Have you experienced periods where you felt stressed and unfocused? Insecure and unlovable? Perhaps a bit lost and overwhelmed?
To anyone going through such struggles — or wants to know how to cope during difficult times — Howard Martin has four words: Start with your heart.
Howard is one of the original leaders of HeartMath Institute, the world’s most influential scientific organization focused on activating the powers of the heart to optimize your emotional, physical and spiritual health and wellbeing.
He is also co-author of the award-winning book, The HeartMath Solution, the definitive work on engaging the power of the heart’s intelligence. Howard has traveled the world for 22 years, giving people the heart-based information and tools they need to transform stressful circumstances and experience greater ease, cognitive functioning and performance.
Through speaking, seminars, publications, training and products, Heartmath has touched the lives of millions of people in hundreds of countries.
We’re offering The HeartMath System program so Howard can introduce you to the dynamic partnership between heart, mind, body and spirit, and share important scientific discoveries, which reveal that your heart operates as an information processing center and communication hub for your body and brain.
Howard will show you how achieving “heart coherence” — a scientifically validated state in which your heart and brain are energetically aligned and cooperating with one another — can increase your capacity to feel positive emotions like love, joy and gratitude and significantly improve every aspect of your life.
When your body, mind and spirit are attuned through heart coherence, you experience a mental and emotional clarity that energizes you on multiple levels.
You become more attentive, creative and laser-focused. You feel balanced and grounded and better-equipped to deal with whatever situations and challenges life presents.
Thanks to discoveries made during decades of scientific research, the HeartMath System’s easy methods take you beyond stress-releasing modalities like meditation, exercise and yoga. Instead, you nip your emotional response to “fight or flight” situations in the bud, neutralizing stress before it can overtake your body and life.
Imagine acquiring the ability to take charge of your emotions and liberate yourself from anxiety and emotional overwhelm. Imagine the positive effects of this “freedom from fear“ mindset on every one of your relationships.
When you learn to live from your heart using this proven system, you reframe what you once perceived as tense interactions with others as opportunities to offer empathy and compassion to people in urgent need of both.
As unconditional love flows from your heart, you inspire and heal others.
How can you develop this capacity?
The HeartMath System is a step-by-step process that integrates leading-edge science and effective techniques that activate your heart’s intelligence for your own and others’ growth and healing.
When you get connected to the deepest part of yourself, you’re revitalized, empowered and even exuberant. You have access to more energy and more insight and live in an enhanced state of flow. You reestablish contact with who you truly are and awaken possibilities for a more purposeful and meaningful life.
Your heart’s intelligence can even rekindle your sense of adventure and increase synchronicity, opening doors to new ways of sharing your unique gifts with the world.
Your heart simply is one of your most powerful tools for growth.
When you learn to live from your heart using this proven system, you reframe what you once perceived as tense interactions with others as opportunities to offer empathy and compassion.
Your heart sends out signals, acting as a miniature radio broadcast tower.
You know how when you walk into a room with someone who is very loving and positive, the world seems to brighten and you feel happier?
That’s because they’re “broadcasting” positive frequencies from the powerful electromagnetic generator in the center of their chest. No wonder loving people are so magnetic and effective. We simply feel better around them.
These effects extend beyond just a few people. Collective moods and emotions have been shown to have a measurable impact on the earth’s geomagnetic field and the ionosphere, which in turn influences our health and social behavior.
As we become more coherent and joyful, it ripples out to the rest of the world.
So when we align our minds, hearts and souls with others who have also reconnected to their true selves, we can perform a larger service not only for ourselves but for people everywhere.
We add much-needed loving energy to the world and contribute to lasting cultural change.
The great news is that you don’t have to learn these techniques alone. You can be guided by a real master in a global community of support.
Howard Martin is a gifted speaker who has conducted keynote presentations and training programs for Fortune 100 companies, government agencies, all four branches of the U.S. military, school systems and ecumenical organizations.
Howard also played a key role in launching the Global Coherence Initiative (GCI), a science-based, co-creative project to unite people in heart-focused care and the intention to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace.
In The HeartMath System, Howard has synthesized decades of scientific research, case studies and experiences of HeartMath students all around the globe to help you navigate through these changing, turbulent times and create a more peaceful and fulfilling life.
During this 7-week program, you’ll:
With scientific rigor, HeartMath has bridged philosophical, romantic and even mystical notions of heart we’ve inherited, to a modern understanding of how the intelligence of your heart measurably affects your health and wellbeing and our world.
You’ll discover practices that make a real difference in your baseline of health, happiness, and emotional wellbeing.
Ultimately, by taking this course, you will experience for yourself the truth of Howard’s words, “A change of heart changes everything.”
Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
Each weekly training session will build powerfully upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete understanding of the practices, tools and principles you need to activate your heart’s intelligence.
Everyone has a central, organizing intelligence can lift us above our problems even in the midst of chaos and confusion. It is called “heart,” and it has been talked about for thousands of years.
In this first module, we will explore the history of “heart”, what heart intelligence is and develop an understanding of the ultimate partnership between heart, mind and body. You will learn about important scientific discoveries showing that the physical heart is an information processing center in the body and you will hear about the communication pathways by which the heart sends essential commands to the brain.
In Module 1, you’ll discover:
The heart’s intelligence provides intuitive guidance for navigating the complexities of life with grace. Yet, anxiousness, overload and sadness, all forms of stress, often block our capacity to receive this essential information.
So what exactly is stress? How does it affect you and how can you reduce it?
In this module, you’ll explore answers to these questions, gain a scientific understanding of coherence — the antidote to stress and the foundation of new awareness — and learn atechnique that will give you access to the heart’s intelligence in the moment.
In Module 2, you’ll discover:
Every day you wake up with a certain amount of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy. How you spend this vital, precious energy has everything to do with our overall quality of life, health, relationships and more.
In this class you will use your heart’s intelligence to see what depletes your energy and what renews it. Learning how to be more energy efficient is an important key to creating the life you were meant to have.
In Module 3, you’ll discover:
The ability to feel many different emotions is a great gift. And yet, you may sometimes feel like a victim of your emotions. Successfully regulating our emotions represents the next frontier in human evolution and the heart’s intelligence offers a way to maximize the gifts our emotions offer.
We’ll explore heart intelligence’s guiding role in emotional choices and learn how to make refined distinctions between Care and Overcare and Empathy and Compassion.
In Module 4, you’ll discover:
Emotional memories shape our perceptions of life and provide context and meaning. However, at times these emotional associations can be limiting, coloring perception and awareness in ways that no longer serve us. In this class you will experience a powerful, heart-based technique for clearing old emotional patterns.
In Module 5, you’ll discover:
Intuition is always available as the heart speaks, sometimes softly and other times with clear direction. Intuition demystified can become a practical, common sense intelligence useful for making decisions big and small. In order to gain access to more of our natural intuitive intelligence we need to sustain a connection to our core power, the heart.
Practicing techniques to increase the time you are in heart coherence is an effective way to increase intuitive access, improve health and wellbeing. In this class you will learn about intuition and practice two key HeartMath techniques.
In Module 6, you’ll discover:
The emergence of heart intelligence is an evolutionary imperative at this time in human history. Changes are happening quickly. The world’s problems are on full display. Concurrently, an expansion of “heart” is taking place. People around the world are shifting perception and beliefs and as a result a new and better world is taking shape.
In this final class, we’ll look at our current and future world through the lens of the heart. We will explore how we can contribute to creating a more heart-connected world and look at the personal, societal and global changes that are possible as more people use the heart’s wisdom to direct their lives.
In Module 7, you’ll discover:
In addition to Howard Martin’s transformative 7-week course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions and materials from HeartMath experts. These bonus sessions will complement the course, deepening your understanding and practices.

