INTRODUCTION to HEART RHYTHM MEDITATION

Course Description
This course provides an introduction to the principles and practice of Heart Rhythm Meditation (HRM).  HRM is a powerful method of inner reflection which involves a deep, full breath and a focus on the heart. We see the heart as both a physical organ, which pumps blood throughout the body, as well as a spiritual faculty, the center of all love and all feeling. HRM builds the health of the heart on three levels: physical, emotional, and spiritual. HRM has been shown to produce a state of dynamic harmony between the pulse, brain-waves, and endocrine system, resulting in increased anti-stress hormones and a more rhythmic heartbeat.

What Students Say
HRM has in many ways been a life saver for me. In my times of strife and marital discord it is an anchor that supports and sustains me. My practice is not perfect, yet I feel that I have made enormous progress in my attention towards my heart and my inner self. PK

I’m still doing my diet (I have lost over 20 lb. in less than 2 months) but I am doing it with more love toward myself. I don’t 'beat' myself to follow the regime, I do it because I love myself. I love being in my body because there is a jewel inside that I wasn’t aware of: my heart. JJ
