The Opening the Heart Workshop

The Opening the Heart (OTH) philosophy sees true health holistically and uses an approach 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 experiential exercises designed to help you

  • Heal past and present trauma
  • Work through blocked emotions
  •  Reconnect with core truths
  • Deepen self-respect and self-love
  • Learn to live more fully in a heartfelt way.

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