Illustrated with stories from the Talmud, Zen masters, and her own life as a therapist, she explains how this understanding can be applied in our own lives and with other people. An essential & poignant story from the life of Martin Buber leads to the discovery of the true meaning people are searching for in their lives. Brenda asks,
“What is the practice of true listening?” and discusses the experience of a Divine Encounter–the true meeting of two souls.
Rabbi Scott starts out talking about becoming a minister and all that entails, and then segues into discussing counseling and specifically addiction counseling, and his experience with it, the meaning of addiction, some approaches to it, and how he sees this in his practice.

Part 1 of Dr. Grayson’s explanation and demonstration of his methods and approaches begins with 2 handouts(see attached): one on “the Process of Awakening the to Self” and one on the “Vicious Interaction Cycle of the Ego.” He goes on to discuss and later demonstrate his adaptation of the method called EFT which he calls EFTA for it combines the “Emotional Freedom Technique” (EFT) which uses tapping on various parts of the body with Affirmations and other approaches all rolled into one.
Dr. Grayson continues to illuminate both the theory and practice of his methods, as well as demonstrating for the class with hands-on exercises we can all practice on our own. With stories and examples from the lives of his patients, students, and himself, his teaching is clear, calm, grounding, and engrossing. Ample time is also allowed for questions and answers from the audience. He also hands out a detailed sheet with instructions for using some of his EFTA techniques (See the handout attached). At the end, he also gives out one more handout which is a checklist for dealing with trauma by recognizing, ranking, and clearing various kinds of traumas that happen in a lifetime. A version of that form is on his website, and I have attached that one here. There are many other tools on his site as well.
