Free Community Talk - What is Sustainable Healthcare?
May
5
10:00 AM10:00

Free Community Talk - What is Sustainable Healthcare?

Sustainable Healthcare means healthcare resources that ignite the natural healing response within you. The orientation is not towards what others can do for you. It is towards what you can do for yourself. The concept behind sustainable healthcare is that it is self-sustained and self-regulated.. You are not dependent on outside resources to move your healing forward. Think of the value of having access to these kinds of resources during difficult times such as when there are natural disasters or unforeseen events cut you off from external resources. Sustainable Healthcare is not intended to be a replacement for outside services. It is intended to stand on its own whether those outside resources are available or not. It is integrative. It is accessible. It is always available once you have been awakened to it. Learn how to turn on the confidence to apply the practical steps of sustainable resources during this experiential community event.

SUSTAINING HEALTH IN TIMES OF CHANGE - a Workshop with Sally Ibbotson

IN BENEFIT OF CLIMATE CHANGE & CONSCIOUSNESS 

In this workshop we will look at the impact of change, particularly unexpected change, on our health and will learn techniques which can help us to cope better.

We live in fast moving times and change even that which is for the better, can often adversely affect our immunity and resilience to disease.

Faced with climate change we can see that in those areas already effected, usual healthcare routes quickly become overwhelmed. We would do well to reconnect with natural and time-tested traditional ways to keep ourselves and our families/communities healthy.

The Workshop will focus on daily protocols for health

Mindfulness in Daily Life:

Mindfulness is now being brought into healthcare settings, schools and prisons as evidence mounts that it is an effective way to keep ourselves happier and so healthier.

Qigong:

Qigong is the origin of Tai Chi and is very easy to learn. Moving in time with the breath, we will learn short routines to assist breathing, mobility and general well-being.

Self-Healing Massage:

A fully clothed routine of acupressure that you can use to ‘kick start’ your day!

Raising Funds

The Workshop is by donation with a suggested fee of £15.

Profits will go to the Conference for Climate Change and Consciousness taking place in Scotland in 2019. The money raised will go to bringing youth and indigenous people to the conference so that those who will be most affected by climate change, have a voice.

See www.ccc19.org

The workshop is supported by Transition Willesden. The Transition movement aims to put in place local solutions to global issues such as climate change. Picking local fruit to stop it going to waste, and campaigning for cleaner air are some of the projects undertaken by this local organization.

EVOLVE: A CLIMATE CHANGE & CONSCIOUSNESS Pre-Conference Event

Art Infused Healthcare with Stephanie Mines and Dana Lynne Andersen
June 11-16, 2018
Ananda Laurelwood

 
This six day immersion has two components. Participants are invited to register for all or either of the moving parts.
 
Part One - June 11-14 - Facilitated by Stephanie Mines ($550*)
 
The TARA Approach to Empowered Healthcare in A Climate Changing World
 
This course defines and implements sustainable healthcare in a climate changing world. Our primary teacher is the Natural World. How do the Five Elements of Nature evolve in our bodies during our formative years? How is their evolution shaped by our experiences, just as a tree is shaped by the wind? Your elemental story is the story of the development of your personal nervous system.
 
Participants gain access to their deepest and most essential natures and learn how to support others to do the same. The methods include understanding the language of the Five Elements in their human idiom. This language is communicated in behavior, voice, skin tone, energy pulse, health symptoms, personality and movement. By translating your elemental idiom you unearth your essential nature and find your purest expression, the one that you took on a body to present to the world. In this way each participant will experience a kind of birthday during these four days.
 
The formula for thriving in a climate changing world always includes the expressive arts. Because Stephanie knows this so well she has invited a collaboration with Dana Lynne Andersen, founder of Awakening Arts Academy. This collaboration shapes the remaining two days of our immersion. This is the birthday party!

REGISTER HERE FOR PART ONE

 
Part Two: June 15-16th ~ Facilitated by Stephanie Mines and Dana Lynne Andersen
 
CELEBRATE WITH HeART with Stephanie Mines and Dana Lynne Andersen ($250*)
 
Your birthday party is an opportunity to be guided by the brilliant artist and founder of the Awakening Arts Academy, Dana Lynne Andersen, in using the visual arts to express your neural networks and your elemental truth. We will go one step further in our celebrations by linking our neural networks to those of the world. Stepping out of the world of language into the world of art we will expand our personal expression as far as it will go with color and shape. By finding out who we really are we also find our inter-relatedness with our global community. Self-advocacy becomes a pathway to advocacy for all humanity. When this syntonic relationship is celebrated we can move fluidly, with laughter and motivation, from I to We find and fulfill our individuated purpose at what is surely the most significant and fateful threshold for our entire planet.

