2. Tapping and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE): Combining their Power
By Steve Wells
Last year I participated in Level 1 and Level 2 training workshops in TRE - Trauma and Tension Release Exercises, with Dr. David Berceli. TRE is a gentle process of initiating the body's own natural shaking / tremoring process to release trauma and tension that is held in the body deep in the muscles and cells. It was a fantastic experience for me, and after my first 3-day workshop with Berceli I felt more grounded and centred than I had for a very long time. I had released a great deal of tension from my body. Not only that, I felt more alert, less anxious, and much less reactive to life's problems. TRE is now up there with tapping as one of the key strategies I use and recommend for relieving emotional and physical stress.
Training in TRE reminded me of the crucial importance of the body in helping us to process what has happened to us - and in order to do this the material must be processed effectively - and also just how much tension we have stored in our muscles and cells about which we are not fully aware. This stress and tension is even now draining our life energy and preventing us from living our lives fully. I also realised the potential for expansion from clearing that tension, and accessing higher states, which we cannot access as long as our bodies are bound up by the tension of past traumatic experiences and the general stresses of living.
During the TRE workshops I experimented personally with combining tapping, as used in Simple Energy Techniques (SET) and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) with the tremoring process. I found that not only did tapping facilitate the release of tension and assist the movement of energy through the body, it also helped me to more effectively manage the emotional side of this work. Sometimes when doing the shaking it was possible to access pain or past emotional trauma and the tapping worked brilliantly in concert with the TRE to gently facilitate the release of these blocks, allowing the free flow of life energy throughout the body, the effective reprocessing of traumatic material, and the return of body and mind to a state of balance.
After completing the Level 2 TRE workshop I spoke with David Berceli and Level 3 TRE Trainer Richmond Heath about my ideas for seeking synergies between these techniques, and looking at ways of combining their healing powers in order to increase the benefit and leverage the results that each achieves. My main interest is in making the process of releasing tension and trauma more gentle, more complete, and more efficient for both those using these techniques to help others, and those seeking relief, self-development and personal growth.
David and Richmond were open to the possibilities of looking at a combined workshop and this workshop with Richmond Heath will be our first exploration of how they can be used together. Yes, it will be exploratory. Those who attend will be helping us to learn how we can extend the results of both these brilliant approaches and how best to do this. If you attend you will be right at the cutting edge of exploring new potentials with these techniques.
This workshop will draw together those who are seekers of new ways of gaining and providing effective relief and release to emotional suffering and allowing life energy to flow.
This will firstly be an empowering weekend of releasing on the emotional, physical and energetic levels using what we already know about using these techniques. It will also be focused on finding new ways to encourage our energies to flow more easily, and releasing stuck emotional and physical and mental states. We'll explore the possibility of leveraging results through combining two very effective approaches within an atmosphere of warmth, fun, good connection and great group energy.
This is an unique opportunity to be one of the first to explore these new potentials in energy work. I am looking forward to it with excitement and anticipation and I hope to see you there.
