Abiding in the Luminous Heart

A practice offered by Atum O’Kane (inspired by Padmasambhava)

Begin by taking a few conscious breaths, relaxing into yourself and slowly, with awareness, be deeply with each of these inner reflections. Breathe with them; allow them to penetrate into your core.

Deeply rooted… in the present moment;


Seeing from a clear, open spacious mind;


Beyond doubt and fear;


Abiding in the Luminous Heart of equinimity;


The way unfolds before me.


This practice has been shared by Shanti Huebner, Mana Retreat trustee, and taken as an excerpt from her recently published book ‘Finding the Luminous Field’.
