'' I help my clients or patients to cut themselves off from stress by practicing heart coherence and compassion ''

A phenomenon occurs when one reaches a state of harmony heart-mind, if only for a few moments. The heart produces a signal of well-being that it sends to the decisional regions of the brain. This induces a positive state that calms fears while increasing cognitive abilities. In a few minutes, the stress hormones are reduced.

As a professional, would you like to know how cardiac coherence and compassion for oneself and for others have proven effective in clinical studies? You would like to understand their mechanisms of action and know how to popularize them to your customers? Would you like to know exactly what parameters you need to respect for these techniques to be effective?

This workshop will give you a thorough understanding of what is happening in the body and brain of your client or patient when practicing heart coherence and meditation. You will be able to help him practice them safely and effectively.
