As you observe modern life, do you see a tendency to disconnect from our inner lives and from each other? Do you get the sense that life is unnecessarily hurriedand stress-filled? And that conflict is unpleasant and hard to navigate?
Thankfully, there is a new source of hope: The Connection Practice offers an antidote to disconnection for those willing to learn and use it. Not a magic wand, but an easy-to-use, simple-to-learn practice with a demonstrated ability to melt away pain and enrich lives.
The Connection Practice teaches a skill that unites Non-violent communication with Heartmath's science based heart-brain coherence. This synergy maximizes your social and emotional intelligence, builds resilience, and improves the quality of your relationships.
This skill has proven its value in businesses, schools, universities, non-profits, families and faith-based communities.
“If everyone practiced this it would transform our world into a sane one!” — Henry B.

Scientific research shows that violent reactions can occur when we are triggered by emotional memories. The amygdala, the part of the brain that holds emotional memories, can trigger stress, fear or a fight response faster than we can think. Based on past information and situations, it can keep us trapped in negative emotional patterns that can lead to health challenges and violence. The good news is that the Connection Practice not only calms the reactions of the amygdala, but it activates your highest and best intelligence.
Through the Connection Practice, you will learn to:
- Manage and resolve conflicts in a positive and healthy way
- Find release from worry, anger, anxiety and depression, both simply and quickly
- Achieve your highest brain function and engage your intuition
