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.

The Building Personal Resilience Certification Course

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Building Personal REsilience Just what everyone needs to make it through life...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring beyond expectation! HearthMath is an incredibly subtle system that has momentous impacts in beautiful ways when you practice it consistently and with authenticity. The BPR course was masterfully facilitated by Sarah and Tricia who were such marvelous role models - guiding us and receiving us with great compassion and encouragement all along. The combination of teaching videos, live class discussions, opportunity to practice with partners, the requirement to practice with clients, and tools for developing my own practice was an excellent formula for me to learn the material from a lot of different angles. I will admit I was wondering how it could really do anything, but in staying with it, I learned how deep the work actually goes, and how it can change life in surprisingly unexpected positive ways. I am incredibly grateful, and very much looking forward to sharing this with more clients. Thank you HeartMath TEAM for such wonderful support and inspiration!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly life changing Even for those not looking to make a career of mentoring, this course is a MUST take. I understand the distaste some may have for hyperbole, but I assure you this is not. I cannot overstate the significance of what these simple techniques have done to improve my life. I have been able to create an entirely new baseline of functioning after lifelong PTSD. I am more at peace, happier, and more productive than I have ever been in my life. I really hope this reaches people. This can truly change your life.
