What Is The Heart IQ Network?
The Heart IQ™ Network is a socially-conscious organization founded by Christian Pankhurst and led by an incredible team of Heart Intelligent individuals, along with the support of a Review Council that assists the organization in maintaining the highest standards of excellence and integrity.
Here at the Heart IQ™ Network, we have a big vision:
We want to create a heart intelligent world where Heart IQ™ is infused into every business, school, relationship and individual.
The Heart IQ™ Network is an organization that focuses on creating ethical and social change in the world. We accomplish our mission by creating and delivering high-quality training events, online programs and services that operate in partnership with a non-profit Heart IQ™ Foundation which supports our community, and in the near future, projects that bring Heart IQ™ into hard-to-reach areas around the world.
Although financial growth is an important part of our sustainable strategy to impact the world, it’s not the primary objective for us. We don’t do this for the money. For us, profit is a means to a bigger end, which is to ultimately create Heart IQ™ eco-communities that function off-the-grid in a resource-based economy.
To manifest this vision, the Heart IQ™ Network provides an integrated solution to address one of the biggest problems facing the world today: Disconnection. It’s our disconnected state with ourselves, nature and each other that leads to the state of dysfunction in our world today. An even bigger challenge is that many people are disconnected from their own disconnection, which makes it easier to be complacent with the fragmented state of the world. From this detached place, it’s more common for people to dismiss the importance and necessity of this work because they can’t feel the inner disturbance that would normally cause them to take some kind of action in response to what’s going on around them. In addition to feeling numb, people can often feel that they’ve already tried so many things to improve their lives, or feel that they’ve reached a level of okayness that is ‘acceptable enough’ to quell the urgency for further change. It’s a special tribe of people who want to live their lives from the curious inquiry of wondering what else is possible - not from a place of making things wrong for the way they are, but simply from a sense of knowing that there’s more to be experienced.
The Heart IQ™ Network is focused on delivering its services to key groups of people who are searching for sustainable means of improvement that will transform their own as well as the lives of others into a healthier and more vital experience of life.
Those we wish to serve are:
Individual adults & couples who are fully aware that their lives, relationships, and the world around them could be functioning better. They are people who have chosen to make their personal development a priority and are ready to awaken to a new level of potential in themselves while inspiring others to reach toward a brighter reality as well.
Coaches, healers, therapists and teachers who are looking for a more Heart Centered and holistic approach to their professional work. They are people who want to learn how to leverage a deeper understanding of group dynamics and the amplified field as intentional resources in their work.
Parents who want to offer their children a new way of thriving in the world. Children are a key part of the Heart IQ™ Network’s mission given that the children of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. Heart IQ™ is best developed at an early age since it’s naturally present in children before they’re shown by society how to suppress and redirect these natural skills. The Heart IQ™ Network has plans to develop a new template for education, which includes building Heart IQ™ Schools where children and their parents can benefit from this unique method of self-discovery.
Businesses who wish to be financially successful and make a socially-conscious impact by running a Heart Intelligent enterprise. We can provide customized solutions for everything from product creation and team management to heart intelligent customer service protocols.
What Does The Heart IQ™ Network Do?
Heart IQ™ Awakening is the area of our organization that focuses purely on your personal Heart IQ™ education. This is where you’ll find the training you need to embody more Heart Intelligence in your own life. We offer a variety of courses, events and services, each designed to deliver a fundamentally transformative experience. Our offerings include online home study programs, single-day intensives, multi-day retreats and small group coaching. If you are new to Heart IQ™ and want a place to start, click here.
The Heart IQ™ Academy is our professional training arm where you can learn the art of coaching and facilitation using the Heart IQ™ Method. We offer a range of programs that cater to everyone. Whether you’re a veteran or newcomer, we have a package that’s a match for what you need. Do you want to be certified at the highest level and work in our organization delivering our courses? Or perhaps you have your own brand, message and vision and want to integrate this powerful work into what you offer? Either way, the Heart IQ™ Academy can take you where you want to go, both personally and professionally.
