This meditation enhances awareness of the subtle energy within matter. The five “hearts” of  Chinese medicine consist of four small chakras, one in
each palm of the hands and in the soles of the feet, plus the large heart chakra in the middle of the chest.  Five-Hearts Open is a moving
meditation that opens awareness to the energy within physical form, increasing your energy sensitivity. It plugs you into the Earth’s energy circuit
and enhances the direct experience of how interconnected all life is.
