Join us at the 2014 Banff Couples Conference
The Shared Heart
A Conscious Couples Journeywith Joyce and Barry Vissell
“The closer we come to another, the better we come to know ourselves.” –from Light in the Mirror, by Barry and Joyce Vissell
Spiritual teacher Ram Dass describes Joyce and Barry as a couple who live the yoga of love and devotion. They are two people who have raised three children and been deeply in love for 48 years.
Their deeply heart-oriented approach has made an impact upon many thousands of people’s lives through their books The Shared Heart, Models of Love, Risk To Be Healed, The Heart’s Wisdom, Meant To Be, and A Mother’s Final Gift, and through their talks and workshops on relationship, parenting and personal growth.
In 1983 they founded and directed the non-profit Shared Heart Foundation, dedicated to changing the world one heart at a time.
“The Vissell’s work will bless your whole life.” —John Bradshaw
