Short documentary for GPIW.  "Our heart knows what our mind has forgotten - it knows the sacred that is within all that exists, and through a depth of feeling we can once again experience this connection, this belonging." ~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee. What does it mean to live from the heart? According to Dena Merriam, founding member of the Contemplative Alliance, it means living with a fuller appreciation of what it means to be a human being on this earth. The wisdom of the heart shows us our connection to the whole. If we move from a consciousness of just thinking about ourselves first, to one of the well-being of the whole, things will evolve naturally into a much more caring, loving, and sustainable society. Listen to Dena and other leaders from different spiritual practices share their thoughts on how we can live from the heart.
