World Creativity Summit
HeartMath Technology Training
I am an entrepreneur, coach, and speaker. I have launched many businesses including a restaurant, a comic book store, and more than 20 large pop culture events. For all my achievements, my friends still joke about how easily I fall in and out of love with new ideas and new ventures. I have accomplished so much in part to overcome the stigma of being a “dreamer.”
I study Positive Psychology and Neuroscience as it relates to wellbeing, and it all came together for me once I discovered flow science.
I have been drawn to flow states without knowing it directly. I started practicing Yoga 20 years ago and added a regular meditation practice in the last six years. I enjoy heart-centered meditation, Mindfulness, and Transcendental Meditation. My most frequent go-to is heart-centered meditation as taught by HeartMath because it is the most effective for me at quieting my mind long enough to get it going again without all the noise.
My research has led me to understand that coherent heart rate variability is a flow state that arises out of heart-centered meditation and stimulates the release of hormones like acetylcholine which activates memories, lateral thinking, and creativity.
I have experienced the most happiness when I have triggered a state of flow. Getting into flow makes it easier for me to carry out big ideas and creative pursuits which are core to my identity. Meditation is now a big part of my life that enables my personal growth and success.
How I use the HeartMath System
I use the HeartMath System to add heart to my life and to those around me. I grew up thinking the heart was vulnerable and weak compared to the mind, but now I experience my coherent heart empowering me to explore new heights and depths of living and working that my mind never knew existed.
