You can meditate to cleanse your mind, you can set goals to achieve, you can eat clean, and optimize your sleep—all of which are parts of awake living. But in order to tap your true power, you will, eventually, have to go through the heart. It's messy. And liberating.
With accounts of self-help adventures gone wrong and breakthroughs that made it all right, Danielle LaPorte cheer-leads all Seekers to find a feelings-based approach to intentionally creating our lives. The eventual realization is that with your heart intelligence you become your own guru—interdependent with the Divine Intelligence, and everyone else making it up as they go. In the heart is the that pain we avoid, and the medicine for our suffering. It's where our humanness meets our holiness. And with sincerity and willingness, it's where we meet each other to heal ourselves and the planet that's been so generous with us.
90 minutes with Danielle is like getting a sermon from a comedian who speaks about spiritual devotion with total practically. It's about keeping it very real on our spiritual paths.
This will be a highly interactive Q&A experience—mostly improv. So bring your gorgeous, broken, powerful, hungry hearts and we'll tap into some wisdom by having a good laugh, and maybe a good cry, at all the ways we get lost to get back home... where the heart is.
