Nick Ortner: Tap your way to freedom
"Your goals, dreams and aspirations: if you're not achieving them, then at some level they are connected to a fight or flight response." Hear the fascinating theory behind how tapping works from Nick Ortner, who breaks it down for the Wanderlust Speakeasy crowd in Stratton, VT with a sense of humour and compassion.
"These days," says Nick, "we are activating our fight or flight responses in a variety of circumstances. Frustrated goals, mounting stress, patterns of self-sabotage: at the most basic level are stress responses related to fight or flight responses. The latest research shows us that when we hit these meridian points in the body while focusing on certain issues, we are actually sending a signal to the amydgala in the brain. The amygdala is the fight or flight response center." In this Speakeasy lecture, Nick explains how tapping (or, EFT: Emotional Freedom Techniques) can release these fears and patterns.
Nick Ortner is the producer of the documentary film, "The Tapping Solution." Nick is a "searcher,"constantly reading, exploring and experimenting with the incredible information all around that can change lives. When he found EFT Tapping, and was startled by the results, he knew he had to find a way to get this information into the mainstream. He produced "The Tapping Solution," a best-selling documentary film that features 10 people overcoming enormous challenges by using EFT Tapping. The film features experts like Jack Canfield, Bruce Lipton, Joe Vitale, Bob Proctor, Cheryl Richardson, Dr. Joe Mercola and more. He also produced the worldwide online event "The Tapping World Summit," which has been attended by over 500,000 people in the past four years (all for free!) and manages the monthly membership program, the "Tapping Insiders Club." He has produced and coordinated other project s on health and wellness, such as David Wolfe's "21 Days to Health" program, and is an owner and managing director of another documentary, "Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days."
Nick and the Tapping Solution team are committed to spreading Tapping throughout the world and particularly to supporting its revolutionary and world-changing usage. They've raised over $250,000 for Tapping related charities such as work being done with genocide victims in Rwanda, veterans with PTSD, and women with cancer. Nick lives in Newton, CT, and has recently taken his EFT techniques to help heal the community that was rocked by the devastation at Sandy Hook Elementary in Dec 2012.

Wanderlust Festival is also indebted to Hay House who helped us realize the entire 2012 Speakeasy Lecture Series across all four festivals (Stratton, VT in June 2012; Copper Mountain, CO in July; Squaw Valley, CA in late July; and Whistler, BC, Canada in August). With Hay House's amazing roster of speakers (which you can witness in person at their incredible "I Can Do It" events), it's no wonder that they helped elevate the conversation at Wanderlust's Speakeasy this summer. We encourage you to stay tuned to the Hay House FB feed to make sure you know the next time one of their authors is speaking near you.
