Let’s start February, the month of the heart, with a meditation on connecting with your life through your heart. I’d like this month to not be so much about Valentine’s Day as a Hallmark holiday, but more about the concept of love and the heart as a space we can always return to for quiet, solace, reflection and inquiry.

If we consider the heart as a sacred space that we can return to no matter what is happening in our lives, then we can contemplate the idea that our heart breaks so that we can let in more space. A break in your heart can let in more light and opportunity for growth. This month, I am going to share with you a few short snippets from hard times in my life when my heart was really broken.

I hope that this first meditation about the heart will start your month off and give you an opportunity to reflect on all the times that your heart has been broken to let more light fill you.
