Looking to experience less stress and more peace in your day-to-day life? In many spiritual practices, the heart center is a key to diving into deeper states of consciousness. The heart-centered meditation (HCM) is different from most meditation practices (mindfulness based, Zen meditations, etc.) in that it uses four attributes–compassion, innate harmony, healing presence and unconditional love–to connect to the heart space. This meditation also uses the Karunesh Heart Chakra Meditation soundtrack to deepen the practice.
Dr. Aneela Cox will be offering a Heart-Centered Meditation series between January 19 and March 10, 2023, on Thursdays at 12:00 pm, and Fridays at 8:00 am, with the exception of holidays. This is offered exclusively to Integrative Life and Employee Health Plan members, free of charge. Registration in advance of the first session you wish to attend is required. Here is the link to register for the Thursday meditations at 12:00 pm, and here is the link to register for the Friday meditations at 8:00 am. You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link for joining.
The heart-centered meditation was given to Dr. Cox by her teacher, Dr. Ann Marie Chiasson, the fellowship director at the Andrew Weil Center of Integrative Medicine. Dr. Chiasson shared that “We must polish the heart everyday,” a process facilitated by HCM. Dr. Cox has practiced and taught various styles of meditations over the past decade and feels called to once again share HCM with the our clinic members.
