We have the power to use our hearts to transform stress and regain our balance in work and life. For millennia, the heart was revered as a source of courage, wisdom, intuition, love, and power—a source of life, a fountain of love, a wellspring of deep emotion. But then science, reason, and the industrial age decided the heart was not the stuff of poets, mystics, sages, and philosophers after all. It was a merely a pump.
More than 25 years ago, a research organization on the edges of California’s famed Silicon Valley, HeartMath Institute, set out to modernize our understanding of the heart, keeping in mind those age-old truths about the heart. HeartMath Institute began using contemporary medical and scientific analysis to understand the psychophysical connections between the heart, stress, cognitive function, and well-being. Through rigorous research and the development of simple tools, techniques, and technologies, HeartMath has since validated that the heart has its own unique intelligence that assists and influences the intelligence of the mind and brain. The heart also has its own profound electromagnetic and biochemical nature which impacts all systems in the human body.
In this fun, interactive, science-based program you will learn techniques you can immediately apply to increase focus and energy, improve sleep and emotional balance and stability, reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety, and diminish “brain fog” while increasing mental acuity.
This workshop will offer powerful demonstrations of HeartMath technology and cover the following:
- Key research findings around heart intelligence and the dynamic role the heart plays in human physiology, brain function, and aging, including research conducted by HeartMath, Stanford, the Veterans Administration, and the UK’s National Health Service.
- The biophysical connections between emotions, the immune and cardiovascular systems, and neurological function.
- Two techniques to help prevent, reduce, and recover from stress quickly and effectively. The first technique helps to neutralize the damaging biological effects of unmanaged emotion, while clearing the mind. The second begins the process of “circuit building” in order to create the neural circuitry for a more positive satisfying life.

Bruce Cryer, who played The Boy in the NYC production of The Fantasticks for 800 performances, studied voice, dance, and theater at the Oberlin Conservatory and performed in a variety of musical theater, commercial, and film roles in New York in the 70s. He then migrated to the business world of California focusing on health, leadership, stress, and performance. He has taught at Stanford for the past 21 years, while also leading innovative organizations such as HeartMath, where he was CEO for 11 years. A two-year journey of health crises and deep soul choices led him back to the singing, dancing, and the artistic expression that he loves. Also an author and photographer, he has been called a renaissance man for the integration of his artistic and business pursuits. Find him online at www.brucecryer.com.
