Why the “Spiritual Heart” Is Key

Throughout history, many cultures and spiritual practices have emphasized the importance of following our heart, listening to our heart, and gaining wisdom and intelligence from our heart. This is not a coincidence.

When we speak of the “heart” we are not referring to the physical organ but our spiritual heart. While this may be a new concept for some, it is analogous to the mind. While the brain is clearly physical in nature, the existence of the mind as a form of consciousness is universally accepted even though it cannot be detected on an MRI.

Similarly, our spiritual heart embodies a level of consciousness unto itself. More importantly, it is the center of and the key to our deepest fulfillment and the doorway to experiencing profound peace, gratitude, joy, safety, and unconditional love.

The Heart is Universal and Non-denominational

We believe that our connection to our spiritual heart transcends belief systems and cultures. At the core of every being is a deep need to feel profoundly safe and unconditionally loved. Heart Based Therapeutics® offers a non-denominational, spiritual vocabulary that bridges belief systems to enhance True Heart Feelings.  

Even participants who consider themselves agnostic or atheist are frequently able to experience positive heart feelings that enhance the quality of relationships, meaning and purpose in life.

Heart-Mind Alignment

Most of us respond to the world through our mind. We believe that while our mind is a beautiful gift, it is not the core of who we really are. 

The mind is not only limited by its ability to grasp certain concepts, it can be emotionally reactive and clouded by subjectivity in ways we may not even be aware of.

When our mind is overly dominant it can come up with all kinds of creative excuses to justify our negative emotions and reactivity as well as our self-critical judgments and those of others. All sorts of problems including stress, burnout, negative attitudes, unforgiveness, and communication and relationship issues surface when our mind is stubbornly in charge.

In order to experience heart-mind alignment and its many benefits, Heart Based Therapeutics provides a proven-effective protocol, for responsive heart-centered living and working, allowing our mind to become an ally carrying out the wisdom of our heart.

Reframing to a Heart Based Perspective

While we are taught from a very young age how to develop our mind, educational and spiritual institutions rarely (if ever) show us how to use and strengthen our spiritual heart. And it this this process, nurturing our key connection, that supports us in living a well-balanced and fulfilled life.

Through our groundbreaking, experiential programs we teach a wide variety of professionals how to:

  • relax properly and become more grounded in their bodies
  • recognize and let go of self-defeating patterns
  • connect to and strengthen their connection to their spiritual heart
  • reduce stress and become more resilient
  • use their heart in listening to and communicating with others
  • resolve trauma in therapeutic settings and conflict within teams/organizations
  • allow innate heart wisdom to guide decisions
