What happens when you start to view the world through your heart?

Intermediate EL5[22513].jpg

​Over time we build up barriers and blocks to the heart. Compassionate transformative practices supports the gentle melting away of blocks and barriers.

This course will allow you to  develop an in-depth understanding of transformational insight practices, including healing visualisations, sound & mantra work, energy psychology to create shifts, moon work and heart based meditation for your own development and/or to guide others.

Opening up to more of your true potential. Instead of looking outside for what we need, heart-based meditation brings us strength from within. Moving back to our true nature and awakening the warmth that has always been there. Developing a strong intuitive trust and ability to perceive at a deeper level of insight.

Testimonials

"For me as a trainee psychotherapist, this course has been not just an add-on but a vital (in all senses!) part of both my personal development and my learning as an integrative practitioner. The group work, together with the teaching and weekly exercises, helped me gain confidence in my capacity to work creatively with clients, and to bring my whole self into my work. We covered so much in 8 months on how to put the principles of energy psychology into practice in ritual, working with ritual, sound, mantra, archetypes, visualisation and meditation, bringing in Shamanism, Buddhist compassion practices, emotional focusing and much more. But because of the heart-centred and intuitive way in which Liz leads the course, the content never felt heavy, and everything flowed together. I’ve come away with a new trust in what my body perceives, and a bubbling excitement about what is to come. Would highly recommend to counsellors and psychotherapists at all levels of experience" - Victoria

“I can highly recommend Liz’s Transformation & Heart-based practises diploma. It has really helped me to connect on a deeper more spiritual level enabling me to build on my pre-existing mindfulness practice and supporting me to explore different modalities such as visualisation and archetypes to guide others on their own personal journey of self discovery. Such a warm and welcoming group, I will be forever grateful for this experience. " - Holly 

"The journey of self discovery I have been on has been transformational and has forever altered the course of my life and how I navigate through it. With Liz's guidance and the support of the group I have been able to accelerate growth in my life in the most fulfilling ways. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is open minded and ready to do the work."- Lyndsey
