The Tapping World Summit is an ambitious name for an event, much less an annual event. We wondered whether the event would live up to the billing, what it’s all about, and whether it’s worth our visitors’ precious time to participate.

The Pre-Launch of the 2014 Summit has begun
What is the Tapping World Summit
You’ve likely heard about it or seen promoted on various websites, perhaps even this one. In a nutshell, it’s a completely free, ten-day online event focused on demonstrating and teaching participants how to use an energy healing technique known as EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques. Each day, well-known EFT practitioners give free presentations on applying EFT to common conditions or situations the audience may be experiencing in their own lives, such as weight problems, anxiety, financial concerns, relationship troubles, pain relief and other health concerns.
If you are familiar with EFT, you likely have stories to tell of how you’ve been able to use this powerful tool to help yourself overcome problems, or even help friends, family members, or clients of your own. If you’re not familiar with it, you’re probably wondering, “What’s the big deal?” To answer that, you’ll need a little background on what EFT is and how it works.
“EFT offers great healing benefits.” – Dr. Deepak Chopra
EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques, was introduced by Gary Craig in the early 1990s, building on the work of Roger Callahan and countless Eastern medicine practitioners who have been well aware of the human body’s energy systems and its importance to health and well-being for thousands of years. Craig discovered that tapping with fingertips on certain parts of the body corresponding to points on the body’s energy system in combination with statements regarding a troubling condition could alleviate emotional responses to that condition, resulting in marked improvement or even complete relief.
While physical conditions are the usual focus of the better-known technique of acupressure (involving applying pressure to energy points on the body, itself derived from ancient Chinese acupuncture techniques involving manipulating the flow of energy through the body through the use of precisely-placed needles), EFT focuses on blunting or removing emotional response. Since virtually every unwanted human condition is linked to toxic stress caused by emotional response to triggers – from heart disease and addiction to overweight and anxiety – EFT can remove the root cause of many physical conditions as well as the more obviously emotional ones such as phobias, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, and fear of success, by removing the emotional power of the trigger.
“By removing emotional trauma, EFT helps heal physical symptoms too.” – Dr. Norm Shealy
The best part about EFT is that you are completely in control, able to use the technique on yourself anytime, anywhere, with no tools other than your own body and mind, for free. Unlike with most medications, there is no possibility of an overdose or typical side effects that can cause new problems as you’re trying to resolve existing ones, and if one approach isn’t quite getting you where you want to be, you are free to switch to another approach when you’re ready.
Craig’s early successes were largely focused on alleviating trauma and phobias, with particular emphasis on helping veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with the cooperation of the US Veterans Administration (VA). Craig refined his system with years of experimentation and observation of results and released the basic techniques to the public for free (http://www.emofree.com),using his web site and newsletter to build a network of thousands of personal and professional practitioners who shared their approaches and results.
“Put away your skepticism, this really works … I’ve had great results with tapping in my own life.” — Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
Since then, other EFT practitioners have made their mark on the field through their own approaches and refinements resulting in successful resolution of issues for their own clients. Some of these practitioners have built their reputations focusing on specific areas such as emotional obstacles to financial success or achieving a healthy weight or other limiting beliefs, while others are broader in their focus. Chances are, you may be familiar with some of the bigger names in EFT, such as Dawson Church, Carol Look, Nick Ortner, and Louise Hay, all of whom have contributed presentations to past Tapping World Summits.
The Tapping World Summit is a unique opportunity to learn from leaders in the field as they demonstrate their mastery of techniques while participants follow along and tap with the presenters to achieve their goals and alleviate their problems. The entire ten-day online event with twenty individual presentations is free to participants for the price of an email address, which will be used to send links to the presentations as well as post-event opportunities to learn more. The presentations are available for free online for 24 hours, after which they can be purchased as a collection for ongoing study and development.
“In all my years of clinical experience I have never encountered a single healing intervention as consistently effective as EFT.” – Dr. Joseph Mercola
Our conclusion: with the potential benefits of participating in the Tapping World Summit, the volume and variety of information presented, and the hard-to-beat price of free, we conclude that it’s well worth your valuable time to participate. We’d love to hear from you about your experiences and results of participation.
The 2014 Tapping World Summit Schedule
The 2014 Tapping World Summit comes on the tails of five years of successful training that has been taking place each year. Everyone from Joe Vitale to Jack Canfield have praised the training that takes place here and 2014 is sure to be yet another eventful experience. February 24, 2014 will be the start of a ten day journey that covers almost every aspect of tapping and how it can improve various parts of a person’s life.
The first day of the summit features presentations from Cheryl Richardson and Iyanla Vanzant. They will focus on presentations surrounding “Releasing Emotional Pain from the Past.” This means they will be teaching people how to find the cause of guilt and shame that you are feeling, along with how to get rid of them, and learning how to forgive people using a morning practice that makes it much simpler than many people think.
Day 2 covers “Healing The Body With Tapping” with the help of Nick Ortner and Julie Schiffman. These two EFT teachers will give seminars on how to remove pain and health problems. Tapping can make it easy to remove pain in different parts of your body and you can understand what the real cause of the pain is. Students will also learn how forgiveness and psychological issues can cause pain.
This day will feature Jessica Ortner and Carol Look teaching all about stress and how you can bring balance back to your life. Tapping, as taught here, will help release limiting beliefs when it comes to stress and losing weight. Jessica Ortner herself lost a great deal of weight using tapping, which is why she is here to share her help. A seminar will also be taught that illustrates the ways that tapping can help alleviate burnout and bring back clarity that has been whipped by stress.
