The New Vision...


International Holistic Spiritual Center



"Flowering Heart" is the DBA of our 41 year-old 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization. Our ultimate purpose is to assist the global shift in human consciousness which is already taking place, by awakening one heart at a time. When enough of us experience our hearts flowering with compassion and unconditional love, we will finally let go of a world rooted  in separation, competition, conflict and violence and usher in a new civilization built on the foundation of unity, cooperation, harmony and peace.


Question: We notice that you and Flowering Heart have recently gone through a shift. What happened to bring about your change in direction? What is "Integral Spiritual Growth", and what is your new vision for Flowering Heart Center?


Dear Friends,


We asked the Divine “Is there something we could add to what we are already doing to facilitate our own growth and the growth of those we serve?”


The answers began to pour in… some easy to accept, some more challenging.


The challenging part is that to receive new insights, we have to let go of the familiar, of our current roles and identities, of all that is safe and certain. Empty your cup and put on “beginner’s mind”. Take a step off the cliff, in pure faith, without a net. Whoosh! Dive naked into the hands of God. We did. It worked. Answers came, and in the months ahead, we will begin to share some of our discoveries with you.


Integral Spiritual Growth: We began to see that in the pursuit of spiritual growth, it is possible to become so focused on awakening and higher states of consciousness, that we ignore the development of other important aspects of our humanity. This can lead to a lack of full participation in life and a false idea about our actual level of consciousness.


We came to understand that Integral spiritual growth and practice must include body work (such as yoga, Ch'i Kung, exercise, nutrition and various healing modalities, mind work (fostering cognitive development, learning, study, clear thinking, discrimination, taking responsibility for decision making and psychological wellness, spiritual work (including meditation and contemplation, prayer, devotional practices, energy transfers, cultivating higher states of consciousness, etc.), and shadow work (to discover and reintegrate our disowned selves and suppressed unconscious material). Re-owning our shadows takes the practice of simply experiencing and transcending our charges to a profoundly deeper level of insight and breakthrough.


Truly holistic practice could also include working on other areas of our humanity, such as ethics, relationships, sexuality, work, prosperity, community outreach and service, and more.


People and Places of Power: This is a time when many people are making pilgrimages to powerful energy vortexes and great spiritual teachers in search of awakening. We see the need to balance this with the realization that, without going anywhere, you are already sitting in the center of the most powerful energy vortex you will ever find, your True Self. Your Heart is the actual temple of transformation, and your own inner Divine, your Higher Self, is the master you must discover to gain enlightenment and realization. There is simply nothing “out there” with more power and wisdom to do it for you than what is already inside of you, right now, right where you are, exactly as you are.


Yes, we need each other. No one can make the spiritual journey without the help of others. We may benefit greatly from teachers and transmissions to help awaken us to our own Divinity. That being said, true freedom is to follow our inner Divine and to be free from dependence on outer forms, structures, teachers, hierarchies, paths, practices, beliefs and rules.


About the Witness: We have also come to see that our awakening consciousness must grow to embrace and integrate all aspects of our human experience. Although it is certainly a positive step on our journey to experience ourselves as pure awareness, it is not the goal to simply witness our human life from a detached perspective, saying, “I am not this body. I am not this mind. I am not these pesky thoughts and charges. I am not those things I am experiencing. I am not the outer world. I am only the consciousness witnessing it all.” No! Don’t stop there. That is still separation and duality.


Unity consciousness says “I am that. I am everything. It’s all me. I own it. I embrace it.” The awakened state is not just some transcendent detached blissful nirvana. It is the union of formless open silent awareness with all the raw down and dirty chaos of our embodied human experience, with all of its messy conflicts, emotions, thoughts, feelings and struggles, all of it happening simultaneously with inner peace, openness and silence undisturbed at the core! That’s oneness with it all, not just identification with the stuff that feels good, or the stuff we can see, while bypassing parts of our humanity that don’t feel so nice, or parts that we are blind to, areas that may still need work.


Inasmuch as this center is not tied to the support or agenda of any single teacher, organization, religion, faith tradition or belief system, it can remain open to teachers, teachings and practices from all disciplines and paths that contribute to holistic and balanced spiritual growth.


For those who do not live near us, we offer weekly LIVE online meetings, courses and events. The center is set up so that we can webcast many of our meetings, courses and events worldwide. For details click here.
