EFT Master Practitioner
Event on 2017-01-13 10:00:00
Are you ready to increase your skill set? Are you happy just doing what you do, or would you like to take it to the next level? Here's an option for you.   This 3 day advanced course is the new and updated EFT Certification from Silvia Hartmann and is the result of 14 years working and researching with EFT and Energy Work. It represents a paradigm shift in how EFT is taught and used. A previous knowledge of basic EFT is a requirement for this course; it is also suitable for any existing practitioners who wish to update their skills and learn this new and exciting way to use EFT.   The course is structured over 12 modules to take you through from the novice to advance in an easy and understandable way so that each module builds on the skills learnt in the previous ones. There are 45 key core skills to be mastered before you can be certified and all 12 modules must be taken. Certification is by continuous assessment during the workshops, but you may be asked to complete additional work if you do not reach the required standard during the workshop. ? Your course fee includes a very comprehensive manual which will act as a reference in the future, one year's professional membership with The AMT, certification, and three months email/telephone support (value of 00 plus). ? Course syllabus   Day 1- Basic Level 1.    Discovering EFT 2.    Reversing Energy Body Stress 3.    The EFT Story 4.    The Professional EFT Practitioner ? Day 2 Intermediate Level 1.    Extremely Focused Treatments 2.    Working with Aspects 3.    Energy and Emotions 4.    Energy System Events   Day 3- Advanced Level 1.    Mind Changes 2.    Energetic Relationships 3.    Autogenic Reality 4.    The EFT Master   What is this EFT Master Practitioner Training About?  The core to what is in essence a paradigm shift lies in the understanding that EFT is not psychology, no more than it is physiology; EFT is a 3rd Field modality in the mind, body, spirit triad and currently the primary method for working directly with the human energy system.  By understanding that EFT doesn't work with problems, words, symptoms, memories, illnesses etc. etc. but instead with improving the flow of energy through the energy body, much more logical, clearly focused, specific and precise methods of applying EFT have come to light.  This brings about many benefits for practitioners in EFT as well as for self-help treatments, and these include: ? · A clear and cohesive theory on how EFT works and how and why EFT is to be applied; · A tremendous reduction in client AND practitioner stress across the board, leading to: · More elegant, gentle and powerful EFT treatments; · Faster results by targeting EFT interventions more precisely; · Better and deeper rapport between EFT practitioner and client (the EFTeam); · Better experiences for both EFT practitioner and client across the board;  · Alleviation of problems including set up confusion and the Apex effect; · A whole array of brand new techniques, methods and approaches to applying EFT.   The challenge for the professional EFT practitioner is and has always been that they can expect to encounter literally any type of problem a human being can have in their practice.  It is therefore structurally impossible to create "EFT scripts" for every conceivable potential problem, as would be the case in the "over 200 separately named phobias" as exists in psychology today.  Likewise, it is structurally impossible to teach students of EFT who wish to become confident and effective practitioners "scripts" for all the infinite potential problems a future client might bring to them.  It was therefore decided to focus on structure, rather than on content, and to make sure that students on the AMT EFT Master Practitioner training are proficient in the use of EFT as a structural tool to deal with energy system damage across the board.   There are certain global principles that apply to all energy work, regardless of how the presenting problem in the energy body has come into existence, which if understood, unlock the power of EFT to help people with their problems in a whole new way.   These global principles include amongst others: · The understanding how to conduct real energy work with a client which demands in the context of EFT that the client and practitioner work together as equals and without energetic shields and barriers which may be found in the common conduct of the other two fields; · The understanding that the effectiveness of the treatment is based on the performance of both practitioner AND client; · How to de-stress clients, teach clients about EFT and how to learn to "read clients" correctly; · How to interpret the client's appearance, state and words in order to formulate good set up statements in direct consultation with the client; · How to focus on energy body disturbances, and how to target highly specific and relevant set up statements for the EFT treatments; · How to understand the general treatment flow, the concept of energy body evolution and the healing events which are unique to energy work; · How to conduct a professional, caring relationship with a client from start to finish; · How to continue to improve the practitioner's skill, understanding and intuition with every client they experience; · And the relevancy of clients in the context of the practitioner's own personal evolution.   Taking this highly structural, essential content free approach will give the successful students exactly the tools they need to be able to confidently conduct excellent (masterful) EFT treatments regardless of the presenting problems. By applying this highly structural and specific approach to ALL the examples and practice treatments throughout the course, the student learns the structure – and their clients will fill in the content.   This allows the successful student to be able to focus all their attention on the client, without being side tracked, disturbed, upset, stressed or worried trying to match this one client's symptoms and experiences to any other client, or any script. In essence, the client will therefore experience a highly individual and personalized approach to their unique problems. Each client gains their own unique EFT script which they write together with the practitioner on this unique occasion – which is no less than any client deserves.   The practitioner is supported throughout their client treatments by the veracity of the structure, having understood how to do EFT well. This sets the practitioner free to really engage with the client in a stress free, very focused manner and to enjoy helping people feel better in a whole new way.   