OPEN HEART, OPEN MIND — SAY YES TO YOUR POTENTIAL

For many of us, the architecture of our lives is built on stories and beliefs we learned from our families, schools and society. It is usually a narrative of fear and lack. We are taught to play small, stay safe and find security. We learn not to make a fuss and that our wants, desires and needs don’t matter. 

To some degree, this strategy worked. You are safe, you have a job and you are well fed. But maybe you are burdened with anxiety, guilt, shame or debt or a sense of going through the motions—feeling empty. You might realize you are living out a strategy rather than living your life.
 
This course is an invitation to reclaim your life. It’s an opportunity to go to the edge of your narrative and discover what is possible from there.  
 
It’s about developing a mindset to experience life as full of opportunities rather than a mindset of fear, lack and survival. You will realize you are the architect of your life and you have the power to change. The course is a radical reframing of what you thought life is to what you truly desire. It’s a shift from survival strategy to success strategy.
 
With mindfulness meditation, we realize we are not our stories or beliefs. With practice, we connect to a deeper current of life. AND if we are courageous, we will listen. We allow this impulse to guide us. When this happens, you are living life. You are living your destiny. (While mindfulness meditation will be a foundational tool, this is not a mindfulness course.)
 
We sense the enormous possibility that exists for each of us. What do you truly desire? Will you say yes to your potential?

TESTIMONIALS

“I experienced so much personal growth through this course. I feel more empowered, more compassionate to myself, and less alone in my struggles. I had never done work like this in a group setting before, and I was both nervous and skeptical to try, but it turned out to be incredible.  I underestimated the power of group work. I highly recommend participating! For me, the experience was motivating, inspiring, and healing. It was so worth it.” — CF, counsellor


“I recently took Ocean’s Open Heart Open Mind course, which she promised would change my life – and it did! I wholeheartedly recommend this course.  It works on many levels, integrating heart, mind, and body. It brought together an amazing group of people. I had no idea of the power of being seen and heard in a group like this. Practicing staying present with each person in the group as we shared our own triumphs and struggles brought the lessons of meditation and mindfulness home for me.

We each created a vision for our lives, and now I have an evolving map to guide me on my journey. It is not an abstraction, an idea like “being happy,” but rather a living document I am excited to work on – for Ocean taught me I have been living my life and reacting to events based on old scripts I was taught, not based on my true self how I am today. That harsh voice in my head that tells me I am not good enough and not worthy of love is quieting as I learn to speak to myself as I would speak to a dear friend. I am being kind to myself in a way I have never been, and this is allowing me to feel my own gentle power and the positive influence my own light can have on others.

I am curious, I ask more questions, and I’m learning I don’t have to control everything to feel safe. I am learning what it is to be human: complicated, imperfect, beautiful, passionate, messy, adventurous. All of it is okay, it is me.” 
— SH, Registered Nurse


I was non-committal about the course — I had one foot in and one foot out. But each week, I was surprised by what I learned and the insights I gained. Over the 12 weeks, lessons and insights kept percolating. By the end of the course, I had turned my life in a new direction! I actually believe I can trust my dreams. Very powerful. I am beyond grateful to Ocean and the course.” — NH, Director, Province of BC
