We are launching our first meetup group for people who feel the pull to connect with their own heart and the hearts of others, to live life more fully from the heart and to create a more heart-based world.
By coming together as a community our intention is to practice simple heart-focused techniques which will improve our personal health and happiness, help us to connect with the hearts of others and to play our part in raising social and global consciousness with the aim of creating greater fairness, understanding and peace between peoples and nations.
What will happen during the meetup?
The meetup will include practising various simple heart-focused techniques, similar to meditations.
Specifically, we will place our attention in our hearts, on our breath and on creating and sustaining positive and elevated heart-based feelings like care, appreciation, gratitude, compassion and joy. We will then spend time direct these feelings to ourselves, towards our fellow group members, towards a particular individual, group or situation and then out into the world.
The techniques we will practise create individual and group “coherence”. Coherence is a real, measurable state characterised by increased order and harmony in our physiological (bodily) and psychological (mental) processes. It is an optimal state for individual health and for building deeper connections with others.
During the sessions, you will have the opportunity to practise using coherence biofeedback technology if you wish. This technology provides you with biofeedback on your heart rhythms (Heart Rate Variability) and can be used to measure both your individual and the group’s coherence.
The technique practise will last approximately 60 minutes. For the final 30 minutes we will hold a “Sharing Circle” within which anyone is free to share anything they wish, while the other group members sustain their coherence to listen deeply and stay connected with their hearts.
We Add Heart is a collaboration between a number of organisations involved in heart-based living, personal development and raising consciousness. HeartMath® facilitates the running, administration and expansion of the community of groups and provides some of the techniques and the coherence app and biofeedback technologies.
If you would like to add more heart to your life, and this meetup resonates with you, then please join us in our mission to create personal, social and global well-being.
