Heart Centered Therapy 1 (HCT1): Touching from the Heart - Assume Only Love

Heart Centered Therapy (HCT) is a gift of the heart, a sacred journey within.

Heart Centered Therapy level 1 (HCT1) - Touching from the Heart - is a profound 4-day class that teaches techniques that are guided by the wisdom of the heart.

The heart naturally knows how to heal our bodies and our consciousness and dissolve beliefs that may have held us in pain, confusion, and/or separation.
HCT offers deep healing without reliving the trauma as we are held in the safety, love, and compassion of the heart. When we are able to stop identifying with who we are not, we are free to discover who we truly are. 

We not only work in the present moment but also access the original trauma where negative decisions and beliefs were formulated.  Step-by-step guidelines help us to gently identify and transform the emotional component of disease in the body, the related trauma, as well as the ancestral patterns that have sustained wounding within the immediate family and the family lineage. Inside this gentle and respectful process is a very direct, straightforward approach that pierces straight to the core of an issue.
This class is offered to both professionals and laypeople. It gives families tools to heal relationships and deepen intimacy and communication. People come because they want to heal, to be free, to love again, and to be loved. HCT is an experience that restores hope.

The depths of the work cannot be met until the heart is awakened.

The heart is the key, the access point for the journey to begin.

Please join us on this sacred journey.

The Heart Centered Therapy Experience

Heart Centered Therapy 1 (HCT1): Touching from the Heart - Assume Only Love

HCT Therapy addresses the direct physical effects of unresolved emotion in the body and also accesses the original trauma where negative decisions and beliefs were formulated. As we are held in safety, love, and compassion of the heart, we are free to discover who we truly are.
Heartfelt techniques include step-by-step guidelines that identify and transform: the emotional component of disease and discomfort in the body, the related trauma, as well as the ancestral patterns that have to perpetuate dysfunction within the immediate family and family lineage.
In this process, we also learn to internally listen to the sound and frequencies that framed/sustained our family dynamics. As we recognize dissonant sounds in the homes where we were raised, we can see what we may have given up parts of ourselves in order to stay resonant as part of our families. This sacrifice enabled us to be one with our mothers and fathers and to be a part of the whole, however, we may have dissociated and given up our voice, confidence, ability to love, trust, connection, etc... Recognizing this, we come to understand that our parents “also” gave up a part of themselves to be one with their mother and father. We can then step into a deeper understanding and compassion for ourselves and our family. When we come to a place of loving and compassionate understanding, healing deepens.
We are an intrinsic part of the family consciousness. The healing of the whole is interrelated to our personal healing.
In awareness, we can reclaim that which we gave up. In so doing we can support everyone in our families to follow this lead, as no one is excluded in the healing. It gives families tools to heal relationships, communication and deepen intimacy in order to heal, love, and be loved again.

Chikly Health Institute

In 2012, I first learned about the Chikly Health Institute and as of today, I have now completed all of Chikly Health Institute courses in the Lymphatic, Brain, and Heart Centered Therapy (HCT) programs.  This education has radically altered the way I practice my work and the health issues I can address with my clients.  The classes are comprehensive, rich in content and experiential learning, and delivered with the highest professional standards.  When I began the classes with LDT1, it immediately became apparent how essential the integration of the Lymphatic, Brain and HCT programs was going to be to ultimately be able to have an elegant intersection of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of manual treatment.  This curriculum is a pinnacle of excellence in bio-psycho-social hands on manual therapy.  This is a truly unique program.  Many of my colleagues in the classes with far more experience in other CEU training programs, repeatedly commented how superior the classes where with the Chikly Health Institute. I am thrilled to know I had made an extraordinary choice. I look forward to all of the new work Dr. Chikly and Alaya will continue to develop and teach.

Since 2006, Dr Chikly has made me a true body whisperer, imprinting my nervous system with his masterful subtlety such that clients and friends experience spontaneous unwinding of long held, hidden pain, and I myself overcame anaphylaxis several times.

Thank you for an amazing NER-L class. The workbook has incredibly detailed pictures which is helpful in being specific with the anatomy. Bruno is an excellent and patient instructor. I am very excited to incorporate this in my work.

There’s an old psychology saying, “People need 3 things to be happy: 1. Something to do 2. Something to look forward to, 3. Someone to love.”  It’s still relevant today.  Dr. Chikly’s and Alaya’s classes contribute in all these aspects for a deeper and more fulfilling quality of life.
