This retreat will explore why our heart is the portal into God's Heart and how we can find that connection in our sādhana. Guided meditations, śakti transmission, discussion, and Q&A are blended into each retreat to deepen your practice. May include a Program Introduction and Invocation Puja.

The Heart, says Abhinavagupta [11th century Tantric master], is the very Self of Śiva, and of the Devī, the Goddess who is inseparable from Śiva.

Indeed, the Heart is the site of their union in full embrace. This abode is pure consciousness as well as unlimited bliss.

As consciousness, the Heart is the unbounded, infinite light (prakāśa) as well as the freedom (svātantrya) and spontaneity (vimarśa) of that light to appear in a multitude and variety of forms.

The Heart is the Ultimate (anuttarā) which is both utterly transcendent to and yet totally immanent in all created things. It is the ultimate essence.

The Heart is the Unbounded and Universal Self.

Paul Ortega-Muller in his book, The Triadic Heart of Siva.
