Around the turn of the century in Japan, an independent and very
self-directed young man named Jiro Murai lay alone on his deathbed
in his family's mountain cabin. After leaving his family to seek
his own way in the world Jiro had contracted a life-threatening
illness, now believed to have been leukemia, and came home to die.
While awaiting death he received spiritual guidance to place his
fingertips on certain areas of his body, thereby reversing his critical
condition. The form of energy he discovered is now known as Jin
Shin. Jin Shin Tara is the application of this system specifically
for the resolution of the shock and trauma endemic to our age.
Jin Shin Tara is the energy medicine component of the TARA Approach,
an overall design for healing from over-whelming experience. In
the TARA Approach intentional dialogue is used to bring awareness
to the mind-body-spirit connection. As the recipient's energy flows
it is translated into wisdom that becomes conscious through the
act of intentional dialogue. By exploring what may have shocked
or traumatized us, we learn how to resource ourselves and we gain
enormous insight into our overall life situation.
I have benefited most from the self-healing and self-care capacity
of the TARA Approach. Self-care is the first thing that is learned
by practitioners. There are twenty-six energy centers in the body
and these form the foundation for this energy medicine. Once the
locations and attributes of these areas are learned and contacted,
individuals are empowered by their own ability to balance and revitalize
themselves under any circumstances. Knowing that the life-force
flows from our own fingertips and can be re-circulated into our
mind-body-spirit gives us both self-sufficiency and independence,
allowing us to develop a loving relationship with ourselves. The
TARA Approach embodies the philosophy of "healer heal thyself."
