What is Heartfulness?

Heartfulness is a simple and practical way to experience the heart’s unlimited resources. Heartfulness embraces the role of the heart in self-development.

Heartfulness : Living by the Heart
By tuning in to our heart, we learn to be centered in our highest self.
Strengthen that connection and cultivate an inner knowing that wisely directs and guides our lives. Grow to face the challenges of life with courage and acceptance. Live by the heart, and become what we’re meant to be.

What are the benefits of practicing Heartfulness?

Development of internal skills such as clarity of mind, self-confidence, empathy, awareness and focus are just a few of the benefits of Heartfulness relaxation and meditation. Our unique cleaning technique helps in liberating oneself from those hard-to-get-rid-of habits and tendencies. We also experience higher energy in our activities and a great sense of purpose and fulfillment. In a nutshell, it strengthens our strengths, weakens our weaknesses and makes us more holistic.

People who practice Heartfulness experience:
  • Increased empathy, tolerance and compassion
  • Greater ability to feel more relaxed and calm
  • clarity and better focus
  • Work more effectively and efficiently
  • Work-life balance
  • Increased professional resiliency and better stress management
  • Improved teamwork and communication
  • Increased happiness and joy promoting healthier relationships

How can I learn Heartfulness practices?

Feel the lightness and joy of your true nature. Heartfulness meditation is simply taking the time every day to tune into that internal presence.

Heartfulness Institute has partnered with the Annenberg Institute for development of medical care professionals to offer Heartfulness courses with CME credits to physicians/nurses/psychologists designed specifically for people who work in healthcare.

Continue to provide sessions for all providers and online tools

Dr. Karen Held

Excellent and helpful presentations on the value and importance of wellness and meditation

Dr. Victoria Vurrutia

Very useful keys to tune into my heart for work life balance

Dr. Giselle Joseph

Session on Burnout was well-balanced with the evidence based materials. Practical applications were good

Dr. R Benenson

It was nice to actually explain the steps of meditation and practice them, instead of being given purely academic information

Dr. Keith Banneder

Very Enlightening Program

Dr. Barbara Killian

All the presenters and presentations were excellent. It was an enriching experience

Dr. Anjali Chananan

I have attended several conferences, this was the best. I could connect with the simplicity and authenticity of the presenter and got several moments of reflection and fine tuning

Dr. Lucy Misra

It was a heartwarming, peaceful couple of days. Loved every minute of being amongst people who understood, and prevailed in harmony and happiness. Grounding myself before entering each patient room. Take mind reset breaks. Approach irate patients with compassion- make a human connection- not that I haven't been doing that

Dr. Smritirekha Misra

As a health psychologist, I learned invaluable tools to practice at home, with my colleagues, and of course, with my patients. In fact, I was able to use the Heartfulness relaxation meditation already today with a patient who is overcoming anxiety. The presenters were far beyond what I expected and each talk was so wonderful

Dr. Manmeet K Rattu


A monthly magazine in which we explore everything from self-development and health, relationships with family and friends, how to thrive in the workplace, to living in tune with nature.
