The Living & Dying Consciously Project
Health & Wellness
I am the Executive Director of The Living & Dying Consciously Project. Our non-profit organization empowers individuals to build resilience as they navigate the complexities of living with loss, aging and dying. As a shamanic practitioner, I work with private clients and teach workshops to help folks prepare for death as a rite of passage.
How I use the HeartMath System
We incorporate HeartMath techniques in our workshops on Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying. The HeartMath Institutes's research shows how each emotion has its own unique pattern. Positive emotions create coherent heart rhythms. In contrast, negative emotions create chaotic, erratic patterns. The Heart-Focused Breathing™ Technique is an easy-to-use self-regulation strategy designed to reduce the intensity of a stress reaction and to establish a calm, but alert state.
