Relate From Depth and Realness | Upcoming Relationships & Sexuality Retreat

upcoming events Feb 11, 2019

In Heart iQ, we get to heal the traumas that emerge in intimate connection, which, if left unattended, create dissonance, disconnection and ultimately break up.

We do this together, in connection with others.

All trauma was created in relationship and relationship will be needed for your healing. We need to do this together.

In this training, we will meet and surrender to whatever arises in the moment as you connect with others, learning and becoming aware of all the ways you close your Heart and re-enact your childhood wounding in your intimacy today.

You'll also learn the needed communication skills to share with your beloved what is happening in your inner world, so you can navigate it together, with compassion.

The final piece to this training is the work we do to connect your sexuality with your Heart, creating a delightful combination of conscious, heart connected 'fuck' that will sustain your intimacy for years to come.

If you are in a relationship or...

How to Upgrade Your Life Without Focusing on Your Pain or Problems


Heart iQ is what I call a "Transformational Technology". 

It's not about fixing your dysfunction or about focusing on your problems. 

It's an upgrade. 

What if what you think is broken and problematic, is actually you not having an 'imprint' of a healthy way of being? 

What if you were never given the imprint of what it means to be a man, a woman, a lover, a parent, an elder, or a leader?

What if you were never given a model of what life COULD be? What if, instead of being blessed with healthy imprints of what you can be, you were given a limited, conditioned and restricted version of what's truly possible?

Heart iQ is the transformational technology that offers you DIRECT, in-the-body imprints of upgraded ways of being, without needing to do therapy, or focus on your issues. 

Heart iQ is the technology to experience what we call, "The New Normal". 

Watch this video to discover more about Heart iQ and the Sacred Imprinting work we do, and why being in a group...

Episode 4: New Eden at its Best


The Awakened Living Project has now run for an entire month and we're in the home stretch now with two weeks to go... and the project is really coming alive!

This past weekend was our first attempt to create a New Eden 'Thrive' Experience, a space to drop in, connect, build friendships and awaken in community. 

And it was amazing! 

First, we lucked out with the amazing weather. Second, the people who came were awesome, third: the circles were spectacular, the land was happy and the whole experience felt like coming home. Yay!

It was a like being in a retreat. But it wasn't a retreat... it was something much, much more.  

We're birthing something new, something different, something that doesn't exist anywhere else on planet Earth and we want you to be a part of it.

The Awakened Living Project is coming to a close in 12 days (you can book your last minute stay by clicking the link in the sidebar), but our ThriveFest Gathering in November is just heating...

Episode 3: Heart iQ Circle Work at New Eden


Episode 3: Heart IQ Circle Work at New Eden

One of the most impactful aspects of people's experience at New Eden, whether it is the regular staff and community here, or new guests, is the Sacred Circle Work we do on a regular basis.

Sacred circle work (or Heart IQ Work) is a tool for expanding and accelerating one's own internal consciousness and expression in the world.

Developed over the last 12 years by Christian, circle is a space that draws forth what is ready to be seen, felt, experienced and witnessed within oneself.

It's more than just a "mirror".

It's an amplification of what's taking place internally and a revelation for what's ready to come to to be either released, embodied or expressed in onself.

There's not much more that can be said really.

As with all things, you just gotta experience it for yourself.

Opening up to who they really are.

Receiving the goodness and truth of life.

Episode 1: The Awakened Living Project Begins


New Eden's first official video blog!

We decided to make a weekly video blog, authentically capturing the experience here at New Eden.

This is the first episode of the series.

During week one, we had an amazing week kicking off this experiement. This included opening the new co-work space, creating the collective field, getting the kitchen up and running, bringing the volunteer staff together and finding our rhythm.

Our intention in creating this series is to inspire the possibilities of living and growing as a collective. This project is an experiment to see how this centre can be used as a place to experience collective living, amplifying one another's lives.

If you enjoy this episode, please SHARE this video and LIKE this page to help get this inspiration out into the world.
