Healing Ourselves, Healing Our Communities, Healing Our Planet

Whole Heart Connection is a set of body-based awareness practices designed to help us to shift our own internal states, such that we are able to connect with the best in ourselves, with the best in others, and with the source of creative insight.

Right now is a time when we need to be at our most clear and most strong, so that we can reach out to each other and create connections that will serve everyone’s health—especially the health of our planet.

Whole Heart Connection is a set of tools for mutual empowerment, and for holding non-violent core alignment in conflictual situations. The body-based nature of these practices makes them ideal for becoming conscious of, and clearing, unconscious embodied racism and sexism, including internalized racism and sexism.

These are tools for fostering equality even in the midst of social power imbalance, and for becoming effective agents of social change without courting burn-out. In fact, Whole Heart Connection will do more for your health than you would have believed possible in such difficult times.

Whole Heart Connection practices draw upon aikido, Chinese medicine, and Sufism, all of which teach us that healthy change takes place on a me-first basis. Our goal is the well-being of entire communities, and so we are committed to fostering personal health every step of the way. There is no division between being an activist and taking care of ourselves.

Course Objectives

  • • Students will understand the term “medicine without form” in the context of Chinese medicine (wu xing shi yao tradition of healing)
  • • Students will understand the term “medicine without form” as a perennial aspect of many traditional healing modalities
  • • Students will understand and experience the difference—in themselves and in classmates—between mind, emotions, and Heart
  • • Students will learn to connect from the Heart (vs. mind or emotions)
  • • Students will learn to transmit Heart to Heart non-invasively
