Emotional pain takes many forms: the grief of loss, overwhelming stress and anxiety, major or chronic depression, job burnout, feeling stuck or trapped, heart break, lingering guilt, regret, fear of trusting again, pent-up anger, worry about the future, and shame from the past.

In the face of difficulty, most of us do our best to cope with the situation, hold it together, and keep going, but we often end up carrying emotional pain that we don’t know how to heal or release. The toxic residue of painful experiences gets stored in our emotional heart, limiting our ability to give and receive love. If you want to break free from the past and experience emotional freedom, we invite you to join us at the Healing the Heart workshop. In our safe, nurturing setting, you will be guided in the unique five-step healing process developed by Chopra Center co-founder Dr. David Simon that has helped thousands let go of their pain, find freedom from the past, and rediscover joy and fulfillment.

Healing the Heart is led by the Chopra Center's Medical Director, Dr. Tim Brieske, and Trista Thorp, the Certification Program Coordinator of Chopra Center University. Along with other loving members of the Chopra Center staff, they will support and guide you in freeing yourself from the burden of accumulated pain, anger, guilt, and other difficult emotions.

At Healing the Heart, you will experience healing techniques such as guided visualizations, journal writing, and sound therapy that will inspire you to let go of past hurt, forgive yourself and others, and fill the newly opened space in your heart with love, strength, and true fulfillment. 

This is an intensive weekend workshop that allows you to reach deep levels of emotional release and healing in a short amount of time. Whether you’ve recently experienced an upsetting event or loss, or you’ve been carrying the burden of old emotional wounds for many years, Healing the Heart will help you find emotional freedom.

Important Note: Healing the Heart is not an alternative to counseling and/or the therapist that you may already be working with. This is a group healing experience that will involve sharing with other participants. Please be aware that if you have active suicidal intent, homicidal intent or a diagnosis of unstable mental health, this course is not for you.
