Report on Energy Cone Technique & Interview with Tom Wynn

Report on Energy Cone Technique & Interview with Tom Wynn Steve Collins writes: The GoE were invited along to the first UK Energy Cone Technique workshop which was held earlier this month. This article conatins my full report on this fascinating new technique along with an interview with the systems creator, Tom Wynn.


Steve Collins writes: At the closing of the EMO Conference Training in Gatwick earlier this year I was talking with EMO/AMT/Reiki Trainer and general energy master, Sally Canning. She was glowing (well, it was the tail end of a three day ET conference!) and full of excitement. Sally was going to Australia for a break and to see loved ones the following month, but also, she explained, on her return would begin preparations for the first UK Energy Cone Technique workshop and with that introduce to the UK a man called Tom Wynn, the techniques creator. Sally had many good words for Tom and his Energy Cone work and so I buzzed with intrigue at her enthusiasm. After telling me of Tom's presentation slot at the ACEP (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology) conference and giving me a brief explanation of the technique, Sally invited me along to the workshop to find out more and see why a former man of the sea from Ireland had left such a positive impression with his new development in Energy Psychology...

So two months down the line, with an open mind and the assistance of sometime-AMT-photographer and designated driver, Derek McCarthy, I headed North to Nottinghamshire to attend the Energy Cone Technique workshop. Here is my write-up which is followed by a great interview with Tom.


After a 5.am start from the South coast (our 'driver' had not driven north of London before and estimated at least a seven hour journey, maybe more if we hit traffic!) and many instances and opportunities to utilise some new personal ET discoveries - clearing my (now previous) chocolate addiction for one - we arrived in the beautiful town of Worksop. Approximately 5 hours ahead of schedule! This gave us plenty of time to check in and have a rest before attending the Sunday evening presentation prior to the workshop on Monday. We arrived a little early to be met by Sally and Tom and a great team of helpers busily making their final preparations for the evening ahead.

Tom is a fantastic and open character, full of life, extremely likeable and I could see why he received such wonderful reception in the United States at the ACEP conference recently, and why he seemed to stay so fondly in the memories of those he met. I felt excited and at ease while talking with Tom about the conference in California and learning a little about his technique before the rest of the attendees began to arrive.

With camera/audio crew set up and ready to record the event, Tom took to the microphone and began telling us the history and science behind his Energy Cone Technique. Tom is an engaging speaker with an enjoyable tendency to 'go off on a tangent', and happily shared with us personal experiences along with detailed information concerning the whys and how's in relation to different aspects of his technique, much of which was explained through understandings Tom discovered through his in-depth study of Cranio Sacral work as well as both the lymph and meridian energy systems. So far, so good!

Tom gave us our first demonstration of his technique on a member from the audience and I wasn't too surprised at the surprise of the volunteer as a long-standing issue was resolved fairly quickly - energy work is fast! The shifts were clear to any keen observer before any verbal confirmation from the volunteer or the muscle testing that followed. Tom gave several more demonstrations of his system in action, in between having us all howl with laughter at his wicked sense of humour, and as the evening drew to a close I was excited about the workshop and opportunity to experience ECT the next day.

We arrived the next day, with my companion still slightly sceptical.

"I'll just lurk around at the back and take some more photos. I'm really tired and probably won't be able to focus on the work"
"And besides, I expect there'll be tears" he joked.
And by the end of the day, with his full participation in the workshop, there were. His!

Following some more fascinating background info from Tom and full details of the process we began with our first exercises. In short, the Energy Cone Technique begins by utilising the existing relationship between the skin and the brain, the skin being the physical outer limit of the brain. Because of this, the technique can be initialised on any part of the body (as 'Energy Cones' are found throughout the whole body) but works particularly well when working on the hand as this is the most sensitive part of our outer physical being, containing 20% of overall body sensitivity. This is obviously also more practical when working with clients in a professional setting.

Taking the 'clients' palm, we looked for any irregular marks, small dots, dark spots or anything that seemed to stand out. Once found, softly palpating the area with the fingertip would bring to awareness feelings stored in the body along with associated memories/images. Theses marks were often located on the fine lines found in the palm and when there didn't seem to be any obvious marks then simply following along these lines would usually be enough to locate and elicit an 'Energy Cyst' that need to be worked on - what others may be used to terming as disturbances within the Energy body caused by emotional, mental or physical trauma. Once located we would ask "And where do you feel that in your body?" along with a few other set-up questions and interventions, and from there follow with what we employ during an EMO session - have the client focus on the sensation and with their intention keep it moving until it exits the body.

