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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great technique The sessions were good and the presenters well spoken and knowledgeable. The supporting documents were good, but I suggest numbering them according to the session, i.e. add a #1 to all files for week one, a #2 for week 2, etc. I downloaded the files at once into a folder so while the presenters know the file names and could quickly get them, the documents were all new and it took some time to find the right one, which often meant the presenter was moving forward while I was still trying to get the right form. (Maybe I was supposed to pre-sort the files).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intensely satisfying This course provides an excellent overview of heart intelligence and the applications of a heart-focused approach to life. I appreciated the live online classes and opportunities to practice with classmates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Learning The concepts and the techniques we learnt are really helpful to overcome challenges in work and life. Practical, simple and but very powerful tools to change our perspectives and behaviour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Potentially life changing This is a program that provides you with tools to get to know yourself on a deeper level aswell as regulate your emotions and alter your physiology towards more balance. The techniques is simple (so simple that it seems crazy that they really work as good as they does) enough for everyone to use it. As in everything, you get what you invest. If you are sincere in your practice and apply the techniques frequently it is indeed life changing. If you use them once in a while - it gives you a great stress management tool and if you rarely use it - don't bother. So before investing - be honest and sincere with yourself - if you are willing to commit to create more empowering habits and making a lifestyle change. The weekly group calls have been one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever had on the internet. Where people are sharing their insights and challenges in the most vulnerable way while supporting and being supported. Such a blessing to be part of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really is life changing! Definitely less stress and better sleep. I've improved in how I manage stressful situations and am able create more ease for myself in the moment. Co-workers have noticed that I'm calmer and seem to deal with things more efficiently at work. I really struggled with being exhausted mentally and physically by the end of the day, and now I can say that after taking this course I have gained a tremendous amount of resilience -- I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't experienced it for myself!
