Introducing the HeartMath Institute

The Heart's Intuitive Intelligence: A path to personal, social and global coherence

In the early 1990s, a man named Doc Childre, who, after suffering health problems developed a great interest in the heart’s ability to support the body in managing stress, put together a team of scientists, as well as engineers, educators and business executives, to form an organisation now called the HeartMath Institute. Its mission was, and still is, to explore the energetic heart and instruct others on how they can bring their own physical, mental and emotional systems into balanced alignment with their heart’s intuitive guidance.


Over the last thirty years the work of the HeartMath Institute has contributed greatly to the understanding of the heart’s field and included many revolutionary findings, including the reflection of our emotional state in our heart’s rhythms, the influence of the heart on our perceptions and cognitive functioning, and how coherence of the heart’s energy field optimises our physiological state. They have also devised innovative experiments demonstrating how the energetic heart receives intuitive guidance from the field of greater consciousness. It is the dream of the founders of the HeartMath Institute that by exploring and tuning into the intelligence of the heart we can deepen our connections and improve our health on a personal, social and global level.
