To open minds, we must open hearts first…women_and_man_reading

At The Eden Alternative, we understand that to open minds, you must open hearts first. We offer an array of participatory training experiences that honors this natural evolutionary process. Our Open Hearts Series features our foundational offerings, which inspire participants to reframe their perspectives and develop a solid understanding of the Ten Principles.

Once care partner teams are inspired by the offerings available through the Open Hearts Series, the Open Minds Series takes the learning deeper, by providing a powerful opportunity to refine awareness and strengthen specific skills needed to effect change.
