About Healing The Scars


Healing the Scars, Inc is a New Mexico non profit organization that was founded as a container for the purpose of spreading HeartThread around the world and providing services, programs, relief and tools for those affected by the devastating effects of war, violence, abuse and trauma and for the training of providers of these services. It provides a comprehensive approach to providing assistance that weaves together a variety of modalities such as HeartThread, Art-, Dance- and Music- Therapies, professional and ministerial counseling services, Nature and Animal oriented programs, sustainable agriculture programs, spiritual and somatic practices and ceremony.

            These programs are offered as residential programs, collaborations with existing institutions and collaborations with grassroots communities. The focus is on providing a sense of safety and well being and aims to restore a sense of purpose and direction so memories and patterns of conditioned responses to difficult emotions and dis-functionality can be addressed and diffused, restoring the person’s ability to live a        happy, productive  and sustainable life. It provides opportunities for recognizing the interconnectedness of all life and respect for all cultures, ethnicities, traditions, ages and genders. It provides opportunities for constituents from differing and sometimes opposing sides of cultural, national and religious divides to come together in healing councils to transcend difference and animosities by recognizing the common humanity that all humans embody and honoring the common pain that is part of all human experience.

Healing the Scars  was created as a container for spreading and anchoring HeartThread around the world. The mission of Healing The Scars is to create a global network of people who live from their essence, healing themselves and each other, replacing ancestral belligerent behavior patterns with co-operative, peaceful, non-violent ways of living. Healing The Scars trains people around the world in the use of HeartThread. It is especially interested in helping to release the patterns of trauma and victimization from those affected by war, violence and abuse. One of the initial focuses of activity of HTS is to teach people how to heal themselves and each other, using HeartThread and other techniques.

HeartThread is designed to release conditioned patterns held in the body.  When we become consciously aware of our patterns, shifts occur in the body, mind, emotion and spirit, which, when released, allow us to live without restriction and fear. Our entrainment begins in the womb and throughout our lives we are conditioned into absorbing and exhibiting behavior patterns and belief systems that are in direct contradiction to our inherent nature.  Becoming the author of our own life means learning to live a congruent life. As we remove conditioning, we live congruently from our essence.

Healing the Scars organized the event Live As One, Occupy the Heart, on the 11th November, 2011 (11/11/11)

HTS is also active in promoting awareness about the respect for our natural resources and living a life in harmony with Nature and the Earth. In collaboration with the Santa Fe Water Awareness Group and the Santa Fe Global Water Festival, it promotes Medicine Water Wheel ceremonies to bless the waters, organizes events to honor World Water Day (March 22nd) and promotes and collaborates with other consciousness raising events such as Unify Fest, and supports  Indigenous peoples in their ceremonies and organizations, such as The Path and other groups.

Healing the Scars is a collaboration with Soul Support Systems, which is its current fiscal non profit umbrella. (www.soulsupportsystems.org)
