Explore Neurocardiology through Meditation

A fascinating and relatively new branch of science, neurocardiology, recognizes that the heart is comprised of more neural cells (like those of the brain) than muscle cells! The connection between the brain and the heart is closer than we think, and yet they often seem to operate at odds with each other ("My mind is telling me to do this, but my heart says that ..."). Come for a class that will include a short introduction that includes philosophy, science and practical techniques that we will then use in a simple, easy meditation designed to create more clarity in the mind and more harmony between the brain, heart and body. No previous experience required - just an open mind!

    Excellent. The lady who led the discussion was engaging, there was a good balance between intellectual info, and meditative practice, and it seems like it will be a good meditation.

    To those of you who didn't receive notes from the meetup, please either send me an email with your physical address (Savitri, who is the author of the notes, prefers that they not be emailed) and I will mail you a copy. Or, if you prefer, please feel free to stop by the studio and ask for a copy as we are now restocked (please tell the front desk you were in the class when we ran out). I feel they are life-changingly helpful, so please make sure you get your copy!!

      It's possible I may do it again down the line as a great group turned out and it was very well received - thank you for asking! In the mean time, I sent you some more info via email.

    I am so looking forward to have all of you at tonight's event! It will be fantastic, potentially life-changing information so I hope all of you who RSVP'd can make it!

    For those who want to explore more on the relationship between the brain and the heart, I highly recommend "The Polyvagal Theory" by Dr. Stephen Porges. The more phylogenetically recent branch of the vagus nerve is essentially a "social circuit" found in mammals that influences (slows) heart rate during social stimuli, assuming those stimuli are perceived as safe by the organism.

      Thank you for the recommendation, Nick!
