What is it?
James's Heart-Canvas tool is one of the most powerful things I accessed in this course -- it was amazing to be able to reference a visual-spatial illustration of the complex worlds of feelings, needs, values, and states of emotional intensity. It really does help me "map out" naming the key elements of any NVC interaction.

I love the Heart Canvas! As someone who sometimes struggles to locate my feelings or name my needs, I’ve found the Heart Canvas to be an indispensable tool in my path of personal growth. I experience the Heart Canvas as a clear and potent tool that organizes the complex set of human needs, and the feelings that arise when these needs are or are not met. For me, as soon as I roll out my Heart Canvas, I know that I’ll get one step closer to knowing myself in the present moment, locating my feelings and needs. After I discover my feelings and needs using the Heart Canvas, I feel more grounded and connected to myself. Thank you for this much-needed and original tool for self-awareness and personal growth.
