6:30-8:00 pm

Free Will Love Offering

This high quality introduction to “The Power of the Heart” provides the space for each person in attendance to experience the generative and creative power of connecting with their deep heart. At least three things will likely take place: – You’ll experience and/or re-establish a palpable flow of connection with the power and wisdom of your heartspace. – You’ll be able to take with you simple, but very effective practices to truly begin to dismantle your personal fears. – You’ll begin to remember (in case you’ve forgotten) why the power and wisdom of the heart (not the mind) is uniquely designed to lead you skillfully through the complexities of life as well as empower and reawaken your faculties, talents, and visions.