When this happens, there is an interesting occurrence where the pulsating which can be felt above the Energy Cone slows down before ceasing entirely. Very interesting and fascinating to experience! This also serves as a great way to know when the trauma has really been cleared completely or if there is an aspect which still needs to be worked on, which again will prove very useful when working with clients.

So in brief, the Energy Cone Technique quickly accesses injuries or trauma which may not be in conscious awareness and allows for quick and effective treatment.

ECT will make a fine addition to any therapists skill set and should prove particularly effective for clients with kinesthetic leanings and a true godsend for those who are not blessed with knowing exactly what their problems are and where they can be found! Client led and non-invasive, ECT and can be performed safely by relatively inexperienced practitioners and I see one of the its best aspects as being that interventions can truly be content free, leaving less room for either the practitioner or client to get lost in unnecessary pondering during drawn out sessions. When working with energy (and working with it right!), issues can, and should, be cleared with ease and often surprisingly quickly. ECT gave me another fine example of this in action at the workshop and I couldn't help but get excited. It was like discovering EMO or experiencing EFT for the first time.

Those with a keen interest in the psychic circuitry will also find other aspects of Toms ECT rewarding on a personal level and Hypnotherapists should have a great deal of fun integrating this into their current set-up. For those of us working mostly or primarily with energy, this is a great aid and problem finder when other avenues of locating issues have been exhausted.

Using metaphor is a non-essential element of the current set up that may not be entirely practical for all therapists, such as those with limited skill/experience. Working with or introducing metaphor in therapy can be tricky at the best of times, and many energy therapists and practitioners of various techniques are either trained to - or often choose to - steer clear when working with clients in the professional environment. With that said, those who's current work is based in techniques such as Symbolic Modelling, NLP, Transpersonal Psychology, Jungian therapy, or Psycho synthesis etc, will greatly appreciate this optional part of the process. With ECT being so easily adaptable beyond its unique set up, Tom has provided a host of possible methods to be employed at various stages, providing simple, fast, effective and pretty much guaranteed results in a safe client-focused and client led fashion. ECT allows for the respect and privacy of the client but leaves room for engaging in issues further and openly if desired, also highlighting nicely the client-practitioner dance which can be found in the most advanced and successful methods currently being employed in the field of Energy Psychology.

Combining the initialisation process of ECT and quick-sure power of EMO should glide therapist and client smoothly through what before could have potentially become an extremely intense and lengthy session with abreactions galore - as can often be the case when long buried and repressed issues are revealed for seemingly the first time. I experienced this to some extent for myself when working with a fellow attendee during an exercise. After the first stage of the ECT process what Tom calls an 'energy cyst' was located easily by both myself and my exercise partner as my forearm and wrist became tense and I said I felt like it was burning. A memory came up which when emerged I recognised fully. Without EMO at this point I really could quite easily have had a total freak out, making all kinds of insane decisions about myself and the world! Thankfully my partner was a fully fledged ET practitioner (and as Tom had told us earlier, at this stage in the process we use whichever tried and tested tool works best for the job in hand) and so we worked quickly, releasing and clearing the 'energy cyst' through various blockages, and then worked quickly through several connected issues which revealed themselves, through and out to the Energised End State, reaching Even Flow . Whenever working with energy I instinctively begin the EMO process as second nature (and EFT when circumstance allows) and felt blessed too have the tools of ET and the ECT as the reality of what we had cleared hit me. So I did my best to ensure I didn't have a complete apex moment and grinned at feeling so light and clear.

Where did I feel that in my body? All over! And it felt pretty good....

The Energy Cone Technique will be easily adopted and easily adapted into any current set of systems and techniques that people are using when working with the human Energy system. A new way of unrooting and releasing emotional injuries and psychological traumas smoothly and eloquently - whether it's issues below the level of awareness, buried in the subconscious or yet revealed by the energy mind, ECT will throw a good few surprises your way at the receiving end, which, processed with the right tools, will be cleared quickly. ECT commands respect as a stand alone technique but is perfect for adapting into an existing system. The standard technique is simple and straight forward, but any stage can easily be focused on in much more depth if the client or practitioner feel it necessary - something I can see being utilised by practitioners working on themselves/exploring the technique personally or when working with one another in research.

As well as feeling good results fast, I also noticed a definite shift in my regular base states in the week that followed and couldn't help but smile as I remembered the work we had done at the workshop.

I'm sure the others who attended the workshop will join me in looking forward to the arrival of full practitioner trainings, an independent manual/self-help book and maybe even a little taste of Tom at the GOE's European Energy Conference in 2007!

