Here's how this course works:
You have the opportunity to join your classmates in a virtual classroom. You will be able to see and hear each other. You will be able to chat with each other in the attached chat room. The link to the classroom will be shared with students only.
Your class will meet weekly for 8 weeks. Each class will be recorded. If you do not want to be seen or heard in the video replay, you can mute your mic and close your video feed; using the chat room to ask questions.
Each class will consist of teaching followed by a group AFT session. You will learn a variety of ways to guide clients, friends and family through the Aroma Freedom Technique. Take notes for your own personal use later.
After the class ends and once it is ready, the video will be uploaded to the course dashboard. You will then be able to watch the video as many times you would like.
Everyone is assigned to a practice group. These groups can be used like study groups. You can work together with some of your classmates to perfect the Aroma Freedom Technique. You may opt-out of the study group if you'd prefer to go it alone.
Required reading: The Aroma Freedom Technique by Dr. Benjamin Perkus. The book provides important information about how the AFT process works.
Hear what our graduates have to say:
Patti Halyburton Abel I am in love with the AFT certification program. After my first experience with AFT I was amazed at the effectiveness and simplicity of beginning the work of removing emotional blocks that paralyze my everyday living. I knew as soon as the certification program was offered I had to do it to share and help others through their own journeys. I have not been disappointed. I learn more and more with each week and get to see first-hand through leading others through the AFT process the benefits and shifts. I have gone through a number of classes and programs on emotional release and this technique by far as been the most effective for myself and those I have had the privilege of walking through their own AFT sessions. Thank you Dr. Perkus for sharing your work and knowledge with us so that we can release the blocks that hold us back and live the life God intended for us.
Carey McLaughlin I am so happy and amazed with the Aroma Freedom
Technique. As soon as I experienced it, I knew it was something I was being led
to do, so I embarked on the very first certification training that was offered.
I am doing AFT sessions with anyone on my Young Living team that is
willing, and we are seeing some amazing shifts happening for people. I am also
using it personally, for many areas of my life, and love how easy it is to find
and release blocks that have been holding me back for years. Thank you,
Dr. Benjamin Perkus, for developing this powerful tool and
giving us the opportunity to share it with the world at large - the world will
be a better place when more and more people get on board the AFT Train!
Strain I was immediately drawn (my intuition at work) to Dr.
Perkus at the convention. My little inner voice told me to buy the book. I am
grateful I listened. My first AFT experience was truly enlightening. I had no
idea how low my self-esteem was due to childhood memories that were holding me
back in my professional life. With each session I have shed another layer (kind
of like peeling back an onion) and realize that I have the potential to grow as
far as I envision. My past is my past it is done and no longer serves me. Thank
you Dr. Perkus for this amazing system to free us from our binding past! Anyone
who is willing to listen is receiving an education from me about this life
Lori Thayer When I learned about AFT I immediately knew I had to learn more. I have been a FasterEFT practitioner and Essential Oil user for many years and I wanted to play with combining them but never spent much time testing it out.
As I learned more about what Dr. Perkus has done I knew this was a technique I had to try. I tried it on myself and a friend within days of learning how it worked and how to use it. The results were astonishing and I could see the belief patterns at work which was in line with the tools I was already using.
I knew immediately I had to do the certification course. This is a technique that is very approachable. You can easily use it on yourself and others. It is something folks can quickly pick up and adopt themselves after you give them a demo or a few sessions.
The oils have a lot of power as they easily cut through a lot of the thought processes that keep us stuck by having an immediate effect on our limbic (i.e. reptilian brain). Even if you don't believe it can work you will quickly see differently.
There is no need to remain stuck in old thinking patterns or be at the mercy of difficult memories. Using AFT you can remove the emotion from those thoughts and memories allowing you to more easily form new thoughts and behaviors.
If you've want to effect great change in your life and the lives of others, start by getting certified in AFT.
M Havlish When I first heard about Aroma Freedom Technique I
immediately had an uplifting sensation within me. I felt a knowing that this
was what I was to do to help myself, family and anyone who is willing to be
open that they have blocks, beliefs or memories that stop them from being who
they came here to be. As I go through the certification course and practice AFT
on family, friends and myself I am stunned at how quickly and completely the
blocks are removed, (we’re talking minutes not months or years!) I find that
what most of us do is to use a band-aid to cover the problem/issue/block where
as AFT gets to the root. AFT is magical in my world and I look forward to
sharing it with anyone who chooses to live a life of joy and happiness.
Cathy McGhee Being in occupational therapy I'm always searching for effective treatments to use with my patients that are still in line with the holistic approach I believe in. The neuroplasticity of our brains make incorporating essential oils very effective. So getting certified in a AFT is an amazing opportunity to further the effectiveness of essential oils while addressing the memory center of our brain. Progressing my patients by removing fear induced memories.
The format of this certification course enable me to have easy access to the instructor and other students. Seeing and hearing live classroom techniques with the ability to do it from my home made the process much easier.
The material was simple to follow yet fully explained Theory and technique. The cost of the course was very manageable.
Rabbe I love the aroma freedom certification class! It is so
helpful to have interaction via zoom on a weekly basis and to have class
members to interact with. Dr. Perkus is extremely responsive and supportive to
the students. Since the class has begun I have cleared multiple patterns and
blocks that have held me back in my life. I am a licensed acupuncturist and
have my own practice in Clarks Summit PA and I have been doing well but not
really getting myself out there. I did an interview for the local news station
on cupping today...never would have happened without this class. Also I embrace
technology...previously hated it with a passion.
