Why do you mostly teach on Whidbey?
We feel that stepping into a different space and consciousness when taking our workshops is more beneficial to our students. You could blame it on the smell of Puget Sound, the calling of the eagles and whales, or the friendly laid back artist community but many people find the island special in some ways they just can’t explain. We recommend you go for a walk in the old growth forest or the agate rich beaches during lunch breaks or after the day is over. If you come a day before or leave a day later you can hike the sacred lands of Chinook, or the Earth Sanctuary or enjoy the many galleries and feast on the abundance bounty from our local fishermen and farmers. The island’s motto is “The closest trip to far away” as we are only a 30 minute drive plus a 20 minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle. Transportation from SeaTac airport is easy with the airport shuttle service. We often have people driving from points north and south of the island that request ride shares or you can rent a car either on the island or at the airport.
What about lodging on Whidbey?
Because we’ve been doing this for so long and islanders have come to know how special our students are, we have quite a number of friends who open up their homes to you. There are rooms available for as little as $40 per night making it more affordable than having to spend the night in a hotel in Seattle if we were holding a workshop there. We share our list of friends’ contact information private until you register for the class. If you’d prefer a more traditional room or B&B we recommend the Langley Chamber website https://www.visitlangley.com/lodging/
What’s your cancellation policy?
You can receive a refund (minus $50 admin fee) up to 3 weeks before the workshop is scheduled to begin. We can also give you credit towards a future training/workshop of your choice.
Do you teach in other places as well?
Our Seattle EFT workshops and training usually happen on the Whidbey since its considered part of the metro area however we do teach annually in South Florida, Palm Desert, Hollyhock Retreat Center in Canada, and Massachusetts. Other regular venues include NY, NM, Chicago, and OR. Special requests have taken us to teach in LA, to D.C. and Israel. If you’d like to have us teach in your area please contact us directly.
What sets your trainings and workshops apart?
Alina Frank and Dr. Craig Weiner apply instructional tools and material they have refined and mastered while teaching hundreds of people around the world. Dr. Craig is also a top Right Brain Aerobics trainer which gives him the ability of making complex neuroscience approachable to all. Alina’s way of including experiential exercises throughout her courses has given the respect of her peers and has given her workshops consistent 5 star reviews by her attendees (many say we hold the best workshops they’ve ever attended). We spent a great deal of money and invested lots of energy training to become top trainers because we understand that even if someone is a good clinician it doesn’t necessarily make them good trainers. We believe that we truly embody the art and science of EFT at its best.
What else do you offer besides EFT Internation EFT Level 1/2/3?
