Unprecedented Leadership In The Climate Movement

Stephanie joins co-facilitators in a Now What?! Deep Dive.

“These unprecedented times call for unprecedented leadership. Greta Thunberg has stunned us with her clarity, courage, perseverance and authenticity. There are many more unique leaders in the world just waiting to step up to the plate. Indeed, every one of us is a leader and every one of us is needed.

 What are the traits of unprecedented leadership and how do we cultivate them? Is leadership more threatening than climate change? What can we do to catalyze leadership in ourselves and others?

Join in a  deep dive into the challenges, joys, characteristics and mysteries of unprecedented leadership. Feed the collective field that is seeking orientation and nourishment to bring out the leadership we are destined to embody. “ - Stephanie Mines

Mending The Hoop Of Life : A Deep Dive Into Diversity & the Climate Crisis Movement

Stephanie joins co-facilitators in a Now What?! Deep Dive to explore this essential topic.

“What can we as people committed to global unity and correcting the errors of ignorance and denial that got us to this place of potential climate disaster, do to create inclusivity and why are we not doing those things?

Because I am committed to Unprecedented Leadership I cannot imagine leaders who do not address this issue. As someone who aspires to be an Unprecedented Leader, I would like to launch a Deep Dive with others to authentically, intelligently, lovingly and wholeheartedly excavate this multi-layered fragmentation that has shredded the hoop of life.

Beyond this investigation I would like to consider actions that make a difference and meet with people willing to implement such actions.” - Stephanie Mines

The Metallurgy of Grief
Sep

12:00 PM12:00

The Metallurgy of Grief

Our world becomes more unrecognizable by the hour. Species loss has already robbed us of 80% of our animal allies. The very soil from which our food comes is losing nutrients. Personal losses blend inextricably with environmental losses as we are inundated with grief. Like the huge ice melts in Greenland our world is literally slipping away from us. Is it even possible to find our footing if the ground beneath us is giving way?

 The TARA Approach posits a stunning vehicle of self-care and self-regulation that admits the magnitude of grief, integrates it and transmutes it. TARA’s founder Stephanie Mines feels that her entire life has taught her about the metallurgy of grief. Her studies with Mary Iino Burmeister introduced her to the possibility of living in a fluid state. The spectrum from stasis to fluidity is the journey out of habituation into infinite possibilities. Learning to calibrate and recalibrate levels of fluidity until the nervous system is fully expanded is TARA’s gift. It is intended to be a tool for those sensitive warriors who were prepared from birth to meet the existential crisis that is now our daily reality.

 This webinar is open to anyone who is committed to living fully in purpose with resolve and grace. The emphasis is on self-care but does include service to others. This will be a participatory and collaborative experience. Take-away skills, including charts and relevant hand-outs, are provided. A handbook is in process and those who register for this first iteration of the Metallurgy of Grief will receive it as soon as it is available.

 All tuitions benefit the continuity and expansion of Climate Change & Consciousness.

Tuition: $200USD

ADVANCED TARA - Building Nervous System Stamina for a New Era/Ending Addiction

  • Bellingham, Washington (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This advanced training has two components. The first focuses on how the nervous system can be vitalized and regenerated no matter what its biography. In this course those who are interested in being Sustainable Healthcare Practitioners, leaders in a climate changing world, buttress their nervous system resilience and enhance it exponentially so that the echoes of historical trauma become extremely faint. Participants have the opportunity to truly step into their capacity as healthcare leaders ready to empower others to do the same. Of necessity, this involves ending habituation. This leads to Part Two of this course: ending addiction. You read that correctly. COMPLETELY ending addiction. This component includes not only energy medicine but also another palpation process that has to do with cranial treatment. Subtle, nuanced and completely safe cranial applications uncouple habituated and consolidated neuronal pathways to liberate optimum resilience. The nervous system comes home to a spontaneous and liberated body. Healing trauma is thus the path to freedom. Students receive a guidebook for cranial treatment as well as charts, maps and handouts.

Course tuition is entirely non-refundable but can be transferred to another similar program within one year.

