at last week’s retreat, we did this amazingly powerful heart sharing and holding exercise/ritual. I can’t really put words to it, but it was striking, and left a deep impression on most of us (I think/feel). it is quite rare that we bare our hearts, and even more rare for them to be held, silently but fully, without a word being uttered.
as we walked out that night, I heard this song clearly in my mind and heart….fittingly called Vide Cor Meum – or, in english, See My Heart. opera doesn’t always sing to my heart (see what I did there?), but this makes my heart close its eyes and sway around, no lie.
(the video below with the song is simply scenes from a film – not related. although I do love that film too!)
when the latin is translated, you get the words below – while they aren’t explicitly describing what we experienced….in some way, they feel like what we experienced to me.
see my heart.
