• From Head Strong to Heart Smart

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

The world demands we use our brains a LOT. We plan, organise and strategise. Our minds do an incredible job of keeping us safe, keeping us learning, keeping us active and keeping us growing. And yet we know that’s not the whole story

When we over-rely on the mind we can find ourselves

  • Spending a lot of time analysing, ruminating, assessing or intellectualising but not always act on what we think
  • Tired, so tired of the mind always whirring but not knowing how to stop it.
  • Struggling with meditation even though we know it might help.
  • Being a bit overly serious, all the time.
  • Feeling a a bit overwhelmed by our emotional needs in unhelpful ways (hello fridge/scrolling/new project/helping others).
  • Feeling disconnected from ourselves and our intuition, our wider wisdom.
  • Feeling distracted.
  • Feeling disconnected from others.

There are communities on this earth that believe we have three brains one in the head (the analytical brain), one in the heart (the compassionate brain) and one in the gut (the intuitive brain) all of which are important in navigating life.

And more simply most of us know that when we spend time dropping out of our head and into our bodies a bit more we feel  calmer, more present, better able to know what we need and express ourselves and usually make different decisions.

Yet how often do we practice that or feel supported to do that?

It can be hard to know how best to do anything about all of that when we are so in the habit of analysing everything with our mind and it is not making us feel any better, calmer or more capable.

I think we have two choices, we can either:

A) continue to muddle and manage around the parts of life we find hard, continue listening to the mind and its messages – totally an option.

B) learn to bring more of ourself than just our mind to the business of life.

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 noisy dancefloor you may already recognise what option B can bring you.

Embodiment coaching and this programme focuses on supporting you, your mind and your nervous system to explore the wider wisdom available to you. It can help you understand yourself more deeply and access a broader range of responses than the mind might offer.

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

So…

)) If your current mind-centric approach is not no longer working the way you would like.

)) If your intellect is not making you feel free or present.

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

)) If you want to have more access to knowing what you need and to become better at expressing that.

)) If you are ready to step outside your comfort zone and access more potent knowledge than your mind can muster.

Or if you are done with Option A and are ready to try something different or if you just have an inkling, a bit of curiosity that this might be a helpful programme.

Then come on in and read the details to see if this programme 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.

Questions

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
– movement
– sound healing
– breathwork
– amanae (emotional release techniques)
– energy work
– the group dynamic

And there will be 5 online circles sharing practices and exploring this work together AND 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 calls taking place on Thursdays at times that work for those who sign up.

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 gatherings 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.
