…to interpersonal intelligence
and seeing from the heart.
There is no place in the world where we are challenged as much to step out of our personal limitations and to grow, than in relationships that are deeply meaningful to us. This is where we laugh, suffer, make war and reconcile, and it is also where we can find the highest forms of surrender, transcendence of character, and the most profound happiness. Yet, despite our longing for deeper connection and healing within our relationships, many people find themselves stuck in familiar patterns and lost as to how to overcome these difficulties. This can happen not only in our romantic relationships, but also in other relationships that are important to us, such as with friends, parents, children, co-workers, and neighbours.
The H.E.A.R.T. model arises from and is consistent with principles and methods of Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy. Halko Weiss developed the training as a way to fill the gap between the Hakomi model that focused on the client’s internal process (the intrapersonal) and the complexity that arises when considering the processes that arise between two people (the interpersonal), whether that be client and therapist or simply any two individuals.
