Tending the Heart Fire: Living in Flow with the Pulse of Life
Yoga teachers and students are often left fascinated by the complex depths the practice of yoga can offer, but with nothing but esoteric or confusing texts to guide them through a world of mantras, mudras, and rhythms. Rea starts at the beginning and brings novice readers quickly up to speed, and into such deep territory that advanced students will be delighted and challenged. Beginning her study with a focus on the heart and expanding from there, she explains how the concept of the heart fire has been a focus of many cultures for thousands of years. Cultivating and tending that fire – the fire of primeval love, passion, and dedication- is a service of devotion that has been neglected in a generation of rushing to the next big thing. Rea begins with the focus on the science of the heart – heart rhythm and brainwaves, the impact of breath control, connectivity of the brain and the body, heart-to-heart entrainment. Learning to let the body flow in sync with the cycles of the earth – with concepts as novel as going to bed when it gets dark out – and using moving meditation and simple spontaneous flows, she teaches the student to experience the unwinding and energizing that can come from tuning your body, once again, to the heart fire.