The most important advancement in the last 15 years is not the plethora of techniques and approaches which have come about. The most important advancement which is reflected throughout this course is the understanding that we are working with energy.  A soon as this is understood and enacted, confusion recedes.   The practice of EFT comes down to removing blockages and injuries from the energy system, and improving the flow of energy in the client's body as best we can on all occasions and regardless of what the presenting problems might have labeled as in the past.   This simple principle is reflected in removing blockages from the EFT treatment flow and conducting sessions that are elegant, logical, stress free, focused correctly and therefore, very powerful.  The same simple principle is in action as blockages which disturb the relationship between client and practitioner are removed so that they may communicate powerfully and freely. Finally, knowing that we are working with energy places the practitioner of EFT firmly into the 3rd Field in the mind, body, spirit triad.   This ends all manner of conflict and confusion; it ends competition with the other two fields, psychology and physiology respectively. It allows us to develop our own specific 3rd Field appropriate instruments, research directions, methods, techniques, conduct and methodology.  To understand that a professional EFT practitioner is in fact, an Energist, helps the practitioner explain to themselves and others who they are, where they stand, what they do, and what services they can provide.   From this naturally flows a clear understanding of an ethical code of conduct for 3rd Field practitioners. Energists are not miracle workers. They are not "alternative" but an integral and highly necessary part of providing services for the citizens of our societies which no-one else provides presently. As such, modern EFT practitioners can clearly represent a new and additional view point to existing problems which have not been solved through the other two fields alone. ? By taking their rightful place as the practitioners of the 3rd Field in the mind, body, spirit triad, EFT practitioners can go forward to define their place in the service of the community, which at this time includes educating their communities about their very existence in the first place.  Modern energy work is logical, specific, and when applied to the energy body, can bring about changes that have never been available before. This is very exciting; and the new AMT EFT Master Practitioner certification is the first step towards the new generation of energists, who know exactly who they are, what services they provide and who are extremely proud to be amongst the first to put the long missing 3rd Field into its rightful place, as an ESSENTIAL service that needs to be provided for ALL human beings in the world today.   In Conclusion  The AMT Certification Trainings represent a thorough and most importantly, cross-contextual grounding in working with Meridian Energy Therapies at the professional level.   The AMT Certification Trainings have no equal and are recognized around the World as being the most thorough and comprehensive training available in the MET`s.  Completion of the all-important, EFT Master Practitioner certification enables the successful participants to become a full member of the Association for Meridian Energy Therapies with all benefits and rewards this entails. ? Pre-registration is required. Minimum of 4 students required for each class. 0 non-refundable deposit secures your place up to 1 week prior to training. The full course fees are due 48 hours before the workshop. ? Training times: 10:00 am-5.00 pm per day for 3 consecutive days Course Fee: 0.00

Sly n Robbie

Sly and Robbie are one of reggae’s most prolific and long lasting production teams. The rhythm section of drummer Lowell Dunbar (nicknamed Sly after Sly Stone, one of his favorite musicians) and bass guitarist Robert Shakespeare started working together in the mid 1970s, after having established themselves separately on the Jamaican music scene. They are humorously also sometimes referred to as Sly Drumbar and Robbie Basspeare, one example being the sleeve notes of Black Uhuru’s Red album.
Sly and Robbie may well be the most prolific recording artists ever. One estimate is that they have played on or produced some 200,000 songs,[1] considering that some of their riddims such as "Revolution" have been used on over 100 songs.
Before joining forces, Sly was drumming for the Skin Flesh and Bones band and Robbie was the bass player for the Aggrovators. They also used to play in clubs (Sly at Tit for Tat and Robbie at Evil People), and used to check each other out. They found out that they had the same ideas about music in general (both are huge fans of Motown, Stax Records, the Philly Sound and Country & Western, in addition to Jamaican legendary labels Studio One and Treasure Isle), and Reggae production in particular. They first worked together with The Revolutionaries for the newly created Channel One studio and label, operated by the Hoo Kim brothers.
According to The Independent, their breakthrough album was The Mighty Diamonds’ 1976 release Right Time, which helped to establish them as the "masters of groove and propulsion.[2] The drum beat on the title song was particularly tricky; in 2001 Dunbar recalled that it evoked both skepticism and imitation: "When that tune first come out, because of that double tap on the rim nobody believe it was me on the drums, they thought it was some sort of sound effect we was using. Then when it go to number 1 and stay there, everybody started trying for that style and it soon become established."[3
Sly Dunbar, 1979
The duo changed the face of reggae several times: in 1976, they introduced a harder beat called "Rockers", which quickly replaced the then prevalent "One drop" style, then introduced the "rub a dub" sound in the early 1980s. Sly and Robbie were important in developing the trend towards computer assisted music and programming in the mid 1980s. Chris Blackwell made them the core of the Compass Point All Stars, the Nassau (Bahamas) recording band based at Compass Point Studios that was to produce classic records for Grace Jones, Joe Cocker and Gwen Guthrie among many others. They had a number 12 hit on the UK Singles Chart in 1987 with "Boops (Here to Go)".
