Wellness + Soulfulness = Heartfulness

Online event

Watch Live on FB https://www.facebook.com/HeartfulnessPearl/ Today, the fabric of mankind is torn by numerous forces which could be religious, social, ideological or any other. Where so many concepts divide humanity into sections and build walls between them, it is spirituality that unites the races. Heartfulness weaves the fabric of a torn mankind of 7 billion people. The seed of all problems of society lie in wellness and individual health: physical, mental and spiritual. If each individual is healthy and peaceful, it would automatically trigger harmony in society, protection of the environment, integrity in principles, etc. Each of us are gods in seed form and have infinite latent potential to grow, but there is a need to nurture oneself, by turning inwards towards soulfulness and wellness. Harmonizing ourselves with nature is a huge part of wellness. Let us explore how Heartfulness integrates wellness and soulfulness and allows us to move into a space of feelings, thereby allowing peace to hold and flourish.

Featured Webinar: Inner Transformation and Service

Online Seminar

One of our previous online webinars, no longer live. This webinar lasts about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Tune in any day or any time despite what the limitations of Meetup's scheduling allows: Watch at Heartfulness Webinars: https://heartfulness.org/webinar/glow-webinar-archive/compassion-on-the-spiritual-way/ In this webinar, Helle will share how compassion is inherent in Heartfulness, and how we as heartfulness practitioners can benefit from using it more explicit on the spiritual path. Compassion can be very supportive in calming down our mind and our emotional reactivity, and in moving toward self-acceptance. Even though meditation helps us soothing the mind, we can still become reactive or caught up in emotions. Our human mind seems to challenge us constantly with our everyday thoughts, wishes, likes, and dislikes. One key to quieting the mind is to cultivate a warmer relationship with ourselves as well as our thoughts and habitual reactivity. Opening the heart to our emotional reactivity, lets our heart melt again and again in the face of experienced suffering. Turning toward an acceptance of our inner experience, rather than trying to change it, can bring about a deep and profound change. Compassion is an emotional attitude wishing to alleviate suffering in all beings, including the suffering in ourselves. https://nordic-compassion.dk/compassion-training/ Speaker : Helle Laursen, Helle specializes in compassion based approaches to enhance emotional resilience, in groups, individuals, as well as in organizations.Her primary focus of expertise is caregivers, private as well as professionals. She offers both online and live workshops, through her own company as well as for the online programs offered by Center for MSC in USA. She has been a student and a practitioner of Heartfulness meditation for 20 years and is a valued facilitator of Heartfulness workshops, as well as a Heartfulness meditation trainer. Overview and Takeaway: Learn what Self-Compassion is, and is not Why practicing Self-Compassion is a path to letting your heart melt again and again How self-acceptance enhances flexibility and humility How the explicit intention of compassion can support us in calming down the mind and lessening egoic reactivity How compassion is inherent in our Heartfulness practice, and what it is to practice compassion explicitly An experiential session of Heartfulness Relaxation and meditation Who Should Attend Open for all.
