In 2016 we saw the loss of many beloved celebrities to a common preventable condition: heart disease. Heart disease knows no bounds when it comes to claiming lives. Whether it’s former First Lady, Nancy Reagan, a Star Wars princess, Carrie Fisher, a talented musician, George Michael, America’s favorite TV mom, Florence Henderson, or one of America’s well-known TV dads, Alan Thicke, heart disease tugs on our heartstrings when it takes its toll. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that heart disease is the number one killer in the U.S., according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), rounding out at the top with the likes of cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases and accidents all drowning in its wake. However, heart disease is preventable and with all preventable diseases, it begins internally with a revolution of the self, a revolution of the heart.
Mindfulness is awareness, awareness of something, an awareness of thyself. Holistic healing begins from the inside out and with heart disease being the number one cause of death it only makes sense to start with the muscular organ responsible for providing us with the benefaction of life. While the mechanics of the heart have been studied for eons and billions of dollars spent from technology and pharmaceutical companies alike cardiovascular disease remains the number one cause of death. Clearly, we don’t understand it all or maybe we’re just not focusing on the whole of the problem. Wholly understanding heart health begins with wholly understanding the heart. Scientific research is but one facet of the complex cardiovascular enigma – there is also the emotional facet and the spiritual facet of the heart.
Often, it’s been said to take a step back and look at the bigger picture in order to get another perspective on the crux of a problem and that’s exactly what the Heart Revolution will be doing. The Heart Revolution will be an online digital summit beginning on February 25th and running through March 5th. During this time we will explore other dimensions of the heart utilizing an arsenal of medical trailblazers, scientific researchers, heart conscious speakers, heart activists, indigenous spiritualists and heart-language specialists. Learn how to revolutionize the heart by discovering how to protect the emotional and spiritual aspects of the heart.
