The Tapping Foundation Update

Written by: Nick Ortner

You might have heard me mention that Jessica is donating 100% of her royalties for the first 5,000 copies of her book to The Tapping Solution Foundation.

In case you’re not aware of what the Foundation does, I thought I’d share a moving audio interview from our 6th annual Tapping World Summit, with the director of the Foundation, Dr. Lori Leyden.

You can hear it here:

And if you’d like to pick up a copy of Jessica’s new book, you can do so here:

Until next time…

Keep Tapping! (and changing the world)

P.S.  A few months back my brother Alex shared a short story while we were chatting on Skype, and I kept it because it made my heart swell.

Here’s the conversation (Malakai is Alex’s 5-year-old son.)

[2/26/14, 8:36:37 PM] Alex Ortner: I said to Malakai today in the car…
[2/26/14, 8:36:55 PM] Alex Ortner: “I’m really proud that Ms. Carroll said that you’re really good at helping other kids.”
[2/26/14, 8:36:59 PM] Alex Ortner: And he said…
[2/26/14, 8:37:07 PM] Alex Ortner: “Like The Tapping Solution?”

Don’t you love it?!?  🙂

P.P.S.  I asked Dr. Leyden for the most recent breakthroughs that are taking place in the Foundation; here’s what she shared with me:


Thanks to our amazing volunteers, our commitment to provide community-based trauma relief and resiliency services here in Newtown continues, although there is still much work to be done.  Oftentimes, people who experience life traumas (haven’t we all?) prior to and subsequent to the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy find it more and more difficult to cope.

Many who have not sought somatic relief therapies such as EFT/Tapping are now experiencing Complex PTSD. We see a number of educators, students, and parents treated for anxiety and depression, while their PTSD remains undiagnosed.

Meanwhile, in just one to two sessions we are able to provide a level of relief that people have been unable to experience with traditional therapy.

As evidence of our growing acceptance in the community, we have just received a significant grant from the Newtown Sandy Hook Community Foundation which will allow us to educate the public and professionals about the effects of PTSD and appropriate treatments, as well as mentor licensed mental health professionals in EFT/Tapping for Trauma Mastery.

Other Foundation activities:

– One of our most exciting projects is our “EFT in the Classroom” program – see the video here:

You’ll be hearing more about this project in the coming weeks. If you are interested EFT/Tapping for schools in your community stay-tuned for our supporting materials.

– Dr. Leyden is currently mentoring a number of people using EFT in disaster relief around the world, including those in her home town responding to the University of Santa Barbara shooting tragedy.

– Dr. Leyden was also privileged to address physicians at the UC Davis “Integrative Health for Pain Management” Conference this past April, marking an important step forward in bringing EFT/Tapping into mainstream medicine.

– The Foundation is currently developing a pilot program with HealthCorps, Dr. Oz’s health and wellness initiative that has reached 66,000 high school students across the country.

– Huge thanks and gratitude to Margaret Lynch and her Ignite conference attendees who raised $34,000 for the Foundation.

    Hi my name is Jacqueline Ford, as I watched the video my mind reflected back on my accident with my son in 2009, who has a trache in his throat and not able to walk as yet. He is believing from the depths of his soul that one day he will get up and be able to walk again. I meditated about he video Tapping and would share it with my son. I think it is so AMAZING!!!!

    I just had said a prayer about my desire for a healed heart of love, joy, and peace for a new start where my gifts, learnings, experiences, and trainings can be used as a volunteer. Their was your email and video right in front of me–the next one to read. Tears flowed as I realized, I have not been honoring the depth of my heart’s deepest desire to make a deep difference within myself and othersas a volunteer, both for God as my career calling and for God in the world of volunteers.

    I am trained and continue being developed/refined for years as my soul signature, in grief and hospice work, many forms of kinesiology, trauma release work with Healing Codes, EFT, education–including two Nobel Prize winners work with me; I have served in Russia in the mass burial grounds with a representative from the pentagon, on and on. I have done years of volunteer work, led large volunteer organizations–Something is next! I am very healthy now at 71, work out, eat well on all levels, yet this part of my life is unfulfilled!!! If you are reading this and have an idea, please email me. I have been healed of four life threatening disease diagnoses by using the above–no medical as no money left at that time. Where can I be of service as who I am and the depth of my desire to use all of what has been done in me and through me. My work in some areas is in creating inner congruence that allows healing within the body/mind/systems of people with diagnoses that are threatening to their lives. I see I have been living way to small for a number of years being prepared for what is next, soon, and with grace and ease. Perhaps this will begin to bring it forward. THANK GOD FOR WHO YOU ALL ARE AND YOUR RESPONSE TO YOUR CALLING!!!!

    Hello to you Nick and to the team of the Tapping Solution Foundation,

    Even if Costa Rica is recognized for its legendary peaceful reputation and natural beauties, violence is still present in the school system. A study done in 2011 identified as causes of this “lack of discipline within families, communication problems, drug use, social inequality, changes in the values ​​of Costa Rican society, crime and poverty”. To bring EFT in the school system would be a BIG plus then.

    As Jeeva, from Australia, mentioned, is there an existing protocol/model from your organization that can be used to teach the EFT techniques to communities and schools and other interested people, or do I first need to obtain a qualification (I have been trained by Dr Kristin Holthuis in Costa Rica, level 1 and 2) to do so.

    Thank you for your answer and continue the great work you are all doing! Looking forward to hear more about this project.

    Decades ago Maharishi Mahesh Yogi said if TM could be taught to 100 students in each province/ state then the whole world would change for the better. He didn’t get into the schools. Glad you are… in the schools … and making a difference. Way to go! Kudos to your amazing family.

  6. Jeeva says:

    Good day, Nick

    The great work that you and Jessica are doing in helping people around the world with EFT is truly, truly admirable and wonderful. I am now living in Perth, Australia and have been practicing EFT for a number of years after having learned the techniques from various teachers, including you and Jessica (I have a copy of The Tapping Solution DVD which is a fantastic production).

    Nick, please advise me if I can teach the EFT techniques to communities and schools and other interested people in my area, or do I first need to obtain a qualification to do so.

    Thank you, and kind regards
