Day 5: Heartfulness for All Beings within Racism

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 to ourselves, a specific person, or a group of people with a meditation practice that involves repeated phrases (“May I/you/we be safe, happy, healthy, and live with ease”) and a focus on the heart space in the body. This week, we’re practicing heartfulness in the context of the wounds of racism. Check out our introduction to this topic here.

Our last practice of the week is about all of us - sending love to our collective wounds within racism. We hope this week has been healing - and yet we’re all still suffering, so let’s practice together: May all beings be free from racism.

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”). Especially given the content of this week, please do what you need to take care of yourself, and reach out if you want to talk.
