How EFT Tapping Creates Balance In Your Energy System With Brad Yates

Brad Yates is known internationally for his creative and often humorous use of Emotional Freedom Techniques known as EFT. Brad is the author of the bestselling children’s book The Wizard’s Wish. He’s also the co-author of the bestseller Freedom at Your Fingertips. He’s a featured expert in the film The Tapping Solution.

Brad, thank you so much for joining us here.

I’m happy to be here. Thank you for having me.

I was hoping you can start us off by telling us a little bit about how you got into the work you do and what drives your passion for it.

I always knew I would be doing this work. I started out as an actor. I had traveled the world doing theater and then decided it’s time to go be a movie star in Hollywood. While I was there, I met a woman, fell in love and got married. When our first child was on the way, I started thinking it might be good to have a backup job to help bridge this family. I had always been fascinated by the power of the mind so I trained to become a hypnotherapist. I started building a hypnotherapy practice along with my acting career.

After a couple of years, our second child was on the way. I thought doing this personal development work feels like my calling. This is what feels great. This is where I feel my talents are best used. We packed up, left Los Angeles and moved to Northern California to be closer to our families. In this process, through some other hypnotherapists, I heard about this energy therapy and this tapping process. I thought, “That sounds interesting. I’ll give it a try.” I went to this conference and took a course with Gary Craig, the Founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT.

I fell in love with his technique especially when he had his tapping on chocolate cravings as a demonstration. I was a bit of a chocoholic at the time. I went from an 8 or 9 out of a scale of 1 to 10 craving to not being able to eat chocolate for two years in a matter of minutes. I thought, “That’s interesting.” After that conference, I started integrating the tapping into my hypnotherapy sessions. Little by little, they became tapping sessions.

YouTube came along and I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a tapping video that people could start their day with? I’ll call it Tap O’ the Mornin’.” It was all I intended to do on YouTube. I’ve got a tapping video on YouTube and it was about six months later before I put up my second video. Another month or so before this third one and here we are with over 1,000 videos on YouTube.

Which is how most people I would imagine find out about you.

It was trying to make tapping this simple technique for down-regulating stress, help us shift our mindset and create better outcomes. I wanted to make that as available to people as possible. Creating these short videos on different subjects that people could easily share with other people and say, “This looks a little weird but try it. You’ll feel better.”

The way most people find you is people like me say, “Go listen to Brad on YouTube. I don’t have as many YouTube videos. You can follow along with Brad while he’s showing you how to tap on the video. You can get good results.” What other things other than the YouTube videos do you do?

Once upon a time, I did live in events. I did my first live event in Ohio. It’s the first one I’ve done because traveled around the world and do live events, which fulfills that actor inside of me having a live event there. I do private sessions and group workshops online.

Tapping is a simple technique for down-regulating stress and helping us shift our mindset and create better outcomes.

Are the live events something in line with what you encountered when you went to Gary Craig’s live events?

He was more of teaching the process. For me, it’s more a matter of guiding people through it. I get suggestions from folks in the audience as to, “What stops you from being the best version of yourself? What stops you from having what want to have and taking the actions you want to take?” We look at those limiting beliefs and those fears of, “I’m not good enough. I don’t have what it takes. I’m afraid of people judging me,” which all come up as stress in the body and stop us from moving forward. We go through the simple process of examining those thoughts and beliefs. We’re tapping, calming down the stress response and being able to say, “That’s not such a big deal. I don’t have to be so afraid of that. People are going to judge me anyway. I might as well go out and have fun.”

When the EFT tapping was first put out there, it had to do with knowledge of the acupuncture meridians. It’s a way to give yourself an acupressure treatment for anything that bothers you physically, mentally or emotionally. Are you still presenting it that way? Do you talk about the acupuncture meridians or do you just talk about relieving the stress response?

When I first introduced EFT, particularly in interviews, I will often say it started based on acupuncture saying that, “For thousands of years in Chinese medicine, there’s a flow of energy through the body along these pathways called meridians. When the energy is flowing naturally, we experienced our natural state of well-being physically and emotionally. When this energy gets stuck then we don’t feel so good.” In traditional acupuncture, the doctor would stick needles in these key points. We’re tapping with these key points.

