About Amara and HPC.

Amara has been studying healing since 1978, was a licensed masseuse in Oregon, having studied Swedish, Esalen and deep bodywork, Polarity and pressure point release. 

She was trained in psychic reading, healing and meditation, and taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, an international method of peer counseling, for over five years, and has been studying and practicing it since 1983.  She has been a professional counselor for over 30 years.

 In 1994 she began developing her own approach to peer counseling, called Wholistic Peer Support, integrating many ideas from RC with spiritual meditation practices, psychic healing and body centered techniques.   She taught it to hundreds of people in Eugene, and then in Hawaii.  Now she is offering it again in Eugene for the first time since 1999.

This approach has been renamed Holistic Peer Counseling and has spread through the Northwest through several of Amara's students.  It is constantly being expanded and re-created.  It is actively being taught in Hawaii, Eugene, Portland and Seattle. 

Amara also developed Heartbeat Nurturing Therapy, a method of healing the inner infant-self using cradling, hypnotic induction and suckling to address emotional issues stemming from lack of breast feeding & loving closeness as an infant.  She is the author of "Heartbeat Nurturing Therapy- Healing Our Hearts Together".
