One of the reasons Head + Heart exists is, quite simply, community. This platform came to life to bring people together, in meaningful ways. While we’ve called Head + Heart “A Mindful Calendar” in our hearts it’s more than a place to discover events, retreats, workshops – live and virtual. It’s also a place to build meaningful connections with teachers, and each other. We need each other on this journey, especially when we’re going through stuff. Like a pandemic.

Each week we’re sharing virtual events and gatherings to support, ground and maybe even inspire you during this time. Here are a few offerings we highly recommend:

Meditation with Caverly Morgan

This weekly meditation group led by Portland-based Caverly Morgan focuses on integrating meditation and mindful practice into our everyday lives, deepening our direct experience of Awareness, and embodying realization. Caverly combines meditation with a facilitated group discussion that is interactive and personal. Learn to see how suffering is created in your life and gain the tools to open, transform, and explore your direct experience of truth.

This weekly group- usually live- is now virtual, so this is a great chance to explore Caverly’s work. All welcome.

Sound Journey with Shanila Sattar

Vibrations of sound are healing in many ways, helping us relax, and connect into our deeper knowing. This experiential meditation is a soothing and rejuvenating treat for the senses. Float into relaxation as your body gets bathed in vibrational currents of ancient sound healing instruments. Crystal bowls are used to shift and cleanse your energy fields so you can go back to your day feeling renewed.

Ana Lilia’s Community Breathwork Circle

We joined Ana Lilia’s breathwork group last week and LOVED it so much we’re putting it on the list again this week for anyone who may have missed it. Highly recommend. The group begins with a check in, and then moves into breathwork, an active form of meditation to help you release the stress you’re feeling. Ana gives a lesson in how to do active breathing, and offers a beautiful guided meditation to lead you into the practice.

Date || Saturdays at 10:00am PST

Chackra Clearing + Meditation

An intimate opportunity to journey together through a chakra meditation and energetic release. Led by Liberate Your True Self’s Amelie St-Pierre, this meditation will focus on a particular Chakra. Each person receives an individual clearing of emotions restricting this Chakra.⁠ If you’re new to chakra clearing, Chakras are the centres in our bodies where information flows through. If the energy flow in the Chakra is blocked, it can result in illness, or lack of focus, vitality, and joy. The health level of the Chakras has a direct impact on a person’s health, emotions, mind and life experience. ⁠

Date || Various Dates.
