Conversations and meditations to nourish the paradise of your heart
Over ten years ago I was searching. I was doing everything right, but something was so "not right." I was doing everything I had done before, but seeming to not be going anywhere. I was in my mid-forties. A stroke twenty years earlier and a resulting diagnosis of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy with migraine headaches were a weight I carried through my young adult years. So many years of prayer and meditation and study and ministry, beautiful relationships, a supportive community....
But now something was shifting. I looked everywhere for something that could help me through the intensity of these middle years, but I couldn't find anything different than what I already had. I wanted something within the Catholic spiritual tradition and couldn't find it.
So I set out tentatively to find my way to Jesus in this new heart-space of mine. What I learned I then shared with others. As I and the wonderful women and men I walked with found our way to the paradise of our hearts, HeartWork was born.
A blend of spiritual guidance, mentorship, and counselling, the HeartWork community is a place where you learn to explore, love, open and nourish your heart, your deep heart where God is dwelling within you. I love the quote:
The DAWN FROM ON HIGH
shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into
the way of peace.
These podcasts flow from the HeartWork experience. Thank you for journeying with me to the paradise of the heart.
