Add Heart to Leadership

What does it mean to be a leader with heart? Heart-centered leadership means to lead others with authenticity, transparency, and humility.

Our leadership reflects who we are inside and needs to include the heart’s intelligence in order to successfully support, guide, and encourage others. 

In today’s world, we are all having to learn and adapt continuously. As leaders, we need to care for individuals and respond in new ways to the changes and emotional challenges people are experiencing with more presence, flow, flexibility, and connection.

Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., our Add Heart® Podcast host, and her guest Marilyn Tam discuss why, in our present environment, the heart needs to be part of a leadership role—whether we’re leading a company, a team or group, or a community. Marilyn Tam, former president of Reebok/CCM, former CEO of Aveda Corp. and voted one of the Top 100 Leadership Speakers in the world by Inc. Magazine, discusses with Deborah the vital importance of adding heart to leadership. 

Our world has changed, and people are far more inclined to do business with companies that, first and foremost, do good for their own people, their customers, clients, vendors, and the world. Deborah and Marilyn talk about why caring for people first needs to be a priority in all roles of leadership. 

Anyone can be a heart-centered leader if they have the commitment to practice heart-based principles. Hear about some of the practical and evidence-based ways organizations are creating collaborative and innovative work environments that support and encourage coherent teams.

Deborah closes the discussion with a heart-focused meditation that we can each practice to lift our personal commitment to lead from the heart.

Add Heart to Peace

Creating peace starts with living “heart first.”

Humanity is in a period of profound change. Though this transformation period can be challenging, we must not lose sight of that which connects us as one human family. 

In a word, what connects us is heart.

In this episode, we are talking about adding heart to peace and why peace is a product of heart-directed living.

Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., our Add Heart® Podcast host, and her guest, sociologist, researcher, and acclaimed author Kingsley L. Dennis, Ph.D., discuss what it means to put the heart first and why it is the foundation for experiencing inner peace—and ultimately creating world peace. 

Peace is a choice we can make each day by practicing heart-based qualities, such as love, care, compassion, kindness, and forgiveness.

As we witness climate disruption, resource depletion, financial inequities, international conflicts, and pandemic restrictions, it can be difficult to not feel frustrated, angry, judgmental, or have blame towards others, all of which feed separation and compromise our peace. The healing of separation is essential for inner and outer peace—and many people are feeling that life is shaking us awake to this requirement.

Our host and guest, Deborah and Kingsley, will discuss how peace is first an inside job that starts with the heart. They will talk about an increasing collective heart opening on the planet that will help dissipate separation and conflict between people and nations and draw hopeful solutions for the many challenges humanity is experiencing.

We’ll close this episode with a heart meditation to energize putting the heart first in our lives to increase our inner peace and to give peace a chance in how we interact with each other.

More about our guest:

Kingsley L. Dennis, Ph.D., is a sociologist and researcher. He is the co-founder of WorldShift International and co-author of the study New Media for a New Future: The Emerging Digital Landscape for a Planetary Societyproduced as part of the Fuji Declaration for The Goi Peace Foundation in collaboration with the renowned global think tank Club of Budapest.

What It Means to Add Heart and Why It’s Important

What does it mean to “Add Heart”? Why is it even more important now?

Internal pressure has built up due to the pandemic restrictions, and with so much change and instability happening, we wonder: will there ever be a new normal?

How can adding heart help? Humanity is at an important junction. Adding heart means to show up each day with the intention to engage with life and with others from the core values of our heart.

Research has shown that activating attributes of the heart, such as compassion, kindness, care, generosity, and patience, can help our immune system, our mental clarity, and our decision-making.

A quote often attributed to Albert Einstein is, “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”

The feelings and qualities of the heart lift our perceptions and thinking and help us find new solutions needed personally and as a society.

Our Add Heart® Podcast host Deborah Rozman, President of HeartMath, and Howard Martin, Executive Vice President, talk about why adding heart is important right now for creating our new normal.

Deborah and Howard provide practical examples of how people are adding heart to everyday situations and the benefits they are experiencing. They share an effective technique to add heart as a way to prepare yourself for each day and how this can uplift and add to your mental and emotional wellbeing―as well as help others.

Connecting with our heart, we can learn to rise above a lot of stress and discover new opportunities for positive change within ourselves.

Deborah and Howard close with a heart meditation to energize our intention to add more heart to our lives, to situations that need energetic support, and to our environment.

Add Heart to Summer Play

After over a year of restrictions due to the global pandemic, many of us are excitedly looking forward to taking some time to get outside, relax, recharge, and connect with the playful part of ourselves this summer. There are many regenerative benefits available to us through getting outside to spend time in nature or to play that are essential to balancing our overall well-being.

With the Summer Olympics almost here, it’s a great time to talk about how to add heart energy to get the most out of outdoor play or exercise—whether through walking, swimming, golfing, biking, tennis, or playing with the kids or grandkids.

Our Add Heart® Call host Deborah Rozman, HeartMath® President and CEO, and her guest Peter Fox, founding executive producer of ESPN and Senior Content Editor for SportsEdTV, will talk about how adding heart to sports or play increases the benefits and the fun.

Peter will share how he trains people from elite athletes to couch potatoes to use HeartMath coherence techniques, and he’ll provide tips that listeners can use right away. Peter will also share how professional athletes and teams are improving their skills using Heart-Focused Breathing™ and Quick Coherence® techniques.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to build a reservoir of heart energy we can each draw on to add heart to our exercise program and play over the next month.

Add Heart to Increase Patience with Our Self and Others

Patience isn’t just a virtue—it’s a necessity, especially during times of change and uncertainty. Patience is a powerful heart quality for maintaining mental and emotional well-being. It supports our ability to manage our energies with more ease and balance. When we act with impatience, our mind tries to rush energy or force outcomes, canceling the experience of flow and creating glitches in our intentions.

