Institute of HeartMath

About IHM

The Institute of HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to helping people of all ages reduce stress, self-regulate emotions and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with their minds at home, school, work and play.

Institute of HeartMath Research Center is a recognized global leader in emotional physiology, optimal function, resilience and stress-management research. The center conducts basic research into psychophysiology, neurocardiology and biophysics, and outcome studies in clinical, workplace, educational and military settings, frequently in collaboration with universities, research centers and health-care-system partners. This research has significantly advanced understanding of heart-brain interactions, heart-rate variability (HRV) and heart-rhythm coherence, and the physiology of optimal learning and performance.

Mission

The mission of the Institute of HeartMath is to help establish heart-based living and global coherence by inspiring people to connect with the intelligence and guidance of their own hearts.

The Institute of HeartMath cherishes the community of all people and is committed to nurturing it, strengthening it and always finding new ways of giving back. Giving back through IHM’s Caring Initiatives creates hope of a better future for a child struggling in school, a soldier seeking to return to society or those who are in ill health, coping with loss or facing other challenges.

Membership with the Institute of HeartMath has many free benefits beyond supporting an organization dedicated to improving people’s lives and creating planetary peace, harmony and coherence. Become a member and explore the possibilities of personal, social and global coherence. Join Now.

In the field of education, IHM helps students harness the power of their minds and emotions. IHM’s programs, practices, tools and technologies are helping tens of thousands of students build emotional flexibility and resilience, which promotes improved learner readiness, relationships, academic performance, classroom climate and more.

The Global Coherence Initiative

The mission and vision of the scientifically based Global Coherence Initiative is to unite millions of people, whatever their belief systems or cultures, to shift global consciousness from instability and chaos to balance and cooperation. This can be accomplished by increasing the potency of people’s positive heart-directed intentions and by deploying a Global Coherence Monitoring System (GCMS) to scientifically measure the effects.

A key component of Global Coherence Initiative is the Global Coherence Monitoring System, developed in partnership with internationally renowned astrophysicist and nuclear scientist Elizabeth Rauscher and Institute of HeartMath researchers. In effect, the GCMS will be measuring the “brain waves and heart rhythm” of the planet in real time. It will explore whether the earth’s magnetic field is influenced by collective human emotional resonance resulting from heart-directed intention, or in response to major events, and whether the emotional energy generated by the collective intuition about major future events is measurable in this field.

Research has shown that 0.1Hz is the human resonant frequency—the frequency at which spirit, heart, mind, emotions, and body are in resonant alignment with the planet. The term for this is heart coherence. The more heart coherent we are, the greater the resonant energetic connection we have with people, within ourselves, and with nature. This enhances individual and collective intuitive discernment for solving social, environmental and global problems.
