Linda Crawford, Ph.D., spiritual innovator, teacher and founder of Heart’s Journey, has one goal with her work: that is to show people how to free themselves from the limiting and fearful thinking that has controlled their lives. For over 35 years, Linda has guided thousands of people internationally.

As she gently facilitates people through a retreat or personal session, they find that their thinking begins to change. They become more connected with their unique and authentic self, and their thoughts become aligned with who they really are. They begin to separate themselves from their limiting personal narratives and see themselves in an expanded and empowered way.

Essential Self Retreat

This four-day guided exploration of the eight essential areas of your life, lovingly explores and questions the main aspects of who you think you are. It brings to awareness limiting beliefs and perspectives that have held you back, looks at how you created them in the first place, and how you can un-create them.

During the 4 days you will:

  • Separate yourself from your limiting personal beliefs and see yourself in an expanded and empowered way
  • Develop your spiritual awareness and connect with the Essence of Your Being, your true authentic self
  • Understand your life purpose by clarifying and embracing your unique gifts and talents

Linda F.Manilius, NY

“This retreat had the best information – the Playbook and the perfect Impression Cards. It had really well organized time, with learning and sharing. I transformed my life in a few days letting go of the past, my negative thoughts, and my role as a caretaker to one of caring and honoring myself and speaking my truth.”

Diane O.Atascadero, CA

We all have one or more areas of our life that we habitually place at the bottom of our priority list. They’re usually the areas that we feel the least familiarity or have accumulated the greatest number of limiting beliefs.

Your Heart Map is a way to take a good, hard look at each facet of your life, and quickly discover those areas. With the simple intention for honest and sincere exploration, your unconscious mind, as well as your Essential Self, will begin to present opportunities to achieve greater mastery and allow a more authentic expression. Consider each area like a spoke of a wheel: When one of the spokes is shorter than the others, it can throw the whole thing off balance. This simple yet powerful exercise is what we refer to as Heart Mapping. It gives you an instant snapshot of where you are, where you want to go and what to focus on to get there.

Come travel with Linda Crawford as you see your true nature appear. Every step of your Heart’s Journey is an opening to freedom.