Roger Callahan, who started this process, had Thought Field Therapy, which Gary then turned it into Emotional Freedom Technique. Dr. Callahan was studying acupressure and was learning about these different meridian points and helped a woman with her water phobia. She said that the physical manifestation of her phobia was not in her stomach. He said, “I have learned that one of the key points for the stomach meridian is right here under the eye. Let’s see what happens if we tap right there.” Not only did the life-long water phobia went away.

That’s one of those one-minute wonders that we don’t see very often but it was enough for him to say, “This is interesting.” He starts experimenting with different patients and found that by tapping different points based on different meridians, he would choose different algorithms for different issues. Gary came along. His background is he had a degree in Engineering. He’s thinking, “Let’s see if we can simplify this. There are eight points that we’re tapping. Rather than trying to figure out which 2 or 3 points to tap in which order, what if we tap all of the points in one row and get the same great benefits?”

We have modern research showing that downregulates cortisol, the stress hormone in our body, there is evidence showing that it affects the vagus nerve so we’re affecting the polyvagal system to downregulate stress and other uncomfortable emotions. The exact mechanism of how this is working whether it is a meridian system, calming down the amygdala and the fight or flight process, there isn’t one set answer on that. We just know it works.

The thing that I greatly appreciated about Gary Craig’s work back when it first came out was that he put this 80-page PDF on the internet for free. Download it, read it and start tapping. You’re going to get a certain amount of success right there. I would tell people, “Generally speaking, based on your willingness and how many traumas are held within you. If you have a trauma held within you and you’re fearful to look at it, you may not be able to get through it on your own with the tapping so if you have a coach or a therapist that’s willing to support you in this.”

That was the thing that threw the doors wide open. I was so appreciative that he did that. He made a whole series of DVDs available for people if they wanted to do training and get more of this theory. Most of the ones that I got were the videos of him doing his seminars. I had already been trained in a mind-body energy technique that you say acupuncture meridians but it required muscle testing applied kinesiology to determine which meridian was disrupted, which emotional meridian and which dynamic in your life.

I was doing it with a seventeen-year-old male, which is pretty impressive. He will let me do this weird muscle testing thing with him. He had a few sessions. He came in one day and said, “I liked this and it’s helping me a lot but my grandfather says I can get this stuff free off the internet. I don’t need that dumb old psychologist.” I got the website and looked it up. When he came in the next time, I said, “Tell your grandfather he’s right. This is exactly the same material.”

From that point on, I began teaching EFT to every one of my patients who would learn it. I still teach EFT. It was about a ten-year stretch where I would teach it 2 or 3 times a year at a fairly local place and make an all-day seminar so people could do the 9:00 to 4:00 and pick up some CEUs but get well-versed in how it feels to shift their energy and create some kind of a mental structure so they’d have some format for teaching it to others and using it with their clients. I wonder if there’s a story or two, not just what Gary did or what happened with TFT but either you personally have benefited from the use of EFT or one of the many people you’ve worked with has?

OYM Brad | EFT Tapping

EFT Tapping: We just go through the simple process of examining those thoughts and beliefs.

My life is amazingly different since I started tapping, the ability to put myself out there and have personal success as well as make a bigger difference than I ever could have made before. I had the privilege of working with folks in so many different areas and with so many different issues. One of my favorite stories was about a woman whose ex-husband had done something unfortunate. They were no longer married but still thinking about it was distressing. In a matter of 15, 20 minutes, she was laughing about it. This thing that had been so upsetting for twenty years is no longer an issue.

I worked with people with money issues. I used to have a client that I worked with regularly who had a small office with a number of employees. She said, “Every so often, my staff will say, ‘Every time you work with Brad, we all make more money. Set up another session’” The general abundance vibe in the office would shift.

Working with physical issues, I was at a health fair once and somebody come over. They were experiencing some back trouble. He said, “It’s like an 8 out of 10 in terms of how painful it was.” We did some quick tapping. They moved around and said, “That feels better.” A couple of hours later, they came back and said, “I don’t know if you know this but there’s a dance floor over in part of this fair. We’ve been over there dancing. What the heck did you do?”

It’s amazingly beneficial in so many areas. I know that sometimes people go, “It sounds like a panacea.” That’s always threatening. When we think of it as a stress relief technique and we recognize that stress either causes or worsens most, if not all of the issues that trouble us then we can see why having a stress tool like this can help us in so many different areas.

