We help you Harness your Heart’s Intelligence

About the Heart Leadership Institute “Tapuat”


Tapuat’s Heart Leadership Institute embraces a transformative approach to leadership. It promotes a harmonious workplace through seven core principles: presence, inner peace, dharma, inner joy, non-attachment, selflessness, and unity. These principles are aimed at driving organizational success by fostering personal growth and self-awareness. At its core, Tapuat’s mission is to reshape leadership with heart.


The Heart Leadership Institute comprises the Heart Leadership School, offering certification programs for Guides, organizations, and individuals aspiring to embody and disseminate heart-based leadership principles. This educational arm equips participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to create environments rich in empathy, authenticity, and collaboration, profoundly influencing both their personal and professional spheres. The school’s comprehensive curriculum is designed to develop a new generation of leaders capable of driving positive change and well-being across diverse settings.

Tapuat originates in the Hopi wisdom. In the Hopi language, Tapuat originally symbolizes “life cycles”, that eternal rebirth or reinvention that life offers us, which begins with the umbilical cord along with the path of moving towards oneself, our essence or spirit. Represented as a maze lined in 7, the labyrinth refers to 7 centers of energy (chakra), 7 musical notes, and 7 colors of the rainbow, it looks very much like a fingerprint as well, the symbol of our uniqueness.

Heart Leadership Foundations

Your journey towards Heart Leadership is anchored on the Seven Pillars of Heart Leadership, a forward looking approach shaping today’s leadership landscape. These principles are the foundation for creating harmonious and effective work environments. Embrace these pillars to foster personal growth, self-awareness, and a profound impact in your professional journey.


Being in a state where one is fully present, observant, and non-judgmental of their thoughts, feelings, and actions in each moment.

Inner Peace

Maintaining a state of tranquility and harmony within oneself, regardless of external circumstances.

Dharma "Living Purpose"

Living in alignment with one’s unique purpose, moral duty, or path in life, fostering a sense of fulfillment and direction.

Inner Joy

Being in a state where joy is found not in the absence of suffering, but in compassionate engagement with the world’s challenges.


Recognizing and living with the awareness of the inherent unity of all beings and the universe, fostering humility, empathy, and a compassionate worldview.


Cultivating a state of egolessness where we let go of any identification to past stories and the needs and well-being of others are prioritized, recognizing the shared humanity in everyone.


Achieving a state where one embraces the impermanent nature of life, refraining from clinging to people, outcomes, or possessions, allowing for better flow with life’s natural rhythms.
