, we can learn to take charge of our own healing. By becoming more aware of limiting beliefs and symbolic messages reflected within the body and the environment, we can consciously let go of dis-ease. With intent and focus, we can complete the past, heal the present and create a healthy future.

The Thought Body offer powerful insight and clear direction, enabling us, with creative thought, to become more aware of limiting beliefs reflected within the body and the environment and to move toward wholeness within our relationships, our bodies, our selves.

Discover how our thoughts create our environment and how physical ailments provide a symbolic pathway that can lead us toward greater health, success, and loving relationships.

Basic Introduction Learning Objectives

By the end of these workshops, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize events in the environment and physical body as symbolic of one’s limiting and/or positive thoughts, and use those symbols to heal the personal environment.
  • Develop a sensitivity to others’ thoughts and feelings, yet “ground” and set boundaries.
  • Express Unconditional Positive Regard through imagery and breath to effect positive energy and emotional transfer, being response-able to others, not for them.

  • Use a cognitive-behavioral approach to help release limitations and stress within the mental and emotional body, reaching a greater number and variety of clients.

Practicum and Mastery Learning Objectives

  • Apply the skills acquired in The Thought Body: Basic Introduction.
  • Explore “expressive physio-therapy”: body movement to release tension from the emotional and thought bodies.
  • More readily recognize physical ailments as symbolic of one’s limiting thoughts, & use those symbols to heal the personal environment.
  • Work with metaphor applying changes to the energy systems, energy centers & polarity channels clients need to work with, and tailor these techniques for individual clients.
  • Gain certainty in using body dialogue, imagery, the yogic energizing breath, instant relaxation, kinesiology and self-healing techniques.

Callahan Techniques – Thought Field Therapy  NCBTMB ACEP Logo

Basic Algorithm Training and Certification

This dynamic, interactive approach to healing is a safe and effective technique for the elimination of emotional distress. It provides immediate relief for post-traumatic stress disorders, addictions, phobias, depression, anxieties, and more by directly treating the blockage in the energy flow created by a disturbing thought pattern. With the client’s use of key meridian points in specific sequences, TFT eliminates negative feelings previously associated with a thought pattern.

Disturbances in the body’s energy systems are responsible for causing negative emotions and behavior in addition to exacerbating physical problems, allergic reactions, and more. The TFT techniques offer a gentle method of learning to quickly eliminate these disturbances.

This truly holistic approach is a mind-body treatment using a combination psychotherapy, modern science, Oriental medicine, and the body’s own energy system. Effective with adults, children, groups, and even animals, TFT is amazingly diverse by itself or as a compliment to other therapies. You will be amazed at the instant, lasting results!

Learning Objectives:

  • To be knowledgeable of the theory and practice of Thought Field Therapy.
  • To be able to use Thought Field Therapy effectively with clients.
  • To be able to help clients with depression, anxiety, anger, trauma responses and more.
  • To explore any impediments to treatment and methods of reducing and/or eliminating those impediments.
  • To identify the role of individual sensitivities and their role in the treatment process.
  • To know when to refer clients to other, more advanced TFT practitioners.
  • To have access to advanced trainings and other resources for professional development.

Life is not only about the money, not only about the perfect house, security, the perfect job, stability, or holding onto the past. It is about celebrating in the Now, recognizing the perfection of all that is, letting it grow, and manifesting it throughout life. Let’s do it!

We will focus on goals, gaining clarity on those goals that will bring us true joy and happiness.

Expanding even more, we will develop manifestation rituals in order to create “that or something better for the Highest Good of all concerned.” With no barriers, no reserve, and no injunctions, let us DEMAND from ourselves and the limitless Universe, that which makes us happy, healthy, prosperous, loving and loved.class=”italic”> Let’s shout it out to the world!
