Heart Connection Group


Introducing our new bi-monthly group…

Heart Connection Group 

2nd & 4th Thursdays; 1:30-3:00 p.m.

Begins March 14!

FREE for members; $5 day-use for non-members

Join this facilitated group to gain greater personal connection and learn to listen with compassion. 

Listen with Compassion • Speak from your Heart • EVERYONE is WELCOME 

What to expect: A Heart Circle is coming together to listen and speak from the heart. Using a “talking stick” a participant speaks without interruption or feedback while everyone else is encouraged to listen with full attention and compassion. The ultimate goal is to build resilient community through healing, trust, and respectful heart connection. Confidentiality is assured.

About the facilitator: John Olesen, MA, TEP, has been running experimental groups focused on helping people find connection for health and person growth for over 30 years. He is the former Clinical Supervisor at the Shanti Project in San Francisco serving people with life-threatening illness and a co-founder of the Bay Area Morena Institute.
