After the completion of iamU, our two-year training in Heart Rhythm Meditation, we offer further courses of study in Mentoring, Heart-Energy Healing, and now the latest program, Spiritual Leadership.

So what is a spiritual leader in this day and age?

The definition is broad and diverse.  The world is a beautiful mess: people suffer from all kinds of ailments, physical, emotional, and spiritual.  Our daily lives are complicated by the tension between sweet moments and painful moments.  We all understand the human predicament of longing for happiness, for health, for deeper understanding, for better jobs, more stability, more love. 

The spiritual leaders are the guides who help make meaning of this suffering, who know the path, who volunteer to act as servants in their communities.  Their perspective includes both the practical and the mystical.  There are many people who might qualify as spiritual leaders— rabbis, priests, imams, gurus, therapists, friends, grandparents, school teachers.

In iamHeart, our spiritual leaders use Heart Rhythm Meditation to develop their intuition, breath capacity, emotional understanding, and ability to live their human lives with more flow, success, and wisdom.

I was living in Pasadena when Mount St. Helens blew.

A friend from Oregon showed me a bottle of gray ash he had collected from a driveway-- the cataclysm seemed near in connection at that moment. It was the greatest volcanic explosion of recent times. A mountain’s worth of superheated rock raced through pristine valleys for miles, leaving nothing-- nothing but sterile gray ash. It was not that spring, nor the next, but the third spring that saw delicate green shoots appearing amidst the ash. Those shoots were the optimism of life: the mountain had stolen the present, but those tender shoots owned the future.

As we see it, the soul is the seed of individuality.

Each soul is a unique individuality, an unduplicated combination of the resources and qualities of the universe. The soul defines an individual, so it holds that essential formula that describes how one person is fundamentally different from all others.

We think losing weight is really hard. Everyone knows how to do it -- you either eat less or exercise more -- so it's not a lack of technique.

There is something that keeps us at our weight. We have to understand that reason before we can hope to change it.

"Breath is the first lesson, and it is also the last."

 

The Physiology of Breath and Consciousness

So here’s the thing. Your mind is not your brain. In fact, your brain is not your brain, or at least it's only part of it. Tucked under the cortex we think we think with, are all the old brains, the hind-brains, the core structures of living and emoting and paying attention -- and breathing. And these brains in our skulls are continuous with the intelligence of the spinal cord, again encased in its own protective skeleton. But there are major nerve trunks and nuclei outside the spine, notably the vagus (or wandering) nerve that goes to the heart and organs.
