How did Heart 2 Hart begin? It began at the kitchen table.
We started with a vision of combining our personal know how with ideas, ideals and real life situations, plucked from both our own lives and those of our clients and friends.
We are 2 women, students of life forever open to learning, adjusting ourselves as we go, letting go of what isn’t working, asking questions about what is. We are forever soaking up new things and sharing what we can with others. It has been the feedback of those in our workshops and our radio show that has helped us to grow and fine tune our message – a message we all need to be reminded of constantly; that to live consciously every day one must be engaged and present in every way.
How? by asking questions.
It’s not just required, it’s essential — for us, for you, and for the planet.
So here’s a question for you.
How many relationships do you know that are based on possibilities and not control?
What does that look like for you?
What does that look like for us?
We live in separate cities, we enjoy different things, we see each other a few times a year, we talk when we can – sometimes four times a day and sometimes once a month. We lead very different lives with very different hours.
How do we have the relationship we do?
How does this relationship work?
Kelsey: “We laugh at each other and learn together. I don’t know of many relationships that are not in competition with each other. We love to hug, hold hands and give each other squeaky kisses. We are in gratitude of each other.”
Susan: “I think Humor is key in any relationship. People often demand to be taken seriously as proof of who they are. Really????”
Kelsey & Susan: “We work with each other with no point of view and ask questions and listen. We ask lots of questions all the time of ourselves, of each other, when things are great and when things are not so great. Where we fail, when we fall, we dust each other off and listen to each other and we don’t try and solve the problem. We listen.”
What is listening?
Susan: “Well, it’s not just about me. It’s about me being there with someone else, for someone else. It’s the space I am in where I am present with you and acknowledge where you are with no requirement of you or me and no point of view about what comes up. It’s kind of like dancing in the moment.”
Kelsey: “When I was in college, I would call mom and ask her to play one of two roles. Weird I know. The roles were these: mom or friend. Certain questions/stories required a mom’s ear and others a friend. How cool is that? Now we can communicate without that divide.”
Susan: “People are drawn to us because we are direct with each other and we have fun, so much fun. We can be enemies and lovers, we change all the time together and apart. Really, our relationship is about the willingness to give each other the space to grow, with no decisions, judgments or conclusions. We have different points of views, different talents; we don’t have to be the same. What we do share is the joy of life. And it’s infectious!”
Heart 2 Hart is us being us – however that shows up. How did we get so lucky????
