About Heart iQ
Heart iQ's mission is to move us away from a culture of separation, into a culture of connection.
As a practice, Heart iQ is a way to deepen your connection with yourself, your intimate relationships and the world around you, by doing your inner work with others in community.
When we practice Heart iQ together, an amplified field is created providing an environment that is filled with profound insight, nourishing intimacy and deep healing.
Heart iQ exists to help shape a better world for future generations to come. That's why we believe the greatest gift you can give to the world, is to become a fully healthy you.
"The greatest gift you can give to the world,
is to become a fully healthy you."
Christian Pankhurst, Founder of Heart iQ
About The Founder
Christian Pankhurst is a world-leading expert in group dynamics, conscious communication, and the art of circle facilitation. Christian is a master conductor of the collective wisdom that emerges when resonant hearts come together, and his piercing clarity lovingly cuts through bullshit while he holds a space of unconditional love for what wants to emerge in the now.
Christian teaches how to tap into the power of the collective wisdom or 'field' so facilitators learn how to heal themselves and others simultaneously through a process that is embodied and joyful rather than heady and focused on solving problems.
Christian's unique capacity to translate complex group dynamics into simple, clear and practical insights is the reason why so many seek him out to get trained in the art of small and large group facilitation.
“I can’t imagine my life now without Heart IQ. My friends and family can’t believe the transformation! I’m a completely transformed person. After years of just ‘getting by,’ I finally feel like myself again and that everything is possible. My heart cannot thank you enough!”
The purpose of Heart IQ™ is to:
Find your unique connection with the Divine
Become fully embodied and alive, both emotionally and energetically
Heal your past by rebuilding a loving, safe relationship with yourself
Build Heart Intelligent relationships with others
Being part of a resonant Heart Intelligent Community of loving, supportive friends.
The Heart IQ™ Method achieves this purpose by providing a safe environment to feel more of you and become self aware. Over time, you will begin to heal at a deep level, not through fixing your problems or focusing on your past, but through the practice of expanding your emotional-energetic range.
ACCEPTING ‘WHAT IS’
In Heart IQ™, we prioritise the acceptance of what is moving in any given moment - which means that we agree to the practice of not making who you are and where you are in the moment wrong or shameful. This creates safety, which is the most important aspect of our facilitation.
MAXIMUM IMPACT - MINIMUM INTERVENTION
When working with you, we act from the intention to make the maximum impact with the minimum amount of intervention - which means that we operate with the guideline of ‘less is more’ as a way to trust the intelligent life force that animates each of us.
LEARNING TO LISTEN AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART
Through your study of Heart IQ™, you will practice listening to and following your heart - trusting that life will provide you with the bread crumbs of wisdom you need to follow as you open your Heart and mind to receiving what is real and possible in the moment. As Heart IQ™ Coaches and Facilitators, we agree to support you by following the unfolding of ease and inspiration rather than moving toward a goal at all costs.
YOU ARE INTRINSICALLY GOOD
We live by the truth that we are all intrinsically good and that goodness lies at the core of everyone. All of us carry wounding, some of which will permanently change us. However, our intrinsic goodness remains intact and accessible in spite of our wounding.
ALL PARTS OF YOU ARE WELCOME
We include ALL parts of the Self in this work - dark, light, painful, joyful, awkward, refined, tender, confronting, closed and generous. The purpose is to integrate and heal all the parts of you.
ALL HEALING HAS ITS OWN TIME
We believe that all healing has its own time; therefore, we allow you to be where you are in the moment rather than advising or counseling you to be in a different place. As a result, we don't push you where you don't want to go or hold you accountable for the changes you want to make in your life.
YOU’LL LEARN MORE QUICKLY IN A GROUP
We believe that healing is more powerful when experienced in a group. Even though the stories of our pain are different, pain itself is collective and requires others to digest it fully. Through this state of collective healing, life can spontaneously reorganise and transform.
