Product Description

The heart is the place where we hold our hurts and wounds. Generally, we spend an enormous amount of time protecting ourselves from such painful memories. Yet, in the depths of our hearts, there is a deep understanding that at times we actually need these painful experiences in order to mature and reach our full potential. When you close yourself off, your life begins to feel small and without love, causing you to retreat and withdraw further. By feeling the texture of your pain and frustration, you gain awareness and can acknowledge the wounds and barriers that separate you from your heart, love and growth. When you open yourself up and are vulnerable, love is expressed through everything you do. Love is always accessible through an open heart.

By listening to this guided meditation, Awakening of the Heart, you will have the possibility to release from old burdens – allowing the feelings and emotions associated with them to flow, enhancing personal healing and growth. This meditation supports you as you soften and become vulnerable to what you hold in your own heart. Closed doors can open again, and healing can happen.

Prepare for this meditation by creating an environment that is quiet and where you will not be disturbed. Sit down, make yourself comfortable, wear loose clothes and let your body relax. Empty your mind and allow your heart to open as you move into this meditation. Allow for a few minutes afterwards for personal time and reflection. Please refrain from listening to this meditation when you drive.

  1. “A respected teacher of Osho meditation, relationship counseling, and couples therapy, German-born Turiya Hanover promises to help listeners transform hate and anger to love, bitterness and resentment into compassion, in her superb CD, Awakening of the Heart. The disc is broken up into two tracks; the first finds Hanover guiding a meditation of awakening. She has a pleasantly maternal German-accented voice, raspy and centered, that fuses strength and focus with a playful sense of mildness and calm. Unobtrusive and almost dreamlike in her cadence, it’s clear Hanover knows how to reach your innermost ear.
    In encouraging us to feel our heart right now in this moment, Hanover provides a sense of safety and support for us to open our heart’s defenses, to risk exposure of our inner self, to open ourselves like a flower to the strange beauty of the cosmos. ‘Let yourself be wrapped into a soft blanket of friendliness, awareness, and love,’ she advises. In this, Hanover grants us subtle permission to let our guard down, to face and let go of past misunderstandings, wounds and rejections. The key here is to embrace the compassionate, fully in the moment nature of Hanover‚s guidance. Breath-controlling numerical countdowns and relaxation exercises are scuttled in favor of tenderly phrased platitudes regarding the nature of the most hallowed treasure within, love. You can start this meditation at any time; begin the disc while washing the dishes and let her voice sink in until you find yourself sitting in full lotus almost by accident, your senses awakening from a blinders-on sl! umber. With her guidance we are able to see that our past hurts are necessary to mature, grow and expand. Everything in our experience is an essential part of our journey into mindfulness.
    The second track is instrumental, courtesy of the prolific and beloved New Age artist Parijat. It‚s a beguiling and soothing mix of drones and extended ambient sound that register in the mind‚s ear as long, drawn-out breaths. Chimes and ascending pitches alternate in a tonic-dominant cycle of fifths. A classical guitar arpeggio slowly winds into view, linking this soothing work with those of past luminaries such as J.S. Bach. The music never enters the world of melody or sinks into pure ambience. And Hanover doesn’t overcrowd the disc with exercises. After guiding you into a place of acceptance and perfect bliss, Hanover steps aside and lets Parijat take you farther out, into the spaces of your freshly awakened heart where language cannot reach”
