A Leader for Change Chapter is an event that creates opportunities for others that are still silent about their own stories:  to see, feel and understand that they are not alone. That whatever has happened to them has indeed also happened to others. It is a place where friends and family can get together and share laughter and tears and be inspired by others who have and are finding their voices. A place of rejoining, a place with guilt, shame and fear did not reside.

It is a heart-centered event that offers encouragement and understanding and ultimately a place to unleash the burdens of their stories with guidance and support. Everyone has the opportunity to become a part of something bigger than they are, a place where all of our stories matter, and where we learn that sharing our stories is truly healing, not only for you but for others.

You can become members, join our newsletter to stay connected and/or write their own story in one of our Anthology Books.

The future of Sacred Hearts Rising is global movement with women, men and children sharing on our stage and/or in our books breaking the silence around the world.

Unfortunately, we will never run out of stories but standing together we will create a positive change for others through our own journey.
