Heart Centered Therapy 2 teaches a Heart-Centered touch that brings heightened awareness and wisdom into our hands.
HCT2 addresses and treats physical restrictions related to trauma that may have occurred in each stage of development in utero and during pregnancy. This is mirrored and addressed down to a cellular, organ, and fascia level. Participants will learn to track tensions and restrictions in the body and release residual tension in the tissue.
They learn to follow the physical guidance of the body with confidence and gentleness and help ensure the safe environment needed for the client’s tissue to relax and entrust the manual therapy process.
HCT2 helps understand how unresolved physical traumas can affect the body tissue and compromise healthy structural alignment. This level of connection heightens touch, palpation skills, and effectiveness in manual treatment.
HCT2 also helps to understand how ancestral traumas may have continued to create structural dysfunction in a spectrum of degrees.
Learn how cellular trauma can be a future hidden source of disease and physical pain.
Learn how the mother’s internal environment, the health of her physical body, can determine the tissue tension and foundational posture of the baby.
Connecting manually to the body as a conscious, sentient, intelligent, and loving being.
Explain how the quality of one’s parents' relationship to each other affects the foundational structure of our physical and emotional body.
Class length 4 days
"HCT2 offers an opportunity for amazing gifts. I gained a profound and deeper sense of self and overall felt more whole. The heightened awareness I felt towards people around me was both touching and holy.
Since the class my perceptions have been shifting and changing. At times my sense of self is less defined or separate from everything that exists and yet I feel a sense of freedom that I never had before. I literally feel like I have been reborn."

How HCT Changed my Coaching Career and Personal Life?
I have been a dedicated competitive swimming coach for 30 years. I was fortunate to experience two of my swimmers making the Olympic team, one of which was a medalist at the Seoul Games in Korea in 1988. Two years ago I met Alaya at HCT 1 and came to the realization that I have a heart and that I could see and feel life differently for myself. My life was changed forever. It was at HCT 2 that it hit me what a profound impact this process could have on the children that I work with. How might I incorporate HCT in my coaching philosophy?
We started in a very innocent way introducing the basic principles of HTC and experimenting with these experiences in the water. We now have some kids purely swimming in their heart and working with sound improves skills and reduces fatigue levels while training and racing. I feel enthusiastic that we are moving forward with Heart Centered Swimming. I feel confident that through heart-filled intention and openness to further exploration, we could have a profound impact on coaches of all sports.
Working in a Loving way has challenged my own personal growth and has reduced the life stresses that we all put on ourselves. Creating change in people’s minds is always challenging, but very much worth the effort. I look forward to the continuing Journey that Heart Centered Swimming and living fully in my Heart Brings to my own life and lives that I connect with.
Basically, when the kids are in their heart space and using sound they can:
- Improve their stroke position floatability
- They can reduce increase speed using sound – therefore fatigue is not really present
- There swimming races can reflect when they are in their heart and not. Their splits (times time per length) can indicate when they where in or out of their heart.
We’ve done tests where I get the kids to do vertical kicking holding an object above water. When in their heart, there is very little noise in the water. In their heads… the total opposite, we hear grunting, and lots of water noise.

I recently returned from a four-day workshop in Palm Beach Gardens given by Alaya and Bruno Chikly. I found it comparable to the Gestalt Pastoral Therapy I used to practice, except this is gentler, more focussed, more powerful, and you don't need five years of training and a master's degree to take the class. Whether it is something you would like to experience once or use in an ongoing manner, heart work is utterly magical and transformative.
My heart chakra has not been as activated as it was during this class since the last time I was in the presence of Master Choa. This work is a manifestation of the healing power of the Divine Feminine. During my session as a demo for ancestral healing, I received clear images with substantial and specific information from 15,000 years ago during the time of Atlantis, which is relevant to who I am and what I am doing right now. During my 30 years of inner work, counseling, meditation, healing, and therapy, nothing accessed that information until this class.

I am writing what might be called a "testimonial" to positively RAVE about and endorse the value of Alaya Chikly's Heart-Centered Therapy curriculum (HCT); I just took HCT1 up in Boise and am eager to sign up for HCT2. As you know, I've been in the Upledger loop for a l-o-n-g time: you know how much I Iove the work, respect what it can do, and how superb it is that CST combines well with Visceral Manipulation and other "modalities" under the IAHE umbrella.
One of the questions on the eval form we completed on day 4 addresses "techniques" taught that we might find valuable. HCT is so much more than technique. It is blessedly SIMPLE, and so very profound and far-reaching in its gentle application. I can't wait to blend it in with the other ways of work I use, "proper tool for the proper job" and so forth -- but clearing the dissonant energies of long-held and limiting family patterns out of our precious bodies makes SUCH a difference in terms of the ease, grace, and joy we can experience every single day of our lives and share with others.
The sacred is always simple. Complexity is the realm of the ego. Of course, we need both head intelligence and heart intelligence. Coming to the head intelligence with the truly OPEN heart, however, makes living and learning so much easier and happier! I would not hesitate to say that Alaya's Heart-Centered Therapy is truly sacred work. I am filled withg gratitude to have it braiding into my own life and work.
I may be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if Alaya's own sweetness and gentleness, her non-pushiness, has perhaps led to HCT's being a bit less emphasized as a significant part of the IAHE curriculum. I am going to make it one of my own intentions, with my Study Groups and ongoing participation in CST and VM classes, to speak of the value of Heart-Centered Therapy..

I've been thinking about you lately and remembering HCT3. It has given me so much peace as I walk through this cancer journey… You have given me the peace of knowing myself and feeling that I am loved and connected to those who are on this journey. The gift of HCT3 is about knowing and receiving love at a deeper level…I don't think it ever leaves me. For me it was getting past the fear and embracing the unknown in an acceptance of who I am through my relationship with God. Difficult to find the right words but you, Alaya, have the gift of "being" and "communication" and the "knowingness" of taking people to a higher consciousness.
