Heart Centered Meditation
Golden, Lakewood, and Denver, Colorado

Many health issues in our American culture have their roots in a weakened human spirit.  We tend to feel lonely or that somehow we don't feel nourished or supported according to our deep needs.  We aren’t always aware of it in these terms, nor do we know how to change it.  Over time, physical, mental, and emotional problems may result. 

One way we may access our own spirit is by connecting to our heart.  Recognizing and honoring our heart’s desires (different from what our mind, or personality may desire, and different from what our feelings, or emotions may desire) is essential to healthy living. Most major world religions acknowledge the heart as the home of the human spirit within our body. Chinese Medicine also recognizes the heart as our center for wisdom, intuition, and the organ of happiness in our body. Heart Centered Meditation is a simple practice of moving from the intellect to the wisdom of the heart. By opening to our heart, the energy of our essential nature is activated. Transformational healing on all levels may ensue by this practice.  

There are hundreds of meditation methods, so finding the right one that suits you is the most important thing. I practice and teach Heart Centered Meditation which is a method that people of any religion may practice. Learning how to connect with our own heart, our own spiritual energy that we are born with, is considered a fundamental skill. In this way, this meditation practice is a universal practice, primary to personal develpoment. As we cultivate our heart connection, our personal religious beliefs may guide our spiritual development. A person can learn how to meditate by being assisted to ackowlege subtle but significant energetic shifts in the body, and thoughts, and emotions. With practice, the energy begins to flow and we are able to face ourselves from our heart connection, experiencing emotional and physical easing. I have been practicing this form of meditation since 1994 with Mary White.

Of course, there are many scientifically proven health benefits from meditation practice.  Among the top ones are relaxation, reduced stress, lower blood pressure, better ability to concentrate, and improved sleep.  Whether our motivation for meditation is purely physical benefits or deeper spiritual cultivation, heart-centered meditation is a simple, time-proven method.
