Shownotes for Episodes 56 & 57
Robert Browning, PhD (h.c.)
Heartmath Director of Health Partnerships & Senior Trainer
Many people don't realize the degree to which signals from one's heart regulate the brain. The Heartmath Institute has researched the psychophysiology of stress, resilience, and the interactions between the heart and brain for over 28 years.
Based on this research, the Heartmath Institute has developed technologies to help people self-regulate the communication between heart and brain. Heartmath trainers teach people how they can learn to be in harmony with their heart intelligence to reduce stress and reactivity, and enhance intuition; a mission whose ramifications extend as far as United Nations peace imperatives.
Learn about the remarkable science of heart intelligence and how our hearts far exceed the mere descriptor of a pump.
