The Origins of Heart Rhythm Meditation

Basic Rhythms

Our mother's heartbeat is our earliest experience in the womb.

Our first breath is experienced as we exit her womb, and our last breath defines the end of our life.

It must have been one of the earliest observances of ancient contemplatives that the body has two rhythms: the breath rate and the heartrate, the coordination of which produces an experience of integration that is essentially spiritual.

This is the essence of Heart Rhythm Meditation, and it emerges in the descriptions of the meditations of every tradition.

At IAM we have further developed Heart Rhythm Meditation using scientific instrumentation and research which confirms its benefits to our physical and emotional bodies.


The heart is the first organ to form.
