Training & Events
“Louise’s teaching sessions...were an important part of our learning and her researches into the thought of the heart go to the very core of spiritual scholarship and practice. I was able to use her “transference dialogues” as a form of imaginal enquiry to communicate with a formerly inaccessible part of myself – truly transformative learning.” (Janice Emmott)
INTRODUCTION TO HEART SENSE with Dr Louise Livingstone - £60
Six week, online self study personal development course coming in autumn 2021
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, these sessions will open the heart and offer a platform for the 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.
Week 1 - overview, creating the platform for our hearts to speak
Week 2 - meeting the physical heart (the heart of science)
Week 3 - meeting the emotional heart (the heart of culture)
Week 4 - meeting the symbolic/metaphoric heart
Week 5 - meeting the holistic heart
Week 6 - re-turning to heart, looking back over our journey
Each session is a video recording with Louise speaking accompanied by Powerpoint slides. Sessions comprise theory, contemplative exercises and reflections. As part of the online course, there will be the opportunity for a live Q&A with Louise as additional support. To register your interest, or for more information, please contact Louise directly here.
