Elements of the Course Experience
For each weekly class:
- Watch one or more videos by master trainers covering the material you will be discussing in the live class.
- Attend a live one-hour Zoom class with interaction and discussion.
Additional key course elements:
- Develop and deepen your personal practice of the heart-based skill set as you learn to mentor others.
- You can also opt to choose a classmate to practice the week’s lesson over Zoom or on the phone.
- To finalize your certification, take two people of your choice (friends, family, etc.) through the tools and techniques you learned in the course.
- Join monthly (optional) live Q&A sessions.
This course has a dual focus, aimed at helping you enhance your own understanding and application of the HeartMath skill set in your daily life while also developing the skills required to teach, mentor, or coach others in the process of transforming their stressful thoughts and emotions into a more coherent alignment with their higher capacities.
As a HeartMath Certified Mentor, you will be able to provide all or any part of the Building Personal Resilience tools to those you mentor based on their particular needs. Certification allows you to work one-on-one with individuals or small groups (up to 10 people) anywhere in the world.
The mentoring methods you will learn and the topics and skills you will teach incorporate many years of research and best practices developed from working with diverse populations worldwide.

Weekly Course Overview:
Class 1: Overview and Resilience Model: Explore an expanded understanding of resilience. Learn a basic and very effective technique that helps build your resilience and begin to experience the positive impact greater resilience has in making meaningful changes in your daily life.
Class 2: Coherence and the Physiology of Resilience: Discover an important physiological state called “heart coherence,” which underlies resilience. We’ll introduce an effective tool that relates your everyday experience to your physiology and encourages making empowered choices. It also illustrates that relaxation and coherence are not necessarily the same thing. You’ll also learn another coherence technique.
Class 3: Resetting Neural Patterns and Shifting Attitudes: Learn the role of neural patterns and how they are formed. Discover how to reset ingrained, unwanted patterns or habits through a process of entraining heart-brain coherence, replacing them with new, healthier ones. Learn that lasting change starts in the heart.
Class 4: Working with Others: Learn to use the Building Personal Resilience transformational process and how to incorporate it into your work with others. This module also includes best practices and tips for integrating the HeartMath system into your client sessions.
Class 5: Working with Others: Coherence technology provides real-time feedback as you practice the coherence-building techniques. Coherence feedback helps enhance focus and promotes self-regulation while motivating people to establish a consistent practice.
Class 6: Intuition and Heart Intelligence: Experience the heart as a source of intelligence that acts as an inner prompter for moment-to-moment intuitive guidance, making heart intelligence a practical part of daily life. We’ll introduce a technique to activate your heart’s intuitive intelligence.
Class 7: Increasing Resonance and Coherent Communication: Explore the energetics of communication and the fascinating science of how we can affect one another energetically. Discover the undercurrents of inner drama and how that can affect not only our communication but our resilience and everyday fulfillment.
Class 8: Leveraging Heart Intelligence: Review the progress you have made, reinforce positive changes, and focus on the importance of establishing a new baseline for lasting change. We’ll introduce an effective technique to plan your next steps by drawing from all you’ve learned.
Scope of Practice
The “Scope of Practice” for Building Personal Resilience™ (BPR) is defined as working with individuals in a one-on-one mentoring/coaching context in small groups of 10 or less. This includes in-person or online sessions over time; for example, weekly or bi-weekly for 1 to 1.5 hours per session. This program has been intentionally designed for this specific use and does not include using presentation slides or delivering workshops online. For those interested in delivering in-person or online workshops with groups of any size, that “Scope of Practice” requires becoming certified in either the Coherence Advantage™ or Activating the Heart of Teams™ programs.
