Dr. Robert H. Schneider, M.D., renowned research scientist, educator, and author, will first discuss how this "brain-heart" connection can be used to reduce stress in the individual, and the profound impact this can have on overall heart health; and secondly, how the brain can receive a positive type of influence that not only produces measurable changes in brain wave coherence, but also produces a subjective experience of an expanded state of awareness, or consciousness.
