An Opening of the Heart

This workshop is designed to help individuals shift the center of their consciousness from the mind to the heart. Our minds have been programmed throughout the course of our lives by our parents, teachers, society, culture, and religions to perform and belief in certain ways, infusing the truth with belief systems that may or may not be true. The heart, however, contains a wisdom that was “programmed at the factory.” This innate wisdom can be accessed through the quieting of the mind and the opening of the heart. The opening of the heart helps to reveal a deep love that is unconditional in its nature. The purity of this love has the potential to not only heal ones self but also to heal others. As the spiritual heart opens, it entrains the rhythm of the physical heart to a coherent state that affects every organ and gland in the body. One’s entire physiology can be transformed to a state of being that promotes relaxation and optimal health.

Using lecture, guided meditation, and hands-on healing, participants will have an opportunity to explore the divine gifts within their hearts. This four week class is designed to explore the soul of the heart and its divine qualities. The work is based on the mystical teaching of the Sufis. This class is useful for personal and spiritual growth as well as the transformation of interpersonal relationships.

Heart Meditation: A Tonic for Burnout

Those of us that help others often find ourselves depleted, tired, and "burned out". How do we find the energy to continue and return to the place of fulfillment from our work? Many have come to the service professions answering a call from the heart. So it should come as no surprise that the tonic to burn out is also found in the heart.

In this workshop, you will learn tried and true meditation techniques that can help you to nurture your body, mind, and spirit.

This workshop is designed for those that care for others: nurses, physical therapists, hospice workers, massage therapists, counselors, and therapists. It is experiential in nature and through lecture and guided meditations, you will learn how to cultivate the qualities of the heart and share them with others. Both you and those you care for will benefit from tapping the secret and sacred qualities of the heart.
