I was lucky enough to be invited to be part of the Empowering The Philippines mission to the City of Tacloban and the surrounding area.
This part of the Philippines was hit the hardest by Super Typhoon Haiyan (called Yolanda in the Philippines).
Haiya was one of the strongest typhoons on record and released most of its force on the Philippines on November 7th and 8th, 2013, with top wind speeds reaching 195 mph.
The goal of the mission was to work with local people to help them to deal with their continuing trauma and to teach local professionals to use tapping in their work in the community.
My friend Helen McConnell (bio below) interviewed me about the work we did, my experience, and what we can all learn from this type of work.
This was not a one-off experience. Much of the work we did was towards establishing an infrastructure to allow more people to learn tapping. We also had the opportunity to train people working with UNICEF and the Red Cross.
More trips are planned and more work is in progress. You can still contribute to this work.
I also wrote every day while in the Philippines. You can read more reflections and my in the moment response on my personal blog
