What Do I Need to Participate?
HeartWork is held via private videoconferencing using the site www.zoom.us. To participate you minimally need a microphone which is usually built into computers. If you have a webcam or camera on your laptop that is ideal. During the session on www.zoom.us we are able to converse as if we were in the same room.
To participate you will be directed to go to www.zoom.us and click “Join a Meeting”
You will be asked to enter a Meeting ID.
The Meeting ID is supplied upon registration.
The first time you use zoom.us the site will download a small program to your computer in order to be able to run.
How many meetings are there?
There 8 meetings in HeartWork Immersion
In these 8 meetings we explore the movement from inattention to that special quality of watchfulness that brings our mind and body together and opens the door to the heart and to prayer. There are exercises that facilitate the subtle journey inward to the heart, offering practical ways of working with ones emotions and finding freedom from patterns of thinking, reacting, and behaving that are blocking the way to greater joy in our life and union with God.
There are 8 meetings in HeartWork in Christ
In these 8 or more meetings we build on the shift in awareness and presence we have experienced in the first 8 meetings. Within the greater backdrop of salvation history and the fall in the Garden, we explore our identification with the passions and the purification of the nous, the guidance to softening our heart from Theophan the Recluse and St. Ignatius of Loyola, how to disidentify with the passionate thoughts that enter our mind, the living of the beatitudes as presented by Nicholas Cabasillas, hesychism, Deification, and living in Christ.
As we begin HeartWork together, we can direct the program according to your particular spiritual needs.
What is the cost?
The cost for the HeartWork sessions is $30 per meeting.