Heart IQ™ Relationships is where you'll discover trainings and live events that focus on building Heart Centered relationships. Whether you’re ready to grow as a couple, or on your own, or even as a parent, you’ll find what you need to create the intimacy you’ve been craving. Topics covered include conflict resolution, intimacy building, sexual awakening and heart-centered communication. This work not only helps you to attract the perfect partner for you, but has shown repeatedly to be an essential ingredient in healing broken relationships, reigniting passion and connection, and bringing families closer together.
The Heart IQ™ Community is a tribe of Heart IQ™ inspired people. Currently, our community is thriving mostly in virtual form, meeting regularly on live connection calls. However, once a year, our global community meets in-person for our annual Heart Summit, which delivers an amazing, healing-workshop extravaganza for the heart, mind and soul. Additionally, we have a strong Academy Graduate Community consisting of graduates from our professional training programs. Our Academy Graduates are part of a grassroots movement to create localized Heart IQ™ Communities where they live, offering Heart IQ™ Experience Days, Practice Circles and Coaching. Find community members and events near you here. Finally, the Heart IQ™ Community’s mission is to create retreat centres, housing and sustainable eco-villages to offer our community members an opportunity to be fully immersed in a heart intelligent, community-based environment.
The Heart IQ™ School is dedicated to creating: 1) A new education system for our children, 2) A professional training program for teachers, and 3) A program that helps parents to support the family’s Heart IQ™ growth at home. Children are our future leaders and their exposure to a healthy Heart Intelligent environment is essential for them to grow into connected, creative and resourceful leaders. The Heart IQ™ School vision is based upon an integrated environment. Integration takes place when the parents are actively using Heart IQ™ in their personal lives as well as their relationship. Children benefit even further when parents are intrinsically involved in their education to help ensure consistency between school life and home. Given that community also plays an important influence in a child’s upbringing, the larger Heart IQ™ Community will hold an important role in supporting the child’s development. More information about the Heart IQ™ School will be available on the Heart IQ™ News Blog.
As long as profits remain the top priority, businesses can never fully operate from a position of serving the customer’s best interest. We believe that the marketplace of today is in serious need of companies who operate with Heart. When Heart Intelligence is missing in business, the risk becomes greater that a deteriorated quality of life will result from the long-term consequences of profit-first thinking. The scope of this concern extends to the business itself, its products, the consumers it serves, and even to the health of our planet. As a result, it’s become vital for companies today to embrace new ways of doing business that operate from a place of caring more deeply about the impact they make in people’s lives. Our Heart IQ™ Business services and products help both new and established businesses to upgrade their operating systems so that their policies, services and strategies are better aligned with a heart-centered ethos that produces a higher overall level of integrity. More information can be found on the Heart IQ™ News Blog.
The Heart IQ™ Foundation is our non-profit outreach. Its mission is to support individuals who are struggling financially through a scholarship fund. Future funding efforts will focus on bringing Heart IQ™ to communities that would never, under normal circumstances, be able to learn and engage in the Heart IQ™ vision and mission. More information about the work of the Foundation will be available on the Heart IQ™ News Blog.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can Heart IQ™ be taught by reading a book or watching a video?
Although a great deal of inspiration and insight can be garnered through reading a book or watching a video, Heart IQ™ can never be taught successfully through these mediums alone. The reason why is that Heart IQ™ requires physicalization and embodiment which necessitates real ‘live’ contact with other people. To physicalize and embody something means to take it beyond a concept and give it expression so it can be felt and known as an experience in the body - similar to how dancing brings music to life in the body. Additionally, a large part of the Heart IQ™ Method is about developing your ability to ‘read’ the emotional-energetic states in others, which can only be understood by learning how to feel others in real time. Finally, one of the most critical ingredients to the Heart IQ™ Method is the power of being witnessed. As you claim a new emotional-energetic range for yourself, the experience of having others see, feel and respond to your change as it’s happening is not only nourishing but essential to your healing. In the same way that others were part of your wounding process, it’s now vital that others are present in your healing.
