The HeartMath Institute 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.
HeartMath Institute 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.
The mission of the HeartMath Institute 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 HeartMath Institute 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 HMI’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.
In the field of education, HMI helps students harness the power of their minds and emotions. HMI’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.
