60 Mindful Minutes

Dec 14, 2022

What does it mean to be in touch with the heart of who we are? That question is at the core of The Heart of Who We Are. Written by Caverly Morgan, a meditation teacher, author, speaker, and nonprofit founder, the book offers a pathway to contemplate such topics as our interconnectedness, our beingness, and the things that get in the way of us feeling whole and complete. This week we look at how awareness practices and contemplative technologies can transform our understanding of ourselves and the world.
