'Fall In Love With Your Heart' was the title of my very first Heartbeat workshop I was honored to facilitate. And here, in the beautiful Columbia Gorge, surrounded by rivers, waterfalls, mountains, trees, colorful autumn leaves and together with other 44 amazing hearts I adventured in a three days journey through the 5Rhythms map of the emotions.
"In the empty space between the beats of our hearts rest the essence of our deepest emotional being. A heart that surrenders to its feet fills a body that moves in its essential rhythmic beat." Jonathan Horan
And I, we, explored that empty space.
We walked. We danced. We screamed. We cried. We laughed. We stepped in with our humbleness and vulnerability, showing ourselves openly and witnessing the others, with gratitude and full attention in a safe and welcoming space. Together. In sacred unity. Guided and supported by commune intents, reciprocal trust, deep respect and care for each and everyone's courageous heart that embarked in this journey.
So I also did (again and again) fall in love with my heart.
I did have the opportunity to offer my own vulnerability, my imperfection, my full presence and my learning. And to navigate through this map trusting my feet, my breath and the rhythm of my heart.
How can one not fall in love with his/hers/their hearts? And be fascinated by it? And desiring to take good care of it? And be inspired. And feel. Feel. Feel. Feel. Everything.
And that. Of course. It's just the first step in our conscious life's journey. Moving towards Love for another. Towards Love for All. Toward Spirit.
Grateful for you all. Stepping forward. With more Love in my Heart. Ready to share it all. Again and again.
"Dance to fall in love with the spirit in all things." Gabrielle Roth
