WHAT TO EXPECT
At the Heart Sanctuary you can expect an intuitive approach to help you quiet your mind, discover the needs your emotions are pointing to, learn to relax and release heavy energy and acquire tools to help you reconnect with your Heart.
During your free virtual 30-minute Heart Session, I will ask you some questions, make observations and offer reflections aimed at helping you make sense of your current challenges.
A unique combination of healing practices and concepts, that I have personally found beneficial, will then be recommended. These are designed to identify and dissolve the barriers that keep you feeling disconnected and affect your capacity to listen to your Heart. The main cause of this disconnection can often be traced back to a need for more Compassionate Awareness.
The beautiful paradox is that when we put in the effort to cultivate and demonstrate compassion for ourselves and for others, we are also creating better conditions for the natural radiance of compassion - our True Nature - to reveal itself. That's when the effort disappears and all that remains is exactly that Compassionate Awareness that we seek!
