Who we are,
what we do, and why it works

Spring Hill Lotus in Heart V2_edited.png

Judy and Liz, here are some examples of how we could compromise with two columns instead of three.  The first row has no background

The second row shows each benefit on two different possibilities for the  background. one lighter and one darker

The third row shows each benefit with a border, two different colors are presented - one maroon, one blue.  Also one benefit has no background, the other has a colored background.

 At Opening The Heart, it becomes possible for you to:

“Online or in person, as you take your dive into the heart of self,  you are held with great safety, respect, care and loving presence. I have yet to find another workshop able to reach such profound depth of personal growth".               - Jane B. age 54, Educator

Positive change has been a key hallmark of the Opening the Heart Workshop for 46 years.

Our time-tested, unique blend of practices and traditions reflect our rich heritage, culture  and body-of-knowledge about the heart, emotional healing and one’s capacity for renewal.  

We all long for love; yet, when we have trouble coping or feel hurt by life, our hearts may close in self- protection or our feelings may get the best of us.   Cut off from ourselves and others, we can feel lonely, at an impasse with our relationships and unsure of  how to improve them.

Come to Opening the Heart, where everyone belongs.  You will be welcomed,  just as you are, to a community of acceptance and authenticity - - with others who seek healthy change.  Let our safe and skillful guidance support you in slowing down, turning your attention within, finding your voice, sharing your truth, and listening to others with the “ear of the heart”.  Our empowering, heart-centered modalities serve as a catalyst to help you move forward in ways you might never before have imagined. Whether you experience a subtle yet powerful change, a transformative breakthrough or anything in-between,  you will have  given yourself  the time to tend to your heart and nourish your spirit. 

 “The Opening the Heart Workshop   

          was, by far, the single most impactful,            life-changing experience I’ve had"



Since 1976,  we’ve continually heard that one’s individual experience with OTH, however long ago,  keeps informing  and influencing  positive change and the trajectory of one’s life.  The sentiment shared with us and echoed in these words above is entirely possible for you.

If you seek a community where compassion thrives and want help opening your heart to yourself, others and to all that lies ahead, you may benefit from Opening the Heart in ways that are enduring and unforgettable.