Many of us are impatient to find a new sense of normal, yet “normal” is constantly challenged by unpredictable events. Patience is the art of intelligent waiting. Traffic jams, slow computers, and difficult people won’t disappear as we practice patience. However, patience helps to attune our mental and emotional nature to the most reasonable and effective way for responding to each situation that life presents. The practice of patience enables us to quietly sense our heart’s intuitive directions to guide us in making more effective choices.

We invite you to join our Add Heart Call host Deborah Rozman, HeartMath President and CEO, and her guest Charlene Johnson, Nurse Manager of Perinatal Services at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento, as they talk about why, in today’s uncertain energetic environment, it’s prime time to increase our patience baseline and make it an essential part of our new norm. Charlene sees patience as a key component of resilience. She will share why patience has been an important quality for her and the people she serves, especially throughout the past year of the pandemic.

Deborah will share an exercise we can all use to replace impatience with patience and how, as we replace impatience with inner ease and patience, our responses will play out with more balance, resilience, and clearer discernment.

We will close with a heart-focused meditation to add heart to our intention to practice a deeper patience with ourselves and with others over the next month and create a reservoir of heart energy we can each tap into whenever we need a patience booster.

More About Our Guest:
Charlene Johnson has been with Kaiser Permanente for 20 years. She is passionate about assisting the health care professional in transforming themselves so that they can transform the systems in which they work. She loves to inspire others to discover their purpose and increase their personal effectiveness. As the Nurse Manager of Perinatal Services at Kaiser, she oversees Labor and Delivery, Postpartum, and the Special Care Nursery.

Soften the Energetic Environment

Many philosophers and sages have spoken about the paradox of how what is soft can be strong. Think about water: It is fluid, soft, and yielding, and yet it has the power to overcome anything in its path, even that which appears rigid and hard.

Tapping into higher heart qualities that embody both strength and softness allow us to rise up and meet each situation with kindness, care, love, compassion, and more clarity.

Our Add Heart® Call host, Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., HeartMath® President and CEO, along with her guest Owen Ward, HeartMath Chief Strategy Officer, will talk about a “softener energetic” and how we can access it to help us find more flexibility and ease through whatever life presents.

Many people find while walking on the beach or in the woods or looking at flowers that they are softening the energetic field within themselves, and then many things start to become clear. They access more effective discernment for their next steps.

Deborah and Owen will also talk about what it means to soften the energetic environment within and around us—making it easier for others to access their hearts and experience increased clarity and discernment and a deeper connection.

As a business executive and parent of two young boys, Owen will share how adding a softener energy helped him better handle business complexities. In addition, through the COVID-19 restriction period of the past year, like millions of other parents, Owen had to balance work with children at home as well as their homeschooling. He’ll share how the softener energy helped him and his family during times of frustration and anxiety.

Deborah will share how broadcasting or radiating love is one of quickest ways to soften the energetic environment to improve relationships, reduce mechanical reactions and habits, and have more ease when dealing with health and other personal issues. She will also share how adding a softener helps her and others release themselves from the planetary stress and anxiety waves that many people feel when chaotic events occur around the planet.

We will close with a heart-focused meditation to add heart to softening our personal energetic environment and the global energetic field environment. We will also build a reservoir of soft heart energy we can each access as needed during the next month.

Add Heart to Our Planet Earth

How Deepening Our Relationship with Each Other Can Help Heal Earth with special guest, Jude Currivan, Ph.D., co-founder of WholeWorld-View

Earth Day is April 22. It’s a special day to honor and appreciate our beautiful planet. Scientific research has confirmed what most of us feel—that we are deeply interconnected with nature and the Earth. Our heart and brain rhythms are influenced by Earth’s rhythms and magnetic fields.

Our Add Heart Call host, Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., HeartMath Inc. President, and her guest, Jude Currivan, Ph.D., co-founder of WholeWorld-View and author of the upcoming book Gaia: Her-Story, will talk about why healing our human relationships and loving each other are essential to healing our relationship with the Earth.

Earth is constantly giving to us. So how do we reciprocate the energetic care and support we receive from Mother Earth? When we love and care for someone, we celebrate their well-being and are grateful for their gifts.

The theme of Earth Day this year is Restore our Earth. Jude and Deborah will talk about how, as we honor our heart connection with Planet Earth, we facilitate humanity in creating a new story. They will share how the practice of intentionally adding heart-coherent energy to the Earth’s energetic fields not only helps us as individuals but uplifts all living beings and the Earth herself. Loving Earth and all her creatures contributes to creating a better world where the power of love can help to energetically heal our human relationships as well.

We will close with a heart-focused meditation to energize our personal commitment to adding more heart and gratitude to our beautiful Planet Earth and to healing all our relationships.

The Movement of Heart Awakening

The heart – it makes us better at every level individually and collectively.

While separation, conflict, mistrust, and misunderstanding continue to create chaos within societies and between nations, there’s a stronger force emerging with an even greater momentum – that force is the heart and it’s awakening in millions of people around the world.

Increasing numbers of people are experiencing their heart’s stirring and reaching out. For some it’s a quiet pull or nudge to connect and participate, while for others it’s a powerful need to step up and act in ways that facilitate togetherness and meaningful heart-felt connection.

Our Add Heart Call host, Deborah Rozman, HeartMath CEO and President, will be joined by Gavin Andrews, Managing Director of HeartMath in the UK and Ireland to talk about a growing heart-directed movement that’s currently happening throughout the world. It’s happening with people who want to connect more with their own heart and with the hearts of others. This is what inspired Gavin to start the “WeAddHeart” initiative, an international momentum of small groups coming together, online, to experience simple but powerful heart-focused meditations and practices. These practices are improving personal health and happiness, while helping participants feel they are energetically playing a part in raising social and global consciousness with the aim of creating greater fairness, understanding and peace between peoples and nations.

Deborah and Gavin will discuss their observations of the momentum of heart awakening and how why people’s hearts are saying now is the time to bring our lofty, idealistic dreams of peace and equality down to earth and into reality. People are realizing they have to take a heart stand to do this for themselves, their country and the planet.

