Whole-Hearted Cardiac Wellness
Beginning April 18th (Spring Session)
Welcome to Whole-Hearted Cardiac Wellness where, together, we enrich cardiac health through a supportive and holistic approach. For years, research has shown that heart disease is the number one cause of death in both males and females. The medical field has made massive strides in the treatment and prevention of cardiac disease over the years. Treatment has been focused primarily on physical healing, which is a vital component to wellness. However, we cannot overlook the emotional and mental challenges that often go hand in hand with cardiac disease. The prevalence of stress, anxiety and depression are higher among those affected by heart disease. I believe that we can use our current health challenge as a catalyst for deep personal growth and healing.
Whole-Hearted Cardiac Wellness is an 8-week group program that is specifically targeted at promoting emotional and mental wellness which is an integral part of cardiac disease recovery. This course is inspired by countless patients that I have personally cared for over the years that have shared their struggles with me, even after showing physical improvement. This is because the emotional and mental component was left unaddressed, and these patients are still struggling with stress and unhealthy coping skills- not because they want to but because they don’t know another way.
This 8-week program will help you develop healthy skills to not only manage stress but to discover the root of your stress and ways to work with it using mindfulness and self-compassion. Often, we may feel alone in our struggles and that is why a group setting is so important. We need each other to learn, connect and remember our sense of belonging. We cannot do this work alone and a supportive group environment is an integral part of this program.

I have lived with fear for much of my life. I remember all the way back to when I was young, around 4-5 years old, lying in bed at night afraid of everything- monsters, wars, people I loved dying, getting lost. The list goes on and seemed to visit me often. My parents...
We all struggle with feelings of unworthiness. Perhaps it is our one universal lesson in this lifetime to discover our worth. I believe that we all come into this world with a sense of wholeness and for many reasons (some which we may never understand), this sense...
