*heart wide open* is a community project based in Wolfville Nova Scotia (and initiated by Heidi Kalyani) that explores ways of bringing both heartfulness and mindfulness into our everyday lives!
heartfulness – listening to our inner voice, and living with loving kindness
mindfulness – being fully in the present moment with openness and curiosity
*heart wide open* offers a variety of weekly, monthly and occasionally recurring practices, which are open to everyone! These include:
- weekly offerings (Seeds from Silence, Singing with Heart)
- monthly offerings (Living Mindfulness, Kirtan, Conversation Circles and Heartful Writing)
- occasional offerings (such as mindful walks, contemplative concerts, as well as workshops and retreats on various heartful and mindful topics)
The intention of *heart wide open* is to cultivate compassion, connection, insight and transformation — within ourselves, with each other and within our communities.