An outcome of the global pandemic is the recognition that although physically separated we can still come together in the heart online and make a difference with initiatives like WeAddHeart, which provide a platform for accelerated heart awakening and connection.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to energize this growing heart awakening and our personal role in this momentum through our deeper care and connection.

Care and Connection
Reducing separation, divisiveness and fear through the power of the heart

From one perspective it may seem as though the human race is more divided than ever. 2020 was a year of events that amplified racial and political separation. And the global pandemic forced much of the world’s population into physical separation, creating divisiveness and fear. These and other global challenges are awakening many more people to the realization that we finally have to cooperate and care more to find solutions.

A desire for more caring and cooperative interaction is increasing all over the planet. Deeper compassion, care, kindness and cooperation are powerful energies of love that connect us to each other. Broadcasting or radiating these transformational heart energies into the field of consciousness helps to accelerate the cooperation and unity needed to find solutions.

Our understanding of the intelligence and effectiveness of the power of the heart is in its early stages—yet it’s on the rise due to increasing stress and a desperate need for solutions that the mind cannot deliver without the heart.

During this month’s Add Heart Call, our host Deborah Rozman, HeartMath President and CEO, and her guest Claudia Welss, Chairman of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, will talk about the global movement toward deeper care and connection.

They will share ways we can each broadcast or radiate love into the energetic field environment to create more care and connection in our personal lives and help the planet at the same time.

You’ll also hear about a growing global initiative that is empowering people to connect with their hearts and the hearts of others—to live more fully from the heart and to add more heart to the world.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to add heart to deeper care and connection and to our personal commitments for greater compassion and love.

Help Raise the Planetary Vibration

Most of us have experienced being near someone whose energetic vibration or presence helped us feel more comfortable and at ease. Now, research is helping to explain how our vibrational energies, especially our moods and emotions affect others, as well as this discovery’s implications for humanity.

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, when virtual meetings and physical distancing are expressions of care, new research is indicating how we can energetically support and lift each other’s vibrations and the planetary vibration even though we are apart.

Join Deborah Rozman and her guest, HeartMath Institute Director of Research Rollin McCraty, PhD, who will discuss exciting research findings on how heart-to-heart synchronization can occur between people located miles apart and without phone or online contact. They will also discuss new findings on how our heart’s rhythms can synchronize with the resonant frequencies in the Earth’s magnetic fields. One implication of this interconnectivity research is that synchronized heart energy can potentially help raise the planetary vibration and lift human consciousness.

Rollin McCraty will also talk about how collective heart-focused intention (such as what we may help create in these Add Heart Calls) might foster a reservoir of coherent heart energy that can redirect planetary consciousness toward harmonious solutions.

We will close with a heart-focused meditation to energize our intentions to add more heart to increase our personal and social coherence, and help raise the planetary vibration.

Uplift Your Spirit

As we look back on 2020 and prepare for 2021, we know that our world is different now and changing in unpredictable ways. This is leaving many people feeling anxious, depressed or fearful of the future. At the same time, more people are realizing the importance of connecting with the attributes of their heart and its intuitive guidance for uplifting their spirit and bringing new perspectives for effective choices.

In our Add Heart Call, our host Deborah Rozman and her guests, HeartMath LLC Executive Vice President Howard Martin and Chief Strategy Officer Owen Ward, will share how they and the HeartMath team used the power and intelligence of their hearts to uplift their spirit as they navigated the often tumultuous ups and downs of this past year.

Howard, Owen and Deborah will describe how using tools like the power of neutral, higher dignity and wholeness-inclusive care along with their heart’s intuitive guidance created what we call “turn-arounds.” This uplifted their perceptions, prevented much energy loss and magnetized new opportunities.

Learning how to uplift your spirit and draw in new perceptions, ideas and solutions in the face of challenges is a powerful skill that we each can practice as we begin 2021.

We’ll close with a heart focused meditation to energize our heart-powered intentions to create new opportunities for a new year.

Appreciative Inquiry

The holidays are approaching and people are rethinking how to celebrate, given the pandemic and increasing stress levels. One powerful and effective way we can support our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being is to practice sincere appreciation for the good things in our lives that we value. Appreciation has two meanings: a feeling or expression of admiration, approval or gratitude; and to increase in value.

This month, our Add Heart Call host and HeartMath President, Deborah Rozman, will talk about appreciation as a powerful core heart quality that can quickly uplift us and those we care about. Deborah’s guest, Jon Berghoff, will share a process called Appreciative Inquiry that we can use during virtual or in-person holiday gatherings as well as at other times, in any conversation that allows for wisdom, intelligence and strength to be unlocked together.

Jon is the founder of the XCHANGE Approach, a scientific approach to unlocking collective wisdom in any group. Appreciative Inquiry is a process for searching for the best of what was, is or could be within any individual, family, group or organization. It means noticing aspects of experience in ways that bring more value to conversations and bring out the best of what’s available within each of us.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to energize our intentions to add more heart to our own appreciation and reap the benefits during the next month.

A little more about our guest:
Jon is the founder of the XCHANGE Approach, a scientific approach to unlocking collective wisdom in any group. These are extraordinary times calling for exponential conversations. This is why innovative leaders have come to XCHANGE as the solution for bringing together companies, communities and customers in powerful ways, including a method called Appreciative Inquiry. Jon studied under David L. Cooperrider, who created the Appreciative Inquiry approach at the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University.

The Power of Neutral

There’s so much happening in our world on many different fronts. Current events and issues are exposing divisiveness, polarized perceptions, truths and non-truths. It’s all swirling around like energetic cyclones wreak havoc on our emotional and mental resilience.

Many people are recognizing the way to find greater discernment and more ease through these times is by committing to the daily renewal of heart qualities – increasing our care and kindness, extending more compassion and understanding, and deepening our connection with our own heart and with others.

