7-month Trauma-informed Practitioner Training in Heart & Energy Medicine

Learn nervous system healing practices and heart and energy medicine grounded in trauma-informed space holding.

Integrate nervous system healing, somatic exploration, heart wisdom and energy medicine into your practice with clients.

Through the Way of the Luminous Heart™ you will learn how to interweave the mystical with the intuitive wisdom of your body to be earthed in your magic and deepen your sacred space holding.

You will discover how to map the body to listen to the story the body is seeking to share and to support your clients to return to their blueprint of safety and thriving.

This is a sacred journey of awakening the depths of your own inner healer and alchemist as well as learning how to awaken the innate healing capacity of your clients.

Luminous Heart is an embodied, trauma-informed training for coaches, space holders, therapists, leaders, mystics, way showers and earth keepers who are ready to awaken their earthed magic and innate alchemical wisdom.

It is a remembrance of the ancient knowing and wisdom of our hearts and bodies that we carry within us as our birthright.

You will learn ancient wisdom practices, rooted in the heart, the body and the earth, that bring you home to your luminous heart.

Throughout this 7-month mentorship you will experience a profound personal journey of transformation, as well as learning how to support others to live guided by the compass of their heart and body wisdom.

Through this training you will have the option of becoming certified as The Way of the Luminous Heart™ Practitioner to support clients through heart and energy medicine practices.

Now, more than ever, we are being called to return home to our body and to listen to the wisdom we carry within our bones.

It is integral to be a coach and space holder who is trauma-informed and understands how to recognise trauma and to support clients to find safety in their body.

I believe that this is essential knowledge for every space holder in order to cultivate safe spaces for our clients.

Somatic healing is at the core of redreaming our world into communities of caring where we live deeply present in our hearts and bodies and earthed in our magic. Somatic exploration is a way of knowing ourselves deeply from within through the sensate experiences of our body wisdom.

Heart medicine is the honouring of our heart as the gateway to unlocking our ancient wisdom.

Through alchemy we unlock a portal to our ancient wisdom and wholeness, which allows us to receive the mystical messages from our ensouled world through our open hearts.

Luminous Heart is the remembrance that our hearts are interwoven with the primordial heart of the earth within an ecosystem of all hearts, which I call Heart Ecology™.

It is the knowing that as we tend to the biome of our hearts we are tending to the collective heart, the one, whole heart of humanity.

The Way of the Luminous Heart is grounded in somatic practices and exploration that help clients return to the parasympathetic rest and digest part of the nervous system and to our innate entrainment with the rhythm and heartbeat of Mother Earth, our blueprint.

This online training will support you to deepen your skills in heart and energy medicine to support your deepest transformation as well as guiding others in theirs.

You will become deeply earthed in your magic where your intuitive magic is grounded and embodied at a cellular level.

Luminous Heart is rooted in somatic embodied practices in being guided by the innate wisdom of our bodies, our hearts, the field and the earth.

It is a sacred pathway to remembering the truth of who we are & to rewilding our hearts back home through Heart Medicine, Energy Medicine, Earth Medicine & Somatic Wisdom.

This is an invitation to:

The Way of the Luminous Heart™ has birthed from my own journey of alchemy through interweaving my body wisdom with the mystical portals of the heart and the earth.

It has emerged from my bone-deep learnings from over 25 years of inner healing explorations, and 12+ years experience supporting womxn in their transformation as a somatic practitioner and energy medicine weaver.

This trauma-informed Practitioner training will teach you how to unravel stuck survival energy in the nervous system through gentle somatic practices and energy medicine to support the deepest alchemy in your clients. 

The Way of the Luminous Heart™ supports clients to return home to the truth of who they are, reclaiming of the wisdom that lives deep within their bones and cells.

In this training you will learn:

  • How to access your magic & deep intuitive knowing through your unique Intuitive Energy Blueprint™
  • How to awaken your inner healer & your clients
  • How to understand the nervous system as a spiritual nerve to unlock your wisdom portals
  • How to map the nervous system
  • How to be guided by your intuitive knowing & the field
  • How to expand the capacity of your nervous system through heart, energy & earth-based rituals & guide others
  • How to unravel stuck survival energy stored in the body to restore wholeness, vitality and thriving

During these revolutionary times on earth, it is essential to be deeply earthed and embodied in our hearts, our magic and our sacred soul gifts.

As multi-dimensional beings we are here to honour every aspect of our sensate experience in this body, holding with reverence both our humanity and our divinity as embodied souls on earth.

To support others and ourselves through these wild times, it is essential to understand:

  • How to map the nervous system to provide a safe container to unlock the life force energy within survival templates
  • How to access the sacred gateway of heart wisdom and knowing to live our most wholehearted life, rooted in our interbeingness with the earth.
  • How to weave energy medicine to reimagine our stories and live our destiny.

Our hearts are the portal to remember who we really are and hold the blueprint of our essence, our most luminous self.

It is a time where we are being called inwards to reawaken and re-remember our deepest heart wisdom and ancient knowing.

Luminous Heart is an honouring of our innate capacity to heal ourselves through the wisdom waiting within to be reclaimed.

Every transmission within this journey contains sacred activations to invoke your remembrance of why your soul chose to be here during this potent time on earth.

It is a calling home into the unique gifts and magic you are here to share with the world in harmony with the earth.

Your Heart Guide

Hi I’m Francesca.

I am a heart alchemist, mystic, somatic practitioner and energy medicine weaver.

I am devoted to supporting womxn to reclaim the ancient wisdom they carry deep within their hearts and bodies and to deeply embody this at a cellular and bone-deep level. Luminous Heart has been birthed from my experience guiding womxn in their homecoming through the wildest terrain of their hearts and bodies, as well as over 25 years of my own personal healing and shadowland explorations. I dance between worlds, illuminating the path through the shadow, and am devoted to supporting others to meet themselves with their whole hearts and whole bodies.

Love Notes

“Francesca has taught me about finding attuned supportive resources for myself. Francesca is able to provide an energetic container of gentle and unwavering compassion and become an anchor for my nervous system to hook onto. She allows my nervous system to find its own pathways to healing, living and thriving. I am so glad and relieved I followed my intuitive heart to contact Francesca. Francesca is an integral part of a new paradigm of healing and living we are coming into – returning to sacred humanity, helping us all find our innate wisdom through the stories of our body’s, and the sacred source of deep connection and heart transformation.”

“Imagine being held in a safe space by a circle of women where you felt completely seen, loved, and supported. Sinking deeper and deeper into the knowing that there is nothing wrong with you. That’s what Francesca’s offerings are about. She is caring, compassionate and full of heart. Her unique presence can truly help you be more attuned to yourself, connect to your truth and live more authentically. She inspires women to walk each other home, to the beauty that we all are. I am feeling full of gratitude, feeling more courageous to keep living my life from a place of authenticity and carrying an inner tribe of unconditional love and support.”

“It is absolutely fascinating to me how much can be achieved with tenderness and compassion. Francesca has come to symbolize that for me. I feel empowered and liberated in a way I never thought I would. With her I learned to track my own internal processes in a way that I am now able to hold myself though challenges with the same compassion that she offered to me so generously. Francesca is generous, genuine and caring and she knows exactly which levers to use to ensure lasting resolve in the nervous system. I have never known a more effective approach or met someone so simultaneously gentle and effective as her. If you consider working with Francesca, expect her expertise and her heart of gold to safely guide you to a place where you and your potential become one again. I highly recommend working with her. I don’t know where I would be today without her support.”
