Liz Velazquez, Disruptive Channel, Restoration of Truth Conduit, Life Path Guide. 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.  She has also studied and practiced various healing, meditation, and alternative modalities like Reiki, Raja yoga, the Enneagram, and the teachings of the Kabbalah and Bible. Her experiences, education and training, combined with intuitive knowing, have deepened her love and desire to assist others.  To this aim, she uses a three-step process that nurtures the individual's desire to release obstacles that stand in the way of reaching their personal ideals.  This, in turn, opens the path into the Heart center and the realization of their Unique Essence.  In the final step, Liz guides the individual in practical ways of integrating that knowing for self-fulfilment and benefit to the world.

Meet Our Marketing/Special Events Coordinator
My name is Erin Smith Emmons and I’m proudly a part of the Heart Center team. I moved to western North Carolina about five years ago from Alaska. It was there that I found my deep relationship with Mother Earth and our environmental impact. I served a native village as an environment specialist in sustainability and preservation of natural resources; but mostly living off the land in a respectful way. I feel these experiences led me to help be a steward of our environment and realize that we are all connected to this divine earth. It brings me much joy to represent this special place of the Heart Center in promoting awareness to enlightening events, and continuing the connection among people who share the desire to gain contentment and the peace that the Heart Center embodies.