If you'd like to be kept up to date with the development of ECT and when the first UK practitioner trainings will take place then contact Sally Canning through her GoE Profile page. And take a look at her website to read comments from others who attended the workshop and find out why a full grown, (and at first very sceptical) man cried like a girl - and was grateful for the opportunity.

Soften & Flow that one, Mr McCarthy! ;-)

Thanks to all the people of Worksop and fellow ECT'ers who made the experience so enjoyable (in particular Joyce who worked with ET so well during our exercise), to Sally and her team for organising such a well run event (and making such tasty quiche and cake!) and of course to Tom for sharing this great new technique with the World.

I caught up woth Tom after the workshop for a round of quickfire questions which can be found below.

In the raffle draw which took place to raise money for Breast Cancer Care (www.breastcancercare.org.uk) I won a hardback copy of ''What The Bleep Do We Know ' which accompanies the fantastic film of the same name. I will be donating this to the prize pool for the AMT's fourth million hit competition, which, thanks to all you many visitors, is now drawing close - look out for full details coming soon!

Happy July folks and enjoy the summer! If it all gets a bit hot for your liking then just remember - it's only an energy...

An Interview with Tom Wynn

Okay Tom, first of all and for those who haven't yet heard about your technique, I think I'll start by asking you to explain to us in brief what ECT is all about...

Hi Steve, First of all I would like to thank you for your presence at the workshop. You have a wonderful โ€œgravitasโ€, an aura that enriches anywhere you are.

The ECT instantly accesses the energy of trauma held in the body. Trauma is stored in the body as โ€œenergy cystsโ€. (trapped energy). ECT brings the cysts to awareness with a light gentle touch, then releases the trapped energy. It does this by reversing the process by which the trauma entered the body. It follows the 2 nd law of thermodynamics which states that energy goes from organized to the disorganized and it takes organized energy to reverse the process. The skin and light clothing are regarded as the outer physical limit of the brain. When we touch the skin the brain must respond, and brings up feelings in the body that resonate with the energy of the touch. When the feelings manifest themselves, any therapy of choice may be used to remove them. Touching the hand is usually the most effective way of accessing these โ€œcystsโ€. When using the palm it is much more effective if the chosen therapy does not involve letting the clients hand go. The energy of the trauma can be monitored by the therapists finger tip as it leaves the body. Trauma can also be accessed by using the energy of a clientโ€™s own words to bring feelings up, by a method called Basic Perception, or First meaning. Ordinary words may be imbued with trauma because their very first meaning was encoded in the unconscious at a time of trauma.

What about the history of ECT and the journey that lead to its creation - how did it come into being and where did it all begin?

I went to sea in 1956 as a deep sea Radio Officer. I bought a book on palmistry to while away the long idle hours at sea and became a โ€œfair-groundโ€ palmist, ie I told people what they wanted to hear. But my readings began to be โ€œgoodโ€ and people came to me for readings to help them make life changing decisions. It made me anxious, so I gave it up. I took it up again, for fun, after my wife died in 1992. I became a hypnotherapist in 1998, and did all of the workshops and courses available, usually twice, TFT , EFT, TAT, AFT, TAB, EMDR, Freeway AMBIT, Parts Therapy, Time-Lining, Basic Perception, BSFF, and others, as well as becoming a Reiki master, and other hands on therapies, Cranio-Sacral, Bowen, Indian Head Massage, Paul Newcomeโ€™s Gentle Touch, Metamorphic Technique, Manual Lymph Drainage, and Applied Physiology. I am certified to teach Hypnotherapy, EFT, TAT, and PLRT (Past Life Regression Therapy). I have rubbed shoulders/dined/had discussions with Callaghan, Craig, Yapko, Bannister, Nims, Brooks, Howard, Bandler, McKenna, Bodenheimer, Keaney and many others. At the first European Energy Psychology conference in Lucerne, Switzerland, in 2001, I read Tarot and palms in the evenings โ€œfunโ€ time. I was reading a ladyโ€™s palm when a mark on the palm looked like it might be an ink mark. Marks on the palm are significant to palmists, so I rubbed the mark to see if it could be erased but instead she went into an abreaction. At the same time she clamped her other hand on her tummy. Also at the same time I could feel an eruption of energy in my finger tip. I knew how to handle abreactions, so allowed it to abate. As it did so the energy volcano under my finger faded, and when the abreaction was over her hand fell away from her tummy. I was vastly relieved, and went on with the reading. I moved my finger to another spot on the palm, and the volcano came up again, she went into a milder state than before and her hand went to a different place on her tummy. This happened again, then the reading ended. The lady was extremely tired, and relaxed. This was an uptight lady, and her relaxed state caused comment. Others presented their palms and I did exactly the same with the palm, and got the same result. I knew I was on to something, but didnโ€™t quite know what it was. I started using the technique to explore my new discovery. I gradually came to realize that I was working with the way nature encodes learnings in the body. The nature of trauma is simplicity itself, how it enters the body, how it becomes encapsulated and how it can be โ€œvoidedโ€. Using ECT is like drilling for oil. Focusing on the energy is like striking oil, the pressure drives the oil out in a gusher. The pressure in the cyst is higher than the area around it, so must leave via the drill of intent. As I explore the limits of ECT, I find the horizons widening, and there seems to be no limit to its uses. I used it on 2 expresidents of ACEP and was invited to present at the 2006 conference. My presentation was a wow, the biggest breakout session at the conference.