In this Add Heart Call, our host, HeartMath LLC President Deborah Rozman. and our special guest, HeartMath Certified Trainer Sandy Travis, will share one more heart quality that’s important to practice during unpredictable times: using the power of the heart to access a state called “Neutral” to maintain an active calm that builds our resilience capacity.

Stress accumulates and depletes our resilience. When we’re low on resilience, we are more susceptible to adding drama to issues we don’t like or agree with. This creates an energy drain, compromising our mental/emotional balance and health.

Learning how we can employ the power of neutral for more discernment is key to handling today’s challenging and polarizing times with more ease and inner balance. Neutral helps to free us from biases and “knowing what we know” to bring in more objective clarity. It enables us to better discern facts from emotionally fueled misinformation. Resting in neutral in the heart opens the door to seeing new possibilities.

Deborah Rozman will share how the power of “Neutral” has been invaluable throughout her nearly 2-month evacuation experience as a result of recent California wildfires. She’ll talk about how during a crisis, using the power of neutral enabled her and others at HeartMath to more effectively sort incoming data and information as the situation unfolded.

Sandy Travis is a seasoned international HeartMath coach and trainer that works with diverse corporate environments and international organizations. She has presented numerous opportunities that validated for her how practicing Neutral brings more objectivity and clarity and builds heart power and resilience.

We’ll close with a heart focused meditation to energize our intentions to add more heart to our practice of Neutral over the next month of political and global changes and to areas of our personal life where practicing Neutral could give us more objectivity and less energy drain.

More About Sandy Travis:

Sandy’s career spanned the globe with international clients such as the African Development Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Sri Lankan Business Development Center, projects for the United States Agency for International Development, and clients in South Africa and England. Using her expertise in negotiation, creativity and working with high-performance teams, she has served clients in the forest products, aluminum, aerospace, tourism and banking industries. She is a HeartMath Certified Trainer and has been practicing HeartMath® coherence building techniques for over a decade. She has now made HeartMath tools and technology her primary focus for her coaching and consulting with individuals, teams and organizations.

Helping Children Manage Pandemic Stress and Anxiety

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused many unexpected changes for all of us, including our children. The experiences of sheltering in place, isolation, virtual learning and ongoing uncertainty have created anxiety for children and parents alike. In addition, the typical summer activities our kids look forward to all year were significantly altered due to pandemic-related shutdowns and community mandates.

As the school year opens in its various forms, parents and children of all ages continue to experience anxiety and depression that need heart support.

Our Add Heart Call guest, Dr. Jorina Elbers, MD, is a neurologist who specializes in pediatric neurology. Formerly an assistant professor at Stanford’s Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Jorina is the director of the Trauma Recovery Project at the HeartMath Institute, helping to develop a trauma recovery program. Jorina is also the mother of 2 young boys and is struggling with homeschooling and virtual learning for her children, just as so many parents are during the pandemic.

Jorina and our host Deborah Rozman, PhD, who is the HeartMath CEO and a behavioral psychologist, will discuss how parents can find balance during these times and can recognize signs of distress in their children, as children are especially sensitive to what their parents and caregivers are feeling. They’ll also offer suggestions on how to help children when they’re feeling stressed, anxious or sad.

We’ll close the Add Heart Call with a heart-focused meditation to add heart to children and families, helping create an energetic heart environment of love, security and stability to help people navigate these times with more ease and balance.

What’s Making a Difference in Communities

Many people are feeling a heart prompting to make a difference in their communities – and ultimately the world. We want to contribute to a sustainable shift that reflects the true values of heart-based living.

We’re grateful to have James Miles, PhD, an expert in community engagement working to heal and empower African American communities, as our Add Heart Call guest. James and Deborah Rozman, our Add Heart Call host and HeartMath CEO, will be discussing what’s working and already making a difference in communities that need to heal and overcome separations and inequalities.

James has found real change requires a change of heart, not just a change of regulations and topical adjustments. He will share inspiring stories from his work with inner city youth and adults.

At first, a change of heart may sound a bit soft or even impossible, yet James has found that integrating tools and methods to access the heart’s intelligence facilitates sustainable change. James and Deborah will talk about the heart and its intelligence as necessary street smarts for all community environments that want to thrive.

Ultimately, for people of different races, religions, and beliefs to finally move beyond historical separations, the heart will provide the needed guidance and intelligence for all people to harmoniously interact with each other and co-create new solutions.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation that can help each of us identify how we can show up within our own communities and contribute to making a sustainable difference.

More About James Miles:

Adding Heart to Help Heal Communities

During this unprecedented and challenging time, it’s become more important than ever to Add Heart, to help ease the separations and promote healing.

More people are feeling that it’s both essential and highly possible to co-create a world in which treating each other with more kindness, compassion and respect is common sense.

Michael Nila, this month’s Add Heart Call guest, will share his experience and what he thinks it will take for communities to start healing from long-standing divisions and injustices.

Michael is the managing partner of Blue Courage, facilitating The HeartMath Institute in bringing HeartMath’s tools to police departments and community service agencies. He re-engineered police departments from being traditional police agencies into community-oriented departments. Blue Courage focuses on the heart and mind, which represent the foundation for making good decisions and enhancing one’s capacity to serve honorably.

Communities across the nation and abroad are calling for new strategies and policies that will bring people together and respect and honor cultural diversity. Michael will share how this co-creation process might work and why adding heart can help.

Our host, Deborah, will lead us through a heart meditation to Add Heart to the healing process of all communities and to the necessary changes that will help to bring our communities together in compassionate cooperation.

More about Michael Nila:

The Role We Play in the Emerging Values of Community

The past few months the pandemic and recent protest demonstrations have illuminated the importance of community and also where healing and cooperation are needed within our communities. Love, compassion, kindness and cooperation have been sparsely represented in our collective social consciousness for far too long. These transformative qualities of heart need to be more than spiritual ambitions, they need to become our new normal and adopted as practical street sense.

