Recently I was sitting on a flight that was about to take off and there was a small child crying a few rows behind me. I decided to try a little surrogate tapping for the poor little guy who was having a bad morning.
The person sitting next to me said, “Oh, you do that tapping thing too?”
When something like this happens I always ask lots of questions because I’m curious to how people find their way to tapping. In most cases it is a family member, friend, or health care provider who has introduced it to them.
Because tapping has now been around for a while many people know how to use it, but don’t know much of its history.
Most people don’t know that modern form of tapping as we know it came about because of the pioneering work of Roger Callahan, PhD.
Roger passed away on November 4th at the age of 88. Here is a beautiful tribute written by his family.
I was particularly touched by Gary Craig’s reflection on Facebook:
I never met Roger, but was lucky enough to do an interview with his wife Joanne about Thought Field Therapy, which is the grandfather of the tapping most of us use.
I hope all of us are willing to be as bold as Roger was in sharing healing tools with the world.
