Energy Psychology's TCM Roots: Harmonizing with Nature
With significant roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a practice of Energy Psychology is enhanced when reflecting on the energetic insights of chinese medicine regarding the seasons and their impact on us physically and emotionally.

The following is excerpted from The Work of Autumn: Cleaning Out Old Negativity, by Neil Gumenick, a teacher and practitioner of classical five-element acupuncture.

"In autumn we learn more about ourselves, perhaps, than in any other season. Having provided the harvest, Nature now makes everything bare. In this season Nature lets go of its abundant creation of the past year in a grand final display. Autumn marks the end of the growing season - a turning inward, a falling away of outer-directed energy. Leaves turn color and drop. The old leaves go back to the earth, enriching it to promote the coming of new leaves, a new harvest.

Nature instructs us about our own cycles of creating and letting go: Trees in autumn don't stubbornly hold onto their leaves because they might need them next year. Yet how many of us defy the cycle and hold onto what we've produced or collected - those decayed leaves, that old negativity? How can we hope for a fresh harvest next year unless we let go of the old and start afresh?

In Chinese medicine, autumn is the season of the element Metal (or air). Grief is the emotion of the Metal element. We all experience loss, separation, and "letting go," and we appropriately feel grief at those times. Grief cleanses us of what is no longer needed in our lives. When the energy of Metal is blocked or imbalanced within us, our expression of grief likewise becomes imbalanced and inappropriate. It may be excessive and ongoing. Or, in the other extreme, it may be absent, as in those who cannot express their grief."

Planning Now for 2012 Tax-Deductible Donations to ACEP
With November just around the bend, we'll be toasting our champagne glasses to the promise of 2013 before we know it. ACEP has great plans for growth in the coming year, but, as always, will need your help to fulfill the vision and the mission.

Financial contributions are tax-deductible and can be directed toward EP research, humanitarian aid or the general fund. If you'd like to check this off your list now, you can easily donate online by CLICKING HERE.

As noted in last month's member E-News, ACEP has agreed to match donations received for EP Research, up to $5,000, between now and December 31, 2012. The money raised will go toward funding seed grants for new quality studies in Energy Psychology. It is our goal to fund four $5,000 seed grants in 2013.

Collective Healing: The Season of Gathering
It is Harvest time in part of the world. As you meditate this month, approach the gathering season as metaphor. It is an appropriate time to reflect on what has become dust or washed away in your life or your business, making room to glean fresh ideas, greater positive thinking, and creative endeavors. Hold your heart center, and move into collective gathering with your colleagues world-wide. Together, let us focus our collective mind on gathering world-wide acceptance for our work, awareness that our medicine is simple and inexpensive, and that all citizens of the world have the right to basic health-care.
