It's time for everyone to offer an update.
I trust the souls who are meant and ready to read this, will. Because we will come to it and hear it when we are ready. Think of it has a soul learning experience...one that comes at a high cost and yet sometimes that's what we choose to go into.
its' not black and white here people. Remember and trust you came to this site for a reason. That should be reason enough. Something doesn't feel right, you question. You trust your intuition, even if its "just a feeling" or inkling.
I had been deeply involved in this group for years. I will have to leave those details out for good protection. There are many loving people here, wanting beneficial change for themselves, their families and the world.
"Tools" (Geotrans: mindgems, integrations etc) are offered which have been available for considerably less or free to help facilitate change in one's life. These were orginally founded by Dorothy Espiau and those practiced under her. They are difficult to contact and wish no contact from anyone from The Way of the Heart. "Mmm interesting creation."
Both Espaiu's work with Geotran and such and Kimberly Herkert (cofounder of what's called THe Way of the Heart which incorporates these) parted ways as they strongly disagreed on things. (details not given)
In courses, Kimberly has expressed the betrayal from the original group and other team members who have decided to leave The Way of the Heart.
The Way of the Heart have to pay copyright to use the tools and then obviously charge as its a business and organization. Although some of the tools can be helpful and spiritual practices as well, it is said with experience, clarity and truth that it is not something that is of benefit for someone to ascend and evolve. I'm saying this because even if the tools work, the "field" or space that it is in is quite disfunctional and there have been long overdue issues that they have not been addressed. I'm not talking physical space. I'm talking about the shared energy field that one is sharing when they "use their tools." The teachers have not been intergrity and I have witnessed the harm it causes to those in this "Way."
If you need facts, this is what we have and an investigation is continuing until this house burns down to restructure a new one based on true atonomy, freedom and joy. (and that includes if you want to leave or if you don't want to take a class it won't be used against you, you won't be accused of being in ego for God's sake---besides, its better to be honest with yourself and have enough love for yourself and decide whether its ego or not, I'm out! That's it! :) True freedom is being fully integrated with your decision and it doesn't come from a manual or muscle testing or using your tools that they give you. But you can do so, if you so feel inclined. It's a great teaching.
Love doesn't control or manipulate and guess what....that's what the Way of the "heart" has done time and time again. If they don't like your response, they edit you, they ask you to please clear your field and check the manuals, they ask you to really look at your ego and shadow....because heaven forbid it doesn't gell with them! Interestingly enough, what you are taught might be your ego, could be your intuition telling you something isn't quite right for you anymore.
The Way of the Heart keeps putting more and more pressure in very manipulative ways to get more people, especially the higher ups and the vulnerable to making the world a better place, living their life mission according to what they see as right. More and more I have witnessed a cofounder telling others that they think they should do this and that because its showing in the field. More and more I've seen people trying to get others in to this "Way" through peer pressure and fear in subtle ways.
*****The Way of the Heart claims to have a close relationship with the Sufi community and they donate proceeds from their sales from CD's and their merchandise to The Hope Project associated with the Sufi Order International. We have checked and confirmed directly with the Order that they have never heard of them, including the coworkers and had to look them up.*****
As if this isn't enough, during courses and pilgrimage, I witnessed one of the cofounders swearing and yelling at a member during integration. It was absolutely unloving, nasty and no amount of excuses would condone this, especially from a spiritual teacher. Some other members shared with me that they were scolded for ridiculous things and they felt scared, belittled etc.
Usually at time like these, its recommended everyone check in with their manuals and their field to clear any energies (I won't get into it) that might have caused this.
The CD's they give out have artist's music on it and there is no written indication that they have received copyright on the use of these. I can share the list of artists if it interests anyone.
Even though many of the unfortunate things have been from one of the cofounder's, the lack of action, discernment and stern boundaried from the other is a concern.

If used, be mindful of it's use as everyone deserves respect, even though who don't always give it.
Like many organizations, religions etc, it is based on a hierarchy and thankfully this heirarchy and many are coming apart at the seams quickly in this new paradime which allows for more empowerment, truth and atonomy and experience. It leaves behind it spiritual manipulation, editing, controlling, clearing and spiritual obedience and distraction.
There are many affiliates or people that have used the tools to incorporate them in their business and thus promoting the Way of the Heart and there has been pressure to bring people into the courses and retreats. Every area is touched in one's life with this group. It effects family, many times people including myself have had a difficult time relating to the real world, the social world because of the work. Ironic that they offer integrations and speak to integrations as being the answer to many issues however, things were not integrating in the real world. Naturally the old will fall apart but this is different. People have really struggled in this work all in the name of spiritual evolution. People have left jobs permaturely, distanced from family and started their own business with this work, the label of Way of the Heart Integrations (which by the way, they are not. The work is Geotran and none of the integrations and those tools are from the Way of the Heart. Some individuals have gotten paid or gifted for getting others in to the group. This is not talked about much but it has been revealed to me and I have also experienced it first hand and it didn't feel right.
