May we relinquish the belief in our separation and find the courage to connect with a compassionate heart.

Welcome to Growing Our Voice! My name is Wendy Heckert (Ed.D). The purpose of this site is to provide quality and accessible resources for those interested in learning about mindfulness meditation and compassion practices. My hope is that these offerings help to grow your inner voice, your inner wisdom, which in turn grows your compassion for others. You can then hear our voice, see our common humanity. And together, we can create an inclusive and just world.
