Calm Mind – Relaxed Body – Open Heart
Emotional well-being is the cornerstone of a healthy, happy, meaningful life.  Without this crucial ingredient, contentment and satisfaction remain elusive dreams.  Emotional fluency is the secret to being joyful, compassionate, patient, and kind – despite the ups and downs of everyday life.  Moreover, emotional health correlates with physical wellness and strong immune systems.  On every level, emotions shape daily living and quality of life.

Everyone wants to be happy and free of suffering.  Yet most of us lack the tools for managing feelings such as frustration, impatience, anxiety, disappointment, depression, and overwhelm.  Many of us live at the mercy of our moods, looking for relief outside ourselves by chasing after fleeting pleasures.  Stuck in this cycle, we continue to experience more suffering.  Yet there is a way out and freedom is possible for everyone.

What would it be like to feel in charge of your own happiness?  To be able to face challenges with equanimity and strength?  To cultivate a life you love based on joy, empathy, and lovingkindness?

HeartMind gives you the skills to make this a reality.  Based on a unique combination of neuroscience, body psychology, and meditative practices, HeartMind offers you a path to being free of emotional servitude.  Discover your innate well-being of body, mind, and heart.  Get out of your busy mind and into your HeartMind.
