innerquest

   The innerquest process has change a bit so I wanted to let folks know what we are doing at this point. Keith and I are continuing to offer the non-residential component of iq through The HART Center as always. We offer a wide array of recovery services for those who are seeking a deeper meaning to their lives.

     innerquest includes all of the processes that we have offered throughout the years. HART Work and trance movement happens more often with those in iq. There is group therapy that offers folks an opportunity to really delve into their life experience gathering clarity and understanding to go clear. We are including three-day intensives like grief release, child-within/adult without, rage release, mask making and other events that are truly amazing methods for tapping into emotional spiritual physical imbalances to attain balance in these areas.

     Grief Release is a powerful experience that we learned from Melidoma and Sobonfu Some. We begin it with HART Work and move into co-creating a sacred space by building a portal to carry the grief of a lifetime back to Source. Accompanying this is drumming and singing. It is an incredible release experience. Child Within-Adult Without is another three day event that moves you through your lifetime experience to tap into imprints that have caught you in your automatic response system. Moving beyond that into recognizing who you are and becoming embodies spirit is a phenomenal way to access that unsuspected inner resource that folks talk about in recovery. Rage Release is an opportunity that allows you to access all the inner turmoil that leaks out in your life experience as anger. This cathartic experience leaves you free and clear to release your pent up anger in a healthy and controlled way. Mask Making is another inner journey that helps you access your internal process in order to begin matching the inner to the outer and the outer to the inner. You will actually make a mask of your own face and decorate it to represent your inner process. HART Work is a 6 hour experience where you lie on a sleeping bag or mat for a while listening to music, aligning your chakras, or energy centers, to fabulous music then capture the experience with art supplies. Trance Movement offers you a chance to trust the process by moving to driving music while blindfolded. HART DANCE involves meditation, breath, movement, art and process work to carry you into an internal journey. Spirit Dance is a very focused process that helps you learn to move your body when you build the energy through yoga and music. You learn specific moves that will help you access unbelievable levels of awareness within yourself.

     This is some of the experiential events we offer at The HART Center through the innerquest process. We have discovered that being involved with an ongoing group is a wonderful way to build support as you delve into your life experience. We hope that you will join us for these and many more opportunities to explore your inner journey.
