  RSVP to Mallory Starr:


The heart is a physical organ as well as a feeling and intuitive center. Our heart rhythm and heart waves establish the central force that affects other rhythms throughout our body and our overall health. Heart waves are much stronger than brain waves and both organs communicate via wave frequencies – regulating and affecting each other.

This workshop will explain how we can learn to be more aware of our heart waves and mentally how we can better control them for our health. We will also discuss psychological ways to effectively coordinate the frequencies of our brain waves with our heart waves to prevent and treat such maladies as anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, and ADHD.

Learning Objectives

1} Give 2 examples concerning the strength and frequencies of heart waves.

2) Explain why harmony between heart and brain waves are essential for health and well-being.                            

3) Discuss the importance of knowing how best to utilize the “drug factories in our heads.”

4) List at least three examples of discomfort and disease caused by the de-synchronization of brain waves and heart waves.
