β€œThe ear is only a petal that grows from the heart, When we hear each other, it all becomes a garden.”
– Mark Nepo

The Open Heart Series explores how a compassionate spirit coupled with nonviolent communication principles can transform our lives. These experiential training have defined structures for the mind, feelings exploration for the heart, and kinesthetic activities for the body.

This integration of mind, heart, and body, held in compassionate awareness, is designed to produce a sense of wholeness where we are able to welcome who we are unconditionally and experience our totality. We then recognize our kinship with others; our relationships and quality of life deepens, and aliveness burns brightly within the present moment.

Deep Listening:
The transformative power of empathy.

Illuminate your deepest desires and motivations.
Develop intimate connection in relationships.
Explore the power of silence.

Often we focus so deeply on our own perspective that we are blind to what others are experiencing. Sometimes we are so unaware of how we impact others, it is as if they are not even there and our relationships lack warmth and connection. We become so enmeshed in trying to figure out what to do that we live in a world of calculation instead of compassion.

Compassion evokes presence. Presence is rooted in listening, and listening resides in silence. Before we process an experience, there is silence: we must inhale before we can speak. Listening creates spaciousness in our lives by bringing our attention to the silence, by noticing the inhale. We can use this spaciousness to cultivate connection, to consider the impact our actions have, to become clear on what we want to express.

Listening invites the world in and enables us to respond to in the present rather than filtering our perception through past trauma, or fretting about future consequences. Listening invites us to be a deliberate part of the heartbeat of life. Now.
