Our Heart Based Approach
The core tenet of the Open Heart program is that our deepest knowing, our deepest connections, and our deepest, most fulfilling experiences in life are accessed through our heart.
The origins of Open Heart 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.
The Open Heart approach allows participants to personally experience the connection to their spiritual heart in a unique and profound way. Through the process of connecting to and opening their heart, participants can find meaning, authenticity, 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.
