Calming the Nervous System: A Deeper Dive Into EFT/Tapping

May 19, 2023  |  1:30 - 3:00 PM EST

Workshop Description:

EFT/Tapping has gained more popularity in the past few years given its accessibility as a powerful self healing and nervous system regulation tool — it's healing literally at your fingertips. Join certified EFT practitioner, Maria Elena Pérez, in the second part of the Calming the Nervous System series, where we'll delve deeper into this powerful tool rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and the science behind it. More importantly, you'll learn how to tap for reducing stress and anxiety, as well as for deeper healing. This is an experiential learning lab with lots of opportunities to practice tapping in different ways.


Maria Elena Pérez (she/her/ella) is a bilingual, first-gen Latina that works with changemakers, leaders, caregivers and folks of service doing the most (you know, over-giving and over-functioning) to come back into right relationship with themselves. A self-proclaimed nervous system evangelist, Maria Elena worked for fifteen years in social and reproductive justice organizations before suffering a concussion and subsequent mysterious illnesses, which she healed through nervous system regulation and ancestral practices, after countless failed attempts with doctors and treatments. This journey led her deeper into EFT/tapping, polyvagal theory, and somatic internal family systems, all while coming back home to herself and reclaiming her ancestral gifts. Her work is a mix of science and bruja.
