What is it we are looking for when we meditate? In the hundreds and hundreds of emails sent to top online meditation teacher Sarah Blondin, people tell her this: they want to get in touch with their feeling hearts. They want to slow down and give themselves loving attention. Most of all, her listeners come to her popular meditations on the InsightTimer app because they want to stop listening to their thoughts and start hearing what's truly calling them.

In her new book, Heart Minded, Blondin offers extended meditations in a style that her fans call "spiritual poetry" or "heart food," in words that carry a healing frequency. This beautifully formatted gift book is created with an airy design to give you space to savor the words. You can read it front to back for a full course in "heart mindedness" or open it anywhere to relax, unhook from stress, and access your heart's infinite wisdom.

Sarah Blondin invites you to experience meditation as a form of deep self-care. "The preciousness housed within you needs to be blown on like a hot coal, stoked with encouraging words and attention, cocooned in self-love, genuinely cared for." The trouble, she says, is that we tend to think too much and feel too little. "The mind thrives on problem seeking and solving; the heart thrives on acceptance of all things and labels nothing as wrong or right."

While our minds are busy complicating everything, our hearts are always available to direct and guide us through life. We just need to remember how to listen. Let Heart Minded show you how.

Review quote

"We suffer when we become separated from our deepest, truest nature. Heart Minded offers us guidance on the sacred journey home . . . helping us to awaken from our busy, never satisfied minds to the heartspace where love is always and already right here." --Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance

"A relevant, practical guide, full of inspiration to help you clear the channel of your heart and follow your truth." --Elena Brower, bestselling author of Practice You

"Gentle and wise, Blondin's approach is characterized by the bedside manner of devoted midwife to your healing process. Like her voice, it is a soothing poultice for the weary-but-spirited seeker. Heart Minded will crack you open down the middle from page one. It is all at once a centering meditation, a practice, and an olive branch extended into the depths of your soul." --Pixie Lighthorse, author of Prayers of Honoring

"There is so much that can be said about this collection of work. It embodies a bold truth that encourages self-reflection. Heart Minded unleashes the inner magic of unfolding to bloom." --Alexandra Elle, author of Neon Soul, Words from a Wanderer, and Love in My Language

"In a world fraught with separation, anxiety, and distraction, there can never be enough positive attention given, never enough prayer, never enough books about love. Heart Minded is the antidote, the great reminder, to be heart- and love-focused moment to precious moment. Raw, direct, and accessible, this book invites and instructs you, as Mary Oliver once advised, to 'love the soft animal of your body.' Sarah Blondin, with equal softness of voice and heart, says, in effect, yes, it's safe 'to step into the wisdom of your own sensitivity' with heart wide open (listen up, fellow men, this is not a book for women alone!). Here you will find healing, creativity, and bright awakening beyond your wildest dreams." --Albert Flynn DeSilver, author of Writing as a Path to Awakening

"Seems the great 14-century Persian mystic Hafiz may have written an endorsement for this book years ago. As a famous rendering of some of his verse by me goes:

'How did the rose ever open its heart and give to the world
all of its beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light-- of love--against its
being, otherwise one might remain too frightened.'

The heart, even on its better days, can be just one wing needed to fly.
The other wing--love from someone else, or from a beautiful creature,
or some synergy with a gorgeous mountain or sky--can cause your
spirit to awake, unfurl, give thanks and know joy.

Sarah Blondin and her love, and this beautiful book, can be a golden wing, I bet, to many. I hope this book helps the whole world to dance." --Daniel Ladinsky, international bestselling poet and author
