Building Personal Resilience™ A HeartMath® Certification Program

For mentors, coaches, facilitators, instructors, consultants and others who work in one-on-one or small group settings

The Building Personal Resilience certification will teach you a science-based skill set, enabling you to guide others through a heart-centered transformational process.

You will help clients apply these heart-focused practices in their day-to-day lives. As individuals increase their heart-brain coherence, they retrain their stress response—a key to sustainable behavioral change and resilience.

Many clients report an increased sense of self-security, calm and composure, along with greater intuitive capacities and more discernment in decision-making. Others report experiencing a deeper connection with "who they really are", along with more energy to invest in the things that matter most to them.

In its seventh year, this newly revised and upgraded course uses multiple modalities to create an energetic learning experience that engages all learners.
