About this course
We all strive to find that state of creative "flow", when playful attention maximizes our ability to find new ideas, become inspired, and create our best work. By observing network behavior between brain and heart (the archetypal representatives of psyche and soma) we'll learn about how heart rate variability can serve as an objective measure of how "resonant" we are, and how "in tune" we may be with our current circumstances. Better yet, we can bring simple attention to the radial pulse and get useful insight into heart rate variability, and best of all, there are herbs and practices that can help maximize it. You'll leave with the details of heart rate variability, how to assess it using only your hands, and what interventions may help maximize it in yourself or your clients if you are a practitioner.
