The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is also known as tapping. It is a technique that has been around since 1995. Acupressure points are tapped in a sequence to help release physical and emotional pain. The positive effects are quick and long lasting. The governments of several countries, including Britain, Canada and Australia, have approved their national health programs to provide tapping as a treatment modality. The American Veteran’s Administration has also approved of tapping to be used for treatment. Chris Acklen is leading our new tapping group. Chris is a clinical social worker, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. She has had several tapping trainings and much continued study. Chris uses the technique personally and in her work with clients.

This is our oldest continuing group at USC ABQ! It is facilitated by Patrick Knight and Jay Pullen. We will be returning to in person gatherings in the future. From TruthUnity.net: "We approach the Bible as the story of the spiritual development of our soul. Remember that New Thought teaches that all things we experience in life had their origin in thought; “we create our experiences by the activity of our thinking.” Metaphysical Bible students, therefore, relate each Bible story, and the characters and places in those stories, to their own development as spiritual beings.
Charles Fillmore wrote, “Apart from being a book of great historical and biographical interest, the Bible is, from Genesis to Revelation, in its inner or spiritual meaning, a record of the experiences and the development of the human soul.” The “theater” is in our consciousness, not in the biblical lands. Although the historical biblical story occurred long ago in the faraway biblical lands, when we do a metaphysical bible interpretation, all the action occurs in our consciousness. We do not metaphysically interpret historical events! What we metaphysically interpret are events in consciousness, in a belief that what occurred centuries ago is an expression of the same Divine Ideas that are now expressing in our own consciousness."
