“Heart Brain”

With the solstice, the increase of solar energy is both energizing and when the heat really comes to Texas, it can be challenging. Our heart activation will focus on balancing the increased energy surrounding us and channeling it to enhance a harmonious state.  I have been following Greg Braden and he talks about the “heart brain” – it has been discovered that the heart has neurons that are in constant communication with the brain and that the heart energy field is larger than that of the brain. Also, it has been found that there are neurons in the heart.

The electromagnetic field of the brain and the heart are important organizing energetic avenues of our entire being, physical and subtle. Interesting that this was known long ago in a less technical way. Chi Gong is a movement wisdom-tradition designed to enhance our energetic self-regulation. Chi Gong practices provide us with an intuitive approach to connect to these subtle layers of our body and bring us to wholeness.

Just as the seasons shift with movement, our life is cyclic and we need to replenish and nurture ourselves in all kind of cycles, days, weeks, months, years. Our heart activation offers a clearing of energies so that our mind, spirit, and body release the increasing levels of stress as the pace of life seems to get faster and faster.  Greg Braden mentions many studies that have linked stress to cell aging. Chi Gong is longevity nurturing and our practice will share de-stressing movement meditation sequences to ease you into feeling deeply nourished and rejuvenated. As you shine your heart light, you will create ripples that will nurture our collective heart fields to support our journey to a balanced state of bliss.

OUR GIFT to you : We invite you to come and experience a series of classes designed to attune you to the seasonal shifts by gently centering, grounding you into your wholeness and inner peace.

We believe that peace starts in our own energy fields and that it ripples out into the world touching others in intangible ways. Come and enhance your energetic flows to renew, refresh, detox, and de-stress. Come out once a month to re-boot neuro-pathways and flow in a stream of delicious chi bliss.

Looking forward to your heart-smiles.

Prevent, Intervene and Heal the Effects of Bullying

Author: eltuleinstitutenonprofit  //  Category: Life Skills


This week, our board member and co-founder, Dr. Deborah Healy, was interviewed by News4 San Antonio on the topic of bullying, a behavior that has increased not only  among youth but also among adults, as we have seen with the recent reports of bullying occurring within the football industry.

Please clink on the link below to view the complete interview with Dr. Healy:

Bullying, on an energetic level, is the  projection of energy through behaviors that have at their heart, the negative intention of harming another person’s esteem and core energy. Bullying can occur in many forms including ostracizing, criticizing, physically intimidating, verbally attacking or emotionally demeaning others.

When people experience bullying, they may  feel a decline in their energy life force.  This decline can lead to depression, lack of self esteem, lack of interest in life, feelings of isolation and suicidal thoughts.

Dr. Healy emphasizes the importance of prevention in terms of educating young people and adults about bullying by:

  • Cultivating skills and tools that allow one to recognize when bullying is occurring.
  • Encouraging people to act or speak out when they are observing or experiencing bullying.
  • Building self esteem and positive social connections that allow people to resist bullying.

She also speaks about the need for appropriate interventions to help those who have experienced bullying, as well as getting help for those who are choosing to solve problems by engaging in bullying behaviors.
