MENTORING: personal guidance in the path of the heart

iamHeart offers a beautiful and powerful method
for opening the heart and discovering the gifts it holds.
The techniques we use are simple to learn;
the result is incredibly grand.
Yet this path filled with wonder is rarely taken,
frequently abandoned once started,
and rarely pursued to the prize.

This wonderful method is best directed by a mentor who has used it and learned the steps. The iamHeart certified Mentor is specifically trained to guide people individually through the steps and levels of the iamHeart method, including the different seminars and retreats, and the application of the heart's guidance and power to the challenges of everyday life.

What is an iamHeart Mentor?
A person experienced with Heart Rhythm Practice who can help you learn it and apply it in your life. The mentor has the responsibility to help you take your next step in the path. Their role is an active one, initiating contact with you and encouraging you onward, toward your fulfillment. IAM has a method; mentorship is what makes iamHeart a school.

Is a Mentor a therapist?
Not a therapist of the usual kind. An iamHeart Mentor uses Heart Rhythm Therapy, a revolutionary method of personal development that encourages the development of uniqueness and pursuit of one's own purpose in life. IAM does not use a model of dysfunction; we see a person's weaknesses as evidence of an inner quality that could be developed. We follow a model that leads to the completion of the personality, accomplished through the inspiration and power of the heart. Most importantly, the Mentor offers you their direct experience with the divine.

What does the mentor do? The mentor helps you answer three questions:

  1. Accomplishment: What is your most pressing need, in which you are currently engaged? This need is connected to a specific dimension of your heart and will immediately respond to your heart's development in that area.

  2. Realization: What is your internal model of reality, that which determines how your life unfolds? How does your understanding of the heart create the challenges that appear in every area of your life and your attitude toward others and yourself?

  3. Character: How can you be a better example of your archetype: a wise, magnanimous, inspiring, loving person? The final result of our work is a completed human personality that demonstates your own ideal and realization. The development of a noble character that accepts responsibility with compassion and grace is the ultimate aim of a spiritual worker in our time.

These three questions direct the work with the heart into concrete and practical applications, and they also encompass the whole ideal of a heart that is healed, receptive, powerful and servicable. The mentor will help you apply Heart Rhythm Practice to each of these three questions.

How do you interact with an iamHeart Mentor?
You and your Mentor would arrange a monthly meeting of an hour, perhaps at an IAM seminar, at the Mentor's home, or over the phone. Or the time could be accumulated for a less frequent, longer meeting, or divided into more frequent, shorter meetings. Mentorship is a year-long contract for both parties. The fee for the year is $1,380, divided into 12 monthly payments of $115. If additional time with your Mentor is needed it may be available, depending on your Mentor's availability, at $115 per hour. You will be expected to attend at least one IAM seminar or webcourse a year while you're in the mentoring program since your experience with the IAM method is the foundation of your work with your Mentor.

We urge you to take advantage of this program, combining Heart Rhythm Practice and a personal relationship with someone who has received the training and accepted the responsibility for helping others.
