The heart is doing more than pumping blood, says Howard Martin of HeartMath. The physical heart is an information processing center in our bodies. There exists a complex nerve system in the heart, which communicates directly to the brain. Research shows that brain function is critically dependent on the information from the heart, and their alignment leads to states of personal, interpersonal, and global coherence. Martin brings us up-to-date on the remarkable research HeartMath is doing in this arena. The spirit of humanity is rising to the occasion, he says, and we are ushering in a new and very different world right in the midst of the old one.
Howard Martin is one of the original leaders who helped Doc Childre found HeartMath. He is coauthor of The HeartMath Solution and author of The HeartMath Method.
