Heartstyles &
Play of Life

The Play of Life and Heartstyles have a rich history. The founders of these two tools, Dr. Carlos A Raimundo of the Play of Life and Stephen and Mara Klemich of Heartstyles, are friends since the 90s in Sydney. They connected through a shared common objective: assisting people through heart-centered approaches, neuroscience, and transformative tools. The Play of Life provides training and digital applications for Heartstyles AA, enabling them to expand their professional toolkit and effectively incorporate the Play of Life method into their practice. This can be done alongside Heartstyles and/or any other methods/tools they currently employ, such as CBT, NLP, EMDR, and others.

We have been using The Play of Life for over 20 years to help participants get a breakthrough on their personal, team and leadership journey. Heartstyles helps reveal defensive and constructive behaviours and because of the sensitivity in dealing with these results, we like to guide people to a revelation of learning. Using The Play of Life at these sensitive points allows the participants to discover for themselves things they could not “see” before, and then gives them insights to action plan for greater effectiveness, personally and professionally.

Play of Life is a method that enables great insight and awareness for people by bypassing the rational part of their brain to access and process limbic templates and memories that have shaped their lives. It is therefore so beneficial and congruent to Heartstyles coaching. It creates opportunities for a deepened understanding of the origins of our thinking and behaviour and allows new narratives to emerge that can be life-changing. The wealth and depth of research that underpins Play of Life and that is shared on the course, is incredibly thought provoking and enriching. It challenges me to keep learning and growing.
