The Journey to the Heart Course

A Life-Changing Journey over 10 months

This course offers the bounty of my 20 years of experience as a practitioner, a group facilitator, a teacher and an ongoing student.

It passes on what I have learned through the incredible privilege of bearing witness to many thousands of deep human journeys.

I've learned that in every presentation of struggle, there is a deep organic intelligence at work. Our internal processes are always trying to align us with who we really are, and always seeking personal balance and wellbeing.

Our culture teaches us that pain is not okay, that when we are in pain, something is wrong. Clearly there are times when that is true - a broken leg hurts a lot and really does need fixing as soon as possible! However there is rarely anything "wrong" within the emotional pain we feel, nor its associated physical symptoms. Our culture tends to be quite phobic about the emotional, spiritual and energetic levels of experience, and we learn that we should find ways to move on and get over ourselves quickly when we feel inner discomfort, or when we are called to revisit the past. Many of us have never learned the intrinsic intelligence of inner process, to stay with our own or another's discomfort for long enough to experience its wisdom. We avoid, over-ride or medicate processes that are trying to re-align us to the truth of who we are.

We are self healing organisms. Not only our physical bodies, but our mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic bodies are constantly doing their best to heal us. When we feel pleasure, discomfort, sadness or joy, that's the internal guidance system communicating with us, showing us our deep selves, and where there's material that wants our attention.

The Journey to the Heart Course teaches what I have affectionately come to name: "The User's Guide to Being Human". It is the map and the guidebook that our parents, teachers and wise elders would have given us if they had had it.

The course is primarily an experiential journey. There are written notes from the "User's Guide" :) and many invitations to discuss the material in service to deeper understanding. And we will use the Breath, the Group Process and the Circle to dive into the mysteries of human-ness. So there are two major text books, the written one being secondary to the Us - the group of humans who come together for the journey. The course's foundation is the creation of a safe space where we can become unusually real with ourselves, where we can be loving witness to each other's journeys, where our combined experiences and our journeys are the most wondrous text book, never written, but known.

This course is also Level 1 of the Practitioner Training in Breathwork and Body Centred Counselling.

There is no expectation that those doing this course will want to become practitioners, but nevertheless, the personal journey is the majority of what is required for those training to be practitioners. Professional practice requires a deep knowing of one's self. Practitioners need to be able to be with themselves, no matter what arises. Then we can sit with others as they journey, with a solid trust in the intelligence of their process.

And as for the purely personal journey, entered with no intention to guide others, we must also learn about other people, about the many ways different people navigate their internal and external lives, about the wounding others have experienced and what effects it has. What we learn within this group environment is a crash course in human-ness of all kinds. We have the opportunity to heal our relationship wounds and to learn to live according to our own truth whilst being in relationship with others.
