A mindfulness process created by a Los Angeles based Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Elizabeth Winkler. Elizabeth has been teaching Heart Surgery to children as a way for them to effectively process emotions in the heart. First, children learn to nurture their tool of focus by becoming aware of how unpleasant emotions manifest in their body. Children learn to bring their focus to the heart center as an effective way to free and release emotions. Children become active participants in releasing their challenges by using their beautifully creative and open imagination when they pull their emotions from the heart in Step 4. Engaging with their imagination, curiosity, and heart fosters self-awareness, focus, attention, and empowerment for each child as they move through the process. After Heart Surgery, children transition from feeling challenged to having fun freeing their heart.

Heart Surgery Logo

The Heart Surgery Logo

The founder of Heart Surgery Kit was motivated to create a kit that would teach children as young as 5 years old how to handle their heart emotions daily. Our logo captures the essence of our teachings here at Heart Surgery Kit.  
Our logo’s heart is rainbow colored which represents the rainbow of emotions that we all experience. The eye in the rainbow heart reminds us to bring our focus to the heart so that we can free our challenges through presence.  Nurturing hands hold the rainbow heart and remind us to use our hands to help heal and free ourselves from challenging emotions. When we clear our heart we have a clear mind. May we clear hearts and minds globally through presence.
