Loving Heart Connections® Practitioners

Becoming a Loving Heart Connections® Practitioner

Loving Heart Connections® was designed, created by and has been used for more than a decade by Jane Vair Bissler, Ph.d., LPCC-S, FT. Click here to schedule a session or register for training.

As many of you may be aware, up to 15% of bereaved individuals meet the criteria for complicated grief (Bonanno, 2004, Forstmeier & Maercker, 2007) which could potentially lead to an increased risk for suicidal ideation (Latham & Prigerson, 2004), social and occupational impairment (Monk, et al., 2006), physical health problems (Prigerson et al., 1997), and other mental health concerns (Melhem et al., 2001). Continuing bonds explains the transformations of relationships through grief and in general have been defined as a natural and adaptive experience (Klass, Silverman & Nickman, 1996). These continuing bonds show an active sense of presence, experiences of the deceased person in any of the senses, belief in the person’s continuing active influence on thoughts or events and a conscious incorporation of the characteristics or virtues of the dead into the self (Klass & Steffan, 2018). “The resolution of grief involves continuing bonds that survivors maintain with the deceased and that these continuing bonds can be a healthy part of the survivor’s ongoing life” (Silverman and Klass, 1996 P. 22).

Loving Heart Connections® uses well researched unique elements from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), bilateral stimulation done through tapping, sounds and eye movements and is uniquely designed to provide a spiritual connection between the client and their deceased loved ones. This modality is referred to as a ONE AND DONE! You will have all the information you need to continue making these Loving Heart Connections® on your own. There will be NO reason for you to schedule a second or subsequent session with your trained facilitator.

This original modality has been very successful, showing 97% of all participants have reported significant Loving Heart Connections™. Their reported experiences include:

  • afterlife communications

  • physical emotional and spiritual healing

  • different environments

  • intense emotions

  • whatever is needed by the client at the time of the session

  • out of body experiences

  • shamanic journeying

  • meaningful symbols

  • multiple connections with their loved ones

Please see the TESTIMONIAL page for their individual reports of their amazing experiences.

Experiencing a Loving Heart Connections session is a requirement for all practitioners before attending the class. It can be done by any trained Loving Heart Connections® facilitator.

You will receive a certificate of training at the end of the training day and will be invited to include your name and contact information on this site after meeting all post training requirements.
