This workshop is an introduction to Whole Heart Connection practices and is open to new students who have not taken any other Whole Heart Connection workshops.
What does it mean to “speak from the heart”? In the context of Whole Heart Connection, it has very little to do with the words themselves; it’s about communicating in such a way that our voice is carrying the vibration of the heart. This is what we call Heart Voice. There’s a distinct feeling that comes when somebody speaks from the heart, as opposed to the head or anywhere else.
What better place to practice speaking from the heart than in a group of people all joyously fumbling together and learning the practical experience of speaking from the heart?
Warning: One of the side effects of speaking from the heart is an inexplicable, unexplainable joy. Come find out, and see how it translates out into your life. There may be relationships that go very differently once you start speaking in Heart Voice.
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.
