Experiencing Diversity through our different Senses and Intelligences



Guided Daily Meditation and Reflection Practices: an offering from Shelley Ostroff

A guided meditation, reflections and practices will be offered each day by Shelley Ostroff inviting you into an exploration of the essence and vibration of the daily themes. Journalling the thoughts, images, dreams, emotions, sensations and experiences that arise throughout the entire week can deepen your journey through these seven days

There’s a rhythm coming through

It’s showing us there’s something new

With its beat we can step aside

Follow nature as our guide

Feeling deeply into sound

Listening to the pulsing ground

Potent meetings beyond reason

Planting fruits for every season

It’s different when we recognize

There is no hierarchy of shape or size

Or color, texture, taste or prism In our holographic organism

In each other we’re reflected

Yes, it seems we’re all connected

                     ~ Shelley Ostroff, from IS

02.01.2020, DAY TWO: EXPERIENCE Experiencing Diversity Through our Different Senses and Intelligences

  1. Inviting the Experience of Radiant DiversitySitting in a quiet and restful space, invite in an honoring way, the experience of Radiant Diversity to reveal itself to you. Spend some time experiencing yourself and your surroundings through your different physical senses. What is your experience as you allow each of the different senses to become the primary portal for your experience? Begin to sense into how they work together with other, more hidden intelligences, to provide the wholeness of your experience in the now.

  2. Radiant Diversity within: Sense into the inner world of your body-mind. Notice the inner sensations moving through you at any given moment. What is calling your attention? Notice the workings of your mind as you move between the more rational, emotional, imaginative, intuitive and other portals of meaning making. Sense into how all these diverse portals work together to enrich your experience of life and inform you about your inner state of being. Notice what happens as you more consciously activate these portals and acknowledge them for the essential and life-enriching information they offer.

  3. Radiant Diversity without: Sense into your environment. What diversity calls your attention? What are the different forms and colors and movements and sounds that draw your attention? As you attend to the world of differences around you how does this shift your relationship your environment. What is pleasurable and nourishing to you? What is less pleasurable? 

  4. The Nature of Radiant Diversity and the Diversity of Radiant Nature: Find a place in nature or imagine that you are in a familiar natural environment, what is your sense of Radiant Diversity. How does it reveal itself to you? What is it showing you?

  5. Portals of Experience: As you go about your day, pay attention to the different kinds of differences you notice - what draws your attention? What are your primary portals for experiencing these differences? Which physical senses are more active? Which mental and emotional portals are more active? Are you more focused on the diversity among humans, and if so which differences call your attention? Are you more focused on the diversity of your natural environment? What aspects of the diversity in your natural environment call your attention? As you become more aware of the more active portals of experience, you may want to consciously explore engaging with diversity through the senses and intelligences that are less familiar to you. How does this shift your perspective and experience of yourself and of the world around you?

  6. The Offering: How would you like to honor the diverse senses and intelligences that enable this rich encounter with the world around you? Perhaps you would like to express your gratitude through a daily practice, an artistic expression, a blessing or any other form of appreciation?

  7. The Intention: How has this encounter transformed you, and what wish and intention has come forth within you from this reflective experience?

  8. Sensing your Vitality Code - Nature’s code for ever-evolving harmony in diversity and empathy with all of Life.


Spend some time reflecting on your own Vitality Code:

 - What do you most love to give to the world? Which of your different senses and intelligences most inform your ability to give these gifts to the world?

 - What do you need to receive in order to be able to offer your unique gifts to the whole? Which of your diverse senses and intelligences must be nourished, and in what way to enable you to give these gifts?

 - How do you imagine yourself thriving in your fullest potential in mutual nourishment with your immediate community and all of Life? How does this picture activate your different senses and intelligences?

For more information about the Vitality Code, please visit the Vitality Code Gateway

Art from the Heart of Radiant Diversity and the Vitality Code: Express what is most alive in you from these different reflections and practices through any form of art – dance, music, visual arts etc.  If you would like to share your Heartist offering and inspire others with it, please share it in our Community Sharing Space.

Blessings for a deeply meaningful day of connecting with, remembering and honoring the Experience of Radiant Diversity of the senses and intelligences within you and beyond you that contribute to making Life all that it is.

The End of Suffering ~ The Great Bell Chant  

1-7 January



Daily Message

and Chant

All of humankind is being invited into a greater conscious Love; a deeper richer vibration of Love, Compassion, and Healing. One might say, the Greatest Love we have ever known. By playing the End of Suffering, Great Bell Chant each day for 7 days, all are simultaneously enjoined into its frequency, message and mission. We call this The Ceremony of the Bells. This is a wonderful way to raise the vibration of Earth; the vibration of humanity and set a clear vibrational and conscious intention for this special year: 2020, the Year of the Encircling our Planet with Love.

Each day is started by a special message associated with the theme of the day followed by the "End of Suffering" Great Bell Chant, read by Thich Nath Hanh, chanted by brother Phap Niem. The creators of this audio track were Gary Malkin, the composer/arranger, producer, and collaborator Michael Stillwater. The work came from a CD/book called Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, and it can be purchased by going to

Clare's Quote for Day 2: Experience

"What is asking to be experienced through intimacy with all that is? What is it that you think you are, it may only be a fraction of the truth? What is it that you become when you experience your vibration interacting with that of those that you love or those that you do not know? What if the privilege of being alive is life itself asking to experience intimacy with everything that it is, with every kind of intelligence and consciousness through an endless flurry of sensation, impression, perception and translation..."

Transformation 365 & Contemplative Life ~ Daily Contemplative Practice

1-7 January

Video Release

Daily at

Here's a practice that will change the way you see the world.
Since childhood, we’ve all developed unconscious filters or veils through which we perceive life. They are often based on painful self-judgement and cause us to see the infinite potential of life and ourselves with a limited view. They hinder joy, creativity, and ultimately the realization of our fundamentally unbound and free nature. This practice will give you the direct experience of seeing beyond these veils as you open your eyes to the realization of pure awakened awareness as the truth of who you are.

In the field of awakening consciousness, David Ellzey is a teacher, author, awareness mentor, and transformational performer with clients including The United Nations and individuals and organizations across five continents. In his gentle yet laser-clear way, he teaches people how to let go of their filters of limitation and begin to recognize the unlimited reality of Self, even amidst the challenges of daily human life. A contributor to various consciousness journals, David is author of the book The Ocean of Now.

"I love to connect this ‘rolling om’ with the global zeitgeist, working for global harmony and right relationship with Mother Nature.

I took part in the ‘7 Days of Rest and Reflection‘ last year and found it to be a wonderful way to begin a new year and set intentions. A way to feel part of a global healing and also a great way to loosen up my thinking and become more open to ‘otherness’ and the wider picture."
