The Heart of the Matrix—Healing the Mind, Stress, Insomnia, Anxiety & Depression

with David Crow


An Evening Workshop
Thursday, April 1, 2021, 6:30 – 9:30 pm ET

The body is a pulsating matrix of energies and elements, kept alive by the beating of the heart; the heartbeat is the outer expression of our inner pranic essence and that in turn is ultimately derived from Mahat, the mind of the universe. The concepts discussed here will focus on topics such as the luminosity of our presence, the impact of moods on immunity and our cognitive functions.

Cultivating this awareness has important applications for healing mental and emotional disturbances, especially stress, insomnia, anxiety and depression, as the luminosity of the heart is related to how we process stimuli from the world and our emotional reactions to it. The goal of these traditional practices is to cleanse and return us to a spiritual level, purifying our consciousness in order to return to our true luminous nature, the primary goal of yogic and meditative traditions.

What You Will Learn:


  • The self-love and self-nourishment of heart focused meditation
  • How the prana of the heart is the link between spirit, mind and body
  • Seven levels of heart prana: the deeper energetic, spiritual/cognitive dimensions of the heart
  • Understanding Shen, the luminosity of the heart as described by Chinese medicine
  • The role of botanical medicine in supporting the luminosity of the heart
  • One heartbeat: deepening spiritual awareness by understanding the pulsation of the universe from stars to microbes
  • The biological connections between flowers, the heart and the menstrual cycle


  • Listening to the heart: cultivating self-nourishment and developing emotional intelligence
  • The seven levels of heart prana: contemplating the life force that animates the heart (Meditations to study the seven levels of heart prana) The best herbs and oils to enhance heart centered meditations and supporting the brightness of the spirit
