Expansive Heart 

A Heartbeat Intensive with Tammy Burstein

"There is no true joy and compassion except through the difficult emotions - all we get without the experience of fear, anger, and sadness are cheap imitations of joy and compassion - pleasantness and sentimentality." – Gabrielle Roth

What is the Expansive Heart but a strong and pliable muscle that can pulse with life to its fullest? Able to forgive. Courageous enough to be vulnerable. Willing to surrender to love. Open to living generously. Ready to step into being of service to ourselves and others.

The answer is YES. YES to a heart-centered life that we practice by being alive, in the moment, with passion and compassion for the ups and downs, the prayers and curses, of being a human being. YES to the power of the 5Rhythms to reveal and heal where we let in and where we keep out, where we let out and where we keep in the medicine of our emotional bodies.

Join us for 5 days of dancing with four wise teachers of love - fear, anger, sorrow, joy. Join us for 5 days of moving together into one teaching – a unified field of compassion.