In many ways, the pandemic and the demonstrations have inspired us to reach out and care more, be vulnerable about what we’re experiencing, and realize how grateful we are to have each other. Now we’re being challenged to expand this active heart to the wider global community of all people.

In our hearts, we know we’re all connected. The hope for the future is to act on this deeper experience of heart connection and realize that if we care, we can all get along and help each other.

In this month’s Add Heart Call, we’re focusing on the new emerging values of community and how we all play a role in sustaining active heart and understanding for the whole community to co-create the highest best future for everyone.

The Power of Heart to Help Ease Stress and Challenges

Many countries and states in the USA are easing restrictions and allowing businesses to reopen, while others are still under lockdown or “sheltering in place” to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The financial consequences have been devastating. At the same time, health care workers on the front lines are concerned about a second wave of COVID-19 patients if restrictions are eased too soon.

In this special Add Heart Call, join HeartMath Inc CEO Deborah Rozman and Gayle Novack, Chief Nursing Officer and Incident Commander for Emergency Services Management at Ascension St. John Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, a COVID-19 hot spot. Deborah and Gayle will discuss the challenges we all face now during this stage of the pandemic.

Gayle has been a registered nurse for 49 years, having always worked in acute care hospitals. Much of her service has been in clinical leadership. She will share how HeartMath’s Resilience Advantage™ tools are helping health care workers. She will share stories from the front line and how health care workers are utilizing HeartMath techniques to help themselves and COVID-19 patients – techniques we can all use to maintain emotional poise and resilience during these times.

We will close with a heart meditation to send our compassion and appreciation to health care workers for their selfless care. We will also continue to fill a reservoir of heart energy that we all can draw upon during this next month to help sustain and energize our personal resilience and add much-needed compassion and care to the energetic field environment.

Developing Heart Values in Children - 100,000 Coherent Kids Initiative

Now, more than ever, children need every advantage to access their heart’s intelligent guidance to effectively navigate through our ever-changing world. In this month’s Add Heart Call, learn about the 100,000 Coherent Kids Initiative launched by the HeartMath Institute, to provide free access to a new online program: The HeartSmarts® Adventure. Offered globally, the kind of ideas and life-affirming practices taught in this fun, engaging course are part of a growing worldwide movement to help transform the lives of children and families.

Whether you have young children or grandchildren, or just want to experience the heart through the eyes of a five-year old again, The HeartSmarts® Adventure guides children through a multi-faceted exploration of their heart that teaches them how to apply heart qualities into their lives.

Creating Deeper Heart Connection and Improving Relationships

February is National Heart Month, including Valentine’s Day. What better time to talk about adding heart to our relationships.

Host Deborah Rozman’s guest this month is Dr. Lise Janelle, coach and author of Conversations with the Heart and You are Loved, and a member of the Transformational Leadership Council.

Lise will share how she works with clients to connect with the power of their heart to heal relationships and the importance of leading with the heart to create successful relationships.

Deborah will talk about two HeartMath keys for creating deeper heart connection and improving relationships:

  • Deep heart listening – Listening from your heart without interruption. Listening from a place of genuine care, even if the issues aren’t yet resolved, can provide tremendous release.
  • Compassionate latitude – Having compassion for another’s experience and what they may be feeling without judging

Compassion helps raise the vibration of the individual and collective environment. It helps us connect with our higher reasoning capacity to make smarter choices while managing the infectious waves of stress and insecurity that are on the rise.

Latitude is an attitude that includes qualities such as being less critical and more patient and tolerant with each other yet not having to agree with or condone another’s views or actions.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to amplify our hearts connections and re-energize our commitments to increasing our compassionate latitude and deep heart listening in our relationships.

The New Human Story with Gregg Braden

In his often repeated quote, Albert Einstein says, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

It’s now heart time on the planet, and individually and collectively, we have the opportunity to write the next chapter of what it means to be human.

This will be a story based on compassion, kindness, and a deep care for each other as well as our collective awakening.

Join Deborah Rozman, our Add Heart Call Host and HeartMath Inc.’s CEO, and her guest, Gregg Braden, author of Human by Design: From Evolution by Chance to Transformation by Choice. This book won the Silver Nautilus Book Award in Science and Cosmology, and his forthcoming book is called Awakening the Power of the New Human Story.

Gregg is internationally renowned as a pioneer bridging science, spirituality, and human potential.

Deborah and Gregg will talk about the new power we have to change the way we think about ourselves, our relationships, our purpose, and what it means to be alive at this time of exponential change. They will discuss why heart intelligence is key to rewiring human consciousness and reshaping our collective story.

We’ll close with a heart meditation to amplify our connection to our heart’s intelligence in the New Year. We’ll energize our individual and collective commitments to live more from the heart in 2020 and realize that we are co-creating the new human story.

Lift Global Consciousness

It’s the holiday season — a time when people all over the world celebrate holidays and connect more with their hearts as they share kindness and care.

Research findings have shown that we influence each other more than we may realize through energetic fields that surround us. Though they are invisible to most, these fields are generated from our thoughts, feelings and emotions.

In this month’s Add Heart Call, join Deborah Rozman, our host and HeartMath Inc.’s CEO, as well as her guests, HeartMath leaders Rollin McCraty — who is the HeartMath Institute director of research — and Howard Martin, HeartMath Inc.’s executive vice president. Together, they will talk about the energetic fields that surround us and the unique opportunity to utilize the amplification of the holiday energies to add more heart coherence to help lift our personal, social and global consciousness.

Together, we’ll close with a heart meditation to amplify our intentions to practice more care, compassionate latitude, patience and kindness throughout the holidays. Doing this helps lift the energy field, which makes it easier for others to feel their own hearts and a lift in their spirits. With a little practice, this can become our new way of life — a new normal — for the new year.

Refresh and Amplify Gratitude

There are moments that draw our appreciation; acknowledgment for our efforts on a project, a warm smile from someone passing by, a surprisingly quick-moving checkout line at the grocery store. We’re grateful for a beautiful day and for our loved ones. When we give appreciation to others, it uplifts them and us. Appreciation and gratitude are qualities of the heart that bring happiness.

