Day 1: Heartfulness for a Loved One or Benefactor

Welcome to the Awaken Heart Project! If you didn’t receive the intro email, you can read it here. Basically, read the below, do the meditation, and respond to the prompt via the comments (and if you don’t want to respond, just write “Completed”).

Heartfulness practice is about sending love and good vibes with a meditation practice that involves repeated phrases (“May I/you/we be safe, happy, healthy, and live with ease”), a focus on the heart space in the body, and, if you want, visualizations. You can do this practice in whatever posture feels comfortable - sitting, standing, walking, lying down, or anything else.

Today, we’re going to send love to someone we’re grateful for in our lives - someone who has supported us in a deep way: a family member, friend, partner, teacher, etc. A big part of this practice is feeling how this person has nourished you, and the interconnectivity between that nourishment and your sending of warm wishes. Pick your person before hitting play!

Thanks for practicing with us! In the comments, leave 1-3 words that describe or reflect upon your experience of this practice (or just write “Completed” if you don’t want to so we know you did it, just so we can keep track :).
