Opening Hearts

Our Vision

When we come to rest in the heart, we allow our self to become open and fully alive: we become radically receptive. When intellect and spirit are invited to converge in the heart, anything is possible. The heart becomes a catalytic container, an alchemical vessel that gives birth to growth, commitment, and healing.

The work of HEART'S REST is to support renewal, change, creative vision and recommitment to the work of the heart, in individuals and in communities.

Our desire is to help others deepen their connection with the pulse of Love that draws all into being; to support their heart’s work; and to facilitate their heart’s growth. We are called to this work out of our own deep love for the Holy that shimmers in all of creation.

Our Work

The work of HEART'S REST began in two different streams. The first involved developing, leading and hosting retreats for individuals and groups. That work recast itself as we began to prototype new ministries and iterative change, which often involved collaboration with other organizations in our area communities. These collaborative efforts with community groups now continues under the aegis of Wide Spot, our companion ministry with the Turner Zion Pastoral Charge of the United Church of Canada.

The second stream of Heart's Rest--which was part of our original effort and still continues--involves providing spiritual companioning to individuals and support to the contemplative community of the Kootenays.
