An open heart is a gift; so many of us have been broken or traumatized by life’s challenges, and as a result have closed off our hearts to the world. An open heart allows us to care more deeply for ourselves and others, to give back to our community and to be connected to our hearts desires and dreams. This workshop will explore how we can move from a disconnected heart to a more spacious heart that is capable of greater love and more authentic relationships.
