Coming Winter 2018
Science is confirming what we have sensed all along – that the messages coming from our heart are full of wisdom and grace. Messages from the mystical, intelligent heart bring the sacred that is within all of us out into the world, empowering and enriching everyone and everything, including ourselves. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be hosting a new online workshop entitled, “MATTERS OF THE HEART,” starting in November.
From the beginning of time, the heart has been considered the “seat of the soul,” the source of love, wisdom, compassion, generosity and kindness (The Heartmath Solution, by Doc Childre). Intuitive messages and directives are channeled through the heart. Vibrational messages emanating from the heart chakra have the potential to open and heal the heart of the recipient.
Many qualities of the heart and the heart chakra will be studied and explored through readings, practices, exercises and inquiries. Your happiness, joy and fulfillment will increase and be more easily accessible. You will develop a deeper connection with your heart, emotions, intuition, and your Authentic Self.
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in our world. More people die of heart disease in the United States than all of the cancers combined. What is the source of the “dis-ease” that is killing our hearts? What does this amazing, sensitive, organ want and need in order to thrive and support us throughout our lifetime? This is the focus of the “MATTERS OF THE HEART WORKSHOP.”
Recent research reveals that learning how to listen to the heart center enables one to manage emotions, reduce stress, anxiety, and suffering. Collaborating with this powerhouse by intentionally evoking feelings of love, compassion, gratitude, and happiness slows the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases brain function, the production of anti-stress hormones, and immune responses, creating a sense of well-being can be felt in every cell of the body.
We’ll Explore Four Aspects of the Heart
Research has shown that the heart has an intelligence of its own. You will practice and several different exercises to tap into this heart energy, and use it to connect with your intuition, manage your emotions and inform your decisions.
To be aware of your emotions, when you are feeling them, where you are feeling them in your body, and to have the maturity to choose how to express them is called “Emotional Intelligence.” Emotions put you “in motion”, motivating a deeper inquiry into the source of the emotion (a story or belief), and an exploration of how that emotion can be better understood and managed.
The heart makes wise decisions based on the information coming from the intuition. You will explore and build your intuitive muscle.
Based on Angeles Arrien’s “Four Chambered Heart,” you’ll explore the qualities of:
THE OPEN HEART versus THE CLOSED HEART
THE FULL HEART versus HALF-HEARTEDNESS
THE STRONG HEART versus THE WEAK HEART
THE CLEAR HEART versus THE CONFUSED HEART
