07 Practice: Emotional Freedom Technique with Geleni Fontaine of Third Root Community Heal…


Episode description

Join us for a simple tapping practice called Emotional Freedom Technique with Geleni Fontaine of Third Root Community Health Center. This utilizes the knowledge of acupressure points and is something you can truly do anywhere - alone, in a group, or on the go.

Check out the practice diagram and instructions for a more visual reminder and explanation:

The phrase you’ll use is: “Even though _____, I love and accept myself completely.”


Check out episode 7 for the corresponding conversation with Geleni and Emily Kramer titled "De-spa-ifying Healing & Accessibility” to listen to our conversation about somatic symptoms of oppression and the increased pressures since the 2016 election, in what ways Trump and our current political environment is making us sick, what it would look like to de-spa-ify healing and make it part of our everyday lives instead of a luxury commodity, and how organizers and leaders can make our movement spaces more accessible to the widest range of folks with varying capacities. (Bonus: they also sing a song!)

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Geleni Fontaine of Third Root Community Health Center

THIRD ROOT is a holistic healthcare center in Brooklyn, NY offering yoga, acupuncture, East Asian medicine, massage, herbal medicine, and wellness education. They are a multi-racial, cross-class, intergenerational community, and a worker-owner cooperative. Third Root manifests a world where we all belong, we are all healing, and we are all welcome in our wholeness. Collective members include Geleni Fontaine, Jomo Alaquais Simmons, Julia Bennett, Emily Kramer, and Nicolette Dixon. More at

GELENI FONTAINE, a collective member of Third Root, is a fat, queer, Latina/o transperson raised and thriving in Brooklyn, New York. They are a graduate of the Swedish Institute School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine where I studied Traditional and Classical Chinese Medicine with Jeffrey Yuen, 88th generation Taoist priest and healer. They’re also a registered nurse and use knowledge of Western allopathic medicine to support individuals navigating both healthcare systems. Geleni is a member of the Rock Dove Collective, a group of healers, providers, and activists coordinating a radical community health exchange in NYC; a former board member of the Audre Lorde Project, the first queer people of color center for community organizing in the U.S.; and NOLOSE, an organization dedicated to ending the oppression of fat people and creating vibrant fat queer culture. They have a 13-year history of training and teaching martial arts and have worked many years with the Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE) as a youth educator, anti-violence activist, and crisis intervention worker. This experience has lent to their understanding of healing as a mind / body / spirit construct that includes support for individuals as well as radical responses to the institutional oppression we face as communities.