Do you know the work of Dr. John Sarno?

His book helped me a lot of years ago.

He created this phrase Tension Myoneural Syndrome. His thought is that these people that were coming to him had actual physical pain but there wasn’t anything on their scans that was different than all kinds of people who didn’t have any restriction of motion or physical pain. He discovered that if you reduce the oxygen flow to tissue by as little as 10%, it’s enough to initiate excruciating pain.

If we lodge our mental, emotional stress, let’s say here in the shoulder and there’s a bundle of muscles or nerves there that are carrying my energetic stress, it’s enough to keep me from moving my arm very much. I had a similar situation where I was doing an intro session. I’m going to be here for 45 minutes. I’ve got eleven people in a circle and I’m teaching them EFT tapping. I talked about it a little bit. Then we did a round of tapping. All of a sudden, this woman went like this, “I can move my arm.” I said, “That’s good.” She says, “You don’t get it. I haven’t been able to move my arm past here for eleven years.”

Is that a miracle cure? No but it makes sense if you think about the tension myoneural syndrome, if I’m holding either a fear of moving my arm or a rage at someone here. Every time I move, it pinches and stabs. It’s like the kind of muscle cramping that happens that lays NFL players out on the field. It makes good sense that I can’t move my arm very much.

I do a round or two of tapping thinking about that. The stress gets relieved and ll of a sudden, I have full range of motion in my arm. I appreciate that combination of Dr. Sarno’s work and this, which helps people understand. This isn’t just a distraction. This isn’t just voodoo. This is an energy system we’re sitting herein. If we are not letting the energies be and flow through us and working to their optimal, it creates difficulties for us.

We are so unaware of how much stress we’re carrying. There’s always at least some ambient stress, particularly because we’re walking around with a stress device. We have this device that is constantly telling us, “Here’s something else to be upset about.” We ignore that. I recommend to folks that they tap on a daily basis because to me, it’s energy hygiene. We have physical hygiene like brushing our teeth and taking a shower. We do it whether we feel we need it or not.

Negative thoughts come up as stress in the body and stop us from moving forward.

We don’t wait for three weeks. No one everyone’s holding their nose around us that’s going, “Try to take a shower. You should do that.” Stress is always building up and we don’t usually recognize it until something unfortunate happens, whether it’s a physical pain because we’re not getting that oxygen flow to those parts of our body or in our behavior. We snap at people or worse. We see it on the internet.

People are constantly venting all of that stress on social media and taking actions that are not good for other people but also not good for themselves. I recommend to folks you got to do something to be calming down that stress and clearing that stuff out of your system because you’re going to feel better emotionally as well as physically.

The mental and emotional hygiene is key in the work I do with people. Once I have somebody in a session who’s willing to learn it, I recommend they tap a minimum of three times a day. That’s just for the average person that’s got some mild issues. If they have anxiety, I recommend 5 to 10 times a day. I wonder if you could say something about the relevance for dealing with the trauma of using EFT tapping. Do you deal in that realm at all?

A little bit. I’m not a licensed therapist. I try to be pretty good about my scope of practice but it does come up because so many people had that. Tapping can be a very powerful tool for that because when we’ve experienced a trauma, we naturally don’t want to go, stand in that and talk about it because it’s painful but if we don’t then it’s hard to resolve it. The tapping comes down the emotional distress such that it gives us more leeway to work with that.

You’re probably familiar with the work of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk. He talks about how he uses tapping along with EMDR when working with folks on trauma. It facilitates that process of addressing the traumatic events as well as calming down the physical and emotional experience when we reflect on the trauma.

Babbette Rothschild wrote the book The Body Remembers. There’s a newer book by Bessel, The Body Keeps the Score. One of the key things from The Body Remembers book was this idea that it isn’t going to help me to have people go in and get flooded with all of the emotions of their trauma. If I, as a therapist, can watch the early warning signs that someone’s moving from the parasympathetic response into the sympathetic or the agitated response and have a way to bring them back, focus and calm them down to get them to understand they are safe.

They’re safe because they’re sitting in my office and they wouldn’t have even gone to a therapist that didn’t feel safe or they wouldn’t start working in the trauma work if they weren’t safe. If we keep this calming skill and people talk about it as building resources, that’s what you can do with EFT tapping. You can help people calm and build the awareness that they have. If they didn’t walk into your office with it, they can develop the skill to calm themselves in any situation.

