2023 Breathwork Summit
Program & Replays
Heart-Focused Breathing Coherence and the Planetary Energetic Field
Rollin McCraty, PhD, director of research at the HeartMath Institute, will discuss how the heart and brain interact in a dynamic relationship that affects many aspects of health, cognition, and emotional experience. The heart coherence state reflects increased order in higher-level brain systems, leading to enhanced decision making and access to intuition. He will also discuss how the heart radiates a measurable magnetic field that can affect other people around you, and how you're connected to the Earth's magnetic fields.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- How to shift self-draining emotional states and attitudes that block heart energy in our interactions with others and within ourselves
- How the “power of pause" can prevent some of our largest stress deficits, especially in these times of rapid change and uncertainty
- A technique for stepping up your vibrations to shift into a more coherent state anytime and anywhere
Rollin McCraty, PhD
Rollin McCraty, PhD, is director of research at the HeartMath Institute. As a psychophysiologist, Rollin’s research interests include the physiology of emotion — with a focus on the mechanisms by which emotions influence cognitive processes, behavior, and health — and the global interconnectivity between people and the Earth’s energetic systems. Findings from this research have been applied to developing tools and technology to optimize individual and organizational health, performance, and quality of life.
Rollin has acted as principal investigator in numerous research studies examining the effects of emotions on heart-brain interactions plus autonomic, cardiovascular, hormonal, and immune system function. He has also served as principal investigator in many field studies to determine the outcomes of positive emotion-focused interventions and heart-rhythm feedback in diverse organizational and educational settings, as well as in various clinical populations.
