Nurturing Your Heart’s Vision with Linda Marks: Vision lives in the heart and grows when we create a safe, silent space to listen and follow their guidance. This workshop will be an experiential journey, exploring your heart's vision and ways to move towards realizing that vision in your life. Reflect on what really matters to you - your heart's desires, and learn concrete steps you can take to make its desires come true.
The Community As Healer: In this workshop, we create a safe, sacred healing environment using the power of our hearts. The heart has the strongest electromagnetic field in the body, so when we bring our hearts together, we create a collective heart field. When anyone has a turn, everyone has a turn. Learn how emotional feelings and body sensations and tensions help us access our intuition, and provide information about what we really need. A knot in the stomach, a headache or tightness in the chest has important information to give us if we can learn to translate the body's language into terms we can understand.
The Power Of Voice: What does it mean to have a voice? How do you find your true voice? Voice originates in the spirit and soul. When we "have a voice" we have a pathway to express who we truly are, what matters to us, and to touch others in our lives. Each one of us has a unique voice, and in today's world, connecting with and then acting from what really matters is deeply needed. This workshop, which will include heart meditations and other experiential exercises, will help us explore voice as a channel for expressing our life energy, to share our internal experience and to use our heart's power in ways that are meaningful to self and others. Being able to connect to and express what is authentic and true for each of us allows us to "find our note" in the collective harmony of life. Each of us has a unique note, that no one else can express. Without your note, the collective harmony is missing something essential.
