“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and the pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
~Frederick Buechner

In times of grief and loss, you may find yourself grappling with deeply personal and existential questions about the nature of the universe. Your emotional and spiritual journey may be characterized by a heightened awareness of your surroundings, as well as an increased sensitivity to magical coincidences in everyday life. We’ll explore how your unexpected synchronicities and serendipitous events are signs from the universe, letting you know you’re on the right path.

Life is sacred. And grief teaches you that we live in a creative world with divine intelligence. You are connected to a larger intelligence, which goes beyond the human mind. In the Sacred Flow, you’ll discover how even during turbulent times, you are never truly alone. You’ll learn how the divine is woven into all you do; in ways you may not have imagined. We’ll explore times that you received grace, a freely given gift that supported you and restored your sense of well-being.

The Sacred Flow is a great opportunity to begin what Celtic Spirituality calls a peregrination, a pilgrimage of sorts, some radically fresh way not known before. You’ll build a sustainable, spiritual practice. You’ll learn about “thin places,” where the line between this material world and the sacred is so thin, it is almost indistinguishable. And you’ll engage in simple rituals, like going for a walk at sunrise to greet a brand new day.

In the Sacred Flow, we’ll explore how cultivating an attitude of gratefulness, even in times of sorrow and hardship, can be a profoundly life-affirming experience. With this mindset there is no requirement to change your circumstances or desires; instead, you’ll find yourself changing how you approach each situation and transform the way you view your world altogether.

“All shall be well and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.”
~ Saint Julian of Norwich

In this Flow, you’ll learn about the deeply personal nature of the divine. We’ll explore some of the timeless, inspirational teachings and texts of saints and poets, including Mary Oliver, St. Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Saints Brigid and Hildegard de Bingen, and Saint Julian of Norwich. When Julian was gravely ill and in excruciating pain, during the bubonic plague, she heard these words in her mind, spoken to her by Christ: “All shall be well and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well,” Julian’s words provide a balm for our challenging times.

In the Sacred Flow, you’ll explore meditating, which is an important practice to increase your intuitive muscle. Meditation teaches you there is an observer in your mind, a witness who watches your thoughts coming up, and this creates a sense of separation.
You are not your thoughts.

Training to quiet your mind through consistent practice provides a space to notice what is below the surface and is coming up. You’ll practice sitting with what is, and not pushing it away, which teaches you to be less reactive. Mediation is also a cheap and easy way to strengthen your immune system.

Meditation and introspection lead to an awakened state of consciousness that allows you to transcend ego and habitual thought patterns. This brings a sense of freedom to realize that you are not your thoughts. Rather, you’re connected to a larger whole, to a Divine intelligence, beyond the human mind. That’s why sometimes in meditation you have a feeling of unity, or togetherness.

Connecting with this intelligence, this intuition, opens a new reality. This is how you become the creator of your own life, your own experience, and you discover that you have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom inside you.

In fact, meditation is the #1 key to successful manifestation.

Cultivate pro-social and virtuous behaviors

You’ll learn to cultivate pro-social and virtuous behaviors by repeating systematic mettas, or loving-kindness meditations. The mettas create the capacity to be open and kind to all beings, including yourself. The wholesome qualities of gratefulness, equanimity, compassion, joy, and kindness are cultivated. These qualities create a tiller to put your hand on in rough seas. You’ll also write your own, personalizing them to fit the intentions for your life. This is a proactive way of replacing looping, negative thoughts with positive, healthier ones.

Conscious breathing practices, such as box breathing

When you add your awareness to your breath, you activate prana, the rejuvenative life force within the breath itself. You literally deliver your awareness throughout the body with the breath. Mindful breathing offers a path that calms the mind, increases insight, and can lead to a place of balance and awakening. In fact, the fastest way for you to get to the present moment is through your breath, you’ll learn the two great gifts of being in the present moment, the now.

“I have felt completely broken-hearted and stuck, seeing my life slip and feeling like nothing was getting through to me. Heidi did. I feel lighter – I went on a walk with my dog this morning like I usually do, except the whole time I worked on loving kindness meditations and started to envision the life I want for myself, especially as it pertains to who I want to become, someone I want to partner with, the family I want to create, and the work I want to do.”
