HeartMind for Educators
At HeartMind we believe that teachers and nurses should be the most venerated members of society, when, however, we worship those who just generate profit.David Ward
Rapid changes in the Education systems, often politically driven, are producing almost constant stress. More testing, more administration, more paperwork, shortening budgets are only some of the factors. More is expected of us in ever shortening time-scales.
The stress effects our professional and personal lives, it effects our decisions, our choices, our professional attitudes, our communications with colleagues and most of all our work with those that we care for and are supposed to be teaching.
Constant change of concepts, techniques and technology take their toll on not just teaching but also administration and support staff, who all care deeply but are becoming very stressed.
In organisations this results in reduced efficiency, increased absenteeism and difficult relationships. All these create declining performance, inefficient meetings and often the fear of our jobs.
As individuals practice the HeartMind techniques with the biofeedback systems, they are able to see and experience the changes in their heart rhythm patterns. The patterns become smoother and more wave-like as a person feels appreciation and other positive attitudes and emotions. This process reinforces an association in the brain between heart balance and positive feelings.
At HeartMind Finland we are developing a comprehensive education system that will mirror the great success achieved in the USA and other countries. HeartMind integrates the very latest research into neuroscience, positive psychology, biofeedback, psychophysiology, heart energies, immunology and computer technology to achieve these goals of wellbeing Learn more here