In this month’s Add Heart Call, our host, Deborah Rozman, Ph.D. and HeartMath CEO, and our special guest, Marci Shimoff, a #1 New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason and Love for No Reason, will discuss how we can refresh and amplify our gratitude and appreciation as a daily practice.

Marci will share how gratitude affects our “happiness set-point” and why it’s so important to practice appreciation or gratitude consciously. Deborah and Marci will discuss scientific research on the impact of gratitude on our health and offer several powerful daily practices that can increase our experience of gratitude in life.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s also a good time to talk about the risks of over-giving and the challenge of receiving. Marci will share her insights on these issues.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to refresh our connection with gratitude and appreciation – and set our intention to energize these heart qualities.

Marci is a highly sought-after international speaker and the cofounder of “Your Year of Miracles.” She has penned several books, including the New York Times Bestseller Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul.

Power Up Resilience

In today’s rapidly changing world, resilience is a must-have skill. Here at HeartMath, we define resilience as the ability to prepare for, recover from, and adapt in the face of stress, challenges, or adversity.

It’s helpful to think of being resilient as a healthy way of living instead of as a needed action. While resilience is about bouncing back from unexpected challenges, we can also become so conditioned to certain daily behaviors that we don’t realize how much they drain our energy reserves.

Our Add Heart Call guest this month is Claudia Weber, an expert in the field of helping people build resilience

Claudia is an information technology manager at Intel Corporation. She helps optimize operational effectiveness and employee satisfaction — and she is a HeartMath Certified Corporate Trainer and Resilience Coach for Intel. Claudia has trained more than 2,000 corporate employees at Intel utilizing HeartMath tools and technology. As a result of the training, these employees, including many veterans, are effectively reducing stress and anxiety.

Deborah Rozman, HeartMath CEO and host of the Add Heart Calls, will discuss with Claudia how we can build more self-awareness of draining behaviors to save energy. They’ll also talk about simple, effective practices that can help us power up our resilience capacity.

We’ll close the call with a heart meditation to set our intention to add more heart power to resilience over the next month.

The Vision of Peace

People hope and pray for world peace; however, more are recognizing that peace must begin within their own hearts. Peace is not something we seek but something we can create by aligning our hearts, minds and emotions.

Join host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D, the CEO of HeartMath and our guest Sheva Carr for this month’s Add Heart Call. The International Day of Peace is September 21. Deborah and Sheva will talk about how adding heart power can create more peace within our own lives and in the world. Sheva will share some of the extraordinary (and courageous) grass roots movements happening around the world in service to and as a heart stand for peace.

Sheva is the founding Executive Director of Heart Ambassadors, The Fyera Foundation and Sunflower SunPower Kids. She is also the Co-Vice President of United Nations Peace Messenger Organization, Pathways to Peace, as well as a team member of 3x Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Scilla Elworthy’s global initiative “The Business Plan for Peace.”

Recently, Sheva was part of a team invited to present a workshop at the United Nations 2019 edition of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Learning, Training & Practices. There she shared the best practices for empowering individuals by increasing personal coherence and creating peaceful societies through peer-to-peer collaboration and coherence.

We’ll close the session with a heart-focused meditation to Add Heart to our own inner peace and to the many heart-based peace initiatives happening on the planet.

The Growing Trend of Adding Heart to Companies

The rise of employee stress has escalated to such a level that burnout is now classified as an occupational phenomenon according to the World Health Organization.

Talking about feelings or heart in a company used to be seen as weak or “touchy-feely”. Yet now we’re seeing an emerging trend – an opening of heart within companies. Mental and emotional health and the mind-body connection are becoming a critical part of a company’s overall wellness strategies.

Many companies are engaging in stress management programs that include exercise, yoga, mindfulness and meditation. Yet these programs take time and many employees don’t continue with them.

Robert Erdbrink, Director of HeartMath Benelux, is helping companies in Europe understand heart-mind-body connection and providing them with tools and technology they can use in the moment to reduce stress and burnout. The results are so significant that the entire Dutch police force has adopted this heart-based program.

Join us for this month’s Add Heart Call with Robert as our guest and our host, Deborah Rozman, Ph.D, President and CEO of HeartMath.

Robert will share inspiring stories of what the HeartMath Benelux team is achieving with companies and the opening of heart that is occurring in Europe.

Using Social Media to Uplift Humanity and Add More Heart to Your Connections

Social media is a major influence in the lives of many people. It is an avenue for self-expression, a place to connect with others, and be swayed by others’ likes and posts. Social media isn’t just a place for videos, memes and small talk. It often shapes how people view the world. Social media is an important avenue to add heart and nurture our personal connections and the causes we care about. It has the potential to create networks of people who want to help uplift each other and humanity.

In this Add Heart Call, host Deborah Rozman and her guest, social media expert and author, Mari Smith, will talk about how to use social media in positive ways that connect us more deeply with each other and the planet.

We’ll close our Add Heart Call with a heart-focused meditation to deepen and increase the heart we’re adding to our connection with ourselves, and each other.

How to Add Heart to Health

When it comes to our health or the health of someone we care about, it’s important to create an environment where heart qualities of care, kindness and compassion are part of our healing plan.

Our topic this month is Add Heart to Health, and our guest, Tim Culbert, MD, is Medical Director of Integrative Services, at Prairie Care Medical Group in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and co-founder of new website www.naturalmentalhealth.com.

Join Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., the host of our monthly Add Heart Calls, and her guest Dr. Tim Culbert, to learn new ways you can add heart to your health and the health care of others.

Dr. Culbert will talk about how he “adds heart” to his own personal wellness practices and how he teaches his patients, whether adults or children, to do the same, with amazing benefits.

Self-management skills and tools for increasing heart power and coherence give us a sense of control over our health journey and process.

Whether you are the patient, the family caregiver, or the health care professional, heart-intelligent strategies elevate our ability to care for and heal our self, our family or our patients from a foundation of love and compassion.

