Have you heard about heart coherence? I’ve been listening to a series of podcasts about Ancient Medicines for Modern Illness in the last week. Hosted by Nick Polizzi from Sacred Science, it’s a fascinating series. What is becoming increasingly clear is that there is profound wisdom in what some call ‘old wives tales’ or ‘witchcraft’. Emerging scientific evidence is now validating the role healing herbs play in health and wellbeing. There is a role for integrative medicine – a working together, hand in hand with alternative approaches and conventional/modern medicine – which, after all, is still very young in comparison to traditions some of which are thousands of years old.
The other thing that keeps coming up, not just in the podcasts, is the wisdom that lies in our heart. The HeartMath Institute is doing a lot of really interesting research not the least of which is about heart coherence.

“Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation. It is a state that builds resiliency – personal energy is accumulated, not wasted, – leaving more energy to manifest intentions and harmonious outcomes.” Dr. Rollin McCraty, HeartMath Institute
