TT Practice Groups


Practice groups enable new and experienced TT practitioners to get together to practice TT, receive TT, share knowledge, ask questions, and receive feedback in a supportive environment. Practice groups usually start with a mediation. Some groups incorporate an education session or topic of interest, and some invite friends, family, or members of the public to receive a TT treatment.

Please contact the Practice Group coordinator for further information.
