Mieke Vander Heyden will guide creative practices to unlock your inner wisdom and power. With her unique background in integrative psychotherapy; including  movement and dance, drama and art therapy, creative art methodologies and Family Constellations, Mieke will draw upon her many tools to facilitate exercises of empowerment, sovereignty and liberation in which you will activate techniques to align and activate your optimal being.

It’s Mieke’s deepest belief that we all can create a life full of abundance and magic when we align ourselves and learn to be in and enjoy the present moment. No matter what we have encountered during our life, we all have the capacity to transform any burden into a special treasure. Life is one big adventure full of surprises. She deeply feels that we all can learn how to turn our life-experiences into greater wisdom.   

Mieke and other guest facilitators from the Shala Sol team will guide various classes and ceremonies as well. The group of guides and facilitators on this journey is sure to enlighten and connect with all that are ready and inspired to awaken their full creative potential and emerge into their own powerful new found happiness and inspiration.  To learn more about Mieke and transformational retreat offerings visit Moving Hearts Therapy
