Through guided moving meditation, reflective exercises, and heartfelt group discussions, you'll uncover the profound beauty and healing potential of this often misunderstood emotion.

Whether you're seeking to deepen your understanding of your own sadness or simply longing for a supportive community to share your journey, this workshop warmly welcomes all who seek to embrace their emotions with gentleness and acceptance.

Join us as we embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. Secure your place today and take the first step towards fostering a more compassionate relationship with your emotions.

In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
