Program Details
The Opening the Heart Workshop provides such a safe, gentle, supportive, and loving environment for anyone who is grieving a loss. We believe Elisabeth would applaud this professional yet heartfelt approach to healing from grief.
—Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Foundation

The Opening the Heart (OTH) philosophy recognizes that true health is based on a holistic model that includes mind, body, and spirit. Drawing on a unique blend of contemporary Positive Psychology and ancient wisdom traditions, you engage the body’s natural energies in exercises designed to help you

  • Heal past trauma
  • Work through blocked emotions
  • Disentangle from the past and reconnect with core truths
  • Learn to live more fully from the heart.

Exploring deep areas of the self requires the security of a safe environment, in which participants receive respectful, loving, individual attention. The leaders of the OTH workshop have many years of experience in providing these essentials.

Note A questionnaire from the OTH faculty will be sent with your confirmation and needs to be returned prior to the program.
