  • Heart Math Institute – We heard from Rollin McCarty in the short video about the heart. Since 1991, the HeartMath Institute has researched and developed reliable, scientifically based tools to help people bridge the connection between their hearts and minds, and deepen their connection with the hearts of others.  Their first book “Heartmath Solution” that teaches simple meditation methods to build the heart-brain connection.
  • Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary – The devotion to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary are one of the most widely practiced and well-known Roman Catholic devotions. This can be seen as the divine representation or our physical hearts.