Intro to The TARA Approach with Anneke Stolte

  • Findhorn Village Centre, Church Place (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The TARA Approach is a form of energy medicine based on the ancient Eastern technique of Jin Shin Jyutsu, the Art of Compassion. It uses twenty-six sites on the body that are particularly powerful bioelectrical energy centres. These are held in different combinations or 'Flows' to restore the circulation of energy along the extra-ordinary meridian lines of our body and to activate our inherent self-healing processes. 

In the TARA Approach the Jin Shin Jyutsu is fused with Western neuro-science to offer specific tools for the recovery from shock and trauma. Chronic health conditions, auto-immune issues, fatigue, difficulties in dealing with stress, anxiety, addictions, could all be signs of the body holding on to shock and trauma.

This is a practical one-day workshop introducing the energy medicine and self-care practices, which can be used by anyone who is interested in transforming trauma for themselves or others, and can be incorporated in other bodywork or healing modalities. It is also an introduction to the TARA Approach Foundation Course. 

Cost: £40. Booking with Anneke Stolte annekestolte@hotmail.co.uk

About Anneke

Anneke is a qualified Foundation teacher of the TARA Approach www.Tara-Approach.org who has studied with Dr Stephanie Mines, since 2011 in Scotland, Ireland and USA. She is a Shiatsu practitioner FwSS, T’ai Chi teacher (www.greatrivertaichi.co.uk) and Ecologist MSc.

Jin Shin TARA Cranial Training : The Social Engagement System.
Jan
24
to Jan 25

Jin Shin TARA Cranial Training : The Social Engagement System.

The TARA Approach to cranial treatment evolved out of Dr. Mines’ research with Traumatic Brain Injury and Neurodiversity. It is a fusion of Cranial-Sacral Therapy and the work of Stephen Porges and Stanley Rosenberg, along with other influences, to release the twelve cranial nerves. This flows out of an understanding of the Social Engagement System that includes the Polyvagal System.

In this course students learn:

1. Exercises to prepare themselves to be able to use the palpation skills required for cranial treatment;

2. Ways to assess each individual’s readiness and availability for cranial reorganization;

3. Assessment skills to read the health of the Social Engagement System;

4. An overview of the relationship between early trauma/shock (including birth trauma) and the Social Engagement System;

5. Tools to evaluate cranial structures;

6. Palpation skills to read cranial rhythms;

7. Interventions to release cranial nerve impingement;

8. How to implement safe cranial treatment without fear of any contraindications; and

9. How and when to integrate cranial treatment into other modalities, especially other aspects of the TARA Approach.

This course is considered an Advanced TARA course and counts as a credit for Advanced Certification.

Register by contacting Peter Heard - captainenviro@gmail.com or on 027 431 3544 OR

TARA shows the nervous system the way home after overwhelming and shattering disruption. We learn to listen to the body, to read it, and to follow its directive. It is as simple as that…our hands are our ears; our voices are our hearts; and intuitive spontaneity is our intelligence.

“The TARA Approach allows healing to unfold naturally through the elements. You obviously need to be present and connected to the process but through the elements healing follows its own path and its own pace because the natural process knows intrinsically how to unfold itself.” ~ Eleni Charalampous

TARA Approach Foundations

  • Bellingham, WA, 98225 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This course will demonstrate how we can, with our own hands, bring our nervous systems back home to our bodies. This means using the gentlest energy medicine as the seductive siren song that convinces the human nervous system that it no longer needs to remain fragmented. An ancient Japanese healing art called Jin Shin has the recipes for this restoration of nervous system function. Dr. Stephanie Mines has adapted these formulas for current conditions, and even for those that are accelerating now through the advance of climate change. The TARA Approach is a merciful system, named for the forces of compassion that reach out to humanity to show them the way. Jin Shin TARA shows the nervous system the way home after overwhelming and shattering disruption. We learn to listen to the body, to read it, and to follow its directive. It is as simple as that…and as miraculous. Our hands are our ears; our voices are our hearts; and intuitive spontaneity is our intelligence. Who ever thought that healing trauma could be pure joy?

Location outside of Bellingham, Washington will be sent upon registration.

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!

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.

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.

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.
