Raghu Markus – Mindrolling – Ep. 489 – Heartfulness as a Way of Life with RamDev (Dale Borglum) and Jackie Dobrinska

In this special episode, Raghu, RamDev (Dale Borglum), and Jackie Dobrinska weave the tapestry for heartfulness as a way of life.

“The development of heartfulness will help—we expect—to transform the polarity that we’re living in within ourselves and in our society and culture.” – Raghu Markus

In this episode of Mindrolling, Raghu, RamDev, and Jackie tap into:
  • The path for cultivating heartfulness
  • The abundance of ways that one can be in the presence of the divine
  • Raghu meeting Ram Dass for the first time
  • Navigating suffering with an open heart
  • Practices for developing the heart-mind
  • The antidote for isolation and separateness
  • A heart-awakening meditation guided by RamDev

“The heart begins to reveal how spacious it is, how connected it is. It’s as vast as the sky. It’s boundless.” – RamDev

“To hold our humanity in the context of our divinity, that’s the work.” – RamDev
