How to speak so that the Essential Self will listen.

This programme focuses on how to use attuned language in healing conversations so that the client's essential self listens and responds. In practice sessions we will refine our ability to speak to the essential self so that it becomes second nature. Equally importantly, we will practice the true listening that allows us to really hear what our clients say to us. These skills are not only essential for mastering the TARA Approach, they are an enormous benefit to any healthcare practice.

Another major learning outcome of the programme is to understand key thresholds of early development and their influence on the client. We will learn how to identify the early overwhelming experiences that shape the nervous system, impacting health, behaviour and relationships, thus distorting the client's access to essence.

Skillful use of the abilities that you will learn in this course invokes the client's own transformation process. We will see how this liberates the client from habituated, neurologically consolidated behaviours and paves the way for essence and empowerment to direct life choices. We will experience this process firsthand as well, as each programme participant will both give and receive healing sessions that will stimulate their personal as well as professional evolution.

By integrating the learning, practical exercises and experiences this programme delivers, you will attain a level of mastery as a TARA Approach practitioner.

This course is designed for people who have already completed the Essence and Empowerment workshop or who have studied and used Self-Care: Module One and Module Two of the TARA Approach. This is a prerequisite for Advanced Essence and Empowerment. If you have not fulfilled these requirements but would like to before the Advanced Essence and Empowerment course is scheduled, please contact Stephanie Mines directly at for options.
