Sunday Feb 19th - 1:00 PM
with Rev Kathy Kerston
Kathy will discuss how astrology and Human Design can help you personalize your tapping sessions. Research is showing EFT is affecting what your genes are directing your brain and body to do as you are tapping and even after you stop tapping.  A new study recently documents gene expression alters immediately after a fifty-minute session of EFT. Just a few of the epigenetically altered gene functions include:

 -Inflammation and immune response 
 -Regulation of stress response
 -Tumor suppression
 -Enhancement of synaptic connectivity
 -Male fertility
 -UV damage prevention
 -Insulin regulation
