Class Review | Awakening The Global Heart
Awakening the Global Heart, the second class of the Wanderlust Festival at The North Face Space was a powerful, heart opening experience. The video below shows a part of the class that was truly inspiring. During this segment, we practiced opening our hearts to the divine and to those around us. We dug deep into ourselves to discover new ways to become more open and connected with others.
Here are the a few highlights of the heart opening exercises we practiced.
A particularly beautiful part of the class was the chant at the end. As a special way to honor the final person that we were paired with, we sat down back-to-back and chanted "Om Mani Padme Hum" (video below), a powerful mantra that is often interpreted as "jewel in the lotus". This mantra has many interpretations but includes six syllables that symbolize generosity, ethics, patience, diligence, renunciation and wisdom. Thanks so much to the wonderful instructors who guided us through this journey!
