Table of Contents
by Deborah Rozman
In a time when we are trying to teach more “stuff” in schools, Deborah Rozman reminds us that lasting learning involves a balance of both head and heart.
“Heart” is a word that describes many things. On a physical level, the heart pumps blood through the body. We look to the heart as a source of wisdom when we say, “Go deep in your heart for an answer,” and a source of power when we say, “Put your heart into it.” The heart is sung about, talked about, philosophized about, and is at the core of every religion. But what is the heart, really? Webster's dictionary defines the heart as the center of the total personality, especially with reference to intuition, feeling, or emotion, and as a source of strength and courage. At the Institute of HeartMath (IHM), we have spent more than a decade studying the nature of the heart to understand what facilitates people's happiness and fulfillment. Our psychological and scientific research has uncovered the heart as a source of both intelligence and power. Subtle heart feelings are what unlock the doorway to insight, self-empowerment, and the joy of discovery.
