TappingStar was created to encourage the use of tapping* and other meridian tapping techniques (MTT) in schools and other group settings. The founders of TappingStar are committed to educating the public, as well as education professionals, about the benefits of providing all students with these basic life skills. Since then, we've added more subjects to serve not only children, but those who work with them, serve them or raise them. It's our Intention to provide the best information and techniques out there, to raise happy, healthy, empowered children who can change the world.
Towards that end, each month we present the innovators, authors and experts at work in the world today, to you, and encourage you to pass this life-affirming information on to others. It's our way to Pay It Forward, and we hope you'll not only be inspired,but that you'll join us in this movement and mission.
TappingStar associates and affiliates conduct introductory and advanced presentations and workshops to the public, provide in-service education and training to educators and create and conduct customized "tap-in" programs for schools and school districts.
TappingStar's goal in the 2011-2012 school year is to reach 100 classrooms in New York City and in the United States. By 2012-2013, the goal is for fifty percent of NYC classrooms to use tapping and for 20 percent of U.S. classrooms to use tapping. Also in 2012-2013, associates and affiliates expect to reach 10,000 classrooms globally.
We enlist your support in reaching these goals. Download handouts, join as an affiliate and use curriculum guides and marketing materials. TappingStar support is readily available.
We ask that you provide success stories and statistical evidence to us about how tapping has worked in your schools and classrooms. Let us know locations of classrooms that are using tapping.
*Tapping dissolves stress, tension and anxiety, as well as balances personal energy so students can stay focused on learning. The method is safe, fast and effective. Students learn to use a do-it-yourself approach for managing their stress, that works in less than a minute, and is completely drug-free.