It’s the quickest way I know to expedite the parasympathetic nervous system to get all clear and say, “There is no wild animal in the room. It’s okay for us to relax.”

Combined with a calming breath, there’s nothing better I have found for it. I also use it a lot in conjunction with others like Bessel van der Kolk doing it with EMDR. With other techniques and tools that people prefer over EMDR, if they start to get agitated, I’ll frequently initiate some tapping. They can either tap with me or they can just get the benefit of the fact that I’m calming down in the room with them.

Borrowing benefits, there was a phrase like that that Gary Craig had. He recognized that even if you’re just thinking about your issues when somebody else’s tapping on their issues, you can get a benefit because so much of this is energy flow. What we aren’t taught but are getting more and more press is my thoughts, my mind energy is real energy that affects this whole system dramatically. I’ve had people that don’t want to tap with me. I’ll tap while they sit there and they’ll talk about their issue. I will start using phrases relative to their issue. Sometimes they start feeling better enough that they’ll tap. Sometimes they just feel better.

The borrowing benefits of being able to benefit from whatever tapping someone else might be doing then also what we call surrogate tapping where we’ll tap for someone else. I’ve done this where I’ve been with someone who is experiencing some distress but they may not be willing to tap or may not be familiar with it. I’ll subtly be stimulating meridian points. Some people say, “Is that ethical to tap for someone else?” You can pray for someone else. We can’t control someone else’s experience but everything is energy and we’re all connected energetically.

OYM Brad | EFT Tapping

EFT Tapping: There’s a flow of energy through the body along these pathways called meridians. When the energy is flowing naturally, we experience our natural state of wellbeing physically and emotionally.

You could say, “It’s the energetic field. I’m calming down the energetic field. That helps people.” We also are learning more and more about mirror neurons. Someone else, as they perceive me calming down because of the tapping, their mirror neurons will help them to calm down by virtue of that system. There are all kinds of different ways that that can help. It may be that we’re in a matrix. If I’m calming down and I’m feeling better, it’s my perception of the other people that they seem to be calmer. It’s all win-win.

I routinely would teach people about tapping and tapping within for their children. If their children don’t want to tap, tap on yourself because if you’re the parent and your son or daughter is having a tantrum in a store, you get, “People are going to see me as a bad parent.” My anxiety goes up. Tapping for myself, there’s a benefit.

There was a wonderful story of so many I tap into. He went home and was asked to babysit his granddaughter who’s seven years old. She was having a horrible time going to sleep at night. He used the tapping with her and she went right to sleep. The next time he went over and it was bedtime he said, “Do you want me to help you tap?” She said, “No. That makes me sleep.” Now that we’ve introduced the topic of children, could you tell us about The Wizards Wish?

My interview was being filmed for the movie, The Tapping Solution. The conversation turned to children and how children have so much potential. We’re always working with adults and helping them clear up limiting beliefs that are holding them back in their adult life. I said, “What if we could teach this to kids early on and start that before it shuts them down and blocks their opportunities in life?”

I started thinking, “It would be great to have a children’s story for this” I have kids. We loved reading books to our kids. I have always loved wizards. I have Harry Potter ones all over my office here. I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if there’s a story about a wizard who uses his fingers as a wand to help clear out these upsetting feelings?” That’s how The Wizard’s Wish came about.

It’s a children’s book that’s available where?

You can get that on Amazon or at the TheWizardsWish.com. It’s been translated into 25 or 26 languages.

I was thrilled years ago that some people came up with kid-friendly songs to do the tapping with. I’m very grateful to find out that you had that book. I didn’t know about it until doing this interview. If you think about it, what’s an aspect of the work you do, EFT or some project that you have coming up that we haven’t even asked you about yet?

The big project coming up is I’m starting a five-day challenge called the Tap into Your Best Self Challenge. We’re going to be doing a Facebook live event each day challenging people to do some in-depth tapping to clear out those aspects that stop us from being our best selves. The light blocks it. I always talk about the Michelangelo principle and how Michelangelo said, “The statue is already there inside the marble. I just have to chip away what doesn’t belong to reveal the masterpiece inside.”

