If you have not yet attended an online Whole Heart Connection workshop, join me for Taking Heart at 11:00 a.m.

Making Connections

The healthy healing of pain takes place in the context of a heart that is open and present, connected to the Big Heart, and a self that is aligned between heaven and earth. This is a healing state; when we are in a healing state, healing happens naturally. We do not have to make it happen.

Often, however, despite being in significant amounts of pain, we are not in a healing state. We may have lost heart. We may have lost our connection to heaven and earth. We may be trapped in secondary causes of harm, or opportunistic infections. Some of this may be unconsciously self-inflicted.

Often our first response to pain, in ourselves or in others, is to “make it stop”  i.e. coping or management. Healing does not happen—cannot happen—while we are in a coping response to pain. We refer to these as “non-healing states.”

In this class, we will explore some of the most common non-healing states, and the most common ways to shift them.

Taking Heart

If it’s been a hard month, and you want a chance to re-immerse in heart space in order to take heart again, please join us for our monthly Taking Heart gathering.

Or, if you want a brief review of how Whole Heart Connection skills translate into an online context before signing up for other classes, join us for this short and sweet review of the basic practices. Then after a break, come join us for the Making Connections class.  Learn more here.

I feel like studying with Thea Elijah opened my heart up to a deep belief of the universal love underneath the surface even under very traumatic experiences and old painful ways of being. This opening has led me to continue my own spiritual journey, but I know that her teachings opened the door for me to walk towards deeper peace after a lifetime of anxiety.

This has effected all aspects of my life. I feel like my parenting is more grounded and I am able to access guidance for my children more easily. I am able to hold the love for my children without as easily slipping into fear (which was my M.O.).

It has helped me to hold challenging people in my life with more understanding and forgiveness, while also learning how to stand more deeply in my truth and my boundaries. It has helped me find and begin to heal the places in my heart holding shame, guilt, grief, anger at myself and others and begin to turn my heart towards love and healing.

Whole Heart Connection for Personal and Social Healing

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.

Perennial Medicine’s Commitment to Social Justice

At Perennial Medicine, we are committed to addressing the roots and manifestations of socially constructed power imbalances without shaming, blaming, or oversimplification. We understand that social justice is a very complex topic, and we welcome people who are at different stages of exploring all the ways that we might create a more fair and equitable world together.
