The Courses Are About You
Here's How The Series Of Courses Help To Tell You Who You Are:
A specific purpose––one’s happiness and environmental sustainability––determines the route of the Heartwood Path. Follow its length to a better future.
Course One: Kosmos is an overture to the Heartwood Path. Important pre-requisite information is found here.
Course Two: Logos describes the origin and structure of integrity. This information is vital to the avoidance of constant struggles in life.
Course Three: Egos anchors one’s individual gifts. Doing so enables each participant to put their own stamp on the creation of a magnificent future.
Course Four: Ecos connects one to the whole, a source of infinite wisdom and creativity. This course helps one improve relationships, make good associations, and benefit from the intelligence of nature.
In its entirety, the Heartwood Path improves the Self so you that you can make a positive difference in the world. You can do it on your own, you can join with others online, or you can sign up for professional guidance. With or without assistance, begin by getting to know yourself better. One very good way to accomplish this important task is to determine your totem animal, as in the following activity.
If this is not a day when you prefer to spend time in nature without an agenda, do the following activity:
Learning What Makes You Unique In The World
Sixth Introductory Heartwood Path Activity: Learning What Makes You Unique In The World. With pen and journal in hand, go to an attractive natural area and, in a spirit of appreciation, look around you to find something that is attractive to you. Once you find an aspect of nature that is attractive to you continuously for at least ten seconds, use the optimal functioning you receive along with your continued attraction (which can be thought of as your consent to do this activity with the help of the attractive natural being) to make an initial choice of your totem animal that represents your personality type. If you find this activity difficult it only demonstrates the need for you to continue heading down the Heartwood Path. After learning more about your personality type in the Egos Course, you may decide that the choice you make here is no longer suitable. By picking a representative animal now, however, you will begin a wonderful process of self-discovery that continues through all of the Heartwood Path courses. With that said, choose your Animal Totem now. It will be helpful during your initial guidance sessions and discussions with others. Only a choice of one of the sixteen choices is allowed for this activity. You can always change it later.
