"Here in the West we live in a world dominated by the hegemony of rationality, empiricism, in which for something to be believed, it has to be verifiable, often measurable, observable, classifiable. The work of Dr Louise Livingstone attempts to correct the imbalance in this way of understanding our world. She does this by reminding us that there is another way of knowing, one that requires us to listen to our hearts as well as our heads.....Her passion is to help spread an understanding of the world as a living entity in which everything is connected and to alert us to the fact that we deny this at our and the world’s peril."

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.

“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.”
