Living and speaking from authenticity and peace is possible, and it doesn’t take years of therapy.

Mindful Compassionate Dialogue (MCD) can help.  MCD uses practical and well-defined Relationship Competencies and Foundations to help you relate to yourself and others with mindfulness and agency. It was born from a deep grounding in Mindfulness, Hakomi (body centered therapy), and Compassionate Communication (also called Nonviolent Communication - NVC). Mindful Compassionate Dialogue is a framework and system founded by Wise Heart. It provides clarity about why things don’t work and practical tools that naturally open the heart. Working from this new framework, relationships with yourself and others become easier and more fulfilling.

Our mission and passion at Wise Heart is to help you prioritize and trust a quality of connection to yourself and others that supports thriving interdependence. We want to support you in bringing spiritual practice together with practical tools and a concrete understanding of how to connect and communicate with yourself and others. Together we can create a global consciousness that lives and breaths compassion, and acts from wisdom.

Over the last 20 years, Wise Heart has helped thousands of people gain the skills and understanding they need to create honest, caring relationships with partners, family, friends, and co-workers. Together our Wise Heart team is now reaching students all over the world; in person and online. Join us in contributing to transformation around the world.
