Welcome to our Big Heart Family!
We love being on this Big Heart Journey with you.
“The Big Heart Journey” is a collection of 30 dynamic “meditations” called Heart Hugs. Heart Hugs can be done alone or in a group, some are for sitting and some are for dancing. You can play the whole journey from beginning to end, or you can puddle-jump to specific life events.
It is our hope that everyone who listens to this album feels safe and feels loved for exactly who they are. We hope it helps children realize how incredibly powerful they are, that they are never alone and that they are connected to every single other person on the planet.
Inside your heart is everything you will ever need.
What to do when someone is being unkind to you? What if you are being unkind to someone else? What do we do with so many feelings?!
“The Big Heart Journey” will give dialogue to help make sense of scary things and big feelings. It shows us that we are all the same; we are all connected, and we are all our hearts! You will feel more connected to your family and yourselves, reminded of the importance of every single little-big moment and filled with love and gratitude for this time that you get to spend together.
Everything that happens in our lives is a chance to grow our hearts.
This is not a music album. It’s an album about life. It’s an album about love.
Your heart lives in every single thing you do all day long.
Your heart lives in me
My heart lives in you.
How Big Can Your Heart Get?
You get to decide.
We have added three Bonus tracks at the end of the Big Heart Journey: The Seed (for when someone dies); Better Feeling Thoughts (for if your parents are getting divorced) and A Moment for Parents (morning meditation for parents). As these deal with specific, sometimes difficult subjects, we recommend putting these 3 bonus tracks on a separate playlist for if they are ever needed.
