Thank you for visiting this blog post. The content that was here is now available as a Hara eBook!
It’s called The Story of the Hara. This eBook has far more content than the blog post and includes a section full of personal practices for your own Hara and entire life.

In Japanese, Hara means “belly.” Hara no aru hito means “the person with belly.” A person ‘with belly’ is a person with a ‘center.’ Lacking a center results in loss of balance.

Having a center brings tranquility, stability, warm-heartedness and a grounded response to life, as well as surety and accurate action.

The Hara is a seat of power and vitality. Located at the midway point of the body, the Hara is a natural balancer. We really move from here because the legs are nearby and are an extension of the Hara. The mind has a home here too: the Hara is a place where thoughts cease and the mind becomes unified.

Located below the belly button and a little way into the body, the Hara is the same distance to the feet and the head. Physically it’s our center of gravity. Because it’s a vibrational center, the Hara is also a spiritual center.


I wrote this book to provide a solid body of knowledge about the Hara.

Knowledge about the Hara is elusive. Even though it’s an ancient tradition and way of life in the Far East, finding a book or basic information about it is difficult. The Hara is included in several healing and martial arts and robust meditation teachings.

Here’s what you’ll find in The Story of the Hara:

  • Introduction: What is the Hara?
  • The Story of the Hara
  • Physical Attributes of the Hara
  • Mental Attributes of the Hara
  • Meditation Attributes of the Hara
  • Ki: Universal and Personal Energy
  • How the Hara and Ki are Linked
  • The Breath and the Hara
  • The Vertical Hara Line
  • The Past, Present and Future
  • Hara Practices and Methods
  • Locating Your Hara
  • The Natural Breath
  • Remembering the Natural Breath
  • Hara Defining Exercise
  • Golden Hara Meditation

Written in simple language and in a practical way, The Story of the Hara is comprehensive and easy to absorb. Included are links to further reading and learning. I also make myself available to you, as you’ll read in the eBook if you have questions or clarifications are needed.