The Art of Listening to the Body
Aug
11
to Aug 13

The Art of Listening to the Body

Somatic listening is an art you can learn. Health is efficiently restored when the body's messages are heard and understood. By reading the pulses of the Five Elements and evaluating cranial structures and rhythms you can identify core issues and from this identification know what interventions to use. The TARA Approach is returning to Norway August 11-13, 2018 to impart this art.

TARA Approach Certified Teacher and Advanced Practitioner Runa Helmersen has established the TARA Method in Norway. She has been preparing her students for this advanced course for over a year. You can join them in the exquisite Norwegian town of Friedrichstadt and share the magic of Norden Lys, the Northern Light, which is also the name of the lovely clinic in this historic village where the course will be held.

Advanced TARA practitioners see through the veil of symptoms and pierce to the essence of need. The tools in this course enhance this skillfulness alongside another TARA hallmark tool: attuned mirroring in language.

Learn how to read somatic advertisements of need and answer them efficiently. Be more than a healer or healthcare practitioner. Become a mentor by embodying the art of somatic listening.
 

Tuition: $450USD*

*This price does not include lodging, meals, lodging or transportation. Lodging can be arranged at a nearby hotel (Gamlebyen hotel, http://gamlebyenhotell.no is one suggestion). Meal arrangements will be provided along with details about the location of Norden Lys in the picturesque village of Friedrichstadt upon registration.

to Aug 19

The Dance of Life: Experiential Embryology ~ How We Unfold

  • Salt & Soul Yoga Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Dr. Stephanie Mines is a neuroscientist and trauma expert who founded the TARA Approach, a holistic healthcare paradigm for the resolution of trauma. Stephanie incorporates the healing art of Jin Shin which she learned from the woman who brought it from Japan to the US, Mary Iino Burmeister. Jin Shin includes a map of the body with areas that Stephanie calls the Sacred Sites. These are derived from the folding and unfolding process of the human embryo. In this two day courseparticipants learn to identify and experience the power of these sites through the dynamics of movement.

The objectives for this weekend of movement based learning are self-discovery, self-awareness and self-care. The Sacred Sites combine to create simple acu-touch practices that enhance resiliency at all levels including immune vitality, muscular tonicity, flexibility, endurance, longevity and rehabilitation.

There are no pre-requisites for this course. It is open to everyone. It will be especially interesting to healthcare practitioners, parents who want to learn about early development, bodyworkers, dancers, movement  teachers (including yoga teachers), healthcare and healing arts practitioners and anyone committed to developing human potential. Students of Jin Shin and the TARA Approach will experience an in-depth and profound exploration into the Sacred Sites to deepen their understanding of them. This course applies towards certification for those becoming TARA Approach practitioners and teachers.

Participants learn:

*About embryological unfolding;

*How movement patterns originate;

*The source of structural strengths and difficulties;

*How to repattern suboptimal movement and structural dynamics;

*How to balance the nervous system using the Sacred Sites;

*How to support children in optimizing development and sensory integration;

*The source of habitual injuries and how to end those patterns; and

*The freedom of authentic movement.

 

Participants should dress comfortably for movement on the floor. There will be a break for a light meal. Our sharing will be in the context of group co-intelligence and is not intended as psychotherapy.

Essence & Empowerment
Sep

to Sep 7

Essence & Empowerment

The TARA Approach is an integrative design that fuses Western neuropsychology and a simple meridian based touch system.

We live in a world of increasing sensory inundation where identifying and following one’s purposeful inner guidance becomes more and more complicated. The TARA Approach guides you back to your essential purpose, the one you brought with you when you were conceived and empowers you to follow your truth into this world where it is desperately needed.

Participants in this course learn how to reclaim and support their essential selves using a combination of dialogue and applied touch. Anyone can engage equally in the stirring reclamation of self that restores the health of the physical and energetic bodies simultaneously.

