• From Head Strong to Heart Smart

    Listen to your heart (your wisest teacher) and bring some balance to your brain

Sometimes we rely on our minds so much that the rest of our whole humanness – our emotional intelligence, our powerful vulnerability and our deeper wisdom – gets sidelined.

We all know what it’s like to be up in our heads a lot don’t we? And it’s not that the mind is not a powerful part of us. How else could we plan, analyse, organise and explore the intellect, and yet…

When we over-rely on the mind we can

  • have this sense that something is missing
  • feeling a bit disconnected from ourselves
  • struggle to make decisions
  • find it hard to figure out what might be intuition/deeper wisdom and what is our fear talking
  • feel a bit unsure how to be with our emotions
  • or end up a bit overwhelmed by our emotions or meeting their needs in unhelpful ways (hello fridge/scrolling/new project/helping others).
  • find ourselves being a bit overly serious all the time
  • find it hard to navigate relationships
  • feel a bit disconnected from others.

And we, know don’t, that is is NOT a state we want to hang out in forever and we would quite like to find ways of sorting it out.

Yet how often do feel supported to do that?

It can be hard to know where to start when we are so in the habit of analysing everything with our mind and we realise it is not making us feel any better, calmer or more connected.

If you have ever spent time dropping out of the mind and into the body for example in a yoga class, on a good walk or on a dancefloor you may already recognise that the rest of the body could have something to offer.

Embodiment work (connecting to the body through movement, breath, exploration, imagination and coming together in community) can create the space for us to experience and understand more of ourselves in a supported way and and access a broader range of responses than the mind might offer.

“I am more willing to accept that the heart (and emotions generally) can have a positive and important role to play in my life, rather than just being something to be ‘dealt with’ or ‘processed’.

Head Strong to Heart Smart is a fascinating, caring, transformative experience which can open your heart and introduce you to a new way of experiencing life”           – Carole, UK

AND it is a lot easier to do this work when we do it together.

)) If you would like to have more access to your deeper wisdom so you can use it in everyday life

)) If you want to spend time exploring what you really need and become better at expressing that.

)) If you want to be a more connected leader, lover, mother, brother, sister, son or daughter, friend or colleague.

)) If you are ready access more potent knowledge than your mind can muster.

)) or if you just have an inkling, a bit of curiosity that this might be a helpful programme for you,

Then come on in and read the details to see if Head Strong to Heart Smart is a fit for you.

What is Head Strong to Heart Smart?

This month-long programme will support you with diving deep into your heart, your wisest teacher.

We will practice a myriad techniques for tuning into your heart, your most compassionate ‘brain’.

We will use embodied coaching, sound, breath, movement, touch, energywork and amanae along with sharing practices to tap into the hearts wisdom, to connect to how it feels and to open into any wisdom it holds.

You will be supported to explore and express what this part of you wants and needs in your own way. To find your own truth here.

We will work in circle to support one another to trust that the heart is as important as the mind in navigating this life and that the union of the two can create an unstoppable force.

At the end of the programme you will be able to feel a strong connection with your heart space and will know how to connect your heart with your head in your daily life.

You will have discovered a more potent set of knowledge about yourself to help inform your choices in life.

You will have expanded your emotional literacy, be better able to foreground and allow or manage your emotional waves.

You will learn how to be around your own and others emotions and find more freedom and embodiment in your day to day life and expression.

Online Group Programme  (with optional one to one sessions)

Next Programme Begins – 13th May 2021.

Programme Length: one month (New moon to New moon)
Investment: €160
All Bursary Places now taken, Payment Plan available – please email Cat


What will the programme entail?

We will do individual work and work in pairs and with the whole group circle.

To fuel our exploration of our hearts, we will use:

– intention setting
– meditation (the kind you can, not the kind that makes you feel more distracted)
– movement (simple, accessible movement of the body)
– sound
– breathwork
– amanae (emotional release techniques)
– energy work
– the group dynamic

And there will be 5 online circles in which we explore the practices and talk about our experience together AND a closed facebook group so you can keep working through what comes up in your own time.

What else do I need to know?

The programme is one month long with each of the 5 group online circles taking place live on Thursdays at times that work for those who sign up and available as recordings to access for the duration of the programme.

Payment can be made via the Booking Form (card payment or paypal) above.

There will be some gentle movement as part of the practice, adaptable for all needs.

You will need to let me know if you have any medical requirements.

Due to the nature of the work it is recommended (but not mandatory) that you don’t plan anything too hectic for after the weekly online circles so you can be gentle with yourself as you process what you have experienced.

Everything will be available on replay in the Private Facebook group (unless I find a better place for us to gather) if you can’t make the calls live.
