The Heart of Who We Are
A Community Gathering with Caverly Morgan and Rashid Hughes
Join Caverly Morgan and Rashid Hughes for an online exploration of how meditation and contemplative technologies designed for the realization of personal freedom can — and must be — applied collectively.
Caverly’s new book, The Heart of Who We Are: realizing freedom together, offers a wealth of teachings and reflections, solo and group exercises, and personal stories that inspire us to put our values into action, connecting with the deepest truth of who we are.
Rashid, a meditation teacher and restorative justice facilitator, and Caverly, a meditation teacher, author and nonprofit founder, invite you to be in dialogue not only about the teachings offered in The Heart of Who We Are, but also about how their work intertwines. Join these two lovers of truth as they explore:
- How are nondual teachings relevant in times like these?
- What is collective liberation?
- How is love the ground of our shared being and what does that mean for our relative world today?
- What is enlightened activity, truly?
In 2023, Caverly and Rashid will be guiding others through a year-long collective experience revolving around the teachings offered in The Heart of Who We Are, supporting others in living on behalf of this deep truth. For more about the book and the upcoming collective experience.
Excerpt from the book
“The heart of truth can be found in all things, in all circumstances, in all times. This book is about acting in the world on behalf of this truth. It’s about reconciling our personal desire for truth and freedom with our desire to relieve suffering in the world. Our suffering is not separate from the suffering of the world. Our liberation is not separate from the liberation of the world. Our liberation is the act of being. Our liberation is love itself.”
“Transcendence and transformation. In The Heart of Who We Are, Caverly deftly holds two seemingly opposing truths — our shared being of oneness whose nature is peace, and our shared world of apparent separation and its suffering — and invites us to explore how our true nature might find its fullest expression in both ourselves and the collective. This beautiful and courageous book not only provides a way for us to explore who we are and how we are in the world but stands as a shining example of what it means to do both.” — Rupert Spira
“We live in a world and times in which we are increasingly confronted by division, uncertainty, and a falling away of things we once took as unshakable. With The Heart of Who We Are, Caverly Morgan extends a hand of kindness that coaxes readers to embrace the necessary journey of rediscovering themselves, and the compassion of walking alongside them. She generously offers her hard-earned wisdom — as a monk, a teacher, and a willing student of life — as a practical manual to turn fear into curiosity, confusion into awareness, and separation into love. You will return to this book, over and over again.” — Rev. angel Kyodo williams
“Caverly Morgan’s writing is immediately intimate, fresh, and friendly — and it goes straight to your heart. She combines spiritual depth with enormous practical wisdom. I loved reading her personal stories, mind-stopping enlightenment zaps, effective suggestions, brief psychological exercises, and gentle humorous encouraging guidance. She is a true friend to the reader, a deeply realized being who is utterly committed to your healing and awakening. A gem! ” — Rick Hanson, Ph.D.
