Why We Need Others to Heal, Awaken and Thrive

practices Jul 16, 2019

One thing that makes Heart iQ different to many other modalities is that the work is done in a group, where healing is done in connection with others.

Initially, Heart iQ uses group wisdom and the amplified field to support individuals in their awakening process. As people go deeper into the work however, they realise that working on 'themselves' is just the beginning and that a far grander experience awaits them when they are willing to surrender to the collective wisdom that emerges from the group. When this happens, healing isn't just personal, but trans-personal - it becomes a collective portal for change.

Thus Heart iQ isn't just about creating healthy people, but building healthy community. 

Many of us crave to be in community yet few healthy examples of functioning communities actually exist. In this blog, we explore community, the importance of being witnessed and how healing with others can be so much faster than healing by yourself.

How To Feel Good, Even When You Feel Bad

practices Jul 09, 2019

Accessing joy consistently in your daily life can be challenging. It’s not always easy to see the big picture, the grand design, and to understand there’s divine perfection in it all. I’ve devised a system of processing your moment-to-moment reality that makes it a bit easier. It’s called Heart iQ Tracking.

Heart iQ Tracking provides valuable insight into what’s causing your resistance to joy, what’s getting in the way, and which thoughts and judgments are keeping you from loving what is.

When you track well, you have the key to joy in any moment!

Learn more in the video below.


Although tracking can be used as a way to read energy of others and the room, in this blog, we’ll focus on your personal practice of Heart iQ Tracking.  This powerful practice will teach you to pay attention to what is presently moving for you and in you, and distinguish the difference between the content and your relationship to the content.

How To Heal Trauma Through Divine Relaxation

practices Jul 02, 2019

What if you could heal emotional and psychological trauma by bringing your nervous system into a deep state of rest? 

When you get traumatised through neglect or by taking in violating energies, your body-mind stores the undigested energy and memory of the trauma as a contraction of bound energy that is felt as tension in the body.

A chronic state of tension in your nervous system creates several challenges:

  1. Others feel it and naturally avoid it. They feel a repulsion, not to the soul before them, but to the highly strung nervous system to which they don’t want to entrain. As others avoid it, the tension increases.

  2. When the nervous system is so tense, in a state of hyper stimulation, it focuses on what is not working and identifies through pain points. From this place, healing is not accessible because the system is working so hard to maintain the tension.

In the following video, Christian brings awareness to a man whose life is deeply affected by chronic tension.

How To Become a Worldclass Embodied Speaker

practices Jun 25, 2019

What does it take to become an embodied speaker?  In the entertaining video below, Christian tells us about his personal journey toward embodied speaking and how his courage and commitment paid off in a big way.  



Christian’s story illustrates the vital elements of becoming an embodied speaker: courage, commitment, and PRACTICE.

In this next case study, we journey with Melanie as she meets her worst fear — an unresponsive audience — then takes her own journey, one tweak at a time, toward the key ingredients for her own embodied, powerful communication.



Key Take-Aways:

  • Coaching from Christian helped Melanie access her personal presence and worth through her posture, and she was given the assignment to regularly practice Radiating, Receiving, and Feeling Her Value.

  • Christian reminds us that we don’t need to DO anything to be worthy, we only need to DECIDE to be in our fullness, unapologetic for...

Why Anger is Essential For Your Happiness

practices Jun 18, 2019

Anger is a controversial emotion that many people say is unhealthy, negative or harmful. In Heart IQ™, we believe that anger is not only extremely healthy when channeled through the heart, but is, in fact, essential for your happiness!

How can this be?

First, we need to dissect the commonly held myth in the personal development world that negative emotions exists. What many call “negative” is really just a judgment of an energy that is either misunderstood or channeled in an unhealthy way. For example, the energy of anger when expressed through a closed heart (meaning that it is not connected to your value and goodness) can be hurtful, poisonous, and damaging to all concerned. It can cause you to lash out and become passive aggressive or manipulative.

Therefore, if anger (or any emotion) is creating undesirable feelings, behaviours, and results in your life, it’s a clear message that there is a part of you in judgment and in conflict with yourself, and thus...

How To Feel Safe So You Can Live Your Full Potential

practices Jun 09, 2019

In order to heal, you need to feel.

In order to feel, you need to feel safe.

Safety in your nervous system allows all that wants to be felt to come to the surface. If you don't feel safe, you risk burying and repressing your trauma which can manifest as depression, stress and disease. 

But don't confuse feeling safe with being comfortable. Safety allows you the capacity to meet life, your fears and insecurities head on and be able to digest them, resulting in a life of freedom, ease and grace.

Safety is created in the nervous system when the environment allows for rest, moving away from vigilance and fight and flight, to a relaxed para-sympathetic state. However, it’s important to understand this one distinction about safety: your perception is the most important factor that determines how safe you feel, more than the influence of your environment or the outer world. This is great news! Since you can learn how to have more choice in your perception,...

How to Feel More Connected in a Fast Paced World

practices Jun 05, 2019

We all have parts that are craving to be felt but are covered by the hyper-stimulation of today’s fast paced society. In Heart iQ we know you have to “feel it to heal it” and that starts by coming into relationship with your body, letting it take the lead.

The Slow Motion Movement Practice connects you to your heart, your body, and an exquisite sense of self intimacy and joy. The more slowly you move, the more deeply you connect.

How do you do it?

  1. Go to a quiet place where you’ll be undisturbed.
  2. Start in a comfortable position — e.g. sitting, standing, on all fours, lying down.
  3.  Allow your body to relax and gently focus on your breath. Eyes can be opened or closed.
  4. When your body feels like it wants to move, let it happen, but very, very slowly.
  5. Move based upon your body’s longing rather than your mind’s will. No thinking “now I’ll move this part or that part.” Instead, become the witness to your body’s...

NOW OPEN: Thrive! Weekends at New Eden in 2019

news May 22, 2019

For months now I've been contemplating how to bring our community and tribe into deeper connection as we heal and awaken together.

Here's what we've come up with...

We want to invite you to continue (or start) your journey at New Eden by coming to visit us for a weekend at an upcoming Thrive! Mini-Retreat (Friday night to Sunday afternoon).

This is an opportunity to heal and awaken with other like minded, heart intelligent souls and to drop deep, get nourished, nurture friendships, learn new skills and practice surrendering to the deeper essence that is you, together in connection with others who can really feel you.

Rather than create a one-off workshop that risks leaving you with no support or integration, we've scheduled SEVEN of these weekends this year so you can choose to come multiple times on dates that work for you. Of course, you don't have to come back again and again, but now you know you CAN, if you want to.

As a way to celebrate the...
