Every creation begins as a thought—from a symphony to a marriage to an ice cream cone. When we have an intention, a complex chain of events begins in our brains. Intentions and the energy we cultivate determine the nature of our material reality. If you’ve wondered how you can create your ideal life, discover what science now shows your mind can do.
Join Dawson Church, author of Mind to Matter, for a romp through the science of turning your thoughts to things. Learn ways to use your mind to create bliss neurotransmitters in your brain, anti-aging hormones in your body, and even change molecules in the physical world. Practice seven methods to generate the brainwave frequencies that result in “coherent mind”—the signature pattern of “master manifesters,” people who create effortlessly.
You also interact with new technologies that demonstrate how quickly matter responds to thought, and hear inspiring stories about how people have used these methods to transform health, wealth, relationships, and more.
Below you will find important instructions for the program. Please read them over carefully as it includes information on how to prepare for the course.
Please also review the following release forms that must be completed and brought with you to the first session.
Prior to the Workshop (things to bring):
- Please print these Release Forms and bring your completed forms with you to the workshop.
- Bring a personal journal with you. There are periods during which you’ll be asked to reflect on, and write down, your experiences.
- In your journal, please write a list of at least 5 of the minor annoyances in your life. Examples of experiences that annoy people are waiting in line, being stuck in traffic, certain things that family members say, meetings at work, and political debates.
- Also write a list of at least 5 major life goals you’d like to manifest. Make these clear, concrete and detailed. A vague description is “Get a promotion.” A detailed description is, “I now see myself sitting in a beautifully decorated corner office with floor-to-ceiling glass windows with the person who is now my boss reporting to me.”
- The first day, please arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the workshop to register, check in and get settled. We start each session exactly on time and ask that you be in your seat a couple of minutes early.
- When you arrive, turn in the Release Forms you printed and filled out before the event.
- We may have Emotional Assistants (EAs) for this workshop that perform a variety of duties to make the workshop run smoothly and ensure all participants are attended to as needed.
- The demonstrations on the stage in Dawson’s workshops are usually video taped, and posted on the EFT Universe web site as “tap alongs” that allow other people to benefit from the session. If you prefer not to be videotaped, don’t volunteer for a session on stage, instead, tap along in the audience. This technique, called “Borrowing Benefits,” has been shown in studies to be very effective.
- The staff often takes photos of people in the workshop to post on the EFT Universe Facebook page. If you’d prefer not to be photographed, let the staff at the front table during registration know this.
- There are healthy snacks and water in the Dining Hall and available for purchase in the Café and you are welcome to bring them with you to consume on breaks. Please drink plenty of water during the workshops, especially during the sessions to avoid dehydration.
- There are three breaks: 15 minutes mid-morning, 2 ½ hours for lunch, and another 15 minute break mid-afternoon. Get outside during the breaks, use them to relax and recharge.
- The workshops are presented as 4 modules each day, 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon.
- Each workshop includes practical exercises, meditations, practice sessions and feedback.
- There is typically a Q&A session after each lecture. If questions occur to you during the lecture, write them down and ask them during the Q&A period. The reason for this is that many questions will be answered later in the lecture, and to avoid interrupting the flow of the lecture, we hold Q&A till the end.
Workshop Participation and Interaction:
The trainer and Emotional Assistants (EAs) (if available for this event) are there to answer most logistical questions or issues (where are the bathrooms, the room is too cold, we need more water, etc.) and to provide assistance to those who may have a profound emotional reaction during a practice session. If you’re feeling emotionally overwhelmed, please let an EA know.
- Confidentiality. We ask that you not describe anyone’s session to anyone else outside this room in such a way that might identify them personally.
- If you have a question during a lecture, make a note and ask it afterwards, since your question might be answered later in the lecture.
- If you have a question about the instructions for any exercise, make sure you ask it before the exercise begins.
