Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Scientist and natural therapist Dr Tamara Justus, in the natural course of motherhood, conducted a guided meditation to help her daughter Jasmine relax and feel happier.

After seeing improvement, Tamara turned her idea into a book to empower other children to help them release their emotional pain and discover the joy they have inside.

Journey with the Rainbow Dolphins simplifies a combination of healing techniques to teach children to love unconditionally, express their feelings, be confident and courageous and ultimately understand their inner qualities.

‘This will benefit children’, says Tamara. ‘I do a lot of ‘journey’ work. I see a lot of adults that have been through a lot of trauma and they don’t believe in themselves, they are shut down.

‘I believe that starts when you are younger – all the things that happen to us – we shut ourselves down. I hope that when people read this book to their children, they will realise that we all have these positive attributes and beauty within us.’

Tamara says we are supposed to be living a life of freedom and joy and happiness as we were when we were children. ‘I am hoping not just the child gets something out of this book book but the adult reading it to them.’

Part of the proceeds from book sales will be going to Dolphin Research Australia.
