Meet Tara Brennan
I’m Tara, welcome to my website.
I’m a meditation teacher, yoga teacher, clairvoyant energy healer and the creator of Energy Arts Academy, a school I started in 2010. My formal training is in counseling and art. I got a Bachelors degree from City University of New York/Hunter College in Psychology and Fine Art. I fell into my energy healing career in the middle of a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I left the Master’s Degree midstream following my heart by moving out to the Southwest all by myself, landing in beautiful Sedona, Arizona and Scottsdale, Arizona (more about that story later!)
I’m fascinated by the intersection of the spiritual with the physical and bridging the gap between the cosmic realms and normal every day life. I believe the spirit part of us is supposed to be in charge of the body/mind part of us. For most of us we have to reprogram ourselves to come into that alignment, it is not how we were raised unfortunately. As we do, and we put Energy Mastery techniques in to practice, we begin to get awesome results.
Beautiful “unshakeable” peace and joy within can be the new normal, my students and I are living proof! Where there was pain, lack and stuckness, a new you can be born, the true you. This path of transformation, the Energy Mastery path, has enabled me to lighten up at the cellular level. I’ve seen this exact transformation in so many students and clients as well. After dedicating time to meditating and studying and going through spiritual growth periods, we have achieved excellent results. I would love to guide YOU in this same process of ‘lightening up.’ At one point in my late teens & early 20s, I had a very heavy pain-body (The teacher Eckhart Tolle coined this term for psychological pain and wounding from within, like a depression.) I always say, “I was my first project,” so I can say from experience… this Energy Mastery “stuff” really works!
By this point I have helped thousands of people all over the globe on my path as a professional healer and teacher these last 25 years. Over and over again I see tangible results unfold for my clients and students, as they put the practices into motion and receive support and guidance on this healing path. The results are manifested in all areas of life: health & vitality, mental wellness, physical healing, relationships, work, finances, life purpose, spiritual connection, success, creativity, fun, etc.
I’m excited about what I’ve added into my toolbag of healing modalities in the past 14 years. Fourteen years ago I began a path of intensive spiritual training centering around higher chakra awareness through in-depth meditation. Wonderful healing abilities opened up with the clear guidance of my teachers. I’m a third generation clairvoyant, but it wasn’t until this training that I really owned that among other gifts. I have always been very empathic and intuitive my whole life but my latest endeavors have allowed these innate talents to flourish and then some. My studies over this past decade have consisted of clairvoyancy, hands-on-healing, transmediumship, teacher training and spiritual leadership training.
This passion project of the last decade dovetails so nicely with my previous trainings and I love offering all of it. In 2003, I completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in an Anusara-Inspired style, going on to teach Vinyasa Flow, Deep Stretch/Yin and Meditation in yoga studios & gyms in Arizona and California. I have been a Reiki Master since 1999, when I completed all three levels of Reiki. And in 2003, I upgraded my Reiki attunements to become an even better Reiki Master Teacher. Prior to everything, I trained as a counselor through my undergraduate Psychology degree and my graduate Social Work degree. This all adds up to 25 years of energy healing practice, study and mastery to bring to the plate, and offer the most that I can.
I didn’t plan to open Energy Arts Academy it just happened, as I was so passionate about sharing the techniques, tools and philosophy that were transforming my life. It all started with two students in my living room! It has been an awesome journey and here we are 10 years later and going into the new decade. We have a growing community and the Spiritual Leaders Team – they are a group of advanced students at the Academy who are teachers in their own right and professional healers, offering their services too. If you want to join us online, you can find us on Facebook at our page Energy Arts Academy and the private Facebook group Daily Meditation Challenge.
