I sometimes feel tension when metaphysical concepts are presented in scientific ways. Part of me wants to believe that such things can be measured and documented. And yet I often find the presentation of such evidence lacking in substance.
Perhaps the science of it is less important than the resulting experience. There is something very humanizing about tuning into the body and literally listening to your heart. This in itself creates a level of presence conducive to more harmonious interaction. There is a literal “listening to oneself” that occurs – with sensitivity to the heart, there is sensitivity to a wide array of other emotions and experiences in the inner landscape.
My guest this week is Tyler Mongan. Tyler is a Ph.D. candidate researching the application of neuroscience and heart-brain communication in the global business landscape. He has facilitated over 100 innovation and strategy experiences around the world and he consults high-growth start-ups, fortune 500 companies, and government agencies on how to apply human physiology to innovation and strategic planning.
Much of our conversation revolves around Tyler’s application of research from the Heartmath Institute – one of the more seemingly legitimate sources of metaphysical documentation. We get into some of the research and specific practices that Tyler uses to facilitate heart centered collaborative workshops in the corporate world.
