Meditation: Coming Home to Being - "What it's like to be here right now and listening to your heart… sensing the state of your heart? It might have been a while since you've really checked in with this simple inquiry… How is my heart right now?"


Basic Trust - Part 1 - One of the expressions of an awakened heart-mind is a basic trust in reality. These talks explore the severed belonging that gives rise to mistrust, and two primary pathways to realizing and trusting the indivisible field of loving awareness that is our source. (a favorite from the archives)

“To love without holding back – to really sense with the wisdom, the reality, that it’s right here – to live from wholeness. We have this capacity.”

“Who would you be if you trusted the basic goodness and beauty is living through you? How would your life be different if you trusted that spirit, love, awareness is what you are?”
