Meditation for a Broken Heart

7:00-8:30 pm EST

Donations are welcome!

About the Session

We must continue to be open in the face of great opposition. No one is encouraging us to be open, and still we must peel away the layers of the heart.

—Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Do you feel the pain and groundlessness of a broken heart? A broken heart is something most of us face at least once or several times during a lifetime. In this session, Chaplain Alley Smith will lead you through a guided meditation to help you begin to heal from a broken heart. 

Privacy: We respect your privacy.  This program will not be recorded to protect the privacy of individuals who want to share their deep and heartfelt experiences of having a broken heart.

This Session Offers:

  • An opportunity to decompress after the holidays and reset
  • An opportunity to practice meditation in community
  • An opportunity to share your experience of a broken heart in a safe and supportive contemplative community
  • An opportunity to practice in the comforts of your own home and/or practice space
  • A guided meditation on developing gentleness toward “the thinking mind”
  • A space to send love and healing to your heart 
  • A space to share your compassion with others
