About the event

“Bright but hidden, the Self dwells in the heart.Everything that moves, breathes, opens, and closes lives in the Self-the source of love.Realize the Self hidden in the heart and cut asunder the knot of ignorance here and now.”—The Upanishads (Translated by Eknath Easwaran, Nilgiri Press, 1987)

Join Heather for this 1/2 Day Immersive Experience, during which Heather will:

~Introduce the symbolism of the Lotus of the Heart from the Uphanishads, the ancient Yogic texts.

~Lead us through unique practices to draw Prana (energy) into the heart and lungs by creating space and easeful movement in the chest,  shoulders and upper back as well as developing strength and support in the abdomen & lumbar spine.

~Share her intricate knowledge of the Chakras through an emphasis on the Heart Chakra (anahata);  the balance point & center of the upper and lower Chakras. 

~Guide you through meditations to access deep awareness into your heartspace, a delicate and often tender area, so that we can begin to open into our potential for healing areas of the heart that may be suffering, stuck or wounded or may need nuturing in order to open into a more loving connection with ourselves or with others. 

~Offer journaling prompts to nuture further investigation of our relationship with our hearts.

~Share "Compassion in Action" Leading small group discussions and excercises to cultivate deep inquiry into where collectively we need more loving awareness and loving kindness inside out in our relationships with other beings.

~Guide us in ceremony to honor what we cultivate together during this 1/2 day retreat, as we take action to continue cultivating heart awareness and energy into our lives and out in the world.
