An Introduction to Heart Intention – For EveryDay and Apocalypse: 
Four Meditative Anchors for Activity [New Online Resource]

An online introduction to Heart Intention, especially for the spiritual-more-than-religious seeker

Heart Intention is an engaged, active and embodied meditation practice, especially suited for our complex, technological and interpersonal world. Heart Intention uses heartful attention for activity – mindfulness with devotion. Heart Intention also introduces other ways of grounding yourself during ordinary life, which – when practiced as a path – serve as a foundation for meeting challenging times as well. Learn how to anchor yourself in your body, mind, heart and your being, amidst activity, during sitting practice, and in preparation for potential crises.

Video and audio guided meditations, along with written guidance, will be used to facilitate the living experience of Heart Intention.


An Introduction to Heart Intention & the Jesus Prayer [New Online Resource]

An online introduction to Heart Intention, using the Jesus Prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us, Son of the Living God, Amen

Heart Intention’s primary inspiration in the Christian Contemplative tradition is the Jesus Prayer of the Heart. This online resource shares that practice, especially as it opens us to the life of unity and unity consciousness. The nature of God, the Trinity and pure awareness, mind, heart and being will be explored as relating to contemplative prayer, and opened to us in Heart Intention practice with the Jesus Prayer. Video and audio guided meditations, along with written guidance, will be used to facilitate the living experience of Heart Intention.
