Living From The Heart 2022-2023 (Two options: Online or In Person)- Register for Fall 2022

Living from the Heart offers a transformational learning cohort, an extended community experience that invites you into a unique journey from head to heart, beyond performance, achievement, and rational dependence to receptivity, alertness, and trusting openness toward God. This is a journey that deepens, sharpens and enriches your life from the inside out, and introduces you to various contemplative practices that sustain such a life.  Biblically, the heart is the very core of life from where our intentions and character flow into our thinking, feeling, relating and doing. Opening to God’s heart of love with our whole heart, including our broken places, and learning to be attentive and receptive to God’s love brings a truth-filled, healing integration within that frees us to offer our lives in loving compassion and listening companionship to others and creation. This is Living From The Heart.

Offering the option of in person or online, a completed application and application fee may be submitted now.  Applications are received and accepted on a rolling basis.  Final application deadline for the Fall Cohort is July 31st of each year.

The maximum cohort size for this course is 15 participants.

A closing retreat will be held in May of the following year.
