Opening to the Wisdom of the Heart



Opening to the Wisdom of the Heart

In many cultures the word for heart is synonymous with mind, and wisdom is understood as centered in the heart. This workshop will explore the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental dimensions of the heart and introduce somatic processes that expand heart awareness. We will draw on heart teachings from Indigenous, Buddhist and Christian traditions that support the felt sense of the loving compassionate heart. The workshop will include experiential anatomy of the heart, embodied meditation, art-making and movement.