Dr. McCraty’s research interests include the physiology of optimal function and emotions, with a focus on the mechanisms by which emotions influence cognitive processes, behavior and health. Findings from this research have been applied to the development of tools and technology to optimize individual and organizational health, performance and quality of life.
Dr. McCraty has acted as Principal Investigator in numerous laboratory research studies examining the effects of emotions on heart/brain interactions and on autonomic, cardiovascular, hormonal and immune system function. He has also served as PI in a number of 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.
In this bonus webinar, Deborah and Jeffrey will talk about the challenges people face on a daily basis during these increasingly stressful and fast-moving times. There is a "state of ease" that each of us can access to help release emotional turbulence and help maintain coherent alignment between our heart, mind and emotions.
Learning to access this "inner-ease" can be done with minimum practice each day. When operating in an ease-mode, you’ll be able to more easily choose less stressful perceptions and attitudes and integrate more "flow" in your daily routine. You will also be able to create deeper connections and more caring interactions with those around you.
In this bonus session, you will learn:

The heart is more than a blood pump. Research shows that your heart can help power and direct your brain. The physical heart contains its own independent nervous system, or “heart-brain,” of approximately 40,000 neurons that can sense, feel, learn and remember. The heart-brain sends information to the big brain about how the body feels.
In this session, learn how the rhythmic patterns of your beating heart can improve your brain functions and help prevent cognitive decline. There are heart-based techniques that enhance the speed of information processes and the coordination of that information, sharpen your memory and enable you to be more creative and discerning.

Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers. You can also use Skype to connect to MaestroConference at no charge, and we offer a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
