The Heart Meditation comes from the Buddhist Master Atisha and is based on the same principles as the Buddhist practice of Tonglen.
It helps us stay fully present with feelings and contractions without having to carry them around; without grasping or resisting what is happening. It cultivates compassion and the capacity to allow feelings to flow through without them getting stuck.
You can practice this meditation alone with eyes closed and also throughout your day as you interact with others. It is a practical tool to support you to stay present and open with life as it comes.
