The heartbeat determines life, and the stronger the heart is, the healthier the individual. This is true for the physical body as well as the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. When one gets hurt or traumatized, the learned response is to put up barriers around the heart as a shield from further harm. In doing so, people limit access to the authentic self and wholeness. Healthy techniques can be learned to reconnect with the heart in order to heal anxiety, depression, and trauma and find renewed meaning and purpose. As one opens up to feeling and releasing old wounds, more joy, love, and freedom to be one's true self emerge. In doing so, the underlying causes of disease are removed, people become healthier, stronger, and happier, and the heart and mind come into balance and harmony.
