Your Story Needed: HeartAwakening Experience
I am a graduate student in theDepth Psychology Program at Sonoma State University. I am writing a thesis about the heart. As part of my research, I am conducting interviews with several individuals who have experienced a heart awakening.
A heart awakening experience can bedescribed as a spiritual encounter with a loving force that is transpersonal,that is both beyond and within oneself. This experience is felt as numinous: atremendous and compelling force one encounters that has a mysteriouslyattractive and fateful meaning. Heart awakening has a variety of effects on the individual ranging from emotional despair to extreme bliss. Often the experience changes the lifecourse of the individual who goes through it. In order to differentiate a heart awakening experience froma spiritual one of a different or more general nature it has the characteristic quality of being viscerally known in the heart organ itself as it is being experienced.
If you have had a heart awakeningexperience and would like to share your story, please contact me for an interview. Your privacy will be protected should you wish to remain anonymous.
