Meet Your Guides: Susanna and Puran Bair


Susanna and Puran Bair are the creators of Heart Rhythm Meditation and the authors of three books, including spiritual classics “Living From The Heart” and “Energize Your Heart.” These works have now been translated into the Mandarin Chinese language for the first time.

Susanna and Puran founded iamHeart, the Institute for Applied Meditation on the Heart, and later established The University of the Heart. They have worked with leading researchers to measure the effects of meditation on heart rhythm, brain waves, light emission, and electromagnetism, demonstrating mastery of both transcendent and heart-centered meditation techniques.

Susanna and Puran have been honored to receive the Alyce and Elmer Green Award for Innovation from the International Society for Subtle Energy and Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM), whose past recipients include Dr. Delores Krieger, Dr. Norman Shealy, and Joseph Chilton Pierce.



Praise for iamHeart Group Retreats




"I came to the retreat feeling very confused. I had a burning in my throat, heart palpitations, and an overwhelming sense of anxiety about the state of my life. I can not express how wonderful each and every person was. So warm, so loving, so welcoming. I felt free to speak my mind with no threat of judgment or criticism. The meditations were moving, deep, and effective. I am leaving the retreat with a new family. I feel more grounded, have a greater clarity of my direction, and a better sense of who I am, what I want, and the greatness that I can give. And a bonus...My heart palpitations are gone!"

- Amy Bassett-Wells, Teacher

"Deeply transforming, full of fun and ecstasy."

- Steven Winn, Entrepreneur

"This retreat was BIG! I loved the presence of Susanna and Puran. Sun-gazing - something I had rejected in the past - was a brilliant surprise. The experience I had of being one with the Universe and the One was ecstatic and a blessing I will harvest all of my life. Thank you. The heart is the path to our personal and collective salvation."

- Pam Hale Trachta, Spiritual Mentor and Author

"This morning's sunrise meditation I was rebirthed. I thought there was a second sun above me and I realized it was me."

- Steve Paulk, Teacher and Healer

"I had been searching and longing for spiritual development for a long time and when I found IAM Heart I knew it was the answer to my search. The retreats have been life enhancing and transformative for me by helping open my heart which had been closed for much of my life."

- Dee O'Neil, Attorney


"This was life-changing."

- Margaret O'Connor, Psychotherapist


What Happens on an iamHeart Retreat?


A regular practice of Heart Rhythm Meditation brings the incredible experience of being in the heart, which opens more and more to include all things and all beings. It is this experience that makes the philosophy of the heart come alive.

Led by Puran and Susanna Bair in collaboration with other iamHeart teachers, the group meditation retreat provides a setting where you have all the support you need to really deepen your experience of Heart Rhythm Meditation. For those who are new to meditation, the group retreat is a way to gain experience that will be key for progress along the spiritual path. The group retreat will lead to a real and lasting opening of your heart.

The group retreat experience includes guided meditations, partner and group exercises, lecture and discussion, walking meditation and movement, and special activities which include music, whirling, and walking on fire. Time is set aside to create friendships, discuss the teachings, and share experiences.

The group retreat vaults you ahead by creating new breakthroughs in your life, opening new levels of spiritual realization, and deepening the experience of your existing meditation practice.