One of the main area coordinators who does energy work has put her own agenda into the mix, she is very invested in this group as being a part of it a long time. I think it may be difficult for her to see clearly and thus not a viable choice if you're looking for support, energy work and reiki. She has manipulated, whether consciously or not and saying that not continuing with this work means not awakening. What was also said when a dear friend left was that they were just going back to their bad habits of constantly searching and not going deeply with something.
Basically not being able to be intimate was used against this person. Hello, maybe being intimate with themselves meant getting the hell out. No one can say what is what for that person. Anything they can use that they know you're working has been used as a way of control.
The higher members were told shortly after a member abruptly left that they left due to their unresolved issues of shadow/ego/addiction that they were unwilling to look at and that everyone would need to be on top of their shadow work even more so and stay away. Its been confirmed that that is furthest from the truth and that the cofounder needs to look at their own shadow which runs deep as they try to keep things unwraps and prevent the others from daring to learn the truth.
I could keep going on about many things, good but mostly not good. It doesn't matter if these tools would save the world. The leaders in it are not in integrity, not transparent and not trustworthy leaders. What if this group is here to teach but definitely not in the way you expected it to be but rather from the opposite so you can again decide, no thanks once you awake up.
Ironically the thing (The Way of the Heart) that was to help me in my life became a distraction from my true heart's content and ran a tab and some debt but most of all, I have the gift of witnessing me reclaiming my power, my authority, my life and turning it around rapidly and manifesting things within weeks which didn't happen in even years with The Way of the Heart. THis is living in courage, with enough love to acknowledge that that's what it took for me to see.
Even so, there was a lot of value in many of the teachings. Its just many are available for free online, like the lovely Sufi mantras that we were strongly advised not to share because they were given directly to them and could only be taught by them. THat's bull shit. Its free for all to use and besides, the Sufi Order doesn't know these people so that story doesn't hold.
May others who want the short cut and not go through all this, may you receive your highest wisdom that is true for you.
Welcome to Your life, the Way of YOUR Heart, Your Soul and no one.....no one....oh did I say, no one can tell you how to live it. Even though they claim just that so you establish trust with them, they will then start to run and manipulate your life. I've seen it so many times from who to see, date, jobs, who to work with, live with etc (someone from the group instead of course!) etc.
Many start to sound all the same, I started talking the lingo as well...its just such a culture and people begin to lose their own identity, atonomy and its created a discusting fake dialogue where everyone speaks the same and acts the same because they are all on this wheel of needing approval or such...who knows. I have to honor and love that I have no problem being of opposite because what seems like shadow to some is a walk in the park for me in my true heart wanting to see true atomony, not because its something that will get approved or after clearing God knows what...by the way true spiritual masters werent't stuck in their rooms flipping through pages and pages of codes and clearings to get to the bottom of something in order to be happy, of service and manifest. A true master doesn't involve oneself with what needs to be corrected, altered, fixed, cleared. A true master lives in their love and finds it in the hard spots too, which become more seldom or less important when you do what you love. Shit naturally falls away because you're on path. Hold your intention that no matter what, you are on Course with your highest path. That means, even if the current vehicle you thought that is "taking you there" actually isn't.. things will be recified, things will be put right. Justice will be had in one's life.
Working in the manuals is not what you love. It's not you being of service. Its what many have been doing to waste a good enough of time and distract yourself from the real work, the real love, the real life. It bred more insecurity in others and myself, needing to do more and more and then some more because more shit kept coming up. When you look for it, guess what?.. more comes...its simple, what you focus on and what you sit in, you create. So, create more problems, more "spiritual" shit, if you'd like. Its just not the best use of your time or life.
You can be in service without them. (or with them if you choose!)
You can be in your Life Mission without them.
You can live without your manual, trust me I do frequently and have deeper trust, rather than not and I use it in a new way when I feel like it. That's right, when I feel like it which means when I feel guided to it,...which means it don't matter if you think thats ego or not!
You can live being integrated and integrating without spending time and money doing "their integrations." Declare it and get off that limited consciousness wheel.
You can be happy and create your life with less struggle and extreme polarities as many have encountered with this work (although there has been a time and place for it)...and you will not only evolve and ascend but you will do so as your awakened soul chooses. Ask your higher self/guides to clearly show you so that you can understand. And until then, don't act. Don't rush and honor what feels right for you. Don't act especially to apease someone waiting anxiously to get you in to that course, intro etc. Even more reason to not act or decide no unless you feel totally right about it. Don't rely on their tools, teachings to give you the answer. If what I'm writting doesn't feel true, then allow that. Honor that.I have no investment in it either way. A true teacher understands the complexities of our own way and allows for questioning and most of all has transparency. Much as been covered/hidden and NOT transparent.
I look forward to the transformation, to the burning of these ashes and the mercy for all of us on our journeys. Happy Holidays and transformation.