You’ll also enjoy learning about a growing community of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers who are committed to heart-based medicine and helping it to expand into a worldwide initiative.

We’ll close our Add Heart Call with a heart-focused meditation to increase the heart we’re adding to our own health and to the health of those we care about.

About Dr. Tim Culbert:
Dr. Culbert is a presenter for the HeartMath certification course for health professionals, called HeartMath Interventions.

A Growing Need for Compassionate Latitude

Sparking this month’s Add Heart Call discussion, is the growing need for “compassionate latitude” for others and for ourselves. In a just-released Gallup poll, more than half of Americans are reporting record levels of stress and worry. Rising stress levels are also occurring in the UK and Europe with uncertainty about the future of Brexit and polarizing politics of separation vs. inclusiveness.

Deborah Rozman and her guest, Gavin Andrews, Managing Director of HeartMath® UK and Ireland, will talk about the importance of having “compassionate latitude” during these times, what that really means and how to practice it to the benefit of all. Gavin will talk about the impact of these changes in the UK. He’ll also share about a simultaneous new awakening to heart awareness and connection that’s bringing hope to many.

Compassion is one of the highest supportive energetics of love, but compassion can easily slide into unmanaged empathy or pity. Adding the qualities of latitude and allowance can lift our compassion to a higher vibration. As we practice compassionate latitude, it provides us with a larger, nonjudgmental perspective and an unconditional love and desire for the highest outcome for situations and all concerned.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to lift our vibration and add heart-powered intention to our practice of compassionate latitude in all our interactions. This includes how we interact with our self.

In addition to being the Managing Director of HeartMath UK and Ireland, Gavin Andrews is also a consultant, coach and trainer specializing in leadership/management development and performance. He is a firm believer in authentic self-leadership and the use of emotional self-regulation and positive psychology to achieve resilience and high performance.

Why Today’s Stress Is Different and How to Stay Resilient

Have you found that your efforts to relieve stress don’t seem to be working as well as they used to? Perhaps it’s because today’s stress is different than even a few years ago.

April is National Stress Awareness month and we’re excited to have as our guest, Heidi Hanna, Ph.D., executive director of the American Institute of Stress, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness about stress and educating medical practitioners, scientists, health care professionals and the public about the effects of stress. Heidi is also a HeartMath® Certified Trainer who teaches “Stress Mastery.” She will be joining our host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., President of HeartMath for this month’s Add Heart Call.

Heidi and Deborah will talk about why being aware of our stress is important, but more importantly they’ll share strategies that allow us to take charge of stress from the inside out.

Most stress interventions provide only temporary relief and the next day we’re back in the stress bath. This is due to the cumulative effect of ongoing stress and anxiety. In this Add Heart Call, Deborah and Heidi will be talking about simple and proven ways to prevent and release today’s stress accumulation by opening the heart, reducing drama, and practicing compassion and self-compassion.

Join us for this uplifting call on transforming stress and riding the waves of change.

We’ll close this Add Heart Call with a heart-meditation that we will do together, and you can use anytime for releasing and preventing stress, and for making effective choices.

How To Recharge Your Inner Battery

With spring just one day away, we thought it’s a great time to talk about how we can recharge and renew.

Each day we start out with a fresh charge to our personal energy – much like the battery in our phone. As we go through the day, we encounter many things that use up our personal energy.

Some situations drain our energy, such as heated conversations, worry over the people or situations we care about, frustration and impatience regarding projects at work, or issues in our personal lives.

How fast we run through our personal energy has a lot to do with our ability to recover and recharge our inner battery in real-time.

Our Add Heart Call guest this month is Rich Diviney, former Navy SEAL Commander and a HeartMath® Certified Trainer.

Rich and Deborah will talk about the unique and powerful recovery tools that Rich provides leaders to quickly recover and recharge their inner battery. He’ll share how he introduced his SEAL Team to “micro-recovery” using heart coherence skills to manage their energy and de-stress after being ramped up in a highly charged state.

Learn how you can apply these same skills to your own charged situations so you can take charge, recover, and renew before or after any stressful event.

Rich draws upon 20+ years of experience as a Navy SEAL Officer where he completed more than 13 overseas deployments – 11 of which were to Iraq and Afghanistan. Through his career, he achieved multiple leadership positions – including the Commanding Officer of a Navy SEAL Command. It has been this experience that has forged in his belief system that every human being has a purpose and the importance of heart powered energy management.

It’s Heart Month – Join Us as We Celebrate the Heart in All of Us!

This month we’re celebrating the heart in all of us. Deborah Rozman and Dr. Jean Watson will talk about how qualities of the heart can heal and neutralize feelings of stress and overload when things get tough.

They will discuss how daily practice of heart attributes gives us a deeper sense of self-security and balance, and acts as a first line of defense against stress and overwhelm. Operating from the heart provides an internal navigation system for wiser responses to each situation.

We are honored to have Dr. Jean Watson as our guest. Dr. Watson’s life career has been devoted to the phenomena of human caring and inner subjective feelings, emotions, and experiences. Her Caring Science model seeks to restore the profound nature of caring-healing and brings the ethic and ethos of Love back into healthcare. She is a Living Legend with the American Academy of Nursing and holds 15 Honorary Doctorates. She’s authored 30+ books, and her new release, Unitary Caring Science, received the American Journal of Nursing’s Book of the Year award. As Director of the Watson Caring Science Institute and a Distinguished Professor of Nursing, her research, theory and methods are used in 1000’s of nursing schools and health care systems world-wide, and appeal to people in all walks of life.

Personal Reset – Energizing and Renewing Important Commitments and Insights

This month we’ll be talking about reset, a simple, yet powerful process that can assist us now and throughout the year.

We can learn to consciously reset our vibration to a higher frequency throughout the day. A personal reset can be used in several ways. We can reset to start fresh after closure on an issue. We can reset daily or throughout a week to re-energize important commitments. We can reset when things seem to be off-track or we need to refocus and draw in more clarity.

