Heart Based Therapeutics®

Rooted in Evidence-Based Practices

The core tenet of Heart Based Therapeutics is that our deepest knowing, our deepest connections, and our deepest, most fulfilling experiences in life are accessed through our heart.

The origins of Heart Based Therapeutics are multicultural and date back thousands of years. Most cultures can find historical context indicating the importance of following our heart, listening to our heart, speaking from our heart, or knowing the truth in the core of our heart. These phrases have survived the test of time because they ring true to the deepest part of our authentic selves. Yet despite this innate and pervasive knowledge about the importance of our heart, most approaches emphasize that the key to the personal growth process is through the doorway of the mind.

Heart Based Therapeutics combines psychological theory with an experiential learning process that engages participants in an exploration of meaning, authenticity, relationship, gratitude, happiness, fulfillment, and personal and spiritual growth.

Positive change begins with a systematic approach to learning to relax and naturally enjoy the positive feelings of the heart. This provides the foundation for allowing the heart and mind to come into proper alignment  a state in which profound transformation can take place – facilitating the healing of emotional reactivity patterns, unresolved issues and trauma.

Our Heart Based Therapeutics program provides human service providers and business professionals with a practical, effective and uniquely enjoyable heart based approach to:

  • reduce stress, burnout and compassion fatigue;
  • enhance resilience, joy and gratitude;
  • improve the quality of interpersonal relationships; and
  • improve professional efficacy and therapeutic outcomes.

Being Guided by Innate Heart Intelligence

We’ve all heard about the importance of listening to our heart and being guided by its wisdom and intelligence. However, our educational experiences have typically encouraged and trained us to cultivate and strengthen our mind rather than our heart. We have never been taught how to naturally connect with our heart and experience the many ways our heart can directly support us in enhancing every aspect of our daily lives. Heart Based Therapeutics provides a unique opportunity to learn how to incorporate heart intelligence with brain intelligence to enhance interpersonal skills, which are necessary for effectively interacting with others and building whole person systems.

The Role of the Heart in Whole Person Care

Instead of focusing on problems or symptoms, caring for the whole person nourishes the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of a person’s life. Whole Person Care is not a technique – it is a state of being that the practitioner experiences. Deeper experiences of heart-mind alignment and being guided by innate heart wisdom allows whole person caring to be a natural expression of our being while significantly reducing stress and negative emotions.
