Surrendering Your Ego



This year long personal development program provides you with a weekly tapping based on the 12 steps of humility. In each video Leonie will tap with you and there is a downloadable PDF of the tapping script so you can tap it on your own any time you wish. This is a life-changing journey into surrendering your ego, no matter how little or much of it you think you have.


In Michael Casey’s A Guide to Living in the Truth: Saint Benedict’s Teaching on Humility, he explains that over a thousand years ago, Saint Benedict proposed that humility is the truth of human nature, whereas pride is a ‘radical falsehood.’ This truth impacts on the mind, heart, and emotions, and to deny its influence is the source of all human suffering. This course involves a weekly tapping script covering each of the steps of humility.

• Acknowledge our role in everything and acknowledge other’s role in everything as well
• Step out of the drama and acknowledge ow we control ourselves and others through drama

Third Step: Acknowledge a higher power

Sixth Step: Contentment with the least of everything

• Embrace our powerlessness and free ourselves from the fear we will not survive
• Stop taking everything personally
• Accept that everything isn’t about us

Eighth Step: Seek to understand oneness
