The Heart to Table™ Story

Founded by Leyla Salvadé, Heart To Table™ is the official event of Standing Light.

Heart To Table is a transformational dining experience that shifts you from your head into your heart through sacred tools like meditation, connection exercises, mindfulness practices, and a hint of magic!
A live interactive experience of the heart.


Leyla was born in Switzerland, raised with a melange of six different languages and cultures under one roof, and has lived in Lucerne, Phoenix, London, Los Angeles, and New York City.

Leyla is a certified Health Coach, a certified HeartMath Trainer, and spent time learning and practicing mindfulness and meditation at a Zen Buddhist Monastery in France led by Thich Nhat Hanh. She left a career in fashion to pursue her true passion of service. It is at Heart To Table™ where Leyla mixes the ingredients of her life into one experience, guiding individuals into a heart-centered adventure - together.

The first official Heart To Table™ dinner experience was held in Los Angeles at Gracias Madre with guest of honor Ryland Engelhart of Cafe Gratitude.  Since then, over a dozen H2T dinners have been held across the globe. 

People from all walks of life come together to awaken courageous grace through the intelligence of their heart.

Come and bring your heart to the table!
Your heart is waiting for you.