Sep

to Sep 21

ADVANCED ESSENCE AND EMPOWERMENT: THRIVING IN A CLIMATE CHANGING WORLD BY ENDING SHAME & ADDICTION

TARA Approach students at the 2017 Advanced Essence and Empowerment course asked for a continuation in 2018 of the TARA Approach to Ending Shame and Addiction. Using neuroscience to comprehend the patterns of satisfaction and compensation that are thwarted by trauma, TARA Founder Stephanie Mines developed language and energy medicine protocols that shift habituation of all kinds. As we enter the era of accelerated climate change we are called by Gaia to step into the full power of who we are and act in our own unique and collective ways to stand for the Earth and the children of the future, as well as all the creatures and beings of our blessed Natural World. To support this movement into a New Story of who we are individually and together this course focuses on ending old patterns of shame and addiction gracefully and thoroughly. This workshop is open to those who have absorbed TARA’s Foundations and are ready to inhabit their soul’s essence and be free of the entanglements of the past. ADVANCED ESSENCE AND EMPOWERMENT is a highly experiential and emergent threshold dance that incorporates hands-on energy medicine practice with expressive and creative events that free us on the spot and in the moment to be our full selves. Get ready to turn the volume up on the authentic message of your incarnation!

The CLIMATE CHANGE & CONSCIOUSNESS: OUR LEGACY FOR THE EARTH conference is an intergenerational, international and multi-cultural event that will be held at the iconic Findhorn Foundation in Scotland, April 20-26, 2019. The goal of this unprecedented gathering is to create the atmosphere in which an emergent conversation can develop among those committed to resilience and stewardship in the face of climate change.

During the event, we will awaken a passionate spirit of creativity and resilience for our love of Mother Earth and for our children and the children of the future. Through interactive, embodied and experiential dynamics, participants will access intelligent and innovative constructs to meet the demands of this new world. Each individual will be invited to invoke their Legacy for the Earth. And when all our roles are combined we will represent a global mission of stewardship. This conference will be a sizeable life-raft for humanity!

THE NEUROCHEMISTRY OF GRATITUDE: A Free Community Talk

The potential to live vitally every day of our lives is inherent in the human design. Just as the healthiest, most natural nutrition maximizes this potential, so does brain nutrition ignite innate consciousness, clarity and intelligence. Recent clinical studies into what allows individuals to recover rapidly from disease shows that gratitude is one of the most efficient stimulators of the neurotransmitters that optimize healing. Neuropsychologist Dr. Stephanie Mines shares not only why that is so from a neuroscience perspective, she also reveals how each one of us can arouse that neurochemistry, no matter what our history, through gentle self-care practices that enhance brain function. Interactive demonstrations will enhance everyone’s deep learning.

This community talk is open to the public. Energetic Wellness generously provides unique opportunities for learning and development in their classroom. Space is limited. Early registration is recommended by contacting Energetic Wellness HERE.

THE BODY’S WISDOM: INTRODUCTION TO THE TARA APPROACH with Dr. Stephanie Mines

Friday, November 17 ~ 10am-12pm and Saturday, November 18 ~ 10am-6pm ~ ENERGETIC WELLNESS

In her clinical and personal quest for how individuals who experience trauma can recover with grace and ease, Dr. Stephanie Mines learned that the brain and the body are resources for activating recovery from destabilizing experiences. Her talk on THE NEUROCHEMISTRY OF GRATITUDE reveals how neurohormones that enhance focus and presence are activated by overt and internal expressions of gratitude. THE BODY’S WISDOM shows you how your own touch on certain sites of the body accelerates health. The combination of healing thought and healing touch makes it possible to live a resilient life every single day no matter what the outside conditions may be. We can evolve more and more throughout our lives. The body and the brain continually learn and evolve when they are nourished.

Course fee: $150. This does not include materials. The TARA Approach to Self-Care, Map of the Body and the book WE ARE ALL IN SHOCK can be ordered directly through the TARA Approach website (www.Tara-Approach.org).

At the request of TARA Approach students this four day advanced training focuses on how the TARA Approach can be used for issues of alignment, movement and structural ailments, particularly when they are chronic, and cranial treatment. Dr. Mines approaches these questions from a comprehensive standpoint. What do your structural ailments have to do, for instance, with your family history, your epigenetic exposures, and your immune system? Could it be that the symptoms that grab your attention are not really what are behind your pain? The TARA Approach Advanced Training offers stunning insight into alignment disorders alongside cutting edge subtle treatment interventions. Students will see, for instance, how positioning in utero and at birth shapes structural development. Students receive training manuals dedicated to this field. 10-5 Daily; $700USD tuition only.

