Announcing the Launch of Our New Podcast Series – “Our Spiritual Heart”

By Ed Rubenstein, Ph.D.

The team at Heart Based Institute (HBI) is happy to announce the launch of our new podcast series – “Our Spiritual Heart.” The first episode has already been released so listen to it using the player below or on Spotify! Co-hosted by Kelsey Anderson and Kathy Grant, we will be discussing different topics over 15-episodes that explore our spiritual heart and our spiritual journey. Additionally, subsequent installments will feature a variety of guest speakers sharing lively insights and practical approaches covering such areas as heart-centered living, spiritual growth, well-being, relationships, leadership, and professional development.

spiritual growth from a heart-centered APPROACH

In my role as a Ph.D. level psychologist, I spent many years diligently teaching numerous mind-body interventions and mind based meditation approaches in a variety of clinical settings; and I was very committed to sharing these approaches. However, around the year 2000, I reached the conclusion through my own heart-felt experiences that these methods were limited. In particular, there was a missing component relating to the spiritual dimension of our lives – specifically, our spiritual heart. I clearly realized that our heart is the doorway to our deepest contentment, happiness, gratitude, and spiritual fulfillment and that these same feelings cannot be experienced through the doorway of the mind. Throughout our podcast, we will discuss these clear and important distinctions between mind-based or self-mastery approaches and a heart based approach to spirituality.

Our growing list of podcast topics

During the first 15 episodes of this series, we will explore such topics as:

  • An understanding of our spiritual heart
  • How our heart is the key to our connection with God, Creator, or what we refer to as True Source
  • The limitations of living with a dominant mind
  • The many profound benefits of opening our spiritual heart
  • Why the time we are living in is a spiritually special time
  • Why an open spiritual heart is the safest place to be
  • Spiritual principles for building a solid spiritual foundation
  • The trap of the performance based model
  • The illusion of spiritually trying to “get good enough”