Tapping can also help with financial problems, which is taught in Day 4. These sessions will teach how your feelings about debt and money can get in the way of your success. Societal issues with these things can stop you from getting out of debt and work back towards wealth.
There are three seminars on Day 5, all of which center on enhancing your life by getting rid of anger and anxiety issues that surround your life. Questions of “What if…” can stop you from getting on with your life and energy medicine will make it possible to enhance your results further. The bonus seminar on this day furthers the explanation of energy medicine and just what it can do for EFT students.
Day 6 is all about love. The two sessions today, led by Dawson Church and Lindsay Kenny, cover a variety of topics that show what can impede progress in relationship building. There is a biological aspect to relationships and tapping can help improve the problems you have that stop you from truly experiencing love and beneficial relationships.
Tapping can benefit both the young and old alike, as Brad Yates and Dr Pat Carrington will explain. Limiting beliefs around both of these age groups and taking care of very specific problems that they face compared to average adults is an important part of building lifelong success.
Everyone gets stuck at some point, but Day 8 focuses on keeping the momentum going after you get started at the seminar. Dr Paul Scheele and Rick Wilkes specialize in retraining your brain to listen to what you have to say and maintain long term success with the techniques that are taught at this World Summit.
Day 9 is filled with inspiration. Dr Lori Leyden and Dr Erin Shannon share their experiences with EFT all over the world and just how it has changed the life of so many people. Everyone from professional sports players to Rwanda citizens have benefited and these doctors will explain how.
Limiting beliefs and mental obstacles that you have set up without knowing will be eliminated in Day 10. The two seminars today teach ways that you can overcome any of these as Steve Wells and Gwenn Bonnell teach new practices. Perfectionism, preparing for success, worrying about a “downside,” and having a better understanding of the psychological changes ETF can make are all things that will be covered here.
As a bonus, Jessica Ortner will also teach a special session on integrating the tapping practices that have been learned in your daily life. This audio recorded session can help you revisit anything that was learned over the course of the seminar.

Tapping World Summit 2012 and EFT
The summit was started in 2009 and has had three annual summits so far. A different topic is discussed every day of the ten-day summit; past successful results are shown and explained. Experts speak on the topic and help participants to tap on the specific energetic acupressure points to derive benefit. The science is based on Energy Psychology which is about the relationship between energy systems and emotion, behavior, cognitive skills, health; and also includes the bioenergy and electromagnetic fields of the brain and body.
The summit in 2009 was attended by more than 81,000 people online; the 2010 summit had over a 100,000 people listening in and paying keen attention. The 2011 started on February 21st and there were the same 19 experts to conduct it. The eft and meridian tapping experts are like Carol Tuttle,DawsonChurch, Steve Wells, who live their teachings and so successfully communicate the same to others.
The summit helps you to love yourself, release stored-up negative thoughts and energies, guides you to achieve a better quality of life – all this in a sublime and quiet manner. The experts themselves practice what they preach as the proverbial saying goes and gives you live examples of practical successes. The process shows you how to remove your entire mental road blocks to success whether it is related to your health, financial situation, career or love life.
The summit of 2012 is drawing a lot of attention also due to the involvement of famous people such as Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield and Joe Vitale. A free interview by Jack Canfield is available online where he discusses his first experience with the summit and EFT, how to enhance the function of laws of attraction with technology and why your mind is an iceberg and what it could mean. The summit is a combination of Eastern acupuncture and Western Psychology to heal you spiritually, emotionally and psychologically.
Tapping World Summit proves that the human body is a vast energy field that can be worked with to achieve best results, and Bob Proctor agrees with the thought. Nicolas Ortner found the truth in this statement and started the Tapping World Summit in 2009. He believes that once you attend the summit for ten consecutive days, you will believe in the truth when you see the results in yourself. When you agree to attend the summit and give your email id you get a free Quick Start Guide by Nick Ortner himself, which explains how to get the maximum results from the session, tells you about the common passion he and his sister Jessica share to spread the word and learn tapping to start your life anew.
The sign up also entitles you to two other free videos – one by Carol Look called Introduction to Tapping and the other byDawsonChurchcalled tapping and modern science: the science behind these Astonishing Results. Carol’s guide takes you step by step on the process of tapping, tells you how one technique helps in many different conditions, how to react when you achieve your target and how to stay focused and what should be said while tapping. Dawson’s interview gives you the whole scientific background of tapping and the way it heals even in conditions related to the sports field.
Margaret Lynch, who is the author of The Secret Intentional Wealth, has been teaching and healing at the summit from the first one in 2009. She has an innovative and qualitative style in her presentation as she helps you usher in powerful changes in your life. Her remarkable video Tapping for Miracles was released in 2011.
To get the maximum benefit out of the summit and the tapping, you should be clear about your problems and what you wish to achieve from the experience. This helps you to focus on the problem and seek the right solution while going through the tapping process at the specific points. A special mention can be made here regarding the experiences of the young people ofRwanda, the country that was ravaged by internal fighting decades ago and countless locals tortured and killed by the governing body. Tapping World Summit has been able to help the younger generation who went through horrendous experiences in their childhood in the horrible past. Slowly but surely the tapping is helping them to heal and also forgive those responsible for their despicable experiences. These children learned to forgive with the help of the tapping method; surely it can be of great help to plenty more.
