Opening the Heart is a weekend‐intensive workshop that provides a safe and supportive environment for accessing feelings, working through blocked emotions, disentangling from the past, reconnecting with core truths, and learning to live more fully from the heart. Our philosophy recognizes that true health is based on a holistic model that includes mind, body and spirit. OTH draws on a variety of western psychological methods including gestalt, bioenergetics, focusing, and psychodrama. Recognizing that past trauma and abuse are stored in the body at a cellular level‐ OTH engages the body's natural energies in holistic exercises designed to uncover and heal old wounds. Movement and the gentle power of music play major roles, creating a uniquely effective healing experience. Inner transformation lies at the core of all spiritual and wisdom traditions. We use exercises in witnessing, and mindfulness practices drawn from a wide range of those traditions. Though not affiliated to any specific creed or doctrine the workshop embodies a deep respect for the spiritual aspects of our lives. The innate resilience of the human spirit is supported and enhanced by the blend of modern positive psychology and ancient healing wisdom underlying the unique OTH approach. Creating a safe container for the exploration of buried feelings is a primary goal of the workshop leaders. The senior staff each have more than 20 years' experience in facilitating OTH Work. We have had training and many years experience in group dynamics; healing from trauma and grief; and the transformational change process. Confidentiality is a pre‐requisite. The workshop offers a variety of small group and individual exercises that invite participants to explore new methods of self‐discovery and expression. Participants always reserve the right to choose not to join a particular exercise and are completely supported in making choices that are right for them. http://www.openingtheheartworkshop.com/
