What people are saying about Dawson Church and his workshops:
The demonstrations were very helpful and the presentations were amazing, especially useful in constructing the dialog necessary to be effective with EFT. These instructors know their EFT backwards and forwards, as well as how to work effectively with an audience. EFT Universe has talented, great teachers, who are also very caring.
— Donna Bilt
Dawson’s ‘Body Trigger’ cards and techniques for relieving tension continue to be helpful and the info about neurology added a dimension lacking in workshops with other daily facilitators. I would recommend without reservation, any workshop led by Dawson.
