Typically when we meet and connect with others, it’s largely through our forebrains. We’re looking to see who’s safe, where there’s a connection, what we have in common… generally things that involve thinking. However, another level connection comes from the heart.

Heart Breathing is a practice I occasionally teach to clients, and also in workshops where I help people communicate with ease and from the whole self. Even in formal business settings, it radically changes people’s interactions – it starts as a meditation, but also can be used to enhance heartfelt communication.

  1. Sit up straight with your feet flat on the floor, and close your eyes.
  2. Begin taking long, deep breaths. If like, place a hand or two over your heart.
  3. As you breathe in, visualize breathing in through your heart. On the exhale, imagine exhaling out of your heart. Practice for a few minutes.
  4. When interacting with people throughout the day, do this while you listen. They’ll feel your presence differently. As well, try to do it while talking, too.