Robbie Shakespeare (right) playing with Peter Tosh on the Bush Doctor tour, 1978
In the early 1990s they introduced a novel sound with the hits "Bam Bam" and "Murder She Wrote" by Chaka Demus & Pliers. Chaka Demus’ rough DJ vocals were matched with Pliers’ sweet, melodic, soul-influenced singing; this unusual vocal pairing was championed by Sly and Robbie. This formula has since been used with great success by the likes of Shaggy (who teamed up with singers Rayvon or Rik Rok), Shabba Ranks, Maxi Priest and others. This predates and may have influenced the recent trend in some rap music where a song’s "hook" or chorus is sung by a guest, while the verses are rapped.
In the "Bam Bam" style, Sly introduced Indian tabla sounds in his drum beats, while Robbie altogether stopped playing bass on this particular project.
Sly & Robbie continued to innovate during the 1990s and early 2000s, fusing Dancehall and Latin music sounds (La Trenggae) or Dancehall and hip hop/R&B (their 2004 Big Up riddim). They had a second UK top 40 hit in 1997, with the collaboration with Simply Red on a cover of Gregory Isaacs’ "Night Nurse", reaching number 13. In 1999, their "Strip to the Bone" album paired them with electro producer Howie B, and together they explored new dub territories. Their 1999 single "Superthruster" from this album became a mainstream hit by being played on MTV frequently. Reason for this was undoubtedly not only the pulsing beat but the high quality animated video in sinister Anime style. It showed Sly and Robbie in battlesuits chasing a Harlequin through a technological complex. As the video progresses, the harlequin turns out to be a marionette directed by the real villain. The early scene involving the Harlequin marionette bears at least a passing resemblance to Sven Väth’s 1994 animated cult-video "Harlequin". "Superthruster" was released on vinyl and as a DVD single, its February 9, 1999 release date making it one of or even the first DVD single ever to go on sale.
In 2003 they compiled and mixed a DJ mix album, Late Night Tales: Sly & Robbie, as part of the Late Night Tales series for Azuli Records.
Far from restricting themselves to the Jamaican scene, (in which they have played for virtually every prominent Jamaican musical artist from Beenie Man to Sean Paul to Peter Tosh, Black Uhuru, Gregory Isaacs Dennis Brown and others), they have been one of pop music’s most sought after rhythm sections, playing for and producing superstars such as Ben Harper, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones, Grace Jones, Joan Armatrading, Gilberto Gil, Joe Cocker, Matisyahu, Serge Gainsbourg, Simply Red, Michael Franti, Sting, Khaled, Mey Vidal, Tricky, Doug E. Fresh, Carlos Santana, Sinéad O’Connor, and many more.
They have produced No Doubt’s hits "Hey Baby" and "Underneath It All". They also produced some tracks off Suggs first album The Lone Ranger including the hit version of "Cecilia" featuring Louchie Lou & Michie One which sold over 500,000 copies in the UK alone.
After 30 years together, they still tour and record relentlessly. In early 2005, they toured with Tony Rebel and Half Pint. During the Summer of 2005, they toured Europe and the UK with Bunny Rugs, lead singer for Third World. During the Fall of 2005 they were on the road with Sinéad O’Connor in August 2006, they appeared with Don Carlos at the Reggae on the River Festival, and in August 2007 they performed on a tour of the Western United States and Canada along with Dancehall-soul singer and actress Cherine Anderson, including headlining Reggae Rising in Humboldt County and The Hollywood Bowl.
They have produced several new Jamaican artists for their Taxi label, including Kibaki, Mynimoo and Zennlocc, as well as confirmed superstars such as Elephant Man and Buju Banton, for whom they re-used their 1982 instrumental mega-hit "Unmetered Taxi". In 2006, they recorded with their original group, the Revolutionaries, to produce Horace Andy’s new album "Livin’ it up" and produced several hits for Cherine Anderson. In the 2007, they cooperated with the Italian rapper Jovanotti in the album Safari, they also produced tracks for Beatles founder Paul McCartney and Britney Spears. In 2008, Sly and Robbie collaborated with the Ecuadorian singer-songwriter Cecilia Villar Eljuri,[4] on her song "El Aire". Sung in Spanish, the song quickly charted on Worldbeat and Latin Alternative radio.
In 2009, Movin’ On, the new album by Bitty McLean, which they produced with Bitty and their longtime friend and associate Guillaume Bougard, came out and was immediately acclaimed as the best Reggae album of the year. They toured Japan, Morocco (Mawazine festival) and Europe with Bitty to showcase the album. A DVD of the Paris concert is being prepared for release in 2010.
Sly & Robbie produced four songs on on Cherine Anderson’s EP " The Introduction-Dubstyle". The second single "Shine On Jamaica" , which was produced by the duo peaked at # 1 for four weeks on both the South Florida Reggae charts as well as the WAVS 1170 Reggae Charts. Earlier singles "Kingston State of Mind" , which was also produced by the duo was eventually retired from MTV Tempo’s video charts and is still rotated on sound systems and radio today.
More recently, they have produced Michael Franti’s "Hey World" album, which includes the single "Say Hey", which has climbed to the top of the Billboard pop charts.