Taking that concept, our best self is already in there. It’s looking at what are those beliefs, fears and doubts that stop us from seeing ourselves as our best self and then taking the action to make the choices that our best self would make and using the tapping to clear that away. I’m very excited about spending the week doing this. I love sharing this work with folks. The more people being their best selves and tapping away that other stuff, the better the world gets but also because I’m always tapping with people while I’m doing it so I get all the benefits from that too. When I did a challenge like this, I had an amazing week.

I had the experience of when I was teaching this a lot and I’d get a lot of new patients. Things would go smoother. Everything would be great. I’d wake up in the middle of the night. I have a little rough dream. I would think about it and I would tap right away. I’ve even had a situation where there’s so much going on in my life. I’m teaching it so often with different patients or in that course that I mentioned that I found myself waking up to my tapping.

Tapping is a powerful tool, especially if you have experienced trauma.

There was something upsetting happening in the dream. I woke up and startled myself because I was tapping on my forehead in the middle of the night and in my sleep but there had also been times when I drift away from it. I don’t have that many new patients. I haven’t taught the class for a few months. My life seems to be going well and then I have a bad dream. I get up and run to the refrigerator and the bathroom then go back to sleep. I wake up the next morning and I realized I tossed and turned for an hour. I didn’t think about tapping. Keeping it on top of mind is very helpful, which is one of the reasons that I recommend people do it and make it a habit.

I benefit from how much I teach it because I’m doing it on myself when I’m teaching it to someone. This concept of having it be the mental, emotional hygiene, you called it energetic hygiene is so spot on for me. It doesn’t take much in this world for the stresses to build up and for me to get distracted from the things that work well for me. I find myself limping along and realized I’ve got some tools I could use.

By the time we’ve recognized, “I’m limping along,” already on our knees or waist-deep in mud or something like that, you just sighed. I printed out a little Habit Tracker that I offer on my website. It has a list of daily habits. You check off each day when you do it. The first thing I have preprinted in there is tapping so that people will make it. I see it all the time. I’ll often hear people saying, “I don’t get it. I know the tapping works. I know that when I’m doing, I feel so much better. Then I forget and I stopped myself.”

I say, “It’s brilliant because self-sabotage is simply misguided self-love.” There is a part of us that is afraid of change. Part of it says, “If we keep this tapping stuff up, things are going to change. We might increase our income. We’ll have to move. People will be jealous. We need to knock this off.” If somebody goes on a diet, they start losing weight and start to get unwelcome attention, part of the mind is going to say, “This losing weight is a bad idea.”

When we look at someone eating the pint of ice cream or forgetting to tap, we can objectively say, “That’s self-sabotage.” It’s allowing ourselves to be compassionate with ourselves and say, “It’s an act of self-love because I’m trying to protect myself from an unfortunate consequence that I think will occur.” It’s allowing ourselves to say, “Let me look at it this other way. Is it possible that I can still get the benefits and manage those consequences?”

Is there a way that part of my mind can be protective and still have me function well?

Find healthier ways to protect ourselves.

That’s rooted in the observation that everything we do, we’ve got reasons for doing.

People do what works, maybe not in a logical way.

If I’m starting to lose weight and all of a sudden I eat half chuck cake right before bed, part of my mind knows when you were fit as a fiddle and ready for love, it didn’t work out so well. You were unfaithful, too many people or sexual advances you didn’t want. That part of my mind has good reasons for staying heavier but if I’m not consciously aware of it, I can’t smell it.

We have all kinds of positive associations with unhealthy food. Parties always have cake or something like that. When we’re in a situation and we’re not consciously thinking about things but something about it doesn’t feel right, a part of our brain is going, “We’re feeling down. We need to pick me up. What makes us feel good? Chocolate makes us feel good.” Unconsciously, we find ourselves that we’ve gone through half a bag of cookies like, “When did I grab this bag of cookies? Why did I?” We have this programming that cookies make us feel better.

OYM Brad | EFT Tapping

EFT Tapping: This isn’t just a distraction or a voodoo. This is an energy system we’re sitting herein. If we are not letting the energies flow through us and work to their optimal, it creates difficulties.

We have all kinds of different reasons allowing us to recognize. What then happens too often is we beat ourselves up. “I’m so stupid for eating those cookies, for not tapping and for showing up late to that interview where I could have gotten a good job. I totally blew it by showing up late.” We beat ourselves up, which is also brilliant because the more time we spend beating ourselves up, the less time we have to spend making those changes that we were afraid of. It’s like, “I’ll improve things tomorrow. I’m out of time now.”

