Class Code


This course will cover the pelvic diaphragm, respiratory diaphragm, intracranial diaphragms (falx cerebri, falx cerebelli, tentorium cerebelli)

Releasing our 3 diaphragms is a very important key to healing the physical-emotional components of disease.

  • HCT-DIA supports stepping into full presence and safety within our pelvic floor.  As we clear unresolved emotion, hidden shame, and guilt, we regain trust in our inner-knowing of who we are.  Our deepest sense of knowing and wisdom is inherent and natural.  Healing the pelvic floor will reveal many hidden keys that can empower us as men and women.
  • A respiratory diaphragm that is tight and restricted can mirror addressed fear of life and death. Addressing and transforming these unconscious issues can restore full breath, right structural alignment and ignite our trust in life.
  • The tentorium cerebelli and reciprocal tension membranes of the cranium can also inhibit the cellular and structural ability of our brain and nervous system to access and ignite our Soul light. Healing-related trauma can support us to unify with the universal matrix of life.

HCT-DIA prepares us for opening to our pure matrix that aligns us to ourselves and each other.

Dear Alaya and Bruno,

Thank you so much for this beautiful experience of HCT 1. The class was wonderful and I LOVED having you two here together. It brought a richness and a "real"-ness to the class material to see you two sharing this together.
Alaya. I will be forever grateful for the session you did for me in front of the class. Such tender pieces of my heart were put back together. How can I thank you enough for that precious gift. Thank you for creating the space to find resolution for my parent's divorce. I am finally at peace to have their lives separate.
My joy in my connection with my did is so sweet and feels complete.
I admire you so much. May you be blessed in your journey of bringing light and love to this world.

HCT is a therapy born of transformative experience and deep knowing of the heart. Alaya’s transparency as she presents her work infuses each participant with the very love essence of which she speaks.

Heart Centered Therapy successfully transforms the multi-generational patterns that keep families unhealthy. I have seen powerful changes occurring with HCT in clients who have failed to make progress through more traditional therapies. Personal relationships can also heal through HCT. People become closer and marriages become more joyful, including my own.”

The profundity of HCT has not only deeply shifted my clinical approach, but the very essence of my own life and the ripple continues to touch everyone I know.

As a clinical psychologist of 30 years, I have rarely experienced an analytical therapeutic approach that is more penetrating, thoughtful, and loving. HCT cuts straight to the core and allows the client to work through their process with self-acceptance and no judgment. The results are astounding.

Heart Centered Therapy (HCT) is an elegant therapeutic approach integrating psychological, emotional and physical aspects of clients and practitioners.

The level 1 workshop is beautifully organized and facilitated, creating a safe and lovingly supportive environment. Participants can anticipate profound healing experiences while becoming empowered to employ HCT in their clinical practices and in their own evolving Healing process.

I took HCT-DIA with Alaya last year, it is an incredible technique to have in your tool kit.
