Bringing Clarity, Calm and Heart Focus to Life

At Heart Essentia, we offer pathways and workshops that foster the integration of qualities that are essential to increasing heart awareness. Whether supporting you through Heartfulness meditation, or with the HeartMath techniques for empowering heart-based living, or through energetic healing modalities, we are here to nurture your expanding awareness and access to the field of the heart.


Recognizing the heart as a portal to the universe within is part of a journey and discovery process about what it means to be truly authentic and present. Our hearts are where the real treasure awaits.

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.”

When it comes to emotions, our bodies don’t discriminate either physically, emotionally or spiritually. How do we find the calm? HeartMath has developed an evidence-based program with feed-back technology that teaches you how to gain greater awareness and ability to regulate emotions. In essence, increasing our capacity to be resilient. This means improving how we handle stress. Greater resilience is a game changer.

We know that stress affects us

How does it effect us? Research shows that stress affects us on all levels; physically, emotionally and spiritually. What can we do about it? We now know that the quality of our heart-brain coherence is directly related to the quality of emotion we feel in our hearts. When the mind, heart and emotions are aligned and in sync, we call this a coherent state. The HeartMath Institute has developed a simple and effective technique to shift our heart-brain coherence to a more harmonious, more coherent level.
