Power of the Heart
Do you long for greater aliveness, connection and creativity in your life? Do you sometimes feel that genuine joy evades you, or that heavier emotions drag you down? Or would you simply like your feelings to be a source of empowerment, strength and wisdom in your day-to-day life?
The key to a full, vibrant and joyful life is to connect with the power of the heart. According to studies by the HeartMath Institute, our hearts generate an electromagnetic field up to 5,000 times greater in strength than that of our brains. However, although we live our lives within our heart’s energetic field, many of us do not know how to consciously dance with it.
In Power of the Heart you will learn how to connect with the energy field of your heart by exploring and befriending your emotions through conscious dance practice. As you discover how to feel and move through the full range of your emotions, you will begin to strengthen your compassionate witness. This in turn will enhance your capacity to allow powerful feelings without being overwhelmed by them.
When we embrace the strength and vulnerability of our feelings in this way, we discover that all emotions, whatever their hue, offer us a potent source of passion and energy, and can provide a gateway to greater courage, awareness and love.