We start the cycle over and we stay in our comfort zone. There’s a reason why we stay in our comfort zone. We have less health than we objectively and understandably want to have. There’s an expression of, “If you’re not changing it, you’re choosing it.” We’re choosing it at an unconscious level. Most of the choices that we make are unconscious and the choices that we made before to break that cycle. When we try to make those changes, we have a stress response that pushes us in a different direction.

It’s like a chess grandmaster. If we say that, “I’m tired of being single. I’d like to meet somebody.” We’re at a grocery store and we see this attractive stranger a little ways away. “The chess grandmasters are working 50 moves ahead. I could go up and say hi, they’d say hi back. We might start a conversation, get along, find out we have some things in interest and go on a date that day cuddly to a second date and a third date. Eventually we date, move in together and get married. They divorced me and ruin my life. Look, there’s a sale on aisle two.”

We’re down on aisle two before we’ve even consciously been aware of this. We’re looking at the sale going, “I wish I could meet somebody.” It’s because of the stress that’s happening that says, “Get out of here.” To have a way of calming that system down when we’re aware of it but also even when we’re not in that situation to be looking at, “What is the belief that I get into? What are the beliefs that I have? Why would that make me feel unsafe?” That’s why I have people close their eyes and imagine what it is they say that they want.

I say, “Now say, ‘It’s safe to have this.’ Rate that on a scale of 0 to 10.” They’re often surprised by how low the number is. People say, “I want to have more money.” “Close your eyes. Imagine you have all the money you want. How safe is it? “It’s like a 2 or 3.” Now you know. If you had a young child that was invited to a birthday party and you were thinking about the house where that party was and you rated that in, “How safe is it for my child to go to that party?” You said, “It’s about 2 out of 10.” Would you let your kid go to that party? We’re brilliantly protecting ourselves from things we’re not aware of.

Allow ourselves to be aware of the sensation. When I think about having that much money, I don’t know what I’m afraid of but if I get this knot in my stomach, we can start from there even though I had this knot in my stomach and we start to break it down. When we’re tapping, it’s often like peeling the layers of the onion. We’re tapping, “It’s not in my stomach.”

I remember when I was five years old and my dad was railing about people who had money, how greedy and awful they were. There’s a big fight in my family. I realized it was never good to have money. That was dad’s opinion. It was misguided thinking. I cleared that out and recognized there’s a lot of people with a lot of money who do good things.

It’s interesting how the mind works when you were saying the chess grandmaster. About the third time you said it, my mind said the stress grandmaster. It was managing the stress in a way that I’m not aware of but it’s my stress built on my beliefs. This is a wonderful thing because you start to introduce people to the concept that they can be holding beliefs they’re not even aware of. You begin to make it more acceptable for them to start exploring the fears they’re holding and the beliefs they’re holding that they’re not even aware of.

Behavior is about consequence management. We’re trying to manage the consequences and doing this cost-benefit analysis. This chess or stress grandmaster is looking down and going, “What are the pros and cons?” When we’ve made that objectively unfortunate choice of eating a bag of cookies, being late to an interview or whatever it might be. Somewhere in the cost-benefit analysis, I have more in favor of the cookies than health.

More in favor of showing up late and staying where I am than getting a job that could potentially change my life. Allowing ourselves to then look at, “How did I come to that conclusion?” If you could open your brain and follow the neural pathways and all of the experiences, you could look at any choice that you say was a terrible mistake. You’d look at the pathways and go, “I totally see why I made that choice.”

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to chat with you about this. What’s the website you would most direct people to?

If we keep this tapping stuff up, things are going to change.

The place where you can find most of my resources is at www.TapWithBrad.com. I went to so many URLs early on and then folks like you said, “I tell a lot of people, tap with Brad.” That website will lead you to events that I’m doing, my YouTube channel, programs and all kinds of fun stuff like that.

The children’s book is The Wizard’s Wish.

That is available there too.

Thank you so much for taking the time. I look forward to the next time we’re together chatting at least through video at IntegrativeMentalHealthSummit.org. Get access to that. Thank you so much for your time. I look forward to chatting with you.

Thanks. It was great spending time with you.