Sooner or later, if you wish to take your Heart IQ™ journey beyond the level of intellectual interest, you’ll need to participate in one of our live events.
If you’re starting out, we recommend the Heart IQ™ Mastery Training Program (available as an online course you can take from wherever you live in the world) or the Heart IQ™ Experience Day (available in select countries around the world).
Why isn’t Heart IQ™ offered as a free service?
That’s a good question and one that is consistently discussed within our community and company.
Heart IQ™ is a practice that requires an investment of time and expertise by our team and certified facilitators. It’s essential that these individuals receive an exchange of value for the resources they contribute, which gives us the ability to deliver quality programs and professional trainings that ensure your success.
The challenge we face is that Heart IQ™ is not available to everyone, at least for the time being. Our aim over time is to subsidize the public accessibility of Heart IQ™ with income generated by our corporate clients who wish to embed Heart IQ™ into their company culture.
This transition may take years, so in the meantime, we are committed to keeping our prices as affordable as possible while maintaining the quality of excellence we’re known for, as we also continue working toward the support of a scholarship fund.
Is the Heart IQ™ Method religiously-based?
No, the Heart IQ™ Method is not based on any religious belief system.
The work of Heart IQ™ was formed by studying the natural laws that govern how human beings interact in groups. These ‘relational laws of energetic group dynamics’ can be consistently seen and felt by anyone who experiences a Heart IQ™ Amplified Field. You don’t need to believe in any dogma to be part of this work. Nothing is taught in Heart IQ™ that cannot be directly experienced in the present moment if you are shown how to feel yourself and others in a new way. You’re not required to believe that something is true without it being evident to you through your own direct experience.
That said, as participants explore and expand their range of emotional-energetic expression in themselves and with each other, a clear state of spiritual connection emerges. Spirituality differs from religion in that the essence of spirituality is emergent and represents an internal process that is unique for every individual. Religion, on the other hand, is a set of external beliefs or doctrine that is organized in a structured way for an individual to believe in and conform to. The process of becoming more spiritual is a very personal practice. No part of the Heart IQ™ Method seeks to define what spirituality means or how it should look for anyone.
Heart IQ™ does not replace the value of a religious practice. In fact, both are completely compatible. Individuals of any faith can participate in Heart IQ™ and expect that their lives and existing support practices will be enriched.
Is Heart IQ™ a cult?
No, Heart IQ™ is not a cult. I’d like to respond to this question based on how a cult is defined. As stated previously, Heart IQ™ does not operate as a system of religious beliefs. There is no dogmatic brainwashing that followers must believe. To the contrary, individuality and diversity are highly valued in our community.
The Heart IQ™ Network does have a hierarchy of leadership in order to organize and deliver its resources and exceptional services. However, it is also ‘checked’ by a Review Council consisting of individuals who have been invited from the community to act as a ‘circle of elders.’ Their job is to oversee that the decisions being made in our organization are in the highest interest of our community members and customers.
Every month, the leadership team and Review Council appear on an interactive, online community call, where any member of the community can address concerns and connect as peers. Also, we train our practitioners to listen and follow their own heart, and to think and feel for themselves beyond the noise of external influence or conditioning.
Community is an essential part of the human experience, and yet for those who may have felt controlled or suppressed in childhood or those who have adopted a strongly independent mindset, it can be seen through a suspicious lens. To see a group of apparent strangers feeling connected and expressing a higher-than-normal level of joy can seem strange when looking at it from the outside. In Heart IQ™, our clients often become enthusiastic community members who are dedicated to experiencing and spreading this work, yet their deep devotion is fueled from the gratitude they feel for the heart-opening transformation that this work delivers.
