Our Lineage at Flowering Heart Center includes White Buffalo Calf Woman.
She has appeared to us a couple of times during our journey with this center.
Frank has a sacred ceremonial pipe which is used on rare occasions to call in the
Native American ancestors and honor them. These ancestors have appeared to us
from time to time, starting with the ceremony in 2012 to formally establish the center
in our Downers Grove location. We had been holding weekly events there since 2009.
When we moved to our current location in Wheaton, we were gifted with a beautiful
pastel drawing of White Buffalo Calf woman which now hangs in a place of honor.
We have monthly drum circles to celebrate this connection.
While we honor all paths at Flowering Heart Center, we especially honor our lineages
which include the Native Americans, Sri Amma and Bhagavan in India, Shematrix
in Australia, and the Seraphic Order of the Flowering Heart
(from our sister center in Clearwater).

For the past 9 years, Harmony has been on a journey of spirituality. This is where she was introduced to Kirtan/ Sanskrit. Her first experience of Kirtan was like meeting a old friend. It felt natural, easy and very familiar. For the past 9 years, Harmony has worked on developing her unique connection to the Mantras. She has learned by directly experiencing the powerful nature of these sound vibrational prayers.
She has studied with Masters of Kirtan in India and in Bali. She has also studied Indian classical music which has opened her reality to a whole new world. Harmony plays a instrument called a Harmonium. This is considered a wind instrument as the left hand creates the wind and the right hand plays the instrument which looks like a piano. She is a trained piano player which gives her hands the mobility to create hypnotic sounds.
Harmony offers not only Kirtan and Sound Medicine, she also offers Sacred Haircuts and other forms of healing that is focused on liberation and freedom. For more information on Harmony please visit her website www.harmonypolo.com
