2019-02-13 Metta – The Heart’s Release 1:11:23
  Marcia Rose
Exploring the release of the contractions of the heart…the past pains, the hurts, the anguish that we’ve taken in and taken on, as ‘mine’, as ‘me’, as ‘“I am”. This is what binds the mind & heart. Our commitment to our practice, our willingness to take the journey, is what affords the transformation. There’s a tremendous fullness of energy which is constituted by confidence, strength & clear straightforwardness that comes from a heart filled with Metta.
