one hour session offers an opportunity to learn about and experience a spiritual
practice of connecting and listening to your spiritual heart. Through short,
gentle, guided meditations, one can access the spiritual heart, feeling
stillness and peace. This is a simple and easy way to connect with the Divine
within and to attend to one’s inner wisdom and guidance. It is open to all
seekers of any religious tradition who may want to develop or deepen a spiritual
or meditation practice and is congruent with the current scientific research on
the heart. This heart meditation nurtures qualities of the heart, such as love,
peace, gratitude, authenticity and compassion.
this session, we will practice this meditation in a few different ways and then
follow each practice with sharing that is respectful and gentle. Participants
can then choose whether to incorporate this practice in their lives and/or form
a practice group.”
Our program leader will be Patience Robbins, a seasoned Spiritual
Director and Associate Staff person at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual
Formation in Washington, DC http://www.shalem.org/
