Are you interested in tapping into an inherent sense of wholeness and a field of undivided loving awareness in the core of your being? Would you like to open your heart more fully and be more intimate with yourself and others? Would you like to experience more spontaneous gratitude? Are you interested in attuning with the subtle energy body? Would you like to allow the wounds of your conditioned human heart to be held and healed by the Great Heart shared by all beings?

If so, join us for this unique dive into an exploration of the Deep Heart.

You will experience how to unhook from your thoughts and allow attention to drop into the heart area. Discover the multidimensional nature of the heart, ranging from psychological levels of conditioning where we feel lacking, flawed, and separate, to the soul level of profound personal intimacy, to the nondual, non-localized Heart of Awareness. You will learn simple, powerful forms of individual meditation, partnered heart-felt meditative inquiry, and subtle body sensing.

This will be a safe, loving, honest, and intimate meditative environment where you will experience guided and silent meditation, partnered meditative inquiry, subtle-body sensing and movement, talks, and dialogues.

– To more fully open your heart to yourself, others, and life
– To recognize, question, and see through core limiting beliefs and the related emotional reactions that veil the heart
– To experience greater self-acceptance and love
– To experience how a clear mind and awakened hara (belly) and body support a sustained openness of the heart
– To discover how the Great Heart holds and heals the conditioned human heart
– To more clearly recognize the field of open, wakeful, loving awareness as your essential nature
