I'm well "aware" of the varieties of woo out there, as well as the adaptable nature of pseudoscience and scam artists. There's always a new scam to be investigated. However, I don't have unlimited time to spend watching "demonstrations" of things that have already been exposed. That's like insisting on sticking your hand in the fire, even though you've been told by dozens of reliable sources that it burns!

I don't call that thinking. I don't call people who fall for such scams thinkers. I'll be nice enough to leave it to your imagination what I do call them. If the majority of the group wants to spend time watching palm or tarot or tea leaf readings, or listen to someone extol the wonders of psychic healers or snake handlers, I won't stand in your way, but I won't be attending. My time is better spent arranging my sock drawer or watching funny cat videos!

I like thinking about everything.  It is what I think makes me aware of something else to think about and be aware of inatead of being limited and unaware.  It may be beneficial or even non beneficial ideas, products, circumstances, and so much more.  If it exists be it known or unknown, awareness seems very beneficial.

I'd like to opt out of all these TFT and EFT messages ... as soon as I find out how!  Can't believe these are central to the thinkers group.

I am so sorry I do not get to visit with you guys more but I do read the communications when I can. I am a licensed therapist and a clinical hypnotherapist here in St. Petersburg. I use EFT to help a lot of people with a lot of things and understand it from a psychological frame; I get what Craig says about Chi and meridians but it can be understood from other perspectives as well (bi-lateral stimulation, recipricol inhibition of neuronal activities, reduction in stress response, thought blocking and affirmations). It is NOT the right tool for everything, but then again- neither are medications. It is just one more tool. Tamera Fontenot, LMHC, NCC, CCHT , TampaBayHypnoTherpay.com.

It becomes a scam for anything to claim it can cure every disease. Unfortunately, TFT shoots itself in the foot by these outlandish claims, yet many therapists incorporate this successfully in lasting treatment for their patients. Don't throw away the baby with the bath water.
Dogs don't write blogs or discuss treatment modalities with their peers, yet T-Touch techniques work for them, as do massage, chiropractic and massage, all of which not that long ago were touted as voudoo and placebo.

I would like to see that - lets schedule it!

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFTs) are a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupunctureneuro-linguistic programming,energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy. It is best known through Gary Craig's EFT Handbook, published in the late 1990s, and related books and workshops by a variety of teachers. During a typical EFT session, the person will focus on a specific issue while tapping on "end points of the body's energy meridians". Advocates claim that the technique may be used to treat a wide variety of physical and psychological disorders, and as a simple form of self-administered therapy.[1]
The available evidence from studies done on EFT have shown that while there may be small effects from use of this technique, they are likely due to well recognized conventional psychological techniques often used with the tapping, rather than the purported "energy" mechanisms. EFT is generally characterized as pseudoscience and has not garnered significant support in clinical psychology.

Some people are not familiar with EFT: I am quite familiar with it and would like to make a statement for the group. It appears that the reason eft is called (emotional freedom technique) is that while it can work on other issues than emotional, when an issue cannot find solution that makes it an emotional issue even if it was a sore shoulder or any other problem. EFT works on any problem. I have never seen it fail and am always amazed at how well it works on any problem.
      I believe that it was Einstein who said that "things should be as simple as possible"
"but not not simpler" The people who wouldn't give it a chance to work felt that it was too simple.  Actually the more simple the technique,the faster it can work. I have seen and done many 2 minute cures. No credit to me, People heal themselves when they allow it to happen. When this gets setup - up as a topic I will be happy to demonstrate it. The people who participate in the demo will be happy that they were there for a cure  and for those who like myself like to be "helping people" will be happy to learn a quick technique for helping. 
E me or call me.

Does anybody have a flag? That would help mark the pavillion.
I think we should check out the first four pavillion first since they are centrally located. If they are taken, then we will check out 7 & 8 pavillions next.
