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

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.
