What is Heartwork?
Heartwork is a simple, direct, powerful, yet gentle tool for opening fully to one's life. Both a counseling approach and a way of living, Heartwork serves to resolve problems at their core, and to open the "heart of compassion."
In the heart of every problem lies its solution. We spend enormous amounts of time and energy searching for answers outside ourselves, when the answers lie within.
Heartwork is a creative process, which teaches one to find fundamental solutions to both everyday problems and the more difficult life questions, transforming problems into doorways to compassion, insight and joy.
There are in this world illnesses that seek healings in just the same way as aspirants seek liberation - the right catalyst is crucial. Dale Goldstein is just such a catalyst for healing.

Dale Goldstein is a Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Psychotherapist who has been actively exploring, since 1966, the uses of meditative, healing, and psychotherapeutic tools in the process of healing individuals, groups, and organizations.
Dale attended the University of Michigan and Wayne State University, where he received a B.S. in Secondary Education in 1967, and a Master of Social Work degree in 1969. In 1971, feeling a lack of depth in his life, Dale moved to Rochester, NY to practice Zen under the guidance of Roshi Philip Kapleau. In 1980, he changed to a self-inquiry/ awareness meditative practice with Toni Packer, with whom he worked for eight more years. Since then, Dale has worked with various teachers and is currently working with Alia Johnson, a senior teacher in the Diamond Approach.
In 1977, Dale co-founded and directed the Rochester Center for the Healing Arts, a wholistic health education and multi-disciplinary treatment center. During this time, Dale also trained in Polarity Therapy, a healing art, with Dr. Pierre Pannetier, and practiced and taught Polarity Therapy throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
In 1981, Dale coalesced over fifteen years of study, work, and personal practice into "Heartwork," a gentle, deeply penetrating process that supports the growth and healing of the body/mind/spirit of individuals and organizations. Since that time, Dale has been the director of The Heartwork Institute, home to his private counseling practice and a variety of seminars and workshops that he facilitates nationally.
Dale also volunteers time with cancer and hospice organizations as a primary caregiver and group facilitator and has written a monthly column entitled "Transformational Journeys" for The World Times, the international "good news newspaper."
Since 1994, Dale has been helping businesses and not-for-profit organizations develop the tools and practice of self-awareness to help individuals and organizations connect their unique life experiences to create and sustain a successful, humane work environment. Dale believes firmly that individuals and groups can connect their most profound experiences and knowledge to their day-to-day work. He opens himself and others to that possibility by looking deeply into his own heart as he invites other to do the same. Dale's past and present clients include Kodak, County of Arlington Virginia, New Horizons Computer Learning Center, Cancer Action, and Lifetime Health.
A seeker of Truth, Dale's work has been most deeply influenced by the meditative, psychotherapeutic, and personal growth work he has done, his life partners -- who have insisted he be a whole person, his two children, Lifespring, and his men's group.
