Episode: 009 - "Mending the Heart" with Morella DevostSarah Spencer 24 May 2016
When I first met Morella, I didn’t know she was from Venezuela. I never heard a hint of an accent, never questioned where she came from until I met her mom at a party a few years back. They hadn’t seen each other in a year - and her mom was going to be heading back to Venezuela - without her daughter. I could see the heartbreak for both of them. I wanted to ask her about it, however, the right place or time never came to broach the subject, until now. I asked about the heartbreak of not being able to easily return to your homeland and her poignant answer moved me, as I hope it’ll move you. Her journey though heartbreak inspired her to co-create a 3-day workshop on Mending the Heart:
“Our deepest buried feelings and memories have a great effect on the body. They show up in symptoms, chronic health issues, destructive habits and puzzling emotional reactions.” - Morella Devost
Morella will lead this 3-day workshop in April that has a 3-prong approach to helping mend the heart through mind, body and spirit. If you:
- Have long-standing hurts from a particular memory or relationship.
- Still wish it had never happened.
- Don’t want the memory to affect your life but the fact that you’d rather not talk about it makes you realize that there’s an unresolved issue there.
- Feel resentful towards someone or some event.
- Sense that past hurts may be affecting your health.
- Done therapy or self-help but you’re still not where you want to be.
