Dr. Rollin McCraty | Heart vs Brain (One Is More Powerful)
In today’s episode we’re going to focus on the heart, an organ with an amazing influence over our mental lives. We all learned in biology class about how the heart pumps our blood throughout our body. We have been taught that it is only our brain that is in control, while the rest of our body obediently responds to its commands.
However, research over the last few decades has shown that the heart has neural and bioelectromagnetic influence upon our brains. There is a profound communication link between the heart and the brain and incredibly while messages flow in both directions, surprisingly, more information seems to originate from the heart.
Research has revealed the heart even radiates an influence on those around us via electromgnetic fields. Research has also shown the heart to be approximately 60 times greater electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain.
Lee Holden | Don’t Push The River The Secret Power of Qigong
If our bodies are made of energy might there be a way to manage and even manipulate that energy to heal our bodies and create the health and vitality we so desire?
The ancient Chinese energy practice of qi gong says that you can.
I wanted to dive into the deep end of qi gong and understand how to better use the energy in my body and even increase the energy in my body.

Impressed at how these ancient practices healed his body and allowed him to return to playing, he made their study a priority.
