Healing with the Heart

A 2-Day Workshop with Naomi

November 3-4, 2018

Self-Healing as a Catalyst on the Spiritual Path

Overcoming Wounds to Reveal the Heart

Join us for this unique workshop in which you will explore the alchemical process of transmuting self-judgment, shame, and psycho-emotional wounds into self-love, self-compassion, and spiritual growth. In this way, you will access the healing power of the Heart to go deeper into the Heart.

In a safe space with an experienced facilitator (Hridaya teacher Naomi White), learn how to understand, heal, and overcome psychological and emotional difficulties that are keeping you from going deeper in the revelation of the Spiritual Heart, who you truly are.


This workshop combines tools and knowledge from both modern psychology and ancient yogic teachings to bring healing light and love, from the Heart, to the parts of yourself you struggle with the most.

The workshop is presented in English.

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
