Embracing the Intelligence of Your Heart: A Workshop for Men

Embracing the Intelligence of Your Heart (A Workshop for Men) is designed to take you on, perhaps, the longest journey across the shortest distance - from your head to your heart. Men are often trapped in their heads, but they are actually stronger, wiser, more grounded, and more lovable when they embrace the intelligence of their hearts.

We believe the heart makes the man. We are offering this workshop because we want to help men embrace their hearts - to be happier and more successful in their lives, relationships, and careers. They can accomplish this when they:

  • Focus on the present moment with more peace, intention, and fulfillment
  • Engage with less judgment and conflict
  • Create more satisfying relationships
  • Make better choices
  • Communicate more effectively 

We invite you to participate in this four-hour experiential workshop, which will be a guided tour filled with group activities and discussions that are designed to help you be happier and more successful in your life.

Your tour guides, Ed Besse and Paul Plamondon, will be delighted to lead you to your courageous heart. For more information contact Ed at EdBesse@gmail.com or Paul at freemondon@gmail.com.
