ACEP gains an ally in the fair treatment of integrative approaches
Sep 19, 2014 — Dear friends,
Because of your support, we ran a successful petition last year gaining over 11,280 signatures. Thank you! Our Wikipedia campaign continues and we have some exciting progress to share. ACEP has recently begun collaborating with the developers of the Integrative Studies Historical Archive and Repository (ISHAR). The goal of ISHAR is to digitally curate 500,000+ entries on cultural and cutting edge scientific knowledge related to mind/body healing practices from all over the world (including energy psychology). Additionally, ISHAR aims to serve as a major institutional voice (in conjunction with ACEP) to weigh in on and correct misinformation that currently exists about EFT, TFT, energy medicine, etc. on standard platforms such as Wikipedia.
Well known and respected supervisors of the project include Deepak Chopra and Professor Robert Thurman, who Time Magazine chose as one of its 25 most influential Americans in 1997, describing him as a "larger than life scholar-activist destined to convey the Dharma, the precious teachings of Siddhartha, from Asia to America."
How can I continue to help the cause?
Watch the videos on the ISHAR IndieGoGo campaign page (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/let-s-raise-ishar), pledge a donation − even $20 (the cost of one yoga class) will help and share with friends and colleagues. If you continue to be frustrated by the way so-called “skeptics” have usurped Wikipedia, this is a way to bring power to bear on them. ACEP is providing a substantial matching grant to ISHAR ($2,000) in the next 36 hours.
It took the organizational strength of ACEP to change the APA’s stance on energy psychology. More recently, ACEP has focused its organizational strength on new goals. We are advocating for integrity in following the doctrines of fair play and neutrality in describing and evaluating EP, EFT and other integrative approaches on the web and in print. ISHAR stands for the same things. We are so pleased to have an ally in ISHAR.
Thank you again for your continued support!
Your friends at ACEP
