Heart Awakening
"It is this burning of the Heart I want.
This burning, which is everything,
more precious than a worldly empire..."
~ Rumi

Heart Awakening is an invitation to journey together towards more meaningful and happy life, lead by the intuition that Love is our essential nature.

The ancient spiritual traditions have confirmed that there is a field beyond worries, beyond mind, beyond struggle - and this field is always there, present and accessible for all, and we call it the Heart.

Blending the ancient knowledge of yoga with the direct experience of meditation, silence and sacred cacao ceremonies, we can explore the many dimensions of our being, and allow this journey starting and ending in the Heart to bring purification, healing and harmony into our life.

Both Heart and Awakening are open concepts, both adjectives and nouns, that can be swapped around and will still keep the essential message. They suggest that the Heart is the tool and path for awakening, as well as that there is no spiritual awakening that bypasses the Heart, the seat of the Self.

The "Heart" here is not seen as the physical organ part of our anatomy, neither it is the centre of feelings and emotivity. Rather, it is the very seat of awareness, the very core and centre of our being. The Heart is where consciousness radiates from and the Home we can spend a lifetime searching for. Being in the Heart is being in intimacy with what is, thus it is also synonymous with the Now, the Present Moment.

And "Awakening" is the destination of every spiritual exploration. In the same time it is the journey itself, the continuous (-ing) form of discovering, finding ourselves on every step.

Heart Awakening aims to reveal our true potential to love and bring sacredness and simplicity to all aspects of life. It is a teaching platform, fully dedicated to the highest benefits of all who participate in the retreats and the events.