Genuinely desiring a heart-intelligent perspective and resetting it when needed can help us handle whatever comes up with increased efficiency and clarity.

Join Deborah Rozman and her guest, Steve Havill, for our January Add Heart Call. Steve is a conscious business leader and HeartMath® Certified Trainer and Coach/Mentor. He works with entrepreneurs and business leaders to help them express their unique purpose and to create high impact results. Steve is also the Board Chair for Conscious Capitalism in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Deborah and Steve will talk about how they use reset and what resetting for the new year means to them. Deborah will also talk about a collective reset that is building around the world and how we can individually contribute to it.

We’ll close this Add Heart Call with a heart-meditation that we will do together and that we can use throughout the year to energize our personal insights and commitments and raise our vibration so we can connect with our heart’s intuitive guidance.

Creating Social Coherence During the Holidays

Add Heart Call Host Deborah Rozman and Her Guest, Rollin McCraty, Ph.D. Executive Vice President and Director of Research, HeartMath Institute

The holiday season is here and many of us will be participating in family and social gatherings and celebrations. This is prime time to go deeper into our hearts to understand other’s concerns and amplify our care. Which is why this month’s topic is focused on Social Coherence.

Social Coherence is a harmonious alignment between friends, couples, family units, groups and organizations. Think of highly successful teams and how they pull together towards a common goal – there’s an efficient flow of energy and communication between them.

HeartMath Institute is researching the power of social coherence and seeing evidence of a positive feedback loop as individuals and groups intentionally create heart coherent energy fields, which increases our connections with each other.

Creating social coherence starts with taking responsibility for our personal energy. Deborah and Rollin will talk about how we can become more conscious of our own energies as we interact with others and resetting our energies when needed. Our love and compassion can then help to uplift others and add to our holiday events.

During the holidays, many people feel their heart’s care magnified and feel more kindness and compassion. But just as the holiday time can magnify these uplifting energies, for others it can also magnify down spiraling energy of anxiety, blame, judgement, and depression.

Our personal practice of heart coherence can have a more potent effect than we may realize to help uplift others. That’s why conscious monitoring of our personal energies is so important, especially in light of the societal temperament being in a heightened state of extremism and family gatherings where there can be polarizing views.

Rollin and Deborah will share their insights about social coherence to help us lift our vibration and help lift other’s energies too during this holiday time.

Deborah will close the Add Heart Call with a heart-meditation for social coherence. Together we’ll align our heart and mind and send compassion and love to family, friends and all people around the world his holiday season.

Gratitude — Welcome to the Brain’s Feel-Good Reward Center

Add Heart Call host Deborah Rozman HeartMath CEO and guest Gregg Braden discuss gratitude and how it can catapult us into higher brain states.

It’s Thanksgiving week in the United States and a time that people focus more on gratitude and appreciation for the good things in their lives.

Few people know that gratitude and appreciation are powerful heart energetics that actually give us access to higher brain states.

Gratitude releases a powerful, self-rewarding feel-good neurotransmitter in the brain. Gregg and Deborah will talk about recent evidence from brain-imaging studies that shows the brain’s “reward center” lighting up when we’re feeling grateful.

This discussion will deepen our understanding and heart-power our intentions to feel gratitude and appreciation for family and friends this holiday season.

Mar 17, 2021
Transforming Insecurity and Creating Self-Security

All of us need care to thrive – whether we’re receiving or giving care – it is vital to our existence. The ability to express love through our care is one of the highest attributes we have. And like most anything, care has a balance point.

Whether it’s personal, family, social issues within our community, or global issues that affect us all, when our care turns into overcare or insecurity, our energy quickly drains. This hinders our ability to be effective, even when our intentions are to care.

Overcare often disguises itself as worry, fear, anxiety and more. Yet behind it is our real care. We can learn simple strategies with heart-powered intention to transform insecurity into self-security and overcare into balanced care. These strategies can also help us learn to consciously reduce the significance that we feed into worry and fear.

This is part of our emotional maturing process – learning the energy economy of creating self-security and balanced care.

In our October Add Heart Call, our host Deborah Rozman, HeartMath CEO, and her guest Owen Ward, HeartMath Chief Strategy Officer, will talk about creating self-security and transforming insecurity. They’ll share how balanced care has helped them become more attuned to intuitive intelligence to guide their choices in each situation.

We’ll close with a heart-meditation to align our heart and mind and connect with our balanced care as a replacement attitude for insecurity, worry and other forms of overcare.

Finding the Gifts Within Stillness

Stillness is an energetic quality that we can find – even in the midst of a busy day. It is a regenerative gift that only takes a sincere moment or two to access yet can change the course of our day.

When we connect with inner stillness, we create a space to declutter our mind and hear our heart’s intuitive guidance.

Stillness is an ancient practice, but so easy to dismiss in modern times. You’ve likely read about it in countless books and blogs as an important aspect of prayer or meditation. Recent scientific studies have validated the benefits of this ancient practice. Stillness allows us to truly know our self beyond our mind, thoughts and ego, it is also very beneficial to our brain’s health and has been found to generate new cells in the brain that are linked to learning and emotion.

In our September Add Heart Call, our host Deborah Rozman, HeartMath CEO, and her guest Robert Browning, Director, HeartMath Health Partners, will talk about why it’s especially important in an emotionally-charged and rapidly changing world to create space for inner stillness and how to do it.

The simple inner stillness practice they will share with you allows heart, mind and emotions to experience a time-out from competing against each other and enjoy some casual peace together.

They’ll talk about the gifts they personally gain from this practice and how it creates a personal sanctuary while on the go.

We will close the Add Heart Call with a heart meditation to create a reservoir of inner stillness we can each draw on as we practice this restorative energetic quality together over the next month.

“Inner stillness creates an energetic environment for supporting our advancing consciousness which can unleash the transformational power of our love – Doc Childre, Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart
