Aligning Head and Heart
As we bow to the wisdom of our own Heart we become available to universal knowledge. In this course we explore the timeless wisdom of Yogic and Chinese philosophies which offer us simple ways of encouraging the mind to serve the Heart as the sovereign ruler of our lives. We will draw on cross-culturally researched ways of being which people all around the world use to anchor in the Heart – our universal home of Love and happiness. In a step by step enquiry we examine six principles which help reveal and access the deep knowing of an awakened Heart spirit.
This highly interactive light-hearted workshop is in-depth inquiry into how to engage your Heart as the leader of your life. Attuning to this magnificent presence gives us the courage to live expanded lives aligned with our Soul potential. Heart centred living naturally enriches our relationships and helps us reconnect to the joy and love that lives within us all. At the conclusion of this workshop you will take-home simple, teachable skills which can help you and others engage with the Queen of your being – your Heart spirit.
Day 1 introduces Qigong & meridian stretches which open the energetic pathways to help anchor an embodied sense of the Hearts presence in our lives. These simple practices free-flow our energy and balance the connections to the Hearts internal and external organs – including the subtle sensory systems. We practice using mudras – traditional hand positions – to help open the heart and support the circulatory flows of blood and love.
Using examples from your life we begin the practice of aligning the everyday thinking mind with the overarching intelligence of life itself. We explore how to engage the potent power of intention as the steering wheel of awareness. This first day introduces the Heart as:
- Queen/King of our Being
- Our link to Divine Awareness
- Mother of the mind.
Day 2 focus of workshop is relationships. Using guided contemplation, Yoga Nidra practice and interactive partner work, we explore the Heart and her influences on our relationship to Self and other. These practices reveal the instinctive wisdom of our Hearts knowing to help bring to light true nature. Day 2 assists the head and Heart alignment by:
- Exploring the Heart as the Doorway to Love
- Clarifying the Heart’s role as a bridge between worlds; Self and other, spirit and form
- Engaging Heart-felt knowing to guide us in how to show up in appropriate ways in relationships
To encourage alignment with a larger sense of Self and more real and loving relationships with ourselves and others.
