Louise Livingstone, PhD – The Spiralling Heart: Leading us towards Reconnection?


How could seeing the heart differently affect our engagement in daily life?

 

This talk moves deeper into the philosophical implications of one of the hearts that Louise met during her PhD research. In her work, Louise communicated with, and deeply explored, the different hearts that live within her. One of these hearts presented itself as a spiral – becoming known to Louise as her ‘holistic’ or ‘spiralling’ heart. In this session, we expand our awareness to re-imagine the heart as a spiral. No longer a symbol of division with a wall separating ‘left side’ from ‘right side’ (a view put forward almost 400 years ago by William Harvey and his followers), exciting conversations in specialist areas of cardiology are bringing forward the possibility for the heart to be re-visioned as a guiding symbol of reconnection for our troubled times, embodying the spiralling pattern of life within its own physiology and function. In this talk, we open our awareness to consider the philosophical implications of how seeing the heart in this different way might change our engagement with the world.

About the speaker:

 

Louise Livingstone, PhD, is Founder of the Heart Sense Research Institute. She has an MSc in Holistic Science with distinction from the Schumacher College in Devon, UK, and a PhD from Canterbury Christ Church University in Transformative Learning. During her research she spent four years in deep conversation with her own heart, diving deeply into its many layers and learning its wisdom. Her work aims to re-imagine the long-forgotten, wise and intelligent heart for contemporary times; guiding individuals into the numerous layers of their own hearts, illuminating different hearts to help navigate daily life with heart-based awareness. Louise has a flourishing private mentoring practice, and runs a three-month introduction to Heart Sense personal development course based on her research, within which participants meet four different hearts. She also runs a one-year apprenticeship; a programme within which participants work deeply with six more hearts. For more information visit: www.heartsenseresearch.co.uk.