You seem to have put a lot of effort into researching the science behind your technique, something many people will appreciate - was it important for you that people understood that part of the process and why ECT works so well?

When I became a hypnotherapist in 1998 I was unhappy because there was no real way of telling precisely what was happening in the clients body. All the meridian energy and hands-on therapies and techniques added to my appreciation of the energetic workings of the human body, but it was the Cranio-Sacral technique gave me the final piece of the jigsaw. This technique can actually locate the energy cyst itself exactly where it lies in the body. This is the key to the ECT. When the brain engages in a problem the cranial rhythm stops, and restarts when the problem is over. That gives the ECT 4 independent measuring devices, 2 of which cannot lie, or be manipulated. 1. They are the cranial rhythm which stops and starts; 2 the vibrational energy of trauma itself which is felt in the finger tip (these cannot lie), 3. muscle testing or idio signaling which answers yes/no questions and is very reliable but can be manipulated if required, and 4. the SUD system, subjective units of disturbance, reliable but can also be manipulated. It is my passion to have this new approach understood, and known. This technique becomes almost part of the therapist as its operational simplicity and effectiveness changes your perspective on the body, and its energy system.

What would you say were the pivotal moments for you in forming your current understanding of the human energy system and how we can work with it?

The first moment of truth was the time in Lucerne, Switzerland, when I brought on the abreaction with the touch of a finger during palmistry. That brought the awareness of the special energetic relationship between the skin and the cyst in the body. The next pivotal moment(s) were in the Cranio-Sacral workshops. These brought an understanding of the way in which the energy of overwhelm, emotional, mental, spiritual or physical, is handled and stored by the body. The big realization was that the body held the negatives, while the brain held the feel goods, the opiates. The final pivotal moment was when I realized the value of the cranial rhythm, which, when combined with the energy cones gave extremely accurate measurements of the progress of energy cyst elimination.

As well as being a great stand-alone technique the system combines fantastically well with other existing approaches in Energy Psychology. Which are your tools of choice when working with ECT?

I raise feelings in the body using the energy cone technique, and eliminate them with EMO. Any technique can be used to remove these feelings, including Journeying, basic perception and dialoguing, but EMO is the easiest, most client friendly method of all. I have only used another technique a very few times, usually because of client resistance.

You were asked to present at the ACEP conference in California recently - how did ECt go down the other side of the pond?

The Americans went wild for ECT. It was the instantness of it that appealed most to them. You know how Americans love speedy results. I had the biggest breakout session of all 50 breakout sessions, with over 60 attendees. We went well into lunch time, but nobody left before the end. I have been promised that if I apply again for next year 2007, I will be selected.

Did you find time to sit in on any interesting worshops/lectures/presentations while you were there?

I went to all the workshops and breakout sessions that I could. They were of interest, but none of them gave me a buzz. I was nervous coming up to my presentation, but most of what I saw and experienced was outside my view of therapy. That seems arrogant but as I said earlier working with ECT seems to change your perspective of trauma and treatment. However Bruce Lipton gave a keynote presentation that was sensational. It was about the way energy entered and was handled by the body, and fell in with the view expressed in my breakout notes. I was over the moon.

I hear you're set to present a second workshop on ECT in the UK later this year with Practitioner Trainings to follow. What are your hopes for the future of ECT?.

I feel that in a very few years ECT in one form or another will be the standard intervention used by most therapists. EMO combined with ECT is all one needs, the perfect match. I will be presenting another ECT workshop in Worksop on Monday August 28 th. I hope to have the ECT accredited, insured and then have practitioner workshops. When accredited I hope to bring the technique to the US.

And finally, if you were to be remembered for one quote, what would it be?

ECT works wonders, quickly, easily and permanently. We change the way we feel, to change the way we think, we change the way we think to change the way we choose, so we can make better, more informed decisions.

Thank you for your time Tom and for sharing this brilliant technique with the rest of the world!
