Awakening Heart Wisdom: Courage, Connection, Compassion

Cynthia Overweg

October 2628
Tuesday – Thursday, 10 am – 11:30 PDT

Sages and mystics throughout the world have emphasized for centuries that the highest intelligence we can encounter is the wisdom of our own heart. The great Indian mystic, Kabir Das, put it this way: “Lift the veil that obscures the heart and there you will find what you are looking for.” What are we really looking for? What is the “veil” that obscures it? How do courage, connection and compassion awaken us to an authentic relationship with our innermost being? These are some questions we’ll explore together.

Each session will include meditative inquiry, body/mind relaxation, intervals of silence, sacred music and insights from the great teachings of East and West. Join us for an exploration of the inner awareness that unites the mind with the wisdom of the heart.

Tuesday, October 26: Is it possible to live without fear? What is our relationship with courage and the spiritual search? This session includes insights from the Bhagavad Gita, the Gospel of Thomas, and Freedom from the Known.

Wednesday, October 27: In a world where everything seems to be falling apart, can we go beyond the paralysis of fear and into a deeper understanding of what it means to be fully human? Insights from The Upanishads and the Gospel of Mary Magdalene are included in this session.

Thursday, October 28: The heart is the most vital organ in the body and it also has great mystical significance in the spiritual teachings of East and West: it is considered to be the energy center of wisdom and compassion that unifies the whole of existence within us. How are we to understand this? Insights from The Voice of the Silence and The Heart Sutra are included in this session.
