Return to Wholeness: Opening to Wisdom & Love

We will cultivate our capacity to abide in wisdom and love through the integration of the mind, body, and heart. It is the integration of wisdom and love that can take us to freedom in this very life, here and now. The practices of the heart and the wisdom born from understanding can create the conditions for an integrated awareness. By engaging the heartmind through reflection and the practices of lovingkindness, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity, we can open and move towards wholeness as we walk this spiritual journey called life.
