We are currently submitting it to various film festivals including some of the more prestigious ones and others that are particularly relevant to our theme of peace, healing, trauma, human rights, etc.

TFT Foundation board member, Suzanne Connolly, and our documentarian, Robert Stone will be introducing and representing the film in Cambodia.

TFT Foundation board member Mary Cowley will be introducing it and representing it in Vail. It is possible that some of our other boards members will also help represent it in Vail. We invite all who can attend to do so.

Our translator and narrator, Prosper Ishimwe, has completed the back translation into Kinyarwandan and that version should be available within a couple of weeks. It was the greatest privilege to watch and hear story after story told of the horrors suffered by Rwandans and the transformative healing that has taken place in their lives since learning TFT. It is an honor to be able to give them back this documentary in their language to share with others.

The Rwandans have forgiven.   And, through the healing power of TFT, they have not only forgiven, they have transformed themselves from survivors to happy, productive and loving people.

The TFT Foundation will produce a shorter version, 56 minutes, for PBS. I am in talks with a PBS station now who has expressed interest in being our sponsoring station for PBS distribution. We will continue to explore all distribution channels; film festivals, PBS and DVD sales.

If you have ever wanted to contribute to “peace” on our planet, here is a powerful and proven way to do so. Join us in getting this film out to all who are or may have experienced trauma in their lives. If you wish to send your intention of peace out to the world, a donation will help insure we can continue this kind of trauma relief around the world.

Together we can create peace through a proven model for large scale trauma relief and it is available to all. To DONATE or purchase your copy of the DVD, go to the foundation site, or you may email, if you have other ways of assisting distribution.

Dr. Callahan’s legacy lives on in the healing of traumatized people the world over.

Thank you to all of you who have contributed to make this possible, helping with the research, the humanitarian relief and the filming. I will place announcements updating our status at the various film festivals and our PBS distribution. If you can attend one of the festivals, we would love to see you there.

Getting Rid of Fears and Phobias with TFT

JoanneBy John Plester, TFT-ADV, RCT, UK Boot Camp Trainer

For those of us that have never suffered a phobia, it can be hard to appreciate the devastating fear it can create. With a phobia, a person would really feel an extreme amount of anxiety and dread about a certain object, living being, place or scenario.

In their minds, those with a phobia are likely to perceive the object of their phobia as posing inappropriate degrees of danger and respond accordingly. Frequently, the phobic trigger is almost always something quite harmless and ordinary. This is why the response can be so difficult to understand for people without the phobia.

Let’s celebrate a 30 year anniversary

Bob BrayBy Robert L Bray, PhD, TFT-VT

Thirty years after Dr. Roger Callahan published his first book using what was at that time called Callahan Techniques®, now known as Thought Field Therapy (TFT), the proof of its effectiveness in changing lives is abundant.

The research, case studies and instructions supporting the effective use of TFT and other energy psychology techniques is easily available. Tens of thousands of professionals and peers around the world have received training in its use. Dr. Callahan’s books have been translated into 12 different languages.

TFT is not language, age, or culture specific and can be used universally. In service oriented communities of all kinds, exposure to TFT and tapping or energy psychology in general is becoming more and more common.

Tapping Away Trauma in Five African Nations

TFT Foundation Supports Expanded Healing and Training in Africa

In November the TFT Foundation supported their trainers and practitioners in Rwanda as they reached out to surrounding African nations and peoples needing trauma relief.

From the IZERE Center in Byumba, there were 20 TFT trained therapists who participated in the Youth Forum to support African Youth from five nearby countries. Many were treated and others trained to be able to share TFT with those in need.

On the 12’th of December, there will be a community treatment day where several hundred Rwandans will be provided treatment. We often can only treat 200 but the line has included up to 535 people in the past. Next year we hope to expand our capacity for the community treatment days.

From the newly formed NGO and TFT Foundation Kigali, Celestin Mitabu trained and treated many new people in Burundi.

We thank you all who have contributed to support these missions and the many others throughout 2014.

If you wish to learn the procedures they are learning in Africa, go to our trauma relief site as we have the protocol in 14 languages in video and print. The web site for this has changed to a new and easier URL, . Please share it with friends and family during this holiday season. Help us to serve as many as possible with this gift of healing.

The latest in TFT tapping

Most people come to TFT and try tapping because they want to be happier or improve their quality of life. They know that if they could reduce their stress, fears, anxiety, pain and many other negative emotions or conditions they could be happier, they could find their ideal mate, get a better job, or attract greater success into their lives.

We strive to help people and expand on the use of TFT, and have created classes that will guide you to the solution to a specific solution. Best of all, you can start the class immediately on purchase – and all are priced to be affordable.

One of our TFT Foundation board members, Mary Cowley, wrote a wonderful description for the documentary.

What is TFT Voice Technology?

What Is TFT Voice Technology and what will I be able to do with it?  How long will it take me to put it to work after I take the course?

I get asked these questions and others all of the time. So,I thought I would share something from two of our recent Optimal Health grads and one of our long time TFT-VT practitioners, Dr. Colin Barron.

Maria attended our recent course in Brazil and even sent us a YouTube video of her excitement. For those of us that don’t speak Portuguese, she kindly sent me the English translation.

Yolanda attended our Paris Optimal Health course and shares her first ever case, her infant daughter’s amazing recovery from being ill.

Then Dr. Colin Barron, a long-time TFT-VT practitioner and physician in Scotland, shares a complex OCD case. It is an example of how quickly and thoroughly one can use VT to address a complicated and previously recalcitrant problem, and how it holds up over time.

Today is the International Day of Peace


Tapping can help bring peace to our world.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The first Peace Day was observed in September 1982.

It is an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire. The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

Please join us at Callahan Techniques, and the TFT Foundations in sharing our documentary, From Trauma to Peace. It is due to be released at the end of the month. Help us to create greater awareness that there are powerful tools available to all of us to begin healing the trauma and violence in the world.
