What we're about

"We are meant to be happy.

That has always been something we strive for in this life. In fact, if we look at the motivations behind our thoughts and action conscious and unconscious they are all to get us closer to the feeling, or at least the idea, of happiness.

Some of us have long asked why we cannot hold on to happiness. For all of the scholarship and human insights across the centuries, nobody has found a complete and enduring answer. Perhaps because it has been too close to see…

The answer, the key, is our heart."

Irmansyah Effendi, M.Sc., Founder Padmacahaya Institute

The Open Heart Meditation is a very easy-to-learn, heart-centered meditation that helps you experience the peace and joy that is already within your heart through the simple technique of relaxing, smiling and surrendering.

At the Meetup we will walk you through the basic steps (relax, smile and surrender) of heart meditation so you can become familiar with the process, then we will do the Open Heart Meditation together.

The Open Heart Meditation is a beautiful, guided meditation that connects our hearts to True Source, the Source of Love & Light (we use the non-denominational term "True Source" but you a free to use whatever word feels right for you- God, Spirit, Universe etc...). The Open Heart Meditation also helps cleanse negative energy and emotions from your heart and replace it with Love & Light in a very gentle, surrendered way.

Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful after the Open Heart Meditation. With practice, as our heart becomes stronger, we become more peaceful, joyful and able to follow our heart's own inner guidance to be happier in our daily life.

With Love & Light,
The Open Heart Community : )
