We truly hope we get to see you and celebrate with you next month. (If you're being mindful of your pocketbook, the next price savings deadline is May 13.) 

There are only 9 spots left in the EFT Professional Skills 1 pre-conference workshop (May 29-30). If you want in, now's the time to register.

If you're ready to help heal the body politic with HOPE and transform the world's perception of EP through dialogue with your representatives, you won't want to miss this wonderful post conference opportunity (June 3) to learn from Jim Turner, Esq. about transpartisan political engagement. Since we'll be in DC, you'll be able to put your learning into action with a trip to Capitol Hill where you'll meet with the staff of your congressperson and be a Citizen Healer by day's end. CLICK HERE TO ENROLL

Sending Love and Healing to Boston and West, Texas

The beauty in our study and practice of energy psychology is how it deepens our understanding of the power of intention and energy - and allows us to respond to tragedy with love and light. We mourn with our fellow men and women, but we also know that deep, transformative healing is possible and how powerful it is to turn our energy and prayers in that direction. 

We send love and healing energy to all our friends in Boston and Texas. We send love and healing energy to everyone in this country who now feels more scared or angry or traumatized. We send love and healing energy to everyone around the world suffering at the hands of their fellow men and women.

Here is a beautiful prayer-intention from Jill Leigh, one of our dear Boston-based ACEP members (and conference presenter). We can read this, recite this, or pray this and send to whoever needs it at any time. Thank you Jill.

Remote Healing Collective

The Collective is a remote healing process, no dial-in or in-person commitment required.

I stand in unity, peace and fellowship with humanity. I am the light that shines in darkness, bringing comfort and solace to families and loved ones affected by the explosions at the Boston Marathon.

In the place of conscious awareness, The Collective's energy, vitality and integrity brings light, balance, peace and harmony, dissipating fear, tension, hatred and grief.

I stand in unity, peace and fellowship with humanity.

ACEP Visions: Holding the Space Together 
At the 2012 ACEP Board Retreat, we set a goal of creating three images that, if they came to fruition, many other things would had to have happened for them to come true. The idea was to paint a future vision that pulls us forward while letting go of trying to plan each specific step along the way...creating the end point and letting the universe guide the  process.

We shared these images at last year's conference and would like to remind you to help us energize these goals by sharing the vision with us:

  1. Energy Psychology Is accepted by the VA and/or the DoD as a legitimate form of therapy for Veterans and Soldiers. The specific image is the head of the VA and Executive DIrector of ACEP shaking hands with the logos of the VA and the DoD behind them.
  2. Energy Psychology is on the cover page of Time or Newsweek or Psychology Today as the new great treatment for PTSD and other disorders. (The image is obvious.)
  3. ACEP has a 4 million dollar budget. (The image is the ACEP board applauding the new $4,000,000 budget.)

Hot off the Press: Study on EFT and Academic Performance
Here's some new literature to add to the EP library - a study from Elizabeth Boath and colleages at Staffordshire University in the UK on EFT and academic performance.

Boath, E. Stewart, A & Carryer, A (2013) Tapping for success: Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) for enhancing academic performance in University students. Innovative Practice in Higher Education, Vol1 I(3).

While the study did not have a control/comparison group, the research includes both qualitative and quantitative assessments and was conducted at a university - so it's definintely keeping the ball moving down the field. To read the study, CLICK HERE.

ACEP Development Committee is Formed!
We're pleased to announce that our newly established Development Committee held its first meeting on Friday, March 29. ACEP does a wonderful job with all that we currently handle but we don't have a speck of room on our plate to add on any of the additional tasks that will help energy psychology have a greater impact in the world. Additional funding to hire more staff could help solve that problem. We also need money for more research so that EP can be included in elite listings of the most effective therapies.

Committee members include: Carol Phelps, Danielle Mincey White, Debby Vajda, Marlene Cameron, Marty Frantz, Rod Lind, Ryah Ki and Wade Cockburn. If you have ideas to share or would like to help us, please contact Debby at - thanks!

EP Around the World: ACEP Board Member, Dr. John Deipold Introduces EP and Heart Assisted Therapy to 200 Psychologists in the Netherlands
We're always happy to report the good work ACEP members are doing to extend the reach of EP around the world and recently learned that in November of last year John H. Diepold, Jr., PhD, presented an invited full-day workshop for the members of the Nederlands Instituut van Psychologen (NIP) in Utrecht, Netherlands. Dr. Diepold spoke to 200 NIP psychologist attendees on Heart Assisted Therapy®, providing them with an introductory experience. 

Dr. Diepold will be teaching a one-day Pre-Conference Workshop on Heart Assisted Therapy on May 30 in Reston, VA this year:
Heart Assisted Therapy (HAT®) can be described as a Humanistic Psychotherapy model because of the pronounced existential-phenomenological and person-centered characteristics within a holistic mind-body paradigm. 

This psychotherapy model incorporates a mindful whole of the individual’s cognitions, emotions, and sensory experiences using an integrative and self-nurturing protocol with a sub-structure grounded in "energy” psychology. HAT employs "Awareness Streaming” and a stabilizing breathing treatment while overlapping hands are placed over the heart ("heart breaths”) throughout the protocol promoting self-regulation. 

The HAT model of psychotherapy maximizes the therapist’s skills in listening, observing, and planning while integrating procedures that enable the opportunity for the individual to be validated, and to heal, shift emotions and thinking, adapt, and move forward in life. HAT is Dr. Diepold's original work and is a culmination of over 30 years of clinical experience.  Interested ACEP members can read more at or contact John at

Collective Healing: Growing ACEP and Transforming Paradigms
Now more than ever on our planet, the collective force of healing professionals is needed to spread the energy of peace, hope and joy. Visualize together that our June conference is overflowing, membership is so abundant that we have to hire more staff, and research money flows in generously. We are the energetic bridge to the new healthcare, the new education system, and the new "uncorporate" world. Now tune in to your preferred energetic strategy-- tap, or hold-- and see ACEP as a central beam of light attracting those who will practice energy medicine side by side with traditional medicine, and develop schools where children's classrooms include the outdoors and the surrounding community. See businesses partnering with community projects to share and create. Feel and see the energy of generosity and kindness emanate-- transforming the old paradigms.
