This month we'll hear from Deborah Rozman, CEO of HeartMath Inc, who will discuss their world renown landmark technology, multi-person heart coherence, and the latest industry trends. Liz Li, Ph.D., president of Sofia University (formally Institute of Transpersonal Psychology) will discuss her plans to develop the first consciousness focused engineering curriculum, and the opening of a new lab devoted to Consciousness Hacking. Frank Heile, PhD, will report on two months of rigorous testing of the Interaxon Muse EEG headset.
HeartMath has also been generous enough to sponsor this month's meetup, including the donation of several devices, and a discount on devices sold at the meeting.
Deborah Rozman, CEO of HeartMath Inc. will talk about the power of Heart Rate Variability coherence feedback to create a shift baseline health and consciousness. She will share what HeartMath’s emWave and Inner Balance technology does and outcomes achieved, and provide industry insight in what’s happening in the rapidly changing mobile health market. Lastly she will talk about HeartMath’s vision and roadmap for group coherence and global coherence to facilitate a shift in global consciousness.
