The heart is the core, the essence of all spiritual traditions. The infinite heart is the pure source waiting for each of us. Here there is a vastness without words. It is felt as sweetness, an intimate love, gentleness, an ocean of peace or sky of light…..infinitely expanding. This is a direct experience of the spiritual heart where we are effortless being. Each person has their own unique experience. Once the silence of the heart is felt, our life changes. We have found our home inside. Retreat, spiritual practice, simple joy, our spiritual heart becomes our anchor in daily life.

From Hindu perspective:
Hindu philosophy and Advaita, considers the heart the seat or center of consciousness, a temple, and that by meditating on this center, one becomes united with the higher or divine Self, God inside. It is not the physical heart but the spiritual heart. It is the great I Am that the sages refer to. It is referred to as Samadhi Pada or Hridaya. This is the core of our being, our deepest true nature, the seat of our soul. Bhagavad Gita: Brahman (the Supreme reality, the Absolute) and Atman (Self, soul, spirit) are identical. The internal world is characterised by bliss and the cessation of mental activity. This was the work of the teacher Ramana Maharshi and his teachings of Self-enquiry and non dualism.

From Buddhist perspective:
The Kargyupa School of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy speaks about Mahamudra, the Great Seal. This is the experience of bliss and emptiness. “We are of the same luminous essence as everything in nature.” Here they are experiencing their Buddha nature, the pure mind in it’s natural state; at peace, awakened and divine. ​

From Christian perspective:

​The Christians find their Christ light within themselves. The peace of Christ, the love of Christ, become more then words as our heart center is opened and felt. Christianity shares with all the great world religions a rich path of humility, giving, and receiving God, the pure light, within. Centering prayer, holding one’s attention in the heart with focus on the highest qualities, is one form of Christian contemplative meditation.
