"Heart-based living is about including your heart’s intuition

as you navigate through life’s relationships and events.
This brings balance to your mind and emotions and unfolds your authentic self."
– Doc Childre, founder of HeartMath

 

Dr. Sheryl Beller Kenner, Naturopath & Certified HeartMath® Coach

 

INTRODUCTION

"Heart-based living," IHM founder Doc Childre wrote, "helps you learn to live in the now, bringing more of your real self into each moment. Becoming more of who you really are releases inner security, allowing you to relate to life with increased hope and confidence. Increased fulfillment is the result of this process. When all of our intentions and actions in daily life originate from the intuitive wisdom of our hearts, when we feel and act with sincere appreciation, caring and kindness for others – all qualities of the heart – and when we can observe the world around us without the preset judgments of the mind, but rather with the compassion in our hearts, then we will truly be living life from the heart.

The HeartMath® system is a scientifically-validated system of tools, techniques and computer-based technology – proven to be effective in stress reduction, learning and performance management to manage your emotions and improve health and relationships. With HeartMath®’s patented heart rhythm monitoring systems, you’ll be able to actually see your heart rate patterns plotted in real time.

HeartMath® exercises are designed to bring us into a state of personal coherence. Personal coherence, also known as psycho-physiological coherence, refers to the synchronization of our physical, mental and emotional systems. It can be measured by our heart-rhythm patterns: The more balanced and smooth they are, the more in sync, or coherent, we are. Stress levels recede, energy levels increase, and our brain and what HeartMath® calls the "heart brain" are working together. It is a state of optimal clarity, perception and performance. HeartMath® tools and technology have been scientifically proven to help us shift our attitudes and emotions in order to achieve personal coherence.

Although rhythmic breathing exercises can help control your heart rate and have a calming effect on the body, shifting your attitudes and emotions require more. Research shows the key to learning how to neutralize and counter the effects of stress is by actively adding a heart-based, positive feeling such as appreciation, care and compassion to the process. Experiencing positive emotions has a much broader range of health and wellness benefits than simply forcing the system into coherence through rhythmic breathing. Generating feelings of appreciation, care or compassion adds a dynamic element for stress management. Using the HeartMath® biofeedback device in conjunction with generating positive emotions helps synchronize your nervous system and creates positive changes in your heart-rhythm patterns to create and sustain the coherence needed for short-term and long-term anxiety and stress relief and improved overall health.

 

DESCRIPTION

The course will take place at BelArome Holistic Centre in NDG, Montreal, for 5 weeks on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month from 7:00 - 9:00 PM starting on Mar 24, 2015 (Remaining dates are: Apr 7, Apr 21, May 5, and May 19).  Use of the HeartMath® biofeedback technology is an important part of being able to measure your coherence in real time, and so it is required for you to have one.  If you already have a HeartMath® device – either an emWave or an Inner Balance machine -- please bring it with you to the first session; if you need to purchase one, please call ahead so that the appropriate one can be ordered and ready for you to use on the first day of class (If you are not sure which one you need, please call Sheryl at 514.481.9355).

 

IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?

If you answered yes to three or more of the following questions, there’s a good chance you are experiencing some degree of chronic stress or anxiety. But take heart: You can control your stress and HeartMath® will definitely help.

- Irritability: Shorter fuse these days, the little things make you angrier?

- Sense of humor: Laughing less, too serious?

- Worry: Reliving or projecting future anxious emotional experiences? Depressed, resigned over the way things are?

- Excessiveness: Eating, drinking too much, too many mood-altering stimulants?

COURSE FACILITATOR: 

 

Dr. Sheryl Beller-Kenner, Certified HeartMath Coach & Naturopath

 

Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said, “A weed is a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered”,  I have spent much time over the past 20 years making healing preparations from the gifts of the  plants. And I have discovered, “If you listen, they will teach you.”

 

Learning is about mindful listening. I have received my naturopathic training from various places in order to develop a well-rounded approach to complementary health care. I received my certification as a Chartered Herbalist (designation of CH) from Dominion Herbal College in British Columbia, Canada, as an aromatherapist who does aromatherapy massage (designation of CAHP) from Ontario, Canada, as a foot reflexologist (designation of RCRT) and a Level II Reiki practitioner, from here in Montreal, Canada.  My work in Spiritual Phytoessencing with Dr. Bruce Berkowsky and earned designation as a registered Spiritual PhytoEssencing practitioner(R.SPE.P.) and Group Training Leader, has taught me how to take my work with essential oils and with clients to a much higher, much more spiritual level. In addition, my training as a Certified HeartMath Provider has given me the tools to help all of my clients and students relieve the stress that causes emotional, physical, mental and spiritual imbalances. I am currently a member in good standing of five professional organizations in order to stay current in my field and to support the professionalism and standards of CAM.

 

Teaching is also about mindful listening. For over 35 years, I have been teaching people of all ages all over North America. I currently offer introductory and professional certification courses in aromatherapy, herbology and reflexology right here in Montreal.

 

Working with clients is also about heart-based listening. In addition to being the full-time director of BelArôme Holistic Health Centre and the Montreal HeartMath Stress Reduction Clinic, I run a thriving private practice. I support all of my clients in getting in touch with their hearts and the ‘small spark within’ and showing them how this can lead them to a well-balanced, calm, healthy lifestyle.

 

If we open our minds and our hearts, we will discover that we have everything we need right here in front of us. Join me! You can find out more about my services at www.belarome.com. I can be reached at sheryl@belarome.ca or on 514 481-9355.
