What is Heart Mapping?

Heart Mapping is an integrative, step-by-step process for moving through life's challenges that will clear the path to your fullest potential and higher purpose. Heart Mapping blends mysticism, biology, and neuroscience, but it's an interactive, immediately "doable" process that anyone can learn. In this 90-minute workshop, you'll learn what it means to live in today's world when your body was built with a 500-million-year-old nervous system, and how to give yourself regular upgrades. It's all about returning your body, brain, and heart — the “gateway to the soul” — to its natural state of connection and love so that you can get back to doing the brilliant things you came here to do.

Here's what happens in this interactive live workshop:

  • Learn what it means to live in today’s world when your body was built with a 500-million-year-old nervous system.

  • Actively engage in an immediately "doable" process that can be used to shift your brain when you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, hopeless, angry, or (fill-in-the-blank).

  • Understand the role of “spiritual bypassing” in getting stuck.

  • Receive a downloadable Heart Mapping workbook.

  • Get crafty! This is a workshop, not a lecture, so bring coloring tools, paper, and scissors, and be open to having some fun while we work through hard things.

“We are never more in touch with life than when life is painful, never more in touch with hope than we are then." — Frederick Buechner
