Raise Consciousness, create heart coherence, heal and rewrite your life stories; when Science and Spirituality meet in Real time to understand the true power of the heart.  Yes.

Welcome back to 40 for Tea Podcast: Here it is Cuppa 39 of 40, yeay!  Host Rachel Allan shares tea with Sheva Carr & Robert Browning of the world renowned Heart Math Institute.

We unwrap the profound wisdom of the heart, diving into topics that bridge our understanding of its impact far beyond a mere biological pump. Discover the heart's 'little brain,' explore the power of cardiac coherence, and learn how our heart rhythms can harmonise our entire being, shape our perceptions and influence our emotional landscapes.

Hear personal stories of overcoming trauma, fostering joy, and embracing the complexity of relationships and the world with love.  Before we move to a live technique with a heart coherence practice. These tools are designed to guide us out of survival mode and into thriving existence using breathwork and the intentional cultivation of positive emotions.

There's so much more - consciousness, belonging and home... as the penny drops on what matters.

Rach asks us who to have for cuppa 40? Do you want to join her, or have a recommendation for this final tea?

In the meantime, GO GRAB that Cuppa, and let's dive in.
