The Free Heart
“When we engage in the practice of discovering space, we should develop the feeling of opening ourselves out completely to the entire universe. We should open ourselves with absolute simplicity and nakedness of mind. This is the powerful and ordinary practice of dropping the mask of self-protection.”
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
The Free Heart group sessions offer teachings and explorations around the ever-present Openness of Life and to how relax into what is already profoundly complete.
What we all look for – love, fulfillment, connection, freedom, ease, or peace – is already available, closer than our own breath.
Yet, our constant habit of looking outside of ourselves or superimposing what we long for onto all kinds of objects prevents us from seeing, that who we really are is what we have been searching for all along.
Once we have a glimpse of our true nature in our own direct experience, our lives transform in unforeseen ways. If we are honest in our devotion to Truth – no stone will be left unturned. All the painful beliefs, distorted self-identities, and innocent misunderstandings that live in the underbelly of our daily experience – creating suffering for ourselves and those around us – will come up to be examined and brought to peace.
Annette offers a group-environment that fosters safety, authenticity, and natural compassion. Every challenging experience is welcomed and everyone who has an interest in living as Openness and be true to the Heart is supported in their awakening and unfolding.
Group Sessions usually contain guided meditations and experiential inquiries, as well as ample space for dialogue and in-depth exploration around the chosen topic of the session.
