>Many people would probably agree that a quickening is taking place in
>our world. The speed of change is accelerating creating both chaos and
>coherence. Polarization in values, politics, policy and world views have
>become increasingly obvious. Many problems ranging from economic
>inequities to environmental concerns seem to be reaching a tipping point
>while simultaneously a new intelligence appears to be in a pivotal
>In our more reflective moments this quickening often evokes important
>questions. How do we fully participate in this transformation, make
>meaningful contributions and ride this wave of change with poise and
>grace? For me the answers lie not in the mind alone but rather are found
>in the core of our hearts.
>This can sound comfortably philosophical but from the HeartMath
>perspective we take it quite literally. To us its businessthe business
>of becoming energetic engineers capable of actualizing and applying a new,
>intuitive band-width. Our research and the research of others have
>confirmed that the heart is not just a muscle. Its also a sensory organ
>and a sophisticated information processing center. The heart actually has
>its own nervous system which gives it the ability to sense, learn,
>remember and make functional decisions independent of the brain. In fact
>the heart sends powerful messages to the brain and the rest of the body in
>four different waysneurologically, bio-physically, hormonally and
>energetically. These messages are more than biological; they give us an
>The intuitive intelligence of the heart allows us to perceive differently.
>We become more aware of thoughts, moods and reactions and perceive new
>options in how to respond to situations in the moment. Life seems less
>stressful. Your problems don't magically go away, but they don't have as
>much impact on you. Your thought patterns and inner dialog become more
>allowing, hopeful and open ended. Life doesn't feel so boxed in and
>limited. You become more creative and can more easily find solutions to
>challenges. It's not that there are fewer obstacles, but that you develop
>more adaptability and resiliency. Things get simpler.
>Most importantly it helps you get on to yourself and see where the
>energetic blocks to growth reside. Armed with the hearts intelligence you
>have a greater ability to finalize much of the important but unfinished
>work on yourself. Once this work is done you become capable of
>understanding and contributing to the world even more effectively and
>dynamically. Through the power of the heart we can take our next steps in

>Well explore all of this and a lot more at The Great Re-thinking
>Conference in Bath. Ill use advanced technology to demonstrate real-time
>heart/brain communication. Well take a look at a key application of the

>the expression of spirit and Ill offer heart-centric approaches to
>achieving your next level of personal fulfillment. I promise above all to
>make it fun. Hope to see you there.
>"Doc Childre (founder of the HeartMath Institute) realized that the heart
>doesnt exert its uplifting influence on body, mind, and spirit entirely
>on autopilot: Its helped by conscious intention. He and his researchers
>discovered that, just as imaging holding your hands in front of a campfire
>causes your palms to measurably heat up, so creating a mental image of the
>heart glowing with warmth produces a distinct physiological effectin this
>case, one that seems to correlate with feelings of calm and
>lovingkindness. Simply giving the heart your full attention, that is,
>seems to produce physiological patterns that correlate with compassion
>itself. HeartMath researchers have noted that these coherent patterns of
>heart-rate variability are associated with positive effects on autonomic
>nervous system balance, cardiovascular efficiency, and reduced secretion
>of the stress hormone cortisol. Other tests have revealed that coherent
>HRV patterns produce greater increases in cognitive functioning than even
>the relaxation response, giving the expression putting your heart into
>it new scientific heft. (The implications for human performance have not
>been lost on the corporate world: Hewlett Packard, Shell, Sony, Boeing,
>and GlaxoSmithKline are using HeartMath training for stress management and
>enhanced productivity. A federal pilot grant is funding HeartMath in nine
>school districts, based on preliminary findings that it increases
>standardized test scores.)"
