About HeartMath, Coherence and Deeper Family Connections
+ Show Text - Hide Text
HeartMath has spent the last 30 years researching heart-brain communication and its relationship to managing stress. Our research has shown that the heart rhythm pattern changes according to our emotional state, and is communicated to the brain, the body, and the people around us - influencing our health and well-being. Coherence is a physiological state characterized by a smooth rate of change in the heart rhythm pattern that occurs when we feel replenishing emotions such as care or appreciation. Depleting emotions, like frustration or worry, instate a different, more chaotic, incoherent heart rhythm pattern.
When we learn to slow down our breathing, and shift our emotional state from a depleting emotion towards a replenishing emotion, we bring our body into coherence. This coherent state reduces feelings of stress, builds resilience, and increases access to greater mental clarity and composure. The HeartMath techniques in this program will give you the skills to increase your personal coherence, as well as improve social coherence with your family and your community. This will help to reduce conflict, facilitate more effective communication, and create more connection and harmony with the people in your life.
