True Source of Love Meditation

Our Heart's Direct Connection To The Source Of Unconditional Love

True Source of Love Meditation, developed by Irmansyah Effendi M.Sc. in collaboration with Heart Based Institute, teaches participants a universal, enjoyable, easy to learn, and time effective heart based approach to relaxation and meditation that naturally promotes health and well-being while reducing stress and preventing burnout. This is fundamentally different from many forms of meditation in that it does not utilize visualization, mantras, directed intention, observing as a witness, focus, energy channeling, or energy cultivation. 

True Source of Love Meditation is a simple way to connect to the natural state of peace, calm, joy, and gratitude through the heart’s connection to the Source of Unconditional Love. It is easy to learn and no prior meditation experience is needed – just a heart and a smile!

For clarification, it was the advanced level of True Source of Love Meditation that was utilized in our groundbreaking cancer research study with the University of Maryland School of Medicine. 

Begin to understand and enjoy the many transformative benefits that living in heart-mind alignment brings by exploring our online courses.
