The TARA Approach to Empowered Healthcare in A Climate Changing World

Tuition – $550

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 nervous personal 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 three 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!


Part Two: June 15-16th ~ Facilitated by Stephanie Mines and Dana Lynne Andersen


Tuition – $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.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Mind training for post-retreat life! Renate

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
