Opening to the Heart of Awareness
with Dorothy Hunt
Friday, September 14
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
In identifying with busyness, problems, and anxieties about the future, we lose touch with the Heart of Awareness, imagining we are separate from our original wholeness. Spiritual teacher and psychotherapist, Dorothy Hunt, author of Ending the Search: From Spiritual Ambition to the Heart of Awareness, invites us to return to the openness of our true nature, the Heart we share. She reminds us that the silence, presence, peace, clarity, wisdom, compassion, love and freedom we long to experience belong to the truth that is already here and awake within us if we are ready to STOP and notice. Open to all!
