Power of the Heart…

The heart to heart connection is what exists when memory fails. Marya’s educational workshops focus on how to meet the human being underneath the manifestation of the illness. Being empowered to connect with people in ways that truly matter is what these classes are all about.

Marya has designed the Power of the Heart learning experiences to reach the heart of the participant. In these classes, the participant will learn all the facts that they are required by state regulations to know, and more importantly, they will understand why and how to connect effectively with their clients, residents and/or loved ones.
