Healthy Acadia will host, “A Heart-Centering Journey” with Martina Dittmar, on Thursday, July 1 from 5-6 p.m. The free online event is the fourth installment in Healthy Acadia’s Monthly Mindfulness series. 

“This is an experience of growing your right brain skills of feeling into the subtle levels of your being. We will visit the physical heart space, the energetic layer, the emotional part, and the spiritual heart,” said Martina Dittmar, Ayurvedic practitioner and spiritual counselor. “In this space lies the source of tremendous peace, bliss, light, creativity, intuition, and healing. We will use a subtle breathing method to send this healing light to other areas of our body. You will learn how to connect to this area of your being throughout the day. This practice is a type of contemplation and provides you the opportunity to pause and really live in the present moment and enjoy life.”
