Mighty Heart Pilot Course

10-weeks training course to systematically grow the power of our own hearts to heal and deal with the challenges we face. 

October 5 to December 12, Tuesday Afternoons and every second Saturday Afternoon 1500 UK time.

(Sessions recorded in case you have to miss one.)

In advance of the pandemic, Dr Scilla Elworthy had a premonition that we were going to face a crisis that would require us to utilise every possible capacity of ourselves, most particularly the power of our own heart. As the secret to all transformation, the heart is indeed our greatest engine that we can use to turn anger into compassionate action.

We invite you to learn from Scilla and some of the world’s best teachers on heart intelligence to become an effective changemaker by transforming conflicts that may be internal, at family, organisation or even at national level, using the skills and insights drawn from Scilla’s latest book, The Mighty Heart.


  • Skills and tools that help you address whatever crisis you’re facing;

  • Greater self-knowledge, compassion and presence;

  • Ability to make wiser more grounded decisions;

  • Connection to a diverse and aligned community of effective changemakers;

  • An exponential increase in effectiveness as a pioneer for peace;

  • Systematic growth of a mightier heart;

  • Transformation of your sphere of influence (we ask you to bring a case of a conflict or challenge you're involved in to work on during the program)

What is included

10 modules over 10 weeks, each comprising: 

  • Welcome video by Dr Scilla Elworthy with top tips for the module;
