Meet our founder, Liz Velazquez. Liz has been studying truth principles since the age of 13, when she attended a Unity Church, where she was introduced to metaphysical Truths and meditation. She received a degree in Social/Cultural Anthropology from the University of California, Davis, because she wanted to understand people from a holistic perspective – Social, Economic, cultural, religious and physical. Her experiences, education and training have deepened her love and desire to assist others in understanding and healing their humanness,
while at the same time, assisting them to go deeper into their Spiritual nature – the Truth of our being. To this aim, she has studied various healing modalities like Reiki and the ancient teachings of the Kabbalah. In her service at The Heart Center, she uses a three-step process, combined with intuitive direction, to assist individuals to surrender what they are not; move into their Heart center to reconnect with their wholeness and unique Truth; and, finally, to integrate this into a practice of service to the world.
