The Beginning of a Dream.
Dancing Hearts was born from a dream I carried in my heart for a long time. As far back as I can remember, I loved animals and nature and people. I learned about how we are all connected in a magnificant web of life and how our hearts hold the secrets for happy living…and how the natural world and our animal companions help us to tap into those secrets.
I discovered my life mission.
As my dogs, horses, and other teachers showed me how to use my intuition, to share awareness with all life in our world community, to help me heal and to teach me how to help others heal themselves…I knew that I was born to share this wisdom with others. And to keep exploring, questioning, seeking, experiencing and sharing all along the way.
It started with simple things like helping families train their puppies and dogs using kind and simple methods that worked. And helping people experience the exhilaration of agility with their dogs. Then venturing into a way for city folks to learn how to be hobby shepherds with their dogs and way beyond, into national level sheep herding competition.
My work blossomed into sharing the wisdom of a holistic lifestyle. It wasn’t long before women who wanted to exchange their corporate life for their own business began to ask me for guidance and so I developed the holistic business planning program.
There were lots of struggles and challenges along the way.
Just like you, I have struggled with relationships, partnerships, training my dogs, healing my body and my spirit, finding joy and gratitude on days when dark clouds obscured the light. My heart, my intuition, my dogs, horses and the other animals, nature, spirit, friends and teachers of all sorts have helped me to learn the lessons and wisdom of the heart that brought healing and balance into my life…lessons that I now share by example and thru my work.
I learned that dogs help us connect to the spirit of our own heart. And that changes everything.
At the core of everything that I share is a deep heartfelt connection to the spirit of life. It’s a connection that brings peace and happiness and it’s what I want to help you find. It’s a connection to your heart’s passion for making a difference in the world. A profound connection to your dogs, horses, cats and other companion animals. To your family and fellow humans. A magical connection to nature and to every living being on earth. An awareness that everything is alive, filled with spirit. And that we are all connected to one another.
That magic birthed the name of my dream: Dancing Hearts. A name that reflects happiness, hope, peace and a deep connection to our heart…and outwardly expressing that happiness…like in ‘dancing with joy’! I want to share the kind of happiness that fills your whole being and infects everyone around you … making them want to smile, laugh…and make their hearts dance!
That’s the kind of happiness that our dogs bring to our lives, isn’t it?
My approach is simply to connect you to living a heart-centered, holistic life. When you begin to experience a life that makes you happy, and brings happiness to others, you won’t go back to the other way. I promise.
Our dogs, horses, cats and other animal companions are amazing teachers who lead us to find and live this amazing kind of life. Each time we choose to teach our dogs with patience, kindness and love, we are moving toward happiness and peace. Each time we see our dogs as bearers of wisdom and accept their teachings with gratitude and respect, our hearts open wider and we accept more joy into our life.
My dream is to help you have a happy, heart-centered life that eagerly acknowledges that your dogs and other companions are willing and able to lead the way!
