Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are Amara’s religious/spiritual beliefs or affiliations?
Amara was raised by a christian father and agnostic mother with Native American and European ancestry. She was educated in Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism & Non-dualism and now lives in South East Asia.
Amara is sympathetic to all God, Energy or Spirit related belief structures but does not hold to any particular belief, theory or ideology herself. She is neither identified as spiritual nor non-spiritual and does not define herself or others by their beliefs. Amara works in a field of Present Awareness that is innately empathetic, compassionate and wise “beyond belief” or the need for beliefs as a foundation for thought, speech and action.
Amara’s full bio is available upon request.
2. Is Amara awakened or enlightened?
In 2012 Amara experienced a so-called spiritual awakening opening to a greater experiential perspective or Realization. Identities don't wake up. Instead the egoic construct falls away and what is left is Awake-ness. Awakening is only an invitation to be and become Self Realized. We could say Amara is in the Abiding process of integrating Awakening into her life experience, yet there is a knowing that THAT which she IS and all essentially are, has nothing to integrate as it never was ever actually separate. Is she or isn’t she? will always be a personal question having a yes and no answer, depending on the person’s perspective asking the question.
3. Can Amara heal me or awaken me?
Although many have experienced the powerful transmissional and transformational energy Amara offers, healing and awakening happens when a participant is ready, willing and able. Ready to surrender to a significant degree, their previous known or unknown limitations/strategies of body, heart, mind and spirit. One must be willing to see the Truth of what they are and are capable of. Amara can only strongly invite others to let go of lack and rise up in love . She can guide you sometimes gentle sometimes fierce to the stage but you must step up to it yourself. No one can shift or surrender for you.
4. What if I’ve already had an awakening?
Wonderful! Many times after such an experience which is happening around the world more and more we benefit greatly from added guidance, confirmation or deeper subtle understandings from those who have been living and working with it daily for years before us. Amara has a gift for guiding those in the process of kundalini rising, Awakening, Spontaneous Healing, and Abiding or Embodied Integration process.
5. can i study with amara as a spiritual teacher?
It has been Amara’s previous focus to train facilitators rather than teach students in order to bring the experiential process of conscious evolution into the world. However due to the overwhelming request for Amara to offer more formal teachings, She will be offering a monthly SatSang or public teachings via InnerSangha.com and through various other written and audio material.

About Private Sessions and working with Amara:
1. Where does Amara offer her private sessions?
Amara offers sessions at her home-center in Ubud Bali, online and in limited numbers when she is on tour.
2. What do I need to do to get ready for a session with Amara?
Please take the time to reflect before your session about you life and what you would want if you were really safe, committed, trusting and free? Even if you don't know at least you know that you are unsure and we can work from here. The more simple and honest the answers the better.
Please recognize that you are signing up for a potential shift in your previous foundational understandings which can and will affect the way you experience life on many levels. You will have more choice, more response-ability, less obligations to fulfill and more freedom ahead of you. To the egoic or dualistic-survivalist system this can be a real jolt even threatening. To the True or Evolutionary Self it is an extraordinary gift of Grace.
3. What if I have taken plant medicine, drugs or alcohol lately?
Do note that engaging in drugs, alcohol and plant medicine 3 DAYS before your session is not advised and can reduce the effectiveness of receiving the offerings significantly. Come as you are with a true willingness to be yourself honestly and to meet your evolving Truth. This is all that is required. Addictions can be resolved and personalized strategies for sustainable health will be discussed.
4. How can I hold on to the experience and make it last in my life?
When one has experienced a full-body shift there is an instant integration that will last more or less depending on your level of commitment to living that new truth. You cannot un-see what has been seen. However we can of course support that integration with tools such as IGI writing exercises, daily connection through IG self-practice, self-activation through the Inner Guidance Transformational Audios, mentorship packages and more. Amara is always investing in more and more sustainable ways to serve, support and activate conscious individuals, families and communities.
About the 5-Day IGI Intensives:
1. Where do these 5 day Intensives take place?
IGI 5D Intensives takes place in Ubud Bali Indonesia and at other centers in Canada, Singapore, Finland, Sweden, Thailand and wherever Amara is touring. Please see our regularly updated calendar of events for dates and times.
Please note that a minimum number of participants are need to hold the group experience. Before you buy you ticket to Bali, for those flying in, make sure that the group has reached guaranteed status.
2. What are the program hours?
9 or 10 am to 5 or 6 pm daily with 1.5-hour catered lunch break.
3. What if I can’t attend all 5 days? Can I still attend?
Amara has seen that in order to offer the deepest and best invitation for transformation, the absolute least amount of time it takes to walk participants through a cohesive cycle or journey and land them in a stable place is 5 days. Any less and you run the risk of leaving mid-transition which can lead to some reactive challenges.
That said if you trust yourself and would like to attend less days for various reasons, we allow participants to attend only the first 3 to 4 days. Due to the intense building group dynamic and growing field of trust, no one is allowed to join the group after the first day has begun. The cost of the 5D intensive is the same no matter how many days you attend.
For those seeking to enter the Level 1 Training program all 5 days of the the 5-day Intensive are required.
Please note that no one had left the group yet even when they intended to :-) They see the vast value, benefit and opportunity at hand and end up making arrangements to stay. Also so far ALL those who have wanted to leave due to the resistances arising as they go deeper into the work end up being so glad they stayed! Please make time to attend all days and please do not expect to be able to got back to work during or a few days after the program. It is life changing and this need to be respected with introspection.
