I help people connect to their emotional strength.
Hi! My name is Ellen Pierce and I am a leader of the heart!
When I was studying to get my master’s in contemplative psychotherapy, the only Buddhist inspired university in North America, I went to a conference with the AGPA to learn more about group therapy.
I was in a practice group and there was a woman who continually shared her own emotional and internal experience. At one point the group leader turned to her and said, “Thank you for being the leader of the heart for our group today.”
What he meant by that was that she was expressing the truth of her emotional experience with us, she was making it easier for the rest of us in the group to share our experience too.
She was leading through being herself. She was leading through being congruent with herself: She let her emotions match what she was expressing to us. She was vulnerable and she was fluid in her emotions. She harnessed the power of those emotions to connect us all more deeply to each other and ourselves. Her expression gave us more permission for us to feel and be who we really are.
That really inspired me! So I took that on as a challenge, a lifestyle and a way of being. Studies show that when our emotional expression matches our internal feeling, we are happier.
It has transformed my world. It is my why!
I come here to share the fullness of who I am with you. Sometimes it takes unwinding internalized ways of being from family or society that become painfully restrictive. In turn I trust that me being me gives you permission and freedom to be more of who you really are. I hope you’ll join me as a leader of the heart and do the same for me!
