Heart Sense - Introduction - Level 1
“Louise is a wonderful teacher of heart-felt and embodied methods. Her insightful and engaging research exploring the multi-dimensional wisdom of the heart was very inspiring. In her Heart Sense Groups, Louise guides exercises related to the four aspects of the heart identified in her thesis, and holds a space for meaningful conversations and explorations. Louise’s work emphasises the importance of engaging with the world as a living entity, embodied awareness, and moving beyond a linear perception to feel the underlying interconnectedness of life.”
"What a beautiful class... one of the most thought provoking I've attended. [Louise is] such a natural presenter and made us all feel so safe and welcomed."

LEVEL 1 - INTRODUCTION TO HEART SENSE
with Louise Livingstone, PhD
Personal development course via Zoom: February - April 2024
Six sessions with deep personal work/reflections in between teaching
Mondays 7:30pm - 9pm (UK Time)
Dates: 12th & 26th February, 11th & 25th March, 8th & 22nd April 2024
“It felt spiritually uplifting to be part of your Heart Sense group. It reminded me to balance my perception of the world, through the heart instead of always through the mind. The group felt safe and contained and full of kindness – a lovely retreat from some things that were going on at the time on our planet. Thank you.”
This course will support you to:
Uncover a lost heart, hidden in the past
Discover different layers of the heart - each with its own wisdom and guidance
Develop a way of engaging with these different hearts from within a contemporary framework to enable deep personal transformation
Reveal each heart as a portal/key; enabling the possibility to be present to what is speaking to you - helping you to deepen your understanding of yourself, and yourself in living relationship with the world
Louise defines Heart Sense as "insightful perception and considered discernment regarding daily life developed through the wisdom of, and benevolent qualities associated with, the heart" (Livingstone, 2019). Framed around Louise’s doctoral research, drawing on depth psychology, esoteric wisdom, religious/spiritual philosophy, holistic science and cultural history, these sessions will open you to the many layers of your own heart and offer a platform for your heart to speak its wisdom. Returning to heart is one of the most important actions that any human being can now take to engage wisely and purposefully in the turbulent world that we live in.
All sessions comprise heart-focussed contemplation, personal reflections, theory and contemplative exercises. In between sessions, you are encouraged to keep a journal and develop what Louise calls a 'Heart Dictionary'. It is preferable that you are able to attend in person to gain the most from the experience. Due to the personal development nature of this course and the creation of safe space for personal sharing, sessions do not generally lend themselves to being recorded - however, should you not be able to attend for any reason, the contemplation and teaching parts will be recorded and made available in Dropbox.
This course includes:
All teaching sessions
All course materials and access to dedicated course folder in Dropbox
Discounted future mentoring sessions
Direct access to Louise's four decades of deep work with her own heart, and all the teachings received in conversation with her heart, as well as conversations with her heart taking place in real-time.
Benefit of Louise's many decades of coaching and mentoring experience and expertise - with individuals and groups
Following this course you will be eligible to attend monthly Heart Sense in Action Groups (taking place on last Thursday of the month), and open the possibility to move onto the Heart Sense level two apprenticeship programme
Dates & programme:
Week one: overview, creating the platform for our hearts to speak, and introduction to the heart as vessel
Week two: meeting the physical heart
Week three: meeting the emotional/feeling heart
Week four: meeting the symbolic heart
Week five: meeting the spiralling heart

NOTE: Please be aware that places on this course are limited (due to this being a personal development group), and so fill up very quickly. To avoid disappointment, it is advised to register your interest early so that you can be advised when bookings open.
