This seventy-second episode is an excellent way to sustain your own personal heart-practices. We also hope it will be a supportive tool for you to offer to your clients, patients and colleagues.

Our guest, Oren Jay Sofer, is a former Buddhist monk and author of the newly released book, Your Heart Was Made for This; Contemplative Practices for Meeting a World in Crisis with Courage, Integrity, and Love. Oren talks with us about the crucial importance of awakening the natural and powerful capacities for transformation that reside within each person’s heart, especially during this very tumultuous time in our world.

Oren opens up to Deborah Rozman, our host, about how Buddhist teachings talk about qualities of the heart as resources that empower a different and more enlightened consciousness. Oren shares the heart qualities that were access points to his own transformation and how he practiced them.

A seasoned teacher in mindfulness, meditation, and Nonviolent Communication, Oren conveys insightful wisdom in a warm and engaging manner. He encourages us to practice and fortify our own connection to heart qualities, so they become an underlying foundation for how we live and engage with the world.

Deborah and Oren explore how each quality of the heart possesses unique attributes that empower us to better handle life’s situations, fostering a deeper connection with our purpose, inner courage, strength, and clarity.

In his conversation with Deborah, Oren shares a vision of transformative potential by merging activism and heart. Together, they explore how this union has the power to reshape society, paving the way for collaborative models that honor our shared humanity.

The episode closes with a heart-inspired meditation to energize the growing heart momentum unfolding on the planet, and seeing more people connect with their true heart’s purpose and desire to co-create a world that awakens humanity’s collective heart.
