What is Heartwork?

“In the heart of every problem lies its solution. We spend enormous amounts of time and energy searching for answers outside ourselves, when the answers lie within. Heartwork is a simple, direct, powerful, yet gentle tool for opening fully to one’s life. Both a spiritual practice and a way of living, Heartwork serves to resolve problems at their core, and to open the “heart of compassion.” Heartwork is a creative process, which teaches one to find fundamental solutions to both everyday problems and the more difficult life questions, transforming “problems” into doorways to compassion, insight and joy.” 

– Heartwork’s founder, Dale Goldstein


Heartwork is a synthesis of Eastern meditative approaches to healing and Western psychology and philosophy, using awareness as the primary vehicle to see into the source of one’s problems. The basic assumption of Heartwork is that our fundamental state is wholeness. Dis-ease is a separation from this wholeness.
