"Energy Psychology, Tapping and Beyond - A Simple Plan for all Practitioners."
Energy psychology and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), commonly known as 'tapping’, have become Xincreasingly popular in recent years. These techniques are easy for the general public to learn and have been shown to produce the rapid and lasting resolution of phobias, cravings and addictions.
However, it is their use and success in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in military personnel returning to the US from the Middle East, and in veterans
from previous conflicts, that strongly suggests this approach can play a vital role in many acute and chronic conditions in the community at large.
For several years, Robin Kelly has used and has taught these techniques in his general medical practice. He has learnt to recognise that past trauma, both physical and emotional, plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of many chronic illnesses, and has devised treatment plans that address and dispel the debilitating on going effects of such trauma.
In this practical workshop, he demonstrates how we can easily employ these techniques even in the busiest practices for a wide range of conditions – they can be adapted to play a role in the management of not only emotional disorders, but also chronic conditions such as diabetes, autoimmune disease, cancer and chronic pain.
The techniques are simple to learn and cost nothing. Importantly, they involve people in their healing giving them true ownership of their health.
Participants will leave with skills they can use immediately on themselves, and on their patients and clients. Along the way, Robin will explore the underlying science and theories of epigenetics that may begin to explain just why and how such dramatic results are being achieved through these energy psychology approaches.

"The Quantum Human: The New Paradigm and What it Means for our Work, our Lives and our Future."
The past five years has seen a revolution in the life sciences. The quantum world, previously regarded as being significant only in the cold, dry environment of physics laboratories, has been now shown to be present within warm, wet living tissue. Quantum biology has come of age.
Robin Kelly presents the latest cutting edge science, and the speculation that quantum processes are at play in epigenetics – how our genes are activated and deactivated by environmental factors.
He explains how we can use this information every day in our practices, and predicts that this scientific revolution will radically impact on future healthcare whilst further validating a truly integrated, holistic approach to healing.

'The Human Hologram - The Science and the Speculation.'
Dr Robin Kelly asks the question: Are we holographic beings living in a holographic universe?
In this visual and tuneful presentation, he explores the scientific and anecdotal evidence that suggests that there is far more to us than our physical body as perceived by our five senses. He wonders whether our brains tend to filter out fields of consciousness so we can focus unimpeded on our productive lives, and whether it is our feelings that connect us to underlying truths.
Along the way he examines the new field of quantum biology, and the emerging evidence that quantum processes are at play in photosynthesis, within the eyes of migrating birds, within our sense of smell, within our brains and our chromosomes. Is modern science indeed on the threshold of discovering profound underlying truths about the nature of life itself?
There is also speculation that quantum processes are integral to epigenetics - how our environment affects the expression of our genes. This may well provide valuable insights into why stress and feelings of separation or abandonment so often play a role in the development of chronic ill-health.
How can we begin to use this information practically in our everyday lives?
Robin draws on his 38 years of experience as a family doctor and medical acupuncturist, and shows how he integrates these theories with compassion and joy into his daily practice, and speculates what, on earth, all this could mean for our present and future lives.
May 13th 2013. 12pm. University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.
Global Health Round:
“The New Science of Connectedness – What it Means for the Living and the Dying.”
Robin sheds doubt on whether modern science fully supports this model, and how and why an appreciation of a new science of connectedness is now essential if we are to understand and treat those with chronic ill health. Robin explains how emerging theories of consciousness and quantum biology must be also considered by health professionals, especially in the treatment of those with chronic or ‘terminal’ illnesses.
Moreover, the belief held by many traditional cultures that consciousness ‘survives’ death can no longer be totally dismissed on scientific grounds. If indeed the theory of a ‘primacy of consciousness’ gains scientific acceptance, then our fear of death will be greatly reduced changing how we perceive our lives, and our practice of medicine, forever.
This presentation is based on his research and over 30 years of experience working alongside chronically ill and palliative care patients.
