Key to the heart

The Workshop

This is an ongoing Heartbeat series that will meet 5 times throughout 2019.

We will take an in-depth dive into the ways emotions move through our sensate bodies.  Throughout 2019, we will spend 2 days on each of the emotions in the 5Rhythms Heartbeat map: Fear, Anger, Sadness, Joy, Compassion.  We will explore how these emotions can be given freedom, and how they can offer great insight and wisdom along our path as a human being.

There are two series scheduled for 2019. The first series is full. There is space in the second series with these dates:

Fear ~ February 3

Anger ~ March 16 & 17

Sadness ~ April 27 & 28

Joy October ~ 13 & 14

Compassion ~ November 22 & 23

This is a cumulative series, each workshop is a prerequisite for the following workshop.

Please email Ann to join the series.
