Hi there! Welcome to the blog of Heartland Intimacy Design and Training (affectionately called The Pulse). My name is Dr. Kate Busselle (she/her/hers) and I am the founder. I have been practicing intimacy staging, researching best practices in intimacy, and developing pedagogy for staging intimacy over the last 6 years, and I am excited to share what I have learned with you.

What makes Heartland different? Heartland will be the first intimacy training program to be offered entirely online. Make no mistake--this is no boring HR module that you can click through and get 70% of the answers right to pass. This is innovative pedagogy that dives into why intimacy requires careful staging, how to stage it, and provide researched context as to why we need to take care in staging these moments.

In the next few months, several different modules will become available to the public to take. Some courses are catered to directors wanting to improve their own practice. Some are for burgeoning intimacy specialists wanting to get the tools to develop their craft. Some are for educators looking for ways to strengthen their pedagogy. If you do not see a course that is the right fit for you, reach out and I will do my best to meet your needs.

The first module will become available on September 30, 2019. If you want to be in the know as soon as the course drops, subscribe to Heartland and get the latest info right in your inbox.

For now, follow Heartland on your facebook, twitter, and instagram feeds to keep up to date with latest news. I look forward to working with you in making the entire industry safer!
