CST is beneficial for general well-being and relaxation, or for a specific issue such as headaches, healing from injury or surgery, vertigo, anxiety, depression  and more.  It can useful as a general "tune-up" when you feel things are "off" or for grappling with a deeply rooted struggle that could use the collaboration of mind, body, energy and spirit.   

Jess has studied locally with a gifted intuitive and CST practitioner and with the Upledger Institute.  She pulls together her experience in Intuitive Energy Reading, CST, Reiki, yoga, mindfulness, herbalism and more to personalize and optimize each session.

When we can tune into the details and the sensations of our children while they navigate the world and allow ourselves to really see and hear WHO that child is, in this moment, we may notice a shift in how we perceive all of life, and maybe find it's all a little easier to enjoy at the same time.    More....

Much of our western culture can be a bit overwhelming to those of us who are "sensitive".   But did you know that within the "ailment", lies a "cure"?  

As an incredibly sensitive human myself, I've been studying this concept in adults and children and from many different lenses, and I've come to love and honor the deep awareness and ACCESS we have to our inner world, thanks to our sensitivity.  More...

Yoga and mindfulness are an invitation into your center.  At our center, we can know peace and joy naturally.  At their center, all children are beautiful, KIND, love to share and have a really good sense of right and wrong.  They are so much more aware and capable, right from birth, than our society ever gives them credit for.  And they live closer to their center naturally.  They are the brightest of lights just because they are so fresh.   More...

What's in a name?  A Peaceful Heart is a heart that is listened to and accepted just as it is;  with presence, stillness, respect and love.  Our own hearts and the hearts of our children.  When we can be witnessed, heard and seen in our present state, from a place of stillness and compassion in the listener, we release the tension that blocks our most vibrant expression of who we are.   When we choose to feel and be with all that we are, whether it's pretty or not, and stay with that deepest sensation rather than find ways to numb it,  that's when we can find peace.  And from this place of courage and understanding is where we grow and soar.  


Peaceful Heart is an LLC, yet we operate as a not-for profit entity.  Any income beyond operating expenses goes toward the improvement of our programming, into our scholarship fund or is donated to a local charity doing work related to ours.  Currently we are donating monthly to the YWCA to support their mission of "eliminating racism and empowering women".
