The Hearts role redefined: It’s more than just a pump!
For decades the focus on heart health has been aligned with its vital role as a pump providing oxygen-rich blood and nutrients to all vital organs, cells and tissues. Research from the Institute of HeartMath has expanded the role of the heart emphasizing its significant impact on stress reduction and improved resilience. Scientific evidence confirm that heart rhythms are generated based on individual “feeling states” in the face of stress, trauma, and negative emotions. These changes result in reduced energy levels, ineffective communication, and immune system compromise.
This presentation will discuss the expanded role of the heart in balancing emotions, reducing stress, and facilitating emotional resilience. Participants will learn self-regulatory techniques designed to interrupt the negative stress response, promote renewing emotions, minimize energy drain and improve overall health and performance.
