Friday 23rd November marked the date of the official launch of the Mind Heart Connect Foundation in Melbourne. We were honoured so many chose to be with us and witness what’s possible with the meeting of hearts and minds.
Sincere thanks to our musicians, MC Carolyn for connecting all the threads, Kellie for your insightful Welcome to Country, Emma A for leading us with tapping and breathing,Tania for your professional narrative and reflection on the true essence of connection, Lori for your continual generosity of heart and Semeret for your courage and vulnerability in sharing your story with us.
It is through our supporters trust in the vision of the MHC Foundation we are able to progress with our education and training programs. We are pleased that in May 2019 Dr Lori Leyden and her volunteer team will return to the Kimberley Region, as a result of the overwhelming level of interest and positive outcomes this year. This return will offer two programs; 1) secondary training to our first group of health professionals, educators and service providers trained in EFT/Tapping for Trauma Relief & Resiliency and 2) deliver our second Professional Masterclass for their colleagues who were unable to attend initially.
Our vision for the Mind Heart Connect Foundation is to create resilient communities by bringing the most effective trauma healing tools, in the form of Evidence Based EFT/Emotional Freedom Techniques, to those who need it most in our Indigenous and Refugee people and the mental health professionals who serve them.
In using Evidence Based EFT as a powerful healing tool for stress and trauma, the Foundation fosters peacebuilding from the inside out for individual and community resiliency.
Evenings such as this are not possible without the support of our volunteers and sponsors. Jen & Christianne, Ellie our Youth Ambassador ‘Musellie’, Linger Cafe, Jellis Craig, Taprobane Tea Company & Nitty Gritty Graphics. Thank you!
