Spiritual Talks and Sermons:
Cracking Open Your Heart—a Personal Story of Tapping into the Wisdom of Divine Spirit
“Kathy Elkind spoke at the Harvard UU Church about a very personal experience. She called her reflection "Cracking Open Your Heart.” Kathy calmly offered her story with humor and grace; her words rang strong and clear. She is a talented speaker. Her message was universal and important for each of us to hear. As she spoke I ran along the beach with her, felt her pain, experienced the beauty and the fear and finally the first moment of relief. It was a transforming experience.”
