Heart-Brain Dynamics

Heart-Brain Dynamics

Presenter: Dr. Rollin McCraty

This presentation covers the scientific background, clinical applications of a new approach to increasing patients capacity to self-regulate that has a wide range of healthcare applications, including blood pressure control, CHF, arrhythmias, cardiac rehabilitation, digestive system disorders, headaches, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy and a wide range of psychological conditions, including anxiety, ADHD, sleeplessness and depression. It provides an overview of how the heart and brain dynamically interact and how the heart synchronizes the neural activity in the brain systems that underlie one’s ability to self-regulate energy expenditures, sustain resilience and perform optimally.

Numerous studies have found heart-focused self-regulation techniques provided an effective means to facilitate a shift in global psycho-physiological functioning, which is marked by a distinct change in the rhythmic activity of heart. This global shift generates a state of optimal functioning, characterized by increased alignment, synchronization, harmony, and efficiency in the interactions within and among the physiological, cognitive, and emotional systems. This state is called psychophysiological coherence. The coherent state reflects increased order in higher-level systems in the brain, increased synchronization between the two branches of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and a general shift in autonomic balance towards increased parasympathetic activity.

Learn how increased coherence can be achieved as people learn to more consistently self-regulate their emotions from a more spiritual, intuitive, and balanced inner reference; and how this state is directly associated with increased intuition, improved health and cognitive functioning. We will discuss how increasing our personal coherence not only results in improved personal health and happiness, but is also reflected in the global field environment.
