Amara taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, a method of peer counseling, for over five years, and has been studying and practicing it since 1983. She developed 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 also has studied tantra and sexual healing since 2003, in Hawaii.
Heartbeat Nurturing Therapy emerged from a combination of peer counseling and tantric healing practices. Amara's book "Heartbeat Nurturing Therapy, A Guide for Friends and Lovers" was published in 2011. This guide covers everything needed to start to give and receive this intimate therapy, including the basics of trading peer counseling, inner child work, nurturing with the voice and touch, staying centered and clear as a giver, and much more.
Amara has also written "The Torus of Life Healing Meditation" which gives information about the power of the torus shape in nature, and instructions on qi gong movements using this form for healing.
Amara is a videographer and has numerous videos on her Youtube channel, including many music videos illustrating her original songs. She lives in an intentional permaculture community in Hawaii.
