Being out of balance is serious business, especially when it occurs over extended periods of time. The HeartMath Solution says "it's a vicious circle: stress destroys coherence, and incoherence causes stress." Stress is much more dangerous than we've thought. Even an occasional stressful experience has damaging effects on our bodies. Come back into joyous health, well-being, and sacred connection. Reserve your spot at:
