Unify the Heart to Walk in Truth:

An exploration in knowing our Authentic Selves

We have all had experiences where the heart can become divided, within oneself and in the world, causing confusion and uncertainty. These powerful practices and guided experiences will help us unify the divided parts within ourselves such that we can authentically walk in Truth.
