Peace of My Heart Gathering
September 14, 2021 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am
Explore the human experience through storytelling and a facilitated discussion
Peace of My Heart gatherings are designed to help us connect with our hearts and deepen our insights. By creating a safe space for sharing a “peace of your heart,” we can drop any pretense and be authentic with ourselves and each other. As a result, we can build strength in the community by practicing empathy, courage, and meaningful connection. Research reveals that connecting with our hearts expands our understanding of ourselves and others and can serve as a key to creating a more peaceful path forward.
Given today’s current stresses in the world, we believe that Behavioral Fitness is needed now more than ever. It is the human side of fitness. Through our collective efforts, we can become the change we wish to see in the world.
This should be offered everywhere. Real stories, so relatable. I felt a connection that I didn’t even know I needed. I can’t wait to bring this into my organization. What Dr. Ally & Teri have created here is brilliant.
