The Science and Art of Opening Your Heart:
A Free Online Telesummit with Visionaries like Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Dr. John Demartini and Mary Morrissey

(Phoenix, AZ) – Writer, producer, filmmaker and visionary Ronna Prince devoted three years of her life to make Sacred Journey of the Heart, a ground-breaking film documenting the science, spirit and healing capabilities of the heart. The film sets out to prove that we are all connected to each other and the earth around us.

The success of the film prompted Prince to create The Science and Art of Opening Your Heart, a free, week-long, online telesummit featuring 20 of the world’s best heart-centered and transformational experts.

“People can claim their free seat today and receive instant access to inspirational gifts. For the first time ever they will have access to the online streaming rental of the film for a reduced rate of $6.99, rather than $9.99, after the Telesummit ends. People can register at to learn new life changing techniques”, says Prince.

The Science and Art of Opening Your Heart will feature respected authors and spiritual leaders such as New York Times bestselling author Gregg Braden, Dr. John Demartini, Colin Tipping, Nick Ortner, Mary Morrisey, Bruce Lipton, PhD and many more.

Here’s what Bob Proctor from the hit film The Secret had to say about Prince’s film: “Your film is phenomenal in creating the awareness of who we are, what we are and the relationship to the whole scheme of things. When people see it, it will provoke them to really begin to think about how interconnected we really are”.

Just as Prince’s enlightening documentary provides a wealth of tools, techniques and information on how to heal, forgive, trust and, ultimately, inspire people, The Science and Art of Opening Your Heart encourages its online audience to become more connected and attuned to heal their hearts.

The event will take place over the course of five days, from September 9-13, 2013. There will be four speakers per day at 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Pacific Time and many bonus offerings. Anyone can register for free at .

(Scottsdale, AZ) – During life’s toughest moments, we often lose direction. We can sometimes lose a piece of ourselves when we become overburdened by sadness, stress and pain. It can be difficult to get back on track. Some of us completely lose hope and give up on the idea that we can ever be truly happy.

It’s during these times that we need a personal life coach that can help us get unstuck and break loose from old patterns of thinking and behavior that sabotage us. Loree Bischoff, personal coach and author of the newly released book titled Common Sense Happiness – Five Principals for People Who Want to Stop Whining, Bitching and Suffering gives readers her candid guidance. Bischoff quickly gets her clients on their feet and looking at the world through a new perspective. Bischoff creates an inoffensive and seemingly easy and direct approach to loving life and learning to be happy.

“Life is both too long and too short to be anything less than what you want it to be. There is simply no good reason to spend any time being miserable, unfulfilled, mad, less than happy or stuck in a rut.”

Author Bischoff asks, “Are you unhappy even when you’re having fun? Are other people the reason you’re crabby and unhappy? Do you think you’re not educated enough or rich enough to have a happier life? Do you always feel like a supporting cast member in someone else’s life? Do you have a negative belief about yourself that was established by someone you used to think was (or still think is) smarter than you? Are you just wanting something – anything – to change? Common Sense Happiness will help you do just that.”

Friends and colleagues like Hulk Hogan who have experienced her no nonsense approach can attest to this. “When you read it, you’ll be able to make sense of what you already know, stop the old patterns of thinking and behavior that keep you stuck in misery, and change your life completely,” says Hulk Hogan.
