Opening the Heart, Freeing the Mind
with Mark Coleman
July 14, 2017
Spirit Rock, Woodacre, CA

Mindful awareness and love are beautiful qualities of an awakened life. Awareness leads to clarity, insight and freedom. A loving heart responds with care to our own struggles and to the pain in the world. It allows a kind embrace of ourselves and connects us intimately with life. In this creative day of practice, we will cultivate heartful qualities and learn how to free ourselves from the restless, reactive mind so we can live with greater kindness and peace.
