Introducing- Wide Open Heart Project On The Road

Bringing women together in community, teaching others about the heart chakra and how we can all live a more heart-centered life, brings me so much joy.   The Wide Open Heart Project was created out of a need and desire to share what I learned on my own healing journey.  The evergreen tools I teach at each of our workshops and retreats are holistic and immediately accessible to our attendees.  There is no magic potion.  Just the empowerment that arrives with the knowledge acquired when one is able to become aware, slow down, be present and go inward to explore our interior castles.  The heart within you is waiting for your attention!  Open up to its many gifts and wisdom.

“This magnificent refuge is inside you. Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway. Step around the poisonous vipers that slither at your feet, attempting to throw you off your course. Be bold. Be humble. Put away the incense and forget the incantations they taught you. Ask no permission from the authorities. Slip away. Close your eyes and follow your breath to the still place that leads to the invisible path that leads you home.”
Mirabai Starr, The Interior Castle (as interpreted from St. Terese of Avila)

Over the last year, I’ve been asked to host individual classes or small groups of friends who prefer privacy and discreet retreats within their homes or businesses.   I am happy to announce a new offering available starting March 1st….Wide Open Heart Project On The Road.   Each 3 hour workshop will include our heart chakra fundamentals class, covering reiki, loving-kindness meditation, journaling exercises, ending with a despacho ceremony.   I will encourage a roundtable discussion within the group to release what no longer serves the individuals attending.    I am available to travel within the state of Ohio (more states coming soon!!)… all materials, lessons and experiences will be led by Michele for this offering.
