And Still, We Rise
And Still, We Rise
It seems like, now, more than ever, it’s easy to carry the weight of a heavy heart with us wherever we go. Constant access to the relentless 24-hour news cycle, rife with reports of man-made and natural cataclysms, takes a toll on our psyche. Politics, a difficult and divisive topic, have been ever-present in our world for the last few years. And it seems like every day, there’s a new story of heartbreak broadcast to our screens. “At this time on the planet, it’s never been more important to tune into a largely untapped resource—the heart—as a means for meaningful collaboration, communication and innovation,” says Jessie May Wolfe, founder of the Heartrise Movement.
The Heartrise Movement empowers people to communicate fully, with their hearts. Workshops are a mix of a warm intro on the science and power of the human heart, a guided active meditation journey to empower connection, sharing in circle, and community bonding.
Wolfe knows firsthand how important real communication is—her past life as a heavy-hitting professional informed her choice to create Heartrise: “It’s been my life’s dedicated journey to understand and deliver the power of our human heart to connect us to ourselves and each other, ultimately empowering us to lead our most fulfilling life. It came to be through my extensive experience traveling the world, consulting in creative worlds, from fashion, design, marketing and publishing to coaching and consulting in the business world, to the various healing modalities I’m trained in.”
In times that can feel so partisan, so separate, so singular, it cannot be overstated how valuable true connection is. “Amidst the chaotic culture of swiping and scrolling; meaningful communication has never been more important,” says Wolfe.

how did the Heartrise Movement come to be?
It’s been my life’s dedicated journey to understand and deliver the power of our human heart to connect us to ourselves and each other, ultimately empowering us to lead our most fulfilling life.
From the world of recovery, to innovation and business development, to education and beyond, I’ve had the honor of working with many hearts and souls across the world—and my vision and mission evolved naturally into the HeartRise Method (based on modern science and ancient wisdom) + Movement, the method ignites, and the movement spreads through communities from the corporate to the creative world through the powerful energy that is born when one awakened heart joins with another.
Why is the Heartrise Movement so important right now, considering our social and political state of the union?
The heart has been largely forgotten in the world of healing, wellness and human potential ~ and is at the very center of our humanity. Our heart’s electromagnetic field generates enough power to light up a small city, and most people are shut down and contracted in their heart. One heart ignited can ignite others to experience their heart power. Our radiance is contagious, yet we’ve not been taught how to harness and lead with this power. When hearts are ignited, and aligned, we empower our potential to create and impact change.
