Living through the heart is not a metaphor.
It is the way of life that makes being on earth an adventure of learning, healing and service.



The Essential Light programs are designed for those who are making the commitment to live a more grounded, useful, abundant, spirit-guided life, and who understand the opportunity for self-transformation that the commitment invites and demands. The central purpose of Heart Camp is to support each other in letting go of whatever is impeding us in making and maintaining conscious contact with our hearts, in replacing those past hurts and beliefs with the living force of light, and in bringing the new awareness and change into our daily lives. And we have a lot of fun too!

Here’s what Jonathan says about Heart Camp:

Check it out. We get to spend four days together in the forest or at the farm, with a lake (at the farm there is a little stream) and a campfire and excellent organic food prepared by our excellent organic chef. And then we get to breathe together, meditate together, yoga together, laugh together, sing together, do art projects, heal together and have the deep prayer that each of us will make for our transformation and next steps in our awakening be answered in unexpected ways. All as we learn to connect more deeply and consciously with Light. All this occurs from the co-creation of what we are calling the Community of Compassion. This circle of the heart serves both as the practical, safe container for the deep work (and fun) we will do in these days, but also as a laboratory for the spiritual job of taking the space of the heart and the calling of Light into our day-to-day lives.

How cool is that? Hope to see you there,
