... TO SPACE OF LOVE;
THE HOME OF HEART-CENTERED THRIVING, WHERE THE ENERGY OF LOVE IS ALWAYS PRESENT, AND THE CIRCLE OF COMPASSION ENCOMPASSES ALL BEINGS.
Here, science and spirituality serve together - unifying our increasing astral awareness with our earthly embodied experience of being human, and learning to harmonize our thoughts, words, feelings, and actions with the cadences of compassion, kindness, and connection.
There are infinite Pathways through the Heart, and all trails lead to Love.
This space is an ever-evolving collective of courageous heart-minds, with a diversity of professional love languages and libations to lift you up, and light you up. Tuning the instrument of your body-mind-heart to the frequency of love through the alchemy of yoga, movement arts, mindfulness, song and sound medicine, awakening creativity and play, dharma discussions, plant medicine, transformational workshops and retreats, and compassionate community engagement.
According to the HeartMath Institute, “Just as the shifting stance of a tennis player about to receive a serve may facilitate swift adaptation, in healthy individuals the heart remains similarly responsive and resilient, primed and ready to react when needed.”.
And so as our hearts navigate the changing tides of our global landscape, Space of Love is primed and ready. Both online, and in the world. Serving as a digital portal for learning, sharing, co-creating, and connecting. And also deepening this unfolding with in-person international workshops, retreats, and service in solidarity.
Rumi, the 13th century poet, reminds us, “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” And as these barriers begin to decompose, the space starts to open up and reveal itself. The Space of Love.
Now, more than ever, the world needs you to stand in this space, in the centre of your empowered heart, to do the heart work, and love like you’ve never loved before!

FOR LOVE ...
In the Space of Love we come together, as wisdom sharers and curious beings alike, to explore a diversity of perspectives and pathways towards heart-centred thriving. We unite with the energy of Love.
And while we hold space for it all, we also acknowledge that disharmony arises from time to time, and our community thrives best when our collective heart-minds respect, honour, and appreciate the one pulse that unites us; our community agreements.
LOVE your own experience, while respecting the experience of others.
We understand that our experience and the experience of others may not be the same.
As we gather life experience, it can become increasingly difficult to maintain the beginner’s mind. We make the commitment to practice presence with ourselves and others, listening in an active way no matter how much we think we already know about what is being shared. Cultivating presence is the greatest support anyone can give to another being and the community as a whole.
Speak from the space of heart-mind alignment. Your open-hearted, clear, and honest speech allows for a more authentic, compassionate, and deeper space of relating, while at the same time not making assumptions or projections about others.
Listen with beginner’s mind and practice LOVING presence.
LOVE without shaming or blaming.
Rather than wrong or right, we believe in the framework of wisdom and ignorance. Where wrong can never become right, ignorance has the potential to become wise. Treat each situation and experience as a building block of evolutionary growth.
Before reacting, ask yourself,
'LOVELY, is it true?'.
Work to separate observations and feelings from the projections and stories that arise from them. Many disharmonies start simply from creating stories based on observing only a small part of a larger situation. Our mind has the tendency to fill in the blanks, and it can be very helpful if we understand that our stories are just that, stories.
LOVE is cultivating curiosity, rather than judgement.
Having judgments about someone or something is a closed way of being. On the other hand, asking from a place of true curiosity why someone is being or doing something in a certain way creates an opportunity for better communication and deeper understanding.
Be transparent in LOVE.
Transparency involves embodying qualities of openness, receptivity and vulnerability while cultivating consciousness - being transparent with oneself and choosing to see all outer feedback coming to us as reflections of our inner world. When disturbed we first ask, “How is this a reflection of me? How am I being in this way? Am I disturbed because this person is reflecting something I don’t want to face in myself?”
LOVE calls us in, not out.
Don’t be afraid of confrontation: calling others in to a difficult conversation. Challenges are the raw ingredients for our growth and facing them in a grounded, compassionate way allows for collective evolution. Be open with others about your process and challenges, especially when it is affecting others. If support is needed then mediation can be very helpful.
Focus on LOVE solutions,
rather than LOVE problems.
If you can see it you can solve it. Notice when you make a mess and clean up after yourself, be it energetic or physical. Be honest and make amendments. When stepping out of integrity, take responsibility for this and be honest with yourself and others, making appropriate amendments with those who are affected.
It is not possible to be in service and bring benefit to others if you do not take care of yourself. Listen to and respect your needs, moment to moment. Communicate your needs so the community can support you.
Take initiative and be LOVINGLY engaged.
Everyone in the community takes initiative to be fully engaged in community projects and meetings as well as their personal growth and development. It is up to each person to benefit from their life experience and no one can undertake your personal evolutionary process for you. Each individual is committed to serve as an inspiration and loving example of being the heart-centred change in the world.
