Wise Heart Practices

Wise Heart Practices are ways of cultivating generous wisdom and spacious heartfulness.

The Offering is to practice this in relationship with one’s own dear self, with others, and within community. This involves all kinds of other practices like loving & being loved, curiosity, forgiveness, patience, healing, interconnectedness, joy, sympathetic joy, empathy, playfulness, growth, and compassion, to name a few. 

Cultivating generous wisdom and spacious heartfulness insists that we each live our own dear heart’s deepest desire.  And this requires that we seed and tend supportive and nurturing skills like embodiment, adaptability, suppleness, responsiveness, continued welcoming, reverence, tender accountability, honoring, boundary-creation, and boundarylessness.  

The Invitation is to relate to love as a verb filled with simplicity, nuance, regard, and reverence. It is active even when the actions are invisible, like pausing, sustaining silence, and exploring stillness, or creating, holding, embracing, receiving, and enjoying spaciousness.

The exploration of Yoga and other contemplative wisdom traditions, philosophies, and practices provide some of the tools and inspiration that support and sustain this way of being.    The investigation of neuroscience, polyvagal theory, systems theory, applied neurology, and resiliency are areas of study invaluable to opening our eyes to spacious ways of seeing ourselves and others. This way of extending dignity and offering kind regard make possible our shared healing, growth, and freedom.  

Loving and being loved is both active and restful. The doing is filled with being. The actions are filled with ease. And then, of a sudden, you are Love Itself. (As you always were, and always will be.)