ENDING SHAME AND ADDICTION: ENERGY MEDICINE FOR THE SOUL: TARA Approach students who have completed at least one iteration of Essence and Empowerment or the TARA Approach Foundations course are eligible to attend this class. Designed by previous TARA Approach students ENDING SHAME AND ADDICTIONS is a class for those ready to step into their essential empowerment by disinhibiting resistance, erasing guilt and shame, and manifesting the fluid bioelectricity that is the experience of optimum health and awareness. Students learn how to use the extraordinary energy medicine component of the TARA Approach (Jin Shin TARA) effectively to address chronic patterns of self-sabotage, avoidance, procrastination, holding back, resistance and disempowerment that are the basis of addiction. Each student will have the opportunity to create a personal constellation that represents their addictive patterns with the purpose of disinhibiting it completely. The physiology of addiction, including the patterns of sympathetic and parasympathetic dominances, will be examined with an eye to instilling a much more integrated nervous system balance. Through their own process of self-advancement each participant becomes a model for others personally and professionally.

How to Create Better Health with Jin Shin TARA with Runa Helmersen in Norway

In this workshop you will learn how to easily touch the various energy points to balance the body's energy system, which strengthens both physical and mental health and provides peace of mind and body. You will also learn about the nervous system's reactions through stress and trauma, and why this energy medicine is so effective in treating traumatic stress in the body. The focus is primarily self-treatment, but we help each other by keeping a close eye on each other's energy points as well.

Runa is educated in the Danish psychomotor tradition, and teaches the energy medicine Jin-Shin-Tara. This can be used by both therapists and others without prior experience.
She has backgrounds from theater, cancer care and adult psychiatry. Runa has accumulated much of this wisdom in the book "Home in Your Own Body", which is sold throughout the festival.

ECSTATIC ENERGY: THE RIVERS OF SPLENDOR IN OSLO, NORWAY
Aug

to Aug 24

ECSTATIC ENERGY: THE RIVERS OF SPLENDOR IN OSLO, NORWAY

The Rivers of Splendor are the Extraordinary Vessels that develop in utero and encode essential purpose into the cells of the body. They are the DNA of the human spirit and the download of the soul. Health constellates around these formative designs. The TARA Approach to hands-on subtle treatment is the only system that touches these pathways. TARA’s pulse listening decodes messages from these bioelectrical circuits. Gentle touch responds to the information that is retrieved. In this way the Rivers of Splendor are regenerated so that each individual can flow towards their home-self in body, mind and spirit. Advanced TARA Approach students (those who have completed a Foundations course) are eligible to explore the nature of these Rivers in an intensive small group setting outside of Oslo, Norway. Hosted by Certified TARA Approach Self-Care Teacher Runa Helmersen this course aims to correlate the Rivers of Splendor with The Depths. The Depths translate as embryogenesis or embryological unfolding. Students will be engaged in largely experiential learning dynamics that focuses on individual embodiment. Students will gain a profound awareness of the preciousness of human life and individual purpose along with specific tools to empower others to live vitally and courageously as their essential selves.

The Power of The 8 Extraordinaries - Gaston, Oregon

  • Ananda Laurelwood Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A fusion of the best of TARA’s medicine bag. Experience authentic movement, playful constellations and the most essential energy medicine practices for navigating the world by flowing with the Rivers of Splendor.  This advanced course demystifies why the subtle energy medicine practices of the TARA Approach are the key to fulfilling your destiny. “In some ways, you can think of these vessels like the Holy Grail,” says acupuncturist Yvonne Farrell. They sustain the connection to your essential self in all regards. In particular this course correlates energetic embryogenesis (The Depths) with the Eight Extraordinaries. This correlation is a world debut as this has never been presented before anywhere.  

In this class students will:

*Learn exactly how the Rivers of Splendor or 8 Extraordinary Vessels function from a subtle energy medicine perspective that is distinct from acupuncture or acupressure; 

*Learn how to vitalize these networks of original energy and sustain their dynamic presence throughout life; 

*Embody these core networks of energy so that you know them from the inside; 

*Integrate the 8 Rivers of Splendor with Five Element Theory to reveal your elemental configuration;

*Find the language and the delivery system to guide others to awaken the 8 Extraordinaries within themselves; and

*Celebrate the gorgeous transmission of resilience that is our birthright. 

TUITION $750, does not include lodging at Ananda Laurelwood Center or travel.

I am more excited now than I have ever been. Now we know what we need to do.”

*Receive direct mentorship from Stephanie Mines, TARA Approach founder;

*Use the newly developed TARA LEADERSHIP workbook to seed your innate leadership skills;

*Differentiate what serves you from what you no longer need in dynamic, experiential and embodied learning;

*Unlock the reservoirs of the Eight Rivers of Splendor, the vessels of your essence;
