Unveiling the Global Consciousness Project 2.0: A Journey Towards Unity and Understanding

What is the Global Consciousness Project 2.0?

The Global Consciousness Project 2.0 (GCP 2.0) is a research-based journey into understanding the depths of our connection with the world around us. By delving into the intricate relationship between individual and global consciousness, the project seeks to explain how our shared experiences and intentions can shape our world – even helping to bridge divides and promote greater care and well-being globally.

As we examine the impacts of large-scale emotional events and collective heart-focused meditations on the global consciousness field, it encourages us to ponder our own capacity to influence positive change on a grand scale and inspires us to envision a world where our collective heart-based intentions pave the way for a brighter future for humanity.

HeartMath and Mental Health for Teens in Minnesota

HeartMath and Mental Health for Teens in Minnesota

Our story with the St. Louis County School district of northeast Minnesota begins during School Year 2022 with the outreach of local social worker and Project AWARE Mental Health coordinator Alicia Dick, who contacted us in hopes to incorporate self-regulation techniques and heart-rate variability (HRV) measurements in her expanding work with students and staff within the county’s schools.

Funded by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, also referred to as the SAHMSA grant, the district purchased a set of emWave Pro devices for district support staff who work with individuals and groups of students across the county. We conducted three professional development sessions virtually during the school year and stayed in close contact with the project lead as she organized and expanded their well-being efforts throughout their schools. Some schools created regulation rooms where they invited students to take a moment to calm themselves or get ready for an upcoming test, sporting event, or perhaps even an important conversation. HeartMath techniques, including Heart-Focused Breathing™ and Quick Coherence™, were offered as optional tools. The emWave Pro’s built-in games supported students’ regulation and building of inner coherence.

Imagining a consultation with the leaders of the world’s wealthiest countries: "What would we want them to know? What would we advise them to do with their resources?"

Compassionate Latitude, Navigating Life With Our Hearts Leading the Way

In these times of uncertainty, the need to show compassionate latitude towards others and ourselves is of utmost importance. It carries with it an attitude of understanding that most people are doing the best they can based on their stress overload, anxiety, and the clouded thinking so many are experiencing. The need for more compassion and latitude is a profound necessity that emerges as we witness rising stress levels, global discontent, and ever-widening divides among individuals, communities and nations.

Heart Coherence Training May Reduce the Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

In a recent report by the Alzheimer’s Association, it was revealed that over 6 million people in America are currently living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). This devastating disease slowly erodes the minds of people we love and care for, but a ray of hope has emerged with a groundbreaking study that suggests heart coherence training developed by HeartMath Institute (HMI) may offer help to millions of individuals and potentially reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Heart coherence refers to a specific rhythmic pattern of heart rate variability (HRV), which is the variation in the time intervals between consecutive heartbeats – the beat-to-beat changes. To achieve heart rhythm coherence, individuals are guided to consciously slow their breathing while engaging in specific techniques developed by HeartMath. These techniques typically involve slow-paced heart-focused breathing while self-generating positive emotions such as calmness, gratitude, appreciation, or compassion.
